Illyria is a rocky island, home to a volcano that is still active.
This makes it both a slightly desolate place to live and one with
much natural beauty.
Its volcano is dotted with metal deposits, including iron and
copper, and its warm shores mean that fishing in the area is very
good. Hot springs are found around the island and its warm waters
means that life on the island can be very relaxnig. The Firegate
ritual circle is one of the most powerful in Mauritanja and was
the site of rift to a Plane of Fire in Illyria's recent past.
However, the isle is rocky around the volcano and sparse in
plant life elsewhere. The warmth of the volcano means that thick
mists often spread around the island and this makes it especially
hot during the summer. The Volcano itself has not exploded for
many years, and is carefully watched by those who live nearby.
