|“||The Commonlands is a vast arid land, but was not always so. This land that was once lush and vibrant has been ravaged by what some scholars say was the lingering death throw of the curse of Solusek Ro that long ago destroyed the Eldarr Forest. The land is now ungracious to Freeportians and traveler alike. What little spots of hospitality that exist amidst the badlands and ruins are often contended for by beast, bandit and orc.||”|
Lore[edit | edit source]
Located on the east side of the Shattered Lands upon the continent D'Lere, the region is a battle-scarred subtropical savanna. It is embraced by titanic jagged mountains called Razorrock Ridge and scattered with clumps of trees and kopjes. Many battles have been waged on these lands and orc and human ruins are common sights amidst the beautiful and deadly land.
Once this region was a haven for the Deathfist Empire orc legions. The Deathfist Empire seemingly was driven from The Commonlands during the Battle of Defiance. As of the recent decade, the orcs have begun to make a presence in the region again. What brings them back is unknown. - (Source: Official Everquest II lore)
Geography[edit | edit source]
The Commonlands are open plains and gentle hills, with almost no barriers to travel. Each large plain is dominated by specific types of creatures. Roads and streams crisscross the region and are mostly safe from danger. They can be used by players to travel undisturbed between each major section of the zone.

The Commonlands dock is a travel hub, giving quick access to three regions within Freeport. Additionally, it gives direct access to Nektulos Forest docks, The Thundering Steppes docks, and Freeport Guild Halls.
