OVERVIEW:
The successful whaling city on the shores of the vast Yanthian gulf, Klinsor represents a major trading power in central Santharia. Unlike Ciosa, its sister city, Klinosr’s fame was not earned by adventurous sea expeditions nor by trade of luxurious goods from distant lands and settlements like Shan’Tai on Aeruillin and it certainly is not a place for delving into the endless stars above. Klinsor earned its fame as a rather unfriendly town, simple if you please, devoted to several occupations where whale hunt stands out as the most important one and where trade follows quite closely. Founded by Fjorkvild “Lightsale” Snigsonn, a rebellious captain who was sent to explore the southern shores by the Avennorian king himself, Klinsor resembles the Avennoria of old...

DESCRIPTION:
-at first there is a matter of size to settle, on the Santhworld map, Klinsor looks more like a village while on the Manthrian and Santharian maps it looks like a city at least as half as large as Ciosa (around 30.000 inhabitants), is it alright for me to suppose that on the Santhworld map, only the centre for the city is shown while most of living homes are located around that centre?
-the general atmosphere would be creepy in the centre, with light mist of fumes coming from the rendering yards, while around it the mist will be hardly visible but the smell would be felt even there
-most Klinsorian buildings would be made of bricks and whalebones
-detailed descriptions of the buildings mentioned in the Santhworld version would also find their place here, with several other important buildings (like the Mayor’s house for example as well as Whaler’s Guild’s guildhouse)
-important sections of the city (trading area, temple area, docks....) will also be elaborated in detail

PEOPLE:
-quite a simple bunch, in short; honouring the traditions of ancient Avennoria, there were even some cases of slavery and sacrificing after those two were forbidden
-mostly whale-hunters and traders, with quite a portion of population working in the Whaler’s Guild in different kinds of occupations, the Whaler’s Guild actually runs the city thus enjoying high renown amongst Skeijorn families in the Duchy
-short paragraphs about Klinsorisan daily routine will be found here as well as sections about famous people in the city (including the Mayor, the guildmaster of the Whaler’s Guild...)

Just something I noticed:

Quote from: The Avennorian Men Entry, History Section
ca. 11320 b.S.     Thorgeir's Naming of the Tribe
Ciosa's son Thorgeir is given leadership of the people. He names them the "Av'ennors" in the Glandorian tongue, which means the "Arrived Ones".

Quote
ca. 10330 b.S.       Peace treaty between Avennorians and Serphelorians
Under the leadership of Thorgeir of the Avennorians and Etain of the Serphelorians these two kingdoms sign an important trade treaty. This treaty includes a clause stipulating that the Avennorians will help the Serphelorians in the finishing of their capital, and that the two tribes will found "Chrondra". The name of this town derives from the Serphelorian word for "agreement" and is similar to the Glandorian word "chronida", meaning to cement or join together.

According to these two quotes, Thorgeir, son of Troy Ciosa, lived for almost a thousand years... Do Glandorians live this long or is it just a mistake?

Mistake, or , this guy was named after the first one.. Avennorians don't live 1000 years! They are human.
