So this is a first incomplete try at starting a discussion on Elsweyrs Regions. I have added a zip file that has some very early thoughts for the basic design of atleast three regions and some generall thoughts. I want to let some other people have a say too though so I am posting this now so that people can give there input. Please note that these are just ideas and nothing more.

Here's some region ideas I have. It's incomplete but will be updated with more references in time.

The northern borders of the Riverlands are lush as they are in Cyrodiil, the eastern borders of Elsweyr Nibenese-like in landscape and culture, and the western borders thick-forested like Valenwood. But the interior of Elsweyr, untouched by the borders of other provinces, is a harsh area of badlands and dry plains. The pink-tinted sands of the Ne Quin-al desert and its sparing pink plantlife are the only semblances of vivacity in these harsh lands. Khajiit tribes roam the rocky crags, canyons, and shifting sands of Anequina, settling in the remains of ancient kingdoms that have been swallowed by the desert. South of Anequina, however, the soil turns fertile, with jungles and rainforests hosting colorful flora, especially near the sugarcane groves which cluster near the Tenmar Forest. The Khajiit who live in Pelletine are agrarian, the rich nobles of Elsweyr. Ruins of ancient civilization dot the entirety of the province, where forgotten treasures are just waiting to be found.

Region Descriptions:

Anequina Regions:
Spoiler
Riverlands

The Rim

Samisil Steppes

Ne Quin-Al Desert
The Ne Quin-Al is the harsh, dry desert of Anequina. Its sands are a faint salmon-pink, a hint of the pink, alien South in these northern lands. But don’t let that fool you, as the desert is treacherous. Not only do dangers roam the wild, but in ruins of forgotten Anequinan kingdoms, buried beneath the sands, ancient enemies lurk. Vegetation is sparse, but where it exists it stands out. Green cacti with pink flowers and the similarly pink-green succulents dot the landscape, as well as other sparse pink-green flora.

Tenmar Basin
The Tenmar Basin is the main region of the Tenmar Forest, a thick green, blue and pink jungle that is filled with sugarcane groves, where moon sugar comes from. Crystallized moonlight comes from the Topal Sea to the Tenmar Basin, and everything here is touched by it, from the sparkling of the water to the strangely colored flora. Predators stalk the jungle, which is home to the khajiit of Pelletine.
