Gulf of Jahras Iythria

Map of the area

Howard Island was a strategically located island, found at the eastern entrance of the Howard Passage. It was also found between Widows Point and Terrance Bay. (map)

The island was thirty-five miles long, and aside from Tern Bay, at its northern end, it did not have very good anchorages. A town also called Tern Bay was the largest settlement on the island, guarded by a fortress.

Because of its strategic location, it was occupied by Charisian Marines during the Iythria Expedition after two-five days to defeat the garrison in the fortress. (HFAF)
