Other Information
Dern is a realm that currently does not exist on the map, whose gateway is located south of Wynn at the end of the Silent Expanse.

The Realm of Dern is a mysterious place that has yet to be released. It is the realm of Darkness, opposite to the The Realm of Light. Similar to the Realm of Light, Dern also has a Beast, a physical manifestation of the realm[1], although the Dern Beast has not been named yet. Dern has been stated to be a place of darkness and is called a "far off dark land" by lead lore developer, Grian. He also has stated that in the lore of the game it is not considered a province, but should still be treated as one.

Dern takes major motifs from the works of HP Lovecraft, and it can be assumed that The Realm of Darkness will follow a similar path to the Silent Expanse and be exceedingly Eldritch in nature.

Though the Olm fled to Dernel Jungle, proceeding to go mad believing that The Eye continued to watch them, it is unknown if Dernel Jungle's nomenclature has any relevance to Dern.

In the 1.19 update, the Silent Expanse, also known as the Road to Dern, was released and houses the Portal to Dern, although there is no way for the player to enter it as of now.
