List of Places:
The Buskan Isles = The Buskan Isles were uninhabited until a group of Humans arrived. The Islands are warm and temperate but can sometimes be subject to sudden violent storms. They are relatively flat and pristine with all manner of flowers and grasses, but unfortunately below there is little soil which discourages the use of most crops. The Buskan were forced to resort to fishing and merchanting, which soon gave rise to many pirating factions situated throughout the islands. Although these corsairs damage trade they are generally accepted and tolerated by the populace, though should any stray, too far south into Haram waters they will receive a very "Warm" welcome. The Buskan Isles were for a time a province of the Empire until the Buskan War of independence, which saw the liberation of the Islands. Now both nations retain a steady alliance.
Arkenea (The Invincible City) = The Invincible City is the best protected of Magas Firale's three cities. Its residents specialize in magical weaponry, and create the best available. Their greatest achievements are the golems, humanoid, ball-jointed fighting machines. The city is called "invincible" because a great wall surrounds it, and defended by magical weapon emplacements.
Larskan = Port City on the Buskan Isles
the Broken Barrel Inn = The Inn that Ilan Rilynn' Aith owns that has passed down in his family for generations.
