Azrik is a southwestern region of the continent Karterus. It is sited west of Gulimbor, north of Hive and south of Ma'Ohari. Azrik's western flank is the Salzârrâk Sea; better known to Azrik natives as the Minotaur Inlet.
In the Dawn Era, the central part of this region was split open by an enormous volcano. Named Hermir Azrik, the caldera rim of this volcano is noticeable in the landscape. Ocean waters having swallowed part of it, creating the bay of Thrawkrall. Azrik's lowlands have a rich volcanic soil that is some of the best on the continent.
In 785, minotaurs began arriving in this region. These minotaurs, former slaves of the First Khazarkar Empire, went on to form two centers of influence, the peaceful ones went north to Ilfongrak and the warmongering ones went south where they became the Ba'lith Empire.
The Underdark region beneath Azrik is called Maleddanar. There is extensive trade between the surface and this Underdark region.
The cities of Azrik are sometimes referred to as the Cities of the Caldera.
