Country of Auldosd

Just south of the Elder Isle lies the country of Auldsod. The last of the wilds. Sweetly kissed by rain and painted in the verdant greens of meadows and untamed forest. Only the most intrepid souls call this place home. You won't find as many cosmopolitan cities as you would with their neighbors to the north. The Landscape consists mainly of endless green. Massive forests, winding rivers and golden meadows are interspersed with the occasional settlement or town. Fey creatures still reside here and live side by side with their mortal neighbors. Though not always harmoniously. Lack of human settlements has allowed beasts of all shapes and sizes to flourish; Along with possibly some darker elements not yet discovered. Formerly under the rule of the Elder Isle, The country declared independence over 50 years ago. Few now remember an assassination attempt on King Ostrum's life was the spark that ignited it. Each side blamed the other for the attack and a bloody war soon followed lasting nearly a decade. The hard fought independence from The Elder Isle has left the country leaderless. Without a central government, the country became a cluster of feudal city-states all abiding by their own leadership and rules. So laws and punishment vary from region to region. Some settlements have no law and order at all. Disputes are instead settled by bloody skirmishes. The two biggest cities, Mount Cashell and Ailec, lie far to the south and offer some more of the creature comforts one may be used to. But in the northern regions, you'd be hard pressed to find any settlements that large. You'd be lucky to find any settlements at all.

Geography

Miles of Forest land, many hills, mountains and plains. Very few settlements. Untamed and Wild are words that come to mind when thinking of this country.

Fauna & Flora

There are many portals to the Feywild within this country, therefore many fey creatures call this country home and inhabit it alongside beasts of all shapes and sizes one would normally find in a forest habitation.

Natural Resources

Plenty of fish and game. Along with trees and farmland. The capital city, Mount Cashell actually exports paper and vellum textiles.

I really love this map. Well done!   Have a quick note about the map names. So for "The Hopeful Harbor," "the" would usually be done away with so it would instead be "Hopeful Harbor." Hope this helps!

That does have a better ring to it! Thank you for the tip!
