A Traveler's Guide to the Turamzzyrian Empire
Estoria

<< PREVIOUS Turamzzyrian Empire NEXT >>

Estoria is a large peninsula that juts out from the main continent. It has wet, hot summers and cold, bitter winters. The largest storms of record have swept across Estoria. It has a great deal of coastline, and is home to fishers and whalers.

Major Cities and Towns

Idolone

Idolone is a major port for the Empire. It is situated on the north-facing bank of the peninsula that comprises most of Estoria. Idolone is a trade center and is open to ships from all ports. However, non-humans are regarded with suspicion, and have to go farther to prove their trustworthiness than humans. For this reason, there are more human merchants and travelers utilizing the facilities than non-humans.

Resources

Estoria relies on the seas for most needs. Fishing and whaling industries provide food enough for the Earldom as well as the major exports: food, lamp oil, and dyes from shellfish. Inland farms dot the landscape as well.

The small inland farms of Estoria barely manage to produce a rich red burgundy wine, battling wet summers and cold winters.

Local Lore and Customs

A slender, craggy rock called The Antler marks the western edge of the beaches near Idolone. When sea winds are strong, a haunting wail comes from the rock, and local legend holds that it is the spirits of the drowned wailing. Sailors claim that a tempest is on the way if one sees a sea-stallion galloping around the rocky spire.

It is common folklore in Estoria that a dose of seawater taken every morning immediately after getting out of bed, from childhood onward, will ensure a long life. Bunches of seaweed are gathered to hang in the kitchen, where they serve to keep evil spirits at bay. Those who suffer from nervous complaints are advised to take nine successive plunges in the sea in one morning.
