North Isle is the second largest island of the Mauritanja Archipelago,
slightly smaller in area than its cousin South Isle. It is a sparse
island, compared to its richly forested cousin, but not one without
many important points.
The Alzheimer Mountains in its north form a rocky terrain, difficult
to live in but rich with minerals, such as Copper, Silver and
Iron. The ritual circle there is not heavily used, but was the
site of a battle during the campaign on North Isle when it was
freed from invading Skathen. Most of the Mountain range is unexplored,
due to the strange confusion effect that affects any who enters
Its East coast also saw battle during the North Isle invasion
by the Vipers, but their legacy is the city of Freetown, that
now sits at the end of the great bay. The coast itself was ravaged
both by the Vipers and by the Blood seas that surrounded Boar
isle during Monotone's reign on the island.
The South East corner survived well however, being protected
by nearby Shipyard isle and on the mouth of the Solent, the saltwater
river that runs between North Isle and South Isle. It also contains
the Farsight Ritual Circle that was a staging post for the Unicorn
armies at that point.
The southern coast of North Isle faces onto the Solent and has
had the easiest time of most of the isle for many years. Well
protected and sheltered it has held small villages along its banks
for many hundreds of years. At the other end of the Solent lies
the Colossus' Steps, where the great statue that defended Mauritanja
now lies in ruins, bridging the gap between North Isle and South
Quetal on the West coast of North Isle is the greenest and most
fertile area of the island. Held by the Kith Rhae it holds some
of the finest vineyards of the Heartlands and its forests are
home to many rare herbs and plants. The city of Tal lies at its
heart, and is closely guarded by its inhabitants.
In the centre of North Isle lies an enigma; the Savannah. A
vast area whose rolling grasslands seem to hide much. Large amounts
of it are unexplored and with the recent difficulties look like
an opportunity waiting to happen.
