A complete map of the island.

Summary

A few weeks travel from the western coast of Bormar, this strange tri-colour island has had little to no interest shown in it over the long years. However, due to recent discoveries and hints that the fabled All-Gem now rests here, Lord Voman Stoutheart has sponsored a new Outpost to be made, in order to plumb the wealth and riches of this land and to unearth information on the All-Gem's whereabouts.

The outcome of this expedition can be found in The Fate Of Zietal Mar.

Geography

The island is essentially split into two main landmasses, connected by a narrow strip of land.

The northern portion, known as the Red Hills, is comprised of red rock, flammable materials and bare stone. The area is very mountainous and has little to no foliage or life there, except the populations of Grol that have managed to cling onto this harsh landscape.

The southern portion, known as the Green Forest, comprises of rich, fertile forests and green meadows. The majority of the region is hilly, with a large mountainous area to the south-east. Trees and grasses provide ample food and protection for most native wildlife, including Mar Goats and Trolls.

A swampy region dominates a portion of the western side of the island, with boggy marshes, tall mangrove trees and giant fungi spreading itself over the area.

To the south, the striking Blue Shores - broken-up islands comprised of various minerals and materials all ranging in shades and hues of blue and aqua.
