BRIENS; town and fortress where Jeruth and Philip D’Haverthorn held council to decide the rightful King - both Princes of the blood and most Chieftains and leaders were slain in a blood-thirsty ambush by Mikhael Errolfini and the Lieutenants of Sonnats Gil. As Errolfini was about to execute Thalmir and the last few valiant fighters, Gareth Shequi entered to recite the Eluja Namora in order to summon Dagravane. The King and the last few defenders then successfully managed to drive off the ‘despot of the Gil’.

the CARE; the Fortress town surrounding Choiristas Keep, seat of ancient power of the first council of Lords. Currently under siege from the plane shifting Redknapp military installation, cf. Choiristas Keep II.
CASTLE CORRUPTION; the fortress of Endless Tears, the seat of power of the five Weird Lords and the main base for Dark Dreams and his servants on this plane of existence. The Castle is situated in Tal-Anon in southern Eilind. Its armies are made up of the former inhabitants of this region, Parsek - Nin and Dadan Amask .... human beings warped beyond all recognition into Ra-Men and Wierdlings. Raisclari, Peter Villa and David Lord are the only Evermorians to have been inside Castle Corruption and come back alive!
CHOIRISTAS KEEP (I); just as the Lords of the Care shepherded Evermore through its leaderless years, the Choiristas performed much the same function for the inhabitants of Eilind. Their central power base was in their own province known as Central Choiristas Region. Choiristas Keep, although a massive fortress, only had the Choiristas to defend it. It was initially damaged by Evermorians in the Exile-Choiristas War and later destroyed during a parties attempts to raid the library when fire based spells ignited flames from a huge pool of naphtha the Inquizition had been building beneath the central structure.
CHOIRISTAS KEEP (II); formerly Lords Keep, renamed Choiristas Keep by Pope Epongilius. Base of the rebellion against the Regency. Formerly haunted by Dagravane’s wife. To this day no-one knows who actually built the castle and the inner keep. On the bottom-most storey there is said to sleep a solitary Black Dragon.
CHOIRISTAS LIBRARY; former library of the Choiristas of Eilind. Rumoured to have stored in excess of 100,000 volumes predating the Oblivion Wars, and thousands post dating it. It was said that the library contained the majority of stored human knowledge. Destroyed accidentally by Menelaus Bane during the vampire incident.
CLUN; a small barony south of Caerleon whose inhabitants supported Ard Skraga. After the demise of the Necromancer, Baron Clun was attacked and destroyed by agents of the Lore Lords, its inhabitants driven into hiding. Even today a great many Evermorians are afraid to mention their partly Clunnish ancestry! Some few are even inclined to side with the Gil.
CRAIGS KEEP; first line of defence that fell over 100 years ago to the ‘League of Evil’ and their master Deathtouch, cf. ‘Wondrous Things’.
Back to top
DARKHAVEN; barony based at the former location of ‘Nightmare March’ established by Friscracia (Dragonlord) and Hawley Smoot (Assassin), rapidly became a ‘Free State’ full of Thieves, Outlaws and scum. On the return of the King (cf. Briens) Smoot and Friscracia humbly begged to keep their independence on guaranteed assurance of providing a buffer against Castle Krull. Smoot abandoned ship soon after Friscracia’s suspected demise. The area has now been seized with all its former assets by the alliance of Hanuman Able and the former Prime Minister of Krull.
DRACONSMERE; bordering the Firith and Caerleon. Draconsmere is an isolated and mountainous region. Base to the Ullratha and natural habitat of the Adraldi.

DANAKIL; a desert region just north of Amatyr, central to which is a vast mountain eyrie, the home of the Erith-Gyr and higher up the Erith-Thane. It is said that the Druids of the Watch - the most ancient of Druidic orders - hides out away from all, cf. ‘The Well of the Gyr’.
DARKENDAR; vast province in the north of the continent of Eilind. Once a beautiful land. Its people, with psionic talents by their genepool, fell to a great war with each other. Formerly ruled by nearly a hundred ruling houses, only nine survived the psionic catastrophe that turned the land to a desert nearly 25 centuries past. Out of the ashes came the priests of Aktarn who proclaimed the decimation of the land as a punishment from their God. Over the centuries the Priesthood gained more and more power and eventually the Inquisition of Darkendar was formed to police both Priesthood and people. Only the Choiristas contained, through subterfuge, the empire-building dreams of the Inquisition and the House Lords, until the Evermorian Exiles of the first Regency war destroyed their powerbase and enabled the Inquisition to rampage across their own continent and later Evermore itself.
DUSK ISLAND; base of the Majistar, Rune Duke Ombarg-Duran-Dusk, more than that is not widely known.
DARROW DELF; main mountain Dwarf citadel in the west of Haven.

