Gettlesand is a part of the Kingdom of Nerath that borders what was once the Empire of Alketch. It is the portion of the kingdom sandwiched between Dawnforge Mountains, the Round Sea, the Western Ocean and the Alketch border.
Not a very rich area, its main product was cattle, who were herded from grassland to grassland by the herdsman. Most of the cavalry of Nerath was provided from this area.
Since the invasion by the Dark, the area is sparsely populated and monsters have taken over most of the are.
