The eastern continent of San Lucas is named Hankou, and is home to the Toshi and Laohu civilizations that are embroiled in a contentious religious war to this day. Hankou is a roughly circular continent dominated by lowland jungles and a few tree-covered mountain ranges spiraling out from the single massive volcano in the continent’s center. It had been largely dormant for thousands of years when we arrived, but geological evidence showed periodic eruptions that covered the lowlands in volcanic ash over and over again. That made the lowlands amazingly fertile, and the jungles that filled them flourished. And so did the cats who lived there. It was an excellent place to grow a new civilization, as long as the volcano remained dormant.
