The Anoth Delta is a largely uncharted wilderness in northeastern Hârn, where the Anoth River empties into the Sea of Ivae. The terrain is primarily marshland, broken by areas of open water and more than a score of islands. The area is vast, covering about 750 square leagues.
Although the Anoth Delta is claimed by the Kingdom of Orbaal, it is also home to the Anoa tribal nation and is within the ranges of the nomadic Diaffa and Wurokin gargun. In addition to the Jarin and Ivinian inhabitants of the Orbaalese settlements, the delta is home to outlaws and pirates who find refuge in its marshy waterways.
The area is known for its abundance of wildlife, insects, and plants, some species of which are found only in the delta. The Anoth Delta is a dangerous place, with many natural hazards that can hamper or harm those unfamiliar with this type of environment.
This article describes the history, geography, flora and fauna, and natural hazards of the Anoth Delta. A map of the entire delta is included, as are descriptions of the area’s three regions and their inhabitants.
The Anoth Delta is the setting for an adventure, Bognor’s Folly, which is also available from this website.
