The Shining Plains was a portion of the Vilhon Reach, named after the visual effect of sunlight hitting the plains. The plains themselves were not held by any cohesive force, instead being composed of human-filled city-states, wemic and centaur tribes, and a powerful druidic organization called the Emerald Enclave.[3]
