The Dragonshome islands are a large archipelago that runs north to south in the Middle Sea. A treacherous set of sea passages separates the islands from the lands of Rus and Norjard to the north. The islands are home to a confederation of independent, allied city states known as the Drákon League.
The northern islands (Vóreio nisí) are covered in steep mountains which get a large amount of snowfall during the winter months, giving ways to lush green mountainsides and valleys in the summer. Íliopólis can be found on the largest northern island, and Froúrio can be found on a smaller island just to the south of Vóreio nisí. The central island (Megálo nisí) is home to the capital city of the Drákon League, Astériapólis. The largest by landmass, the island is split by rough mountains covered with ancient boreal forests. Nótio nisí) and the surrounding smaller islands are humid and subtropical. The islands support dense tropical rain-forest like cover, with the rainy season coming in spring. The southern island is home to a number of small cities and towns, the largest of which is Fengáripólis.
