    The main continent has some interesting geohistory. It seems that the moonfall has planted quite a few moonpoles, and more than that. The Rent of Pirule is a huge comical skid mark across the land, pushing up mountains in a ring to the northeast of its terminus. Further, more shards and lumps of moon material fell in the southern area of Karamuha, breaking off huge hunks of land and creating the Alba islands, and billions of tons fell in the southern mountains, mounding up in different directions and intermixing with the preexisting limestone. After the limestone dissolved out and washed away, there were tremendous caverns left remaining, made almost entirely of moon metal. Now inhabited by the Dugunder people, it is a source of great mystic energy and somewhat of a shrine to magic.
    The moonpole onslaught had even more impact along the eastern sea. A line of poles landed in the sea from the present area of the Great Swamp, to the present location of the Ho'omo'lo'gai islands, and further to the east and along the western shores of Oojdorr. They struck with such ferocity that they cracked the crust, exposing the mantle and initiating volcanism (creating the islands) and shearing the western part of Oojdoor, causing it to be drawn under the sea to the west and creating Dougnarr's Cliffs to the east. To this day the resulting undersea mountain range still creates new islands and creates treacherous conditions for sea travel. The Swamp, itself, is believed to have been developed by this giant crack.

    The marshes are interesting. As with Earth, the eastern sea is higher than the western sea (case in point - the Atlantic and Pacific across Panama), Perhaps the tides of the three moons, changing every few days, create height differences and allow the water to change course over the length of the marshes (several thousand miles, it seems). Sometimes the water begins flowing to the east, then the tides change and it backs up, slowly flooding the marshes. Within a day, the water drains and flows even both ways at the same time! Truly a chaotic system.
    The flows would create deltas on both ends. They would create the perfect biological system for producing one of the land's most prodigious crops, delk.

Wherever he came from, Iokine is the guardian of truth and good, though his followers sometimes take their ideals to extremes.

    The Sea of Slaught is a huge inland body of water along whose shores humankind has flourished since his inception. The moderate and calm weather coupled with rich soil created an ideal medium for planting. The circular wind patterns have lent well to a counter-clockwise trade route.
    The Sea was created during the crash of the metal moon, just before the creation of the Rent of Pirule. It is believed that one fragment, probably a more regularly-shaped lump, struck the land from the north to south, mounding the mountains along the southern shores. Some of the soil mounded up and formed the Isle of Glint, to the east. Several moonpoles, named Simon's Sisters, then impaled the sea near its center. These poles have been used for navigation for many years.

Covered with palms and succulent fruit, the newcomers were so taken by the beauty of the islands that they decided they were created by a nature god they created named Gai (gah - ee). They adopted a natural lifestyle and became fierce warriors, consolidating most of the islands along the east coast into one kingdom.

    Oojdoor
    As lush as the islands are to the southeast, the small continent of Oojdoor is barren and unforgiving. Lying farther to the north, the land was forever changed by the line of moonpoles that pierced the crust and sent the tectonic plates moving vertically (east plate higher than the west by some 2000'), creating huge cliffs along the western shore. High waterfalls are the ending point of great salmon streams that run from the central mountains to the west, making Mekdenoot a major fishing supplier. The nearby upper plateau provides grazing for goats, cattle and sheep.

    The people of the continent call themselves Oojay (oo-jay), and are a strange mix of Starborn and human, normally ranging between 7 feet and eight feet tall but thick of limb and blue- to green-tinted skin. As they most likely arrived from Ho'omo'lo'gai there is some Raugnorrn DNA in the mix - besides being seven feet tall or more, some of the gaunt slenderness of the Starborn had been overcome by the thick musculature of the Raugnorm, creating a formidable race of fighting giants.

    The continent of Oojdoor has its share of violent geology, and its meteorology follows closely in severity. The only two known Everstorms to have been witnessed happened along the western coast a few generations ago. The entire soil and land was washed and leached clean of any nutrients, leaving a strange anomaly, in each location, of a hot desert far to the north, not far from a glacier. Other places are thought to have been created by these huge storms in the past, namely Varah and on Felune, but wizards cannot be sure of this.

    The other three cities along the south and east coasts have developed into fishing and whaling ports, boasting healthy trade routes to the Islands, Eastport and Far'ellen. But Mekdenoot, being isolated from the ocean and the rest of the populace by mountains and deserts, has developed its own government, much like Pirulea of Toulne, an industriocracy, in this case based on foodstuff. Over years, great walkways have been cut into the cliffs and lead to a floating pier city known as Choolanoot, allowing Mekdenoot to trade.

    From mixing with humans, their race gained the trait of hair growth - many of the fighting clans adopt beards and long hair as symbols of their family and badges of courage. The hair tends, however, to adopt natural blue, blonde, red or green tints.

    Of particular note, a sizeable amount of Oojay have adopted a cult following of racial bias. These Starborn believe their race should be clean and free of all other traits, to the point of ethnic cleansing in the form of murder of children born outside their cult. They name themselves Pagooja, or "no mix". They live mostly in the central mountains and along the edges of the Everstorm deserts, and conduct very secretive meetings.

    Dugdunder – A massive network of cave dwellings and mountain huts that sprawls over several miles of rocky, mountainous terrain on the southeast. Ruled by a sentient pile of rubble called “The Breath”; the people here worship their ruler as a god, and believe it to have breathed life into the first of their people. The odd creature has been around for as long as any histories go, and is believed to be one of the direct results of the initial moon impact on the planet. The ores dug out of this area are source of a great wealth to its people, though they have little care for the material comforts that such wealth could provide.
    Boldegash – This city spans a large piece of land that connects with the western coast, and is thus a grand center of commerce with other cities on the coast and even with the continent of Felune. It is ruled by a moon-cursed named Zanarin Tuille. Often called the most ancient of the moon-cursed, Zanarin has existed for untold generations and in doing so has become a creature of tremendous power. He is ruthless in pursuit of goals outside of his lands, but is benevolent to those within his rule. His city boasts a quite successful class of artisans, and the materials produced in Boldegash are often considered to be among the best in the land.

    Kara City – Out of his pure and absolute arrogance, the ruler of this city, a half-fiend mystic theurge named simply “Gemnon”, proclaims his area of rule as the capital of Karamuha itself. He still holds to that, most probably due to none of the other rulers caring too much than due to his actual power, though considerable. The city is ruled by Gemnon’s totalitarian regime, with absolute and brutal authority over nearly every aspect of life. There is a tremendous gap between the lowest classes and the higher classes, all hand picked allies of Gemnon. Known for its surplus of inexpensive (slave) labor, Kara City produces a multitude of items that the artisans of Boldegash find to be beneath their considerable skill.
    Vaurguard – This sprawling land of plains and steppes can’t really be called a focused city, but is more a collection of clans that live a nomadic life within their own area in the east of Karamuha. Ruled by a powerful rage prophet named Krue Darhund, the people of Vaurguard exist largely on their own without outside intervention. They hunt, live off the land, and protect their own with fierce determination. They’re a proud and practical people, but tend towards the idea of survival of the fittest. If one of their people can’t hunt for himself, often times his life is quite short. Some clans of Vaurguard have been known to raid nearby villages or passing caravans, but the people mostly keep to themselves unless provoked.
