Nepharus Mons is a towering peak in the mountains of The Land. Encircling this mountain are the homelands of the Amazon tribes.

Despite centuries of contact with the amazonian tribes, many rumors continue to circulate about their supposedly "backwards" society. In fact, they are not made up only of women, for obvious reasons. Nor do they keep only a few male breeders kept in each tribe (a story popular with younger male Atlanteans). That said, however, the dominance of women among the tribes is connected with fertility rights, which become far more important in small populations such as theirs. The exact details, however, bear further investigation.

The several amazon tribes allied with the rebels lend some weight to the rumor that the secret of black powder was discovered in their lands.
