Geographic Summary

This page lists a brief description of some of the geographical areas of Nentsun.

  • Banjiwood: This large forest dominates the western side of the southern part of Nentsun. The forest is extremely thick, and most trade goes around it to the more civilized eastern area of the southern part of the Kingdom. There are several nomadic groups that live in Banjiwood, though they do so without any official (or known) settlements.
  • Blackwatch Island: Historically this island has watched over Glacier Bay. Towers on the western side of the island can detect anyone coming through the Narwhal Straits, and ships on the eastern side of the island can be waiting to intercept it. This island has played different roles depending on who is ruling Nentsun. Now it has fallen out of the King’s control and is often used as a launching point for pirate attacks.
  • Fields of Jin-Mar: This is the most fertile area of Nenstun. This area is named for both the fact that it was a battlefield during the Dusk War with Thonia, where Nentsun made its incursion to the south, as well as for the fields of crops that are there now.
  • Frostbite Forest: This forest is in the northern part of Nentsun, and is constantly covered with snow. Dangerous creatures roam this forest, which stretches between the Tsunan River and the Qinsu River. The Temple of the Owls is in this forest, near Whalebone Bay.
  • Glacier Bay: This large bay is at the interior of Nentsun, and even borders into Thonia. The bay doesn’t see much sea travel due to the difficulty in reaching it, but is has plenty of fish for those cities that border it.
  • Icetooth Islands: These islands are far to the north and have never been documented. Their location has been noted from exploration ships that sailed the northern waters, but they were never reached.
  • Northern Ridgeback Mountains: This mountain range stretches across the entire continent. Nentsun is home to the northernmost of these mountains, where they are rough and rugged. it isn’t just the tops that are capped with ice. The Ridgeback Mountains extend into the Talons of the Roc, where the mountains stick up out of the sea.
  • Talons of the Roc: The entire northern region of Nentsun is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. This land has broken away into a series of mountainous islands. Navigation through this area is considered impossible, due to extreme waves and rocky reefs. It is named for the creatures that build their nests atop the highest mountains here. The Temple of the Eagle sits among the northernmost mountains of the Ridgeback range.
  • The Fist of Ne-Gok-Sa: This is the peninsula that extends out to the far northwest of Nentsun. It is named for the first (and only) great King of Nentsun. This is an extremely cold and uninhabitable place.
  • The Narwhal Straits: Named for the creatures that commonly swim through these waters, the narwhal straits are one of the longest in the world. They are relatively safe to sail if you stay near the middle, but they end with a dangerous trip around Blackwatch Island.
  • The Ruins of La-Sai: Once the home to King Quonshu when he conquered Nentsun, the area was completely destroyed by Thonia during the Dusk War. The region is difficult to reach, and is thought to be haunted.
  • Whalebone Bay: This bay is frozen over at its northern entrance almost year round. The southern part of the bay acts more like a lake, than an area with access to the sea. It is named for the hundreds of whales who find their way into the bay, only to be unable to escape back into the sea after the northern part freezes over.
  • Windswept Tundra: The area along the northernmost coast of Nentsun, this area is permanently covered in snow and is nearly uninhabitable. There is a temple built here, where monks are forced to endure the harsh climates to become strong.
