Hi, there
I know I'm new here, but there is this question that have been bothering me since I got interest in fictional cartography

Well, in many RPGS (most of them, online) The desert is locatad in the extreme south of the game.
I mean... WHY?! why the south? it's always the south
the only exceptions that I know are FInal Fantasy (wich the desert is loocated int he north) and Final Fantasy X (wich the desert is located in the west (and i think that Valkyrie Profile 2's desert is located in the center, though, I'm not sure)

I mean... those deserts randomly put in the south of a continent doesn't make much sense, does it?

but I can't say much, my fisrt idea for a continent had it's desert in the south XD

anyways, discuss
