If an area is neither resource rich nor a crossroad, there will be very few if any settlements. That area happens to be barren and out of the way.
    I always just kind of mentally assume, when looking at a map (especially one without clear climate boundaries marked), that an area sparse of settlement is in fact a desert or barren region.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    I really like the look of those mountains. That's one thing I need to play around with some more on my own maps; my mountains are kind of... generic.
