Trade Routes of the Émel Gálani

Émel GalaniThe Émel Gálani (Middle Straits) are the waters between the isle of Hârn and the Lýthian mainland. At their narrowest point, they are just 12 and 1/2 leagues across.

Numerous ships ply the routes through the straits, many connecting the port of Chèrafîr on the Hârnic isle of Mèlderýn to those on the mainland. Others pass between the coastal ports of Álagon, Emélrenè and Palíthanè, and beyond to locations farther north and south.

The renowned loremaster Fástred of Beréma has produced numerous charts used by the wealthier pilots and ship captains of the region.

Two versions of Master Fástred's charts are provided here: an ordinary or mundane version, which shows a selection of trade routes all at once, and a much more rare example which shows only those routes that the owner wishes to view at any given time. Only a very few of this second, magically endowed chart are in use.

Two PDF files are provided:

  • a simple PDF document, showing all the trade routes identified by the loremaster Fástred (emel_galani_f.pdf)
  • a multi-layered PDF document, which mimics the more rare document which can display a variable number of routes (emel_galan_m.pdf)

For assistance on how to use the multi-layered PDF, see http://www.kelestia.com/mapguide_faq

Atlas Keléstia - SHKN AX & A9 (Ârgonel & Kálen)

Hark. Did someone say Emélrenè?

Keléstia Productions are happy to announce the publication of the 16th and 17th issues of Atlas Keléstia.

Combined these two issues describe map squares AX (Ârgonel) and A9 (Kálen) on the Shôrkýnè regional map, an area including the northwest coast of the kingdom of Emélrenè and parts of Quándas Bay. Gamemasters should find these maps useful when moving their campaigns from the islands of Mélderyn (which lies immediately to the west) and Hârn east to Emélrenè and the mainland of Lythia or perhaps to the northern lands of Chélemby, Hârbáal and Ivínia

Atlas Keléstia - SHKN H5 (Tázela), revised

Keléstia Productions have published the 15th issue of Atlas Keléstia. It describes map square SHKN-H5 (Tázela) and details an area in the interior of southern Hârbaal, including most of Tázela thranáal in the sub-kingdom of Tónanby, as well as large wilderness portions of northern Géltheim and Ánvâl.

This is a revised and updated version to a map square originally included in the Atlas Keléstia "Chélemby-Géltheim Folio", published in 2004. In addition to an improved "vegetation & relief" layer, the revised map includes a dozen new minor villages. Several more peaks and rivers have been named, and some lesser wilderness trails added. Some locations marked on the original map but not included in the original text are now described.

Tára: Chapter 5 - Joining the Heron

City of KâremusKâremus, Álagon, 3 Halánè, TR716

Unseasonably cold and miserable rain splashed down on the outer wharf of Kâremus. Tára pulled her cloak tighter, but it did little to keep her warm.

She glanced back bitterly once more at the ship tied up at the wharf. The captain and senior crew seemed to have already forgotten her as they busied themselves about unloading the ship.
