A Darkness That Can Be Felt
Annalay is a continent situated entirely in the northern hemisphere, and entirely in the Western hemsiphere of Cissonius. It is bordered to the north by the Iskalad ocean, to the east by the Bloddig sea, and to the south by the Frakt sea.
Annalay has a population of about 500 million individuals of many races; including, but not limited to, in descending order of population: Humans, Dwarves, Elves, Half-Elves, Halfings, Half-Orcs, and Gnomes.
Annalay was first settled on a very small scale by High Elves some millions of years ago, but on a larger scale by Dwarves 800 000 years ago, and was only fairly recently by men 5 000 year ago; and population, economy, and culture exploded with the entrance of man.
Annalay is an evolved version of the old dwarven word for iron, iarann.
