Gobakhan is a desert plane with twin suns, where civilization is surrounded by two massive sandstorms known as the Eastern Cloud and the Western Cloud. These contain deadly amounts of diamond micrograins. The people of Gobakhan depend on the monks of the Order of the Shield Mage to protect them against the storms. The planeswalker Teyo Verada used to be an acolyte of that order.
Much of the landscape of Gobakhan consists of sand dunes. One of the bigger settlements on Gobakhan is the town of Oasis, which has a small park in the town square. The Gobakhans have domesticated carry-beasts that they use for transports. Other known inhabitants include sand-devils, minotaurs, djinni and dwarves.
