“One thing you will note when traveling through the Counties of Diara, is the almost pompous extravagance that marks every event, locale, and person of note. If one does not own the rarest and most expensive fashions, then one will not get invited to special dinners and the like. In fact, even the servants dress with utmost decor! Why do they pine so for extra details? I guess the worst insult you can throw at them would be to say that they look…plain.” —Mel Bellringer, Companion of the Relics
The Realm of Dhea Loral
Updated in Spring 2019, it’s been decades since a complete map of Dhea Loral had been made. The original full sketch was lost a long time ago. My local gamers will appreciate this, as it contains a more full look than anything I’ve allowed in-game. So much of the world has yet to recover from the Godswars, that few people outside of ship captains and scholars could boast knowledge of all the ports and lands which make up this region of the planet Epos Goth.

Northern Quoros features the Northern half of the continent Quoros. Includes Kashmer’s Protectorate and Troutbrook. Kashmer figures prominently in a few of my books, and has been the launching point for RPG campaigns in my world.
Southern Quoros encompasses the Southern half of the continent Quoros and includes the Kingdom of Gheras and Orlaun. Orlaun, (Sprawling Towers, City of Spires), has also been a large part of my books and campaigns. Its two competing mage guilds and open library make it one of the most educated centers of this region.
Northern Shard area is the Northern half of the continent, including the Shard Stonelands and Tribal Expanse. This area saw an important battle in Muster of Heroes.
Diara is much like the feudal lands of old Europe. A broken line of royal heritage has fractured the governments of this continent. Leaders of the separate Counties all declare their right to rule, though so far they’ve settled their differences in tournament battles.
