The area of land to the West of the Border River is inhabited by tribes, mostly human, but also include elves, halflings and half-orcs. The land varies in type between grassland, swamp and some wooded areas. Tor Par to the West of the Border River reprents the limit of the tibal influence of the Sparshad land, although it appears to know no Western boundary.
To the North of Sparshad lies Avernii and although nomadic tribes have been known to move relatively close, most do not settle for long under the gaze of the southern redoubtes.
During the War of Unification, Sparshad was the site of many battles during both the advance and subsequent retreat of the Armies of Man.
