Stunveldt Island

The island of Stunveldt, roughly 100 kilometers in diameter between its furthest points, is located between the coasts of Thaur, Dhalmain and Ruh.   The island is covered by a thick, humid jungle, with a small white forest in the southwest area.
Over to the west, Stunveldt has a smaller island, less than 20km across, called Eydev, used as an isolated haven for tourists full of beautiful vistas, accomodations, and cultural shows surrounded by souvenir markets.   The island's whole territory is controlled by the Stunveldti, which have their capital city, Tismasul, a little east from the center of it.  

The People of Stunveldt

The Stunveldti are a proud and distrustful nation that kept themselves shut off from the rest of the archipelago for centuries in order to protect their cultural identity from outside influence, with the sole exception of their allies, the Ruhk.   Stunveldt's demography is fragmented in a weirdly organised way: The coasts are inhabited by waterland silkies, the deepest areas of the jungle house segmented folk, and forming a sort of "barrier" in between, a circle of scalies.
Despite this segregation, Stunveldtis appreciate each type of societarian equally in their nation, but they also have a strict culture that assigns expectations to each subspecies, gender and profession.
  Stunveldt opened its borders to the rest of the archipelago during 2586 E.Alz, and their nation grew thanks to their exports of both natural resources and cultural products that the people from other islands covet due to the fame of Stunveldt as a mysterious, exotic culture.  

Natural Riches

The most famous Stunveldti product is the seed of the gods' beverage plant, known as teobrew.
This bitter seed can be processed into two distinctively different materials known as chocolate and coffee, which are processed further down into brews, sweets, butters and flavours.   Stunveldt is also the main source of cuppats, a reptile whose skin is used in the manufacturing of cuppat's dust, an expensive psychoactive drug.

The Haan Archipelago
Portrait of Danae, a holding his peace bird pen and a book containing a map
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.

I would love to explore more of Stunveldt, just to talk with all the interesting societarians that live there. :D
