The only spoiler I will give is "Extra dimensional realities."
Actually, "Firecave" is the name of a village (pop. – 813) not the name of a true cave system. There are a lot more locales on the map than previous CC2 map versions. Firecave is one of them.I have a question. What is in the fire caves of the holds of Guthell in the Samuanel Isles?
While I didn't design it that way on purpose, yes, the space between the Orochen Forest and Enhgir Forest would likely be used as a trade route between Cemphar and lands on the extreme northern coast. Icewall, in particular, would likely rely on this trade as it isn't a major port like both Quai and Haaphánskal. (Note that those two cities aren't strong allies and neither controls Icewall.) There aren't true roads this far north. Well worn trails, yes, but true "roman roads," no. The unforested corridor would be safer than traveling through the forests, but it will have its own hazards. For example, the freezing wind blowing in from the north would be a real danger during the winter. Plus, raiding humanoids know to prey on travelers there.Is the space between the foreests to the noth a trade route between the coast and lands south of the forest, such as the Choikon Mountains?
There is a write up on The Horse Lands region over on The Piazza, which isn't 100% finished yet. Enhgir is detailed there while Orochen is detailed under the section for The Far North. The Far North section is posted here on EN World too.That is interesting! Thank you! There just might be some helpful humanoids hiding in the shadows too?
The Ketto are based off the Ket people. From Wikipedia: "Kets are a Siberian people who speak the Ket language. In the Russian Empire they were called Ostyaks, without differentiating them from several other Siberian peoples. Later they became known as Yenisey ostyaks, because they lived in the middle and lower basin of the Yenisei River in the Krasnoyarsk Krai district of Russia."What's a Ketto?
Kulan is a mix of standard fantasy ideas (from D&D and many d20 sourcebooks) with real world information gleaned from Wikipedia. Of course, the Wikipedia stuff might not be 100% accurate but it suits my purpose for a roleplaying world just fine. The Ketto are, indead, an example of using (or re-skinning) the real world for the setting.Ah. Do you use very much real life to base you world on, this being an example of that?
I would say its more like the Huns, but it's not written in stone.What kindof people on the horse lands? Attila the Hun or Ghengus Khan?
