Districts of Meles
An overview of each region
Each district of The Isles of Meles is governed by it's own local council that communes with either The Council of North Meles or The Council of South Meles, depending on their geographical location. The isles are home to a colourful spectrum of settlers, with the warmer northern regions being richer in culture and arts and the south holding strong to their traditional core values.
The districts belonging to the North of Meles have rounded shields, but the districts of the South still hold on to their older, pointed design.
Peak is home to the largest formation in the isles, The Bucket is believed to be an ancient volcano from eras gone by, this gargantuan caldera is home to exotic wildlife, rich minerals and breath-taking views.
The volcanic islands of Birne are well known for Boomcrag, which now lies dormant after the huge eruption that marked the beginning of The Second Age, plunging Meles into a volcanic winter that lasted four years.
Talan is the capital district of North Meles and is home to the ancient city of Capstone. The region has many sights to see: from the crumbling old Talan Castle, to new technologies in the port of Jontal.
Tucked away in Helston lies the small village of Crole, a quaint little settlement hidden away and protected from the battering waves of the Leucan ocean by the broken islands and coastline.
The people of Farstad are known for their sturdiness and stubbornness, but these qualities have lead to their survival in this cold region. They are well known for breeding sturdy livestock.
Anyone living in Kolar is probably doing so out of desparation. Small camps are dotted about the region, but the Council of Kolar has little knowledge of these dwellers and even less control over them.
Henj is well known for the large species of Henj Hawk that hunts here, capable of diving for fish, scavenging remains, or even swooping down on animals of equal size to itself.
Satlan's population of wildlife greatly outweighs the people living here. Ice Bears roam the southern shores hunting Pelamic Tusk Seals. Snow foxes pounce on blubber-rats, and Henj Hawks dive to hunt fish or attack smaller birds.
Some say the people of Stowe have an easier way of life without the stress of city living, but they have plenty of their own struggles keeping the islanders fed and happy whilst working lots of physical labour.
The islanders of Wolkef have limited contact with the mainland of Meles but often trade in fish, furs and domesticated wolves, which make excellent hunting companions and protect the small fishing villages from invaders.
The people of Karthe do not care for items that make them appear wealthier than they are, and they have little respect for visitors from other districts who try to lie with their appearances.
Drisley district is known as "The cloud covered isles" due to the amount of rainfall the islands are subject to every season. Even if it's not precipitating, it seems as if there's never any clear sky.
Starlow , a mountainous region, has been near abandoned since the raiders from Lepus ransacked the region nearly 60 years ago.
Aldsund is well known for it's excellent blacksmiths. They produce a lot of goods made from Mackerel Steel which are used by the majority of fisherfolk in Meles for their daily chores.
Forley is home to the capital of the south, the city of Caldgate. The journey to the north capital, the city of Capstone, is long and challenging, so negotiation trips are better made by sea.
