In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, the continent of Hepmonaland is Southeast of the Flanaess. Hepmonaland was created as a in-game region where the Aztec culture is dominant (the Olman) and dinosaurs are very common monsters.

Hepmonaland is the Suel and Oeridian name for the land, named after Eri-hep-Mona, the first Suloise explorer to arrive there. The Olman call it Xamolatatl, "Home of the People," and the Touv call it Melavi, "The Bountiful Place." It is the smallest of Oerth's continents.

Geography[edit]

Hepmonaland is bounded by the Densac Gulf and Vogan Sea to the west, the Solnor Ocean and Sea of Sharks to the east, the Tilva Strait to the northwest, and the Oljatt Sea to the northeast. A spur of islands splits off from the continent's western shore, curving north to form Xuxchan Bay. A large island, the Isle of Singing Stones, lies to the southwest.

An unhealthy tropical marsh, the Pelisso Swamps, sits along much of the continent's northeastern coast.

Climate[edit]

Hepmonaland is a tropical landmass, suffering frequent storms.
