Coyoacan Peninsula

by hughpierre


A grassy peninsula, contrasting sharply with hilly Colhuacan across the mere, that is uniquely fertile among the Land of Exiles.   Despite being geographically linked to the people of Salt Side, Coyo's inhabitants prefer to separate themselves from their problems. A policy that is greatly helped by the Hungry Plains from where Coyoacan connects to its western end. It is a stretch of unstable land formed from the repeated and sustained floods over the centuries that can suck in any person walking across it surface.

Fauna & Flora

Birds: Sandhill crane, wood ducks, blue-winged teals, mallards, coots, pied-billed grebes, and marsh wrens frequently nest, roost and hunt in the surrounding habitats.   Wool grass: Also called cottongrass; these are short root plants covered in reddish, brownish, or black scales with six long bristles on each flower, making the plant look woolly.   Lake Otters: A recovering population of otters, due the barrage of lightning during the battle, is put under a conservation directive.   Beavers: Considered a nuisance in the daily life of residences, they are nonetheless vital in reconstructing the ecosystem of the Meadow Mere

Natural Resources

Rain Runoff: In these lower lying lands, the rain and storm waters from the Northern Range flow into the Teal Shallows to flood across the land into Lake Coco.

The peninsula is home to three dispersedly populated calpōlli: Hutixachtecatl, Itztpallapan and Tizapan.   Hutixachtecatl acts as the campan capital, and as such, has the greatest concentration of people. Both the Grass Dike and the Stone Dike are anchored onto their shores, which together form an alternative trade route across the length of Lake Coco and Lake Lightning.   Itztpallapan and Tizapan are dedicated to farming the peninsular and fishing on either side of the lakes that border it. Every rainy season, storm runoff flows into the nearby lakes which regularly burst their banks to cross onto the narrow plain. Since the ground is but a narrow strip of land, the waters would never flood the peninsula as it would surge overland and into Coco. As a result, the terrain became so heavily worn that the soil was slowly carried away which etched shallow streams that would last for a few days at a time and evaporate completely when the dry season returns.
