The Lost Land is the main setting of the original Turok series published by Acclaim Entertainment; it is regarded as a middle ground or sewer of the Multiverse, where all manner of life from every corner of space and time can be sucked into at random by way of portals or tears in space-time.
It is inhabited by many species, including the Dinosoids, Fireborn, dinosaurs, Blind Ones, and humans. The Lost Land occasionally creates portals between itself and other worlds; this is how most of its inhabitants wind up there.
The Lost Land usually appears as a lush jungle or tropical rainforest. However, it contains a multitude of different environments including mountain ranges, underground caves, plains, deserts, and highlands.
It is home to a plethora of creatures ranging from average, yet primitive, humans to all sorts of monsters as well as everything in between.
One of the most successful populations of creatures in the Lost Land are different varieties of dinosaurs. Few species in the Lost Land have not been genetically or technologically enhanced to increase their ferocity and killing ability over the millennia.
At some point in time, a being called the Primagen became bored with life and studying the stars, so he decided to leave his own galaxy to find the secrets of the universe. He restructured his Lightship (against the advice of his peers) and took off. Many months into the expedition, the ship's hull, which was not designed for this type of travel, was beginning to wear out. A small hull breach near the core of the ship released dangerous amounts of energy into space, where it reacted with miscellaneous particles and propelled the Lightship into a strange vortex.
The Lightship skipped in and out of time, collecting anti-matter as it went. When the ship finally returned to reality, its new composition turned it into a magnet for all nearby matter. After millennia, the ship resembled a planet, separated from the space around it by a mass of energy which came to be known as the Netherscape. This planet, now called the Lost Land, is very similar to Earth.
The Lost Land uses a steady power supply from the damaged Primagen's Lightship, which is then diverted using a series of Energy Totems. These towers are at least 50 feet tall and are scattered throughout the Lost Land. They are the scattered pieces of the "key" that would unlock the Primagen's tomb in his Lightship.
