Bramala Icelands

Saleh'Alire » Ecology Tolara Di'kae Milona

The name "Bramala Icelands" is slightly misleading; located in northeastern Tolara, in the kingdom of Di'kae Milona, the Bramala Icelands actually consist of two major Islands and a string of smaller Icebergs.   The largest of the two Islands, Ate'theia, is actually only about 25% Glaciers. The rest is a cold, arid arctic tundra consisting mostly of gravel, and covered in boulders and rocks both small and large- each ranging in color from a deep almost black grey, to nearly white. The smaller of the two Islands, Yamyr, is the only one that's truly almost entirely covered in ice. During the rainy season, however, the ice from both Islands melts significantly, flooding the bordering Onmeic Coast and running down river into the Zunabar Floodplains.   While this flooding is absolutely devastating, those who live in the nieghboring regions (but especially in the Zunabar Floodplains) has learned to harness these yearly floods in order to produce water-loving grains such as Rice. As a result, these crops make up the bulk of Di'kae Milona consumable crops produced by the country.   Because of the extreme cold, little vegetation exists in the actual Icelands, however. What little does survive is extremely cold and drought hardy, and consists predominantly of woody shrubs, limited wildflowers, and various mosses and lichens that cover almost every conceivable surface. This limited vegetation, however, is vibrantly colored- a natural adaptation to attract what little cold loving insects exist; the grey rocks and gravel are deeply contrasted by hues of bright reds, blues, purples, yellows, and other colors in various shades, lending to a rich landscape despite its plainness.

Author's Notes

▼ Please Read Before You Comment ▼
I absolutely love getting feedback on my setting and its worldbuilding. I love it even more when people poke and prod at it, and ask questions about the things I've built within it. I want both. I actively encourage both. And it makes me incredibly giddy whenever I get either. However, there's a time and a place for critique in particular- mostly when I've actually asked for it (which usually happens in World Anvil's discord server). And when I do ask for critique, there are two major things I politely request that you do not include in your commentary:   ➤ The first is any sort of critique on the way I've chosen to organize or format something; Saleh'Alire is not a narrative world written for reader enjoyment... It's is a living campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons. To that end, it's written and organized for my players and I, specifically for ease of use during gameplay- and our organization needs are sometimes very different than others'. They are especially diferent, often-times, from how things "should be organized" for reader enjoyment.   ➤ Secondly, is any critique about sentence phrasing and structure, word choice, and so on; unless you've specifically found a typo, or you know for a provable fact I've blatantly misued a word, or something is legitimately unclear explicitly because I've worded it too strangely? Then respectfully: Don't comment on it; as a native English speaker of the SAE dialect, language critique in particular will almost always be unwelcome unless it's absolutely necessary. This is especially true if English is not you first language to begin with. My native dialect is criticized enough as it is for being "wrong", even by fellow native English speakers ... I really don't want to deal with the additional linguistic elitism of "formal english" from Second-Language speakers (no offense intended).   That being said: If you want to ask questions, speculate, or just ramble? Go for it! I love talking about my setting and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have, or entertain any thoughts about it. Praise, of course, is always welcome too (even if it's just a casual "this is great", it still means a lot to authors)- and if you love it, please don't forget to actually show that love by liking it and sharing it around. Because I genuinely do enjoy watching people explore and interact with my setting, and ask questions about it, and I'd definitely love to hear from you... Just be respectful about it, yeah?
