Maps: Keron Island

December 9th, 2010

This fine map could be used in any setting, but it represents Keron Island off the eastern coast of Hârn, in the Sea of Ivae. The ruin named Nehurva represents an abandoned fishing village belonging to the ancient Pagaelin when they were fisher-folk on the east coast, prior to the Migration Wars. When, where, and how Nehurva was destroyed is left to your imagination. The iron mine was used by the Orbaalese during their occupation of the island in 704TR, when they constructed Balhafen, and was abandoned in 707 when Balhafen was destroyed by a freak storm. Lake Yvan is a tidal lake.
