"The Isle of Amelor is a beautiful prison: the loveliest of cells."
- Assassin Guild Leader Illyria Corsin
Amelor is an archipelago of approximately 140,000 square miles, located mainly on the equator of the world of Reya. Other continents exist across the sea, but Amelor, surrounded by the tumultuous Volund ocean, has been cut off from the lands beyond for countless millennia. They are on their own. The climate is predominantly temperate, but varies greatly from north to south. Amelor's geographical features divide it into five principal climatic zones, called The Pinnacles of Amelor- which all of the main noble familes have claimed for their own with established city-states. The northernmost zone, Brightthorn, which houses the Capitol of Storm’s Veil, has a humid continental climate with long, cold winters and very warm to cool summers. Precipitation is not heavy, but the islands usually develop deep snowbanks in the winter. Many call the land of Amelor home. It is a land of sorcery and rebirth, cruel violence and divine dedication. There are Spirits and Elves, but it is mainly Humans that control the land and decide its fate- although there is a popular Amelorian saying, “The Tides are ever shifting.”
