Denduron is a territory mostly covered with frozen undiscovered continents, but near the equator are three inhabited continents. One of these continents are where two battling tribes live: The Milago and the Bedoowan. The Milago are forced to hunt for glaze, a kind of valuable mineral, and give it to the Bedoowan. The Traveler from Denduron is a Bedoowan knight called Alder. His acolyte is a Milago woman who lost her husband to the Bedoowan in the first book. Bobby and his Uncle Press visit Denduron in the first book, The Merchant of Death. The quigs of this territory are described by Bobby as being reminiscent of prehistoric bears, with a single yellow spike on their heads.
