The Royal Maizelands are a massive group of farms, located northeast of Meridian Village.
The Maizelands were established by the second Sun-King Amavad in order to provide a reliable source of food for early Carja settlers. With a consistent source of food, the Carja were able to advance far more quickly than their neighboring tribes.
Agriculture is the foundation of the Carja economy and the Sun-King devotes a large part of the kingdom's security forces to guarding the Royal Maizelands. As the Derangement progressed, this became more challenging, although the Carja army continues to protect the area.
The Eclipse Assault
During the Eclipse's assault on Meridian, much of the Maizelands were destroyed and burned to the ground. Several dormant Deathbringers re-activated and began to consume the fields for biofuel as well.
