The Altgird on a map drawn by D. M. Cornish.
|Part of||Harthe Alle|
The Altgird is the continental mass of which the Half-Continent is but the southeastern portion. It in turn is part of a larger world known as the Harthe Alle. Monster Blood Tattoo primarily occurs in a small portion of the Soutlands area of the Half-Continent, but makes reference to the areas beyond in the Altgird.
Behind the scenesEdit
The cultures of all of these areas are based on real world equivalents. The Altgird is not shown to be connected to any other continents, but may be connected to Magog assuming that Cornish's map of the Harthe Alle wraps around. To the west is the Occident, Heilgoland is to the south, and to the east lies Parthia, the Brigandine States, and the Derelands.
