The Vardor Locality, YV 235

The Northern Meridian continent is the birthplace of the gnomes, dwarves, kobolds, elves, and minotaurs, though human tribes migrated there early in the growth of civilizations. One of these tribes, the Arvada, produced Vardor, whose birth marks the year from which their calendar would come to be counted. By the years 235, Vardor is a god and the kingdom he founded he still leads through his descendant: king and high priest Vindil III. Over the centuries, the Vardor kingdom has grown large enough (mostly through voluntary union) that it now receives diplomats from the many human nations in the Southern Meridian continent. Its colony on the island of Stormguard has grown to be profitable, despite conflict with the orcs there.ContinentMapDarkened

The wilderness along the coast South of Vardor is roamed by tribes, both human and minotaur, and the wilderness East dominated by minotaur tribes. Some of this Eastern wilderness was once united under the werewolf king Margon, but now is wild with the tribes only passingly tied to his temple in the fallen capitol, Taurkiev.

In the Southeastern coast is the continent, the shrunken elven lands languish, but have had some contact with Vardor.

Across the Glass Gulf to the North, the gnomes have a peace with Vardor under which they have abandoned human slavery. They are still a seafaring race, but no longer raid human coasts as they did before the treaty. The gnomes became seafarers after closing off their deep homes and ending mining in the face of drow encroachment. East of the Gnomish lands, the mountains are wild. Where once the dwarves tamed the land, their surface entrances are closed and they have cut themselves off in response to drow attack.

Still further East and South, the kobolds claw at a past in which they were reckoned with by the powers of the continent. With many dragons slain, the power of their dragon-rider god is diminished and they now strive for recognition and power once again.
