The Wannschok, or "Endless Wastes", is a desert in the eastern part of Kintan that saw the emergence of the Red Nikto. This arid region was once covered in lush forests, but now, only scorched wood and some enduring shrubs can be found among the many caves and lava rivers.
The Gluss'elta archipelago in the equatorial ocean of Kintan (located east of the Wannshock) is home of the Pale Nikto. The inlets in this non-salty ocean have a tropical climate and plains with lush and blossoming vegetation.
At the other side of the Gluss'elta Sea, the Green Nikto evolved on the extensive prairies. The climate is gentler, and water is abundant since the grasslands are crossed by rivers that come down from the northern glaciers, through the mountainous region, and pour their water into the ocean. The Mountain Nikto evolved among these northern peaks, where air is thin and temperature descends dramatically during night.
The Southern Nikto evolved at the southern pole of Kintan, which is covered in desolate glaciers. The vast southern mountain range and the Canyon of Despair (a desert valley south of the grasslands) proved formidable obstacles for the Southern Nikto and, being unable to migrate to warmer climates, they were forced to adapt to the harsh conditions and the barren terrain.
