  • Eskjö

    Only half of Eskjö’s landmass is flat enough to cultivate. On that half, small villages still cultivate their land the way their ancestors have done since time began. Eskjö has a small population, has no real industry, and except for a few Vendel vacation …

  • Grimstadd

    Grimstadd is a forlorn place, by far the coldest of the Vesten islands. Three–quarters of the island’s coast is locked in by ice during the long winters, and dangerous icebergs surround the island the rest of the year. Vendel rarely sends ships into …

  • Klørbulg

    Klørbulg is a Vesten stronghold with a rich history and an uncertain future. According to legend, this island was once almost as large as Oddiswulf. But it served as the site of many of the greatest battles of the Worst Days, and when Villskap killed …

  • Oddis

    The island formerly known as Oddiswulf is the largest in the frigid northern waters. It may also be the most important and influential piece of land in the world. The stony spirit of the island is the indomitable Hjalmarr Mountains, once believed to be …

    Örnsköldsvik is a small rocky island jutting from the sea just south of Oddiswulf. Soil is scarce here; the island is practically a single piece of rock, and the sea winds that whip across its face ensure that no loose deposits stay long. The island has …

  • Soroya

    Soroya’s population is almost entirely Vesten, scattered into tiny farming communities throughout the island. The winter ice spreads across the northern coast, but the rest of the island enjoys plentiful fishing, and whalers often use Soroya as a port–of– …

  • Thorshofn

    The people of Thorshofn are highly insular and tight–knit. They do not welcome outsiders. However, they define “outsiders” as anyone who does not come from Thorshofn — even other Vestenmannavnjar are not welcome. Thorshofn has no real port facilities, …

  • Viddenheim

    The island of Viddenheim is the second–largest in the chain of nine, and so similar to Oddiswulf that the Vesten sometimes refer to them as “the twins.” Viddheim has a low and fertile plain along its coasts, the best farmland the Vestenmannavnjar can …

  • The Ninth Island

    The ancient Vestenmannavnjar claimed nine islands as their own. There are only eight islands in the Vendel nation. Despite the best efforts of the Vendel League (and a 100,000 guilder reward), one rock jutting out of the sea eludes their control. The …
