The Weeping Desert was located in the Haunted Lands of interior Zakhara. It was a sandy expanse running from limestone hills at the base of the Furrowed Mountains to massive barchan dunes separating it from the Burning Lands.
By 1367 DR,[note 1] the Weeping Desert earned its name from the prevalence of undead spirits, such as ghosts, ghost horses, and the undead giants known as rom. A large set of ruins was believed to be the source of the keening sounds that kept travelers awake at night. A large clan of rom was hidden beneath this ruin at the magical underground spring known as the Well of Despair.
