The Gurek Desert is a region of The Interior of the Greater Continent in the southern-most region, where the Erum Range meets the Barrier Range. The area was once lush but was turned into a radioactive desert. The Drack, who lived on the far side of the mountains from Hiak, were attempting to wipe out the Marcon Alliance. However, lacking information for target selection, they simply showered the area with bombs.
The Gurek region was changed forever, and slowly formed a desert. Massive impact craters are still visible, though the region has not been explored on the ground. Is is believed that at the time of the attack, the area was very sparsely populated, with Marcon cities mostly being much further north.
