Wonderdraft - Eastern Exandria

Fan made detailed map of Tal'dorei and Wildemount, by West Haberlein

Exandria is the name of the world on which most events of Critical Role take place.[1]  Exandria exists in the Material Plane, although it features connections to other planes of existence, such as the portals to the elemental planes guarded by the Ashari.

Many different languages were spoken across Exandria. Common was the most widely spoken among humanoids, though most races also had their own language.

Continents Edit


A fan-made map of Exandria. Several locations on Issylra, Marquet and the Shattered Teeth are not canonical.

Tal'Dorei / GwessarEdit

Main article: Gwessar.

A northern continent[2] which contains the Realm of Tal'Dorei, as well as the elven realm of Syngorn, the Dwarven realm of Kraghammer, and, far to the south, the Hobgoblin realm of Tz'arrm.


Main article: Issylra.

A continent northwest of Tal'Dorei that contains the region of Othanzia,[3] which includes Vasselheim and Pyrah.


Main article: Marquet.

A southern continent made up of approximately 30% mountainous[4] and 70% desert regions[2], there are few bastions of civilization to be found aside from Ank'Harel.

The Shattered TeethEdit

Main article: The Shattered Teeth.

It is not technically a continent, but this archipelago of 43 islands lies southeast of Tal'Dorei (beyond a fog bank called the "Fool's Curtain")[citation needed]

The UnderdarkEdit

Main article: The Underdark.

This subterranean region is isolated and distinct from the political, social, economic, and environmental regions of the surface world.


Main article: Wildemount.

Located to the northeast of Tal'Dorei, this continent is largely isolated and, outside of Draconia, has little contact and next to no trade with the outside world.[citation needed]

Bodies of Water Edit

Satellites Edit

Exandria has two moons[5][1][6], named Catha and Ruidus.[7]

  • Catha is similar in appearance to Earth's Moon, though it is closer to Exandria and appears larger in the sky.[6] It has a 33 day cycle during which it waxes and wanes.[8]
  • Ruidus appears smaller in Exandria's sky due to its further distance from the planet, and its reddish-purple, maroon-brown color contributes to a dimmer glow.[6]  Lycanthropy is relatively unaffected by this moon in comparison to the closer moon.[9] It has a very slow orbit, taking a full year (328 days) for a revolution, and is visible for about half of the year.[10]
