The Barren Wastes, or simply the Wastes, are a forlorn, desolate expanse of rock on the southern shore of the Icy Sea, expanding inland about 100 miles.


Moss and lichen are the dominant forms of plant life in the Wastes; sparse grasses and stunted trees grow in sheltered locations.

Features and settlements


The Barren Wastes are thought to have been created by a magical cataclysm centuries before the Twin Cataclysms.
