The Islands

The Islands are a small cluster of rocky isles far out to the west in The Great Sea. They are dominated by a large central island, often referred to as ‘Haven’ though no official name has ever been nominated. They were settled as part of the ‘Great Retreat’ after the ‘Downfall’ in the Year of the Unleashed Fears (452).

The main island is over forty leagues wide by forty leagues long and supports an abundant variety of life, the majority of which has been nurtured by the arrival of the remaining Free Peoples over four hundred years ago. The island was an isolated area before their arrival, with a wide variety of plant life and simple animals, but now teems with the influx of a great many people and their crops and animals.

There are five major settlements on the main island. The largest, Deepingwald, is at the southeastern tip of a chain of mountains that stretches from the northwestern reaches of the island, to the very southeast. Situated in the centre of the mountain range is a dwarven stronghold, kel-Morndin, built out of the mines that the dwarves carved when they settled.

To the west, in a large forest, is the elven settlement of Varnelonde. To the southwest the human settlement of Capel-Treath, and to the north Port Serena.

There are many smaller settlements dotted around the country supporting the many farming communities.
