Derios is one of the continents and is the main continent of human settlement, home to the successful Zeus. The weather is warm with gentle rain and almost no snow. The terrain varies from vast forests to the fertile plains of swamp land dominates the coastline. There is a large mountain range Solon which is rich in iron and silver gives the metals dominate the industry and the economy.
Selected control most of the continent, but some peripheral countries still maintain their independence. These nations have been known to war with each other, but never to the chosen. They fear the wrath of Zeus too much. Zeus never war on someone, keep an air of moral superiority respected by all other nations. Even without his influence, but the chosen are too many people and resources directed by their neighbors. (RPG: "First Steps: The Stargate Unexplored Worlds Roleplaying Sourcebook")
