Natural Riches

The few areas that have been throughly explored in Rosscot island show a rich environment, with lush forests, internal lakes and seemingly a delta approaching the south coast.

The People of Rosscot Island

Rosscot is part of the section of the Haan Archipelago known as the "Savage Isles", separate from the rest of the islands for the hostility of their inhabitants: Any ship spotted by the natives will be attacked, plundered and the passengers killed on sight or captured never to return.
While it is known that societarians do inhabit the Savage Isles, not much could be recorded about their identity, customs or settlements.
No permanent settlement from the natives has been identified in Rosscot Island.  

Rosscot Camp

Rosscot Nouverre
During the year 2981 E.Alz, a team of Dhalmanite explorers led by Rosscot Nouverre managed to get to the island without incident and set up camp there.
They were able to send information and supplies back and forth with the Republic of Dhalmain for a total of two years, until their communications suddenly stopped and all ships sent their way failed to come back. Eventually, a delegation was able to get close enough to find that all traces of the camp visible from the coast had dissapeared.
The fate of the camp and its settlers remains a mystery.
Most of the knowledge about the island is owed to this expedition, for which the land was named Rosscot camp in honour to the crew's leader.

Danae by Naelin
The cartographer Danae from the City of Birdland in Thaur was commissioned to draw a map of the Haan Archipelago for the second edition of The Book of the Habits and Beasts, published in the 3rd of Birthing, 3 E.Ru.   Danae took advantage of the enclyclopaedia's team of researchers to gather precise information and went himself into research expeditions to survey remote areas. His work resulted in what is considered the most accurate and widespread map of the Archipelago to this day, which details even most of the coasts of the Savage Isles.
