  • Far Kolvir

    Far Kolvir is the most distant and isolated land in the former [[Ilmand Empire]]. It was the last discovered, as it lies some 300 nautical miles from the nearest part of [[Usteidunn]]. By all rights it should have fallen apart when the [[Curse on the …

  • Mariaul

    The [[Stony Coast]] is nearly uninhabited, and those few villages it has are small and devoted to fishing. One major exception to this rule, though, is Mariaul. When the [[Ilmand Empire]]’s ships first stumbled upon [[Sarakri]], it was a shock to the …

  • Palani

    In a world where a great deal has been lost, many point to Palani as a sign that the worst darkness has passed. Much of [[Usteidunn]] is too dangerous to settle, and until a few decades ago, Palani was part of that. Then [[King Golbarod of Palani|Golbarod …

  • Rognisanjan

  • World Below
