The Valashmai Jungle is the southernmost part of the continent of Tian Xia. It is a vast rainforest that dominates a quarter of the continent, filled with jagged volcanic mountains and seemingly endless swamps. It is a place of danger and mystery, and few who set out to explore it ever return. At its eastern border, the Valashmai peninsula connects with the Wandering Isles,[1] while to the north lie the naga realm of Nagajor and the human nation of Xa Hoi.[2]


During the Age of Serpents, the Valashmai Jungle was ruled by an empire of elementals led by the mythical Jade Hegemon. The empire collapsed due to poorly understood reasons, and its survivors are thought to have migrated into the Chenlun Mountains.[3]

In -44 AR, the otherworldly being known as Agmazar crashed into the eastern portion of the Valashmai Jungle. It was subsequently slain by the kaiju King Mogaru but rose again in its present, undead state. The specific location of its landing has yet to be discovered.[4]


The Valashmai Jungle is home to numerous intimidating monsters of vast power including colossal kaiju, mu spores, and exiled outsiders. More mundane, but no less deadly, inhabitants of Valashmai include carnivorous plants, hungry dinosaurs, and enormous vermin. Hardy tribes of lizardfolk, grippli, and catfolk also make their homes within the Valashmai Jungle. Most unusually, the jungle is home to tribes of xill who normally are only encountered ravaging the Ethereal Plane.[5]
