European Dead Zone
The European Dead Zone, also known as the EDZ or simply Dead Zone, is a region on Earth. It is filled with ruins dating back to the Golden Age and earlier, but one of its most notable landmarks is a massive shard of the Traveler that was sundered during the Collapse. The Fallen House of Devils was known to have a presence in the EDZ before their disappearance due to the SIVA Crisis. By the time of the Red War, the Fallen had returned to the area under a new banner and their presence, combined with that of a Cabal occupational force and Taken remnants, has made the EDZ into a warzone.
The Red Legion began occupying the Zone after The Last City was invaded. Guardians will travel to the European Dead Zone in order to reclaim their powers from the Traveler's shard found there. The region contains many Lost Sectors and Adventures to partake in, as well as twenty-one Region Chests to find. The Fallen House of Dusk are also active in the Dead Zone, as well as the Taken, remnants from the Taken War, continue to linger within the region.
Some time ago, possibly during the Collapse, an unknown event occurred that left a massive shard of the Traveler stuck in the EDZ. This shard caused the region to become completely deserted, save for some human explorers.
Following the invasion of The Last City, Dominus Ghaul deploys his forces to mobilize within the region, causing the region to become a major warzone between the Taken, Fallen and Cabal. Guardian forces have also fled to the Dead Zone in order to hide and recover from the invasion, establishing The Farm as a new base of operations.
