Yokatlān Crater, meaning "Place of Richness" is a major geographical feature in the continent of Udai. It is said to be where the meteor sent by the Goddess
of Death, Morrigan, crashed, carrying on it the plague that became the catalyst for Korvian
Abilities. Thus, it is said to be the home of their wealth and power.
The Indented Lake
The crater is 6 miles in diameter either way, with mountain ranges outlining its circumference. Dotting these mountain ranges on one side is a forest. Its trees, while not the tallest even in Udai, are said to tower over the average trees in Udai forests.
The crater reaches depths of 5 miles, but its furthest depths are not visible from the surface, for it is filled largely with a lake. This indented lake houses some few fish species, including crayfish, rainbow trout, and salmon. It is said that there are some plesiosaurus packs found within the lake as well.
The Dancord Islet
At the center of the lake is an island, called the Dancord Islet, isolated from the rest of the world. Here, some animals, particularly dinosaurs, can be found that live nowhere else. Orcs
live here together, disconnected from the rest of the world.
It snows on this island more months out of the year. Some say it is because of the mountain peak at the center of the island, though this does not add up. It creates abnormally cold weather, which can only be escaped by entering the warm water of the Yokatlān Crater.
The snow is considered by others to be magical, perhaps an enchantment or a curse on the island. The truth is that the Dancord Islet is the Meteor that crashed into Totania and spread the Korvian Plague. Carrying the magical properties from the Goddess Morrigan herself, the Dancord Islet serves as a home to people and a home of praise for many Korvians. Orcs, largely, fear its power after what it did for the Korvian people.
