I'd like to add to the development of Sorren. The Wild Islands, a dangerous place where only the extremely brave or extremely stupid would venture.

Intro- It is unknown currently of the Wild Islands exact location. All that is known about its location is it is east of the continent of Sarvonia, somewhere south of the Crimson Isles which are just west of Nybelmar. It was discovered by a non-famous sailor, Jakar Ulk, who was a human from the port city of Dasai.

DESCRIPTION- As you may see from the title, the Wild Islands are as the title says-wild. No known nation has conquered it, or even known of it. Although theories have been speculated about a small unknown nation occupying it before the wild tribes of human "natives"  invaded. These theories were founded upon the finding of a suit of armor of very fine make, and a boulder which have ancient runes which are very incoherent and hard to translate, but are nevertheless thought to be Santharian runes . Whether a party of conquering soldiering explorers found it and attempted to conquer these islands without the Kingdom of Santharia knowing or these runes are of the native tribes' make.Jakar Ulk was the first one to find the islands, and found it upon his landing.  
There are 6 small islands .

Landscape- The Wild Islands are mountanous, covered with forests and rainforests alike.  Low clouds hang over the mountains, creating an eerie sense of serenity and peace.  But don't be fooled by what nature tells you. Poisonous snakes, insects, spiders, and carnivorous animals inhabit it.  

Climate- These islands are very hot and humid. There are about 16 inches of rain per year.

Inhabitants- As already mentioned, native tribes inhabit the land. There are approximately 7 different tribes found in the Wild Islands. They are very violent, often warring with each other, except for during high thunderstorms, because of their belief that the gods are angry with them. During those times, they usually hide in caves,  for fear their gods will strike them.  Luckily, Jakar Ulk  was able to escape. Usually, the inhabitants will approach you in a group of about 3 people, depending on the size of the group. They will attack you immediately and without mercy. This is an instant indication that the natives wish to be left alone. One group of such explorers that tried to conquer the Wild Islands carried three mages in their group. There were about 15 people, but they were very strong warriors. As soon as one mage cast his first spell on those islands, a group of 50 warriors instantly came and cruelly murdered the conquistadors. This also indicates they hate magic, and view it as a cowardly way of approaching battle. They usually wear nothing more than loin cloths made of fur, wear a topknot on their heads, and carry spears, bows, and hatchets. They usually paint themselves as an indication of how strong they are. Heavily painted people are either the chiefs of the different tribes, or they are just extremely powerful warriors of a high position. The different tribes indicate what tribe they are from by the color of their foreheads. Rumors of elven necromancers have been circulated through out Sarvonia. Jarak Ulk was one such man as to see a small group of zombies made from the natives’ bodies being controlled by an elf in a black robe. This also indicates one of the reasons the natives hate magicians so much.

A beginning, Rhuyken, but needs some more details!

Territory: don't know if you will get away with this unkown location, I think you have to point at a cetain place on the map. Maybe you have a special island group in mind?

People: Much more detailed, where do they live, how(houses), how are they painted?This might need a new entry for a tribe, but there is a new tribe stop, perhaps you have to alter this. Or talk with Koldar, if the could be descentants of his tribe who ave developed, due to their surroundings into something different.

Fauna/Flora, more detailed, which plants excactly?mention at least a few, look in the herbarium if something fits...

Myth/lore/History?
don't mix it up, do seperate paragraphs

and so on.....
..and there are no inches..look under measurements
