The Isles of the Sun
Geography of The Isles
In the distant seas, two archipelagos converge to form a group of islands called simply The Isles of the Sun. The central Islands are controlled by The Fallen Children of Pelor, the most populous race in The Isles. The frigid north is in the hands of the Drakes, a reptilian race with a strict honor system. In the north east is the Island of Eponwood, where the vast forests contain the most advanced, intelligent, and long-lived species in The Isles: The Epon, a race of sentient telepathic trees who are tended and revered by their seedlings, the Shay. Directly to the south of the Island of The Epon are the marsh islands called home by the Lynx, a race of sharp-eyed felines. The humans and the minor races that came with them on the settlement ships many years ago occupy the islands in the south-west, where the land is newest, and the landscape is most sharp and dangerous. In the south-east a small string of tropical islands are home to The Trodden Children of Pelor, a race of stoic monks and laborers of small stature.
The islands themselves range from small enough to hold barely a trading post up to large enough to hold an entire civilization. There are many small islands which are not even officially explored or claimed, and there are still others, like The Island of the Undead far to the east, which are purposely left out of trade and politics.
