The Vision Plain was located north of the city of Saltoan in the eastern part of Genabackis. It was a gently rolling prairie which extended north toward the Barghast Range. A sandy trader track followed the northern edge of the River Catlin floodplain eastward to Capustan. In the spring, flood waters inundated the road, wiping out wagon ruts. The portion of the road near Saltoan saw frequent bandit attacks.
A troop of unlucky bandits chose the wagon of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach as their next target on the road across the Vision Plain. Gruntle came upon their blackened bodies two or three days later.
It was unclear whether the Vision Plain and the Catlin Plain were two names for the same geographical location or were two separate adjoining areas. Neither are marked on the published maps of Genabackis. Saltoan on the Catlin River was said to be on the Vision Plain. Dujek's Malazan army passed through the Catlin Plain somewhere between Pale and Capustan north of the Catlin River.
