Geography[edit | edit source]
Corisande was one of larger islands located in Carter's Ocean, its northern most tip cut across the Safeholdian equator and ran along the southern part of the Chisholm Sea. It stretched just under 1900 miles across from Wind Hook Head in the west to the shores of the Earldom of Coris in the east and just under 800 miles across from Cape Targan in the north to the shores of the Barony of Coastwatch in the south.
The middle of the island was covered with a mountainous region known as the Barcor Mountains, crossing the Earldoms of Anvil Rock, Deep Hollow, Dark Hill, and Noryst, as well as the Baronies of Barcor, Larchros, and Granite Hill.
Leading south and east, away from the Barcor Mountains was the relatively thin mountain range known as the Dark Hill Mountains which crossed the Earldoms of Juras and Mahrak and ended at the shores of the Duchy of Manchyr.
Located near the western end of the island was a lone, noteworthy lake which covers a large portion of the Duchy of Barcair, and barely crosses the borders of the neighboring Baronies of Tairys, Kerso and Rokali. (BHD)
History[edit | edit source]
It was the seat of power for the League of Corisande until August, Year of God 893 when it finally fell to the forces of the Charisian Empire under the direct command of Emperor Cayleb, an event known as the Invasion of Corisande. (OAR, BHD)