FREE STATES; five small cities and large towns who capitulated to besieging forces of Sonnats Gil. Occupation forces then bled the population dry and instilled a citizens' watch, implemented by brain-washed school children.

FROZEN NORTH; a reference to an area in the north of Eilind that is said to lead through stepping-stone islands of Ice to a huge and mysterious northerly continent.

Back to top
GARDA; standing between Valsinglas and the rest of Evermore, Garda is probably one of the most war-torn regions of the Kingdom. Its people are probably some of the fiercest and most stoic of all of Avmar's people. For a long time they ran a secret war with Central Evermore maintaining their right to separate kingdom status. Dagravane finally tamed the G.L.F. with a promise of separate principality status. At present Garda is occupied by Sonnats Gil after their crushing defeat of alliance forces at Landwell and later driving back the alliance army of re-conquest at the ‘Battle of Garda’, cf. Landwell, GLF, Garda Dragoons, Battle of Garda.

GREAT MACHINE; an ancient weapon (?) situated on the Isle of Bardslea just west of Eilind. It is said to have been designed to boost normal humanity's psionic potential for the final encounter with the Daka-Shea during the Oblivion Wars. Near to its completion, the stories say a Black Dwarf named Gimgil forced the Machine to give him the power to be immune to the Enemy's touch - he was then gifted the Ring of Tin.
the NINE GATES OF THE HEARTWOOD; as you journey deeper into the Heartwood at the centre of Oakenwood, you pas through nine Gates. Each one marks a change in season and an earlier historical period of recollection. Born of the Erith-Thane is said to have entered the Heartwood at the time his people left Evermore with those who remained. At the centre, beyond the Ninth Gate, time is said to pass at a massive rate (?!?).

HROTHGAR GAP; location of the independent Malimorh and the location of the Temple of Dark Earth, sacked by Ullratha 3rd Commando and their allies circa 5840.
Back to top
INQUISITION ISLAND; actually called 'New Midigan' by its inhabitants, but generally referred to as Inquisition Island by contemptuous Evermorians. The island was awarded to Lord Damien D'Asturiens, Lord Denagor Bayle D'Asturiens and Sir Vaydakor for their people in exile. Later those worthies fought a battle with forces of Suzonna Hilary Ben Storm and Wrencourt Alton Ardais who drove off Damien and Darkendari loyal to Evermore. Lord D'Asturiens, Master of House Ash Leah, was later trapped and killed by Wrencourt in the 'Honour Debt' incident (5856).
INTERCONTINENTAL GATE; discovered by accident on the outskirts of the 'Valley of Forgotten Dreams' by Seekum of the Tuatha de Dannan in the time of Robin McCraw's chieftancy (circa 5800).

KLEET; another neighbour of Darkendar (roughly 14th/15th century Western European base). Kleetians are excessively lawful and honorable, once serving a King who was executed by a Darkendari invasion force circa 5852. His daughter, Princess Tallia, now rules the Kleetian people in exile, cf. Knights of Chevalric Reknown.
KRAS KOL; one of the five Drowh citadels in Sunswallow, thought to be the Silver Fox Citadel.
KRULL KEEP; 'Krull the Mighty', one-time throne of Lord Blacklamb, said to be the strongest castle in Avmar. Prophecy says it is undefeatable by force of arms. Seized later by Blacklamb's servant, Growley Sackville-Baggins, who joined the Regency in their war with the Exiles, circa 5808-5814. Finally, Growley was defeated. It was then thought that the place sat absent of leadership, small political parties by the dozen entering into an arena that existed for nearly 20 years until Jeruth of the House of Haverthorn seized power. Jeruth's final defeat saw Krull fall into the hands of Jeruth's lieutenant, known simply as 'The Prime Minister'. Cotic Raisclari later took control, finally leaving the castle in ruins for the Prime Minister to fall prey to Lord Deathtouch of the League of Evil. Deathtouch is now Master of Krull and its legions. Cf. Prime Minister, Krull/Gil Wars, Hanuman Able, Growley Sackville-Baggins, the One.

SONNATS GIL; given to Errolfini by King Kygor when that Rune Priest, still not possessed, was appointed Duke of Valsinglas (circa 5796). Once there, Errolfini found the Darkside Ritual, which he enacted on the peasant children of Valsinglas (5798). Has since that point been the centre of enemy servant activities, save in 5808 when Tomas Ennear, after a three-year bloodthirsty war, entered Sonnats Gil.
