 Overview:  In the midst of the Adanian Sea, two islands come together to form the Kingdom of Dorania.  This sparsely inhabited kingdom is to the East of Santharia and dominated by stretches of inhospitable desert.

 Location:  The Kingdom of Dorania is East of Santharia, North of the continent of Aeurellian, and South-west of the island of Denilou.  It is surrounded by the Adanian Sea, though the Burning Sea is just to the South.

 Geography:  The kingdom of Dorania is made up of two seperate isles, with varying geographical make-up.

Isle of Khaan-Duul:  The small Northerly island is thought to have actually been attached to the larger island, but was broken away during a bad earthquake.  This isle is dominated by a river flowing through the center of the land.  This river, along with the flat land makes the area quite green and fertile.  The flooding of the river in it's southern area is due to the more abundant vegetation found in the Heath of Maar.

Isle of Doranthakar:  The main, and much larger, isle is home to two seperate geographical areas.  This is the Eastern, or barren, coast and the Western coast.  The Desert of Phenyuul dominates the North-Eastern section of the isle.  There is a small river, that is the only life source in the East, near the Mountains of Nash.  On the other side of the bank lies the unforgiving Wantan Drylands.  It is not but cracked, parched earth to the sea.  On the Western coast though, it is quite another story.  The North-west area is covered by the Heaths of Gyuor.  While still being somewhat dry, there is still plenty of plant and animal life here.  Off the coast between the Mountains of Nash and the Yin Mountains lie the Rocks of Khyling.  This dreaded reef has never let a ship through it's maze of rocks.  Just to the South lies the most fertile area in the kingdom.  There is a large delta that is fed by the Ypherran.  

 Weather:  There are two seperate weather fronts at work here.  There is the West-East warm front from Santharia, and the East-West hot front that come from the Burning Sea and Aeurillian.  This explains why the deserts are located soley on the Eastern side.  When these two fronts collide they can cause tremendeous summer monsoons, it is these monsoons that are the life blood of the Western side of the island.

 Inhabitants:  This island is settled strictly by man.  There are two seperate groups of people who live here.  The desert tribes live in the Eastern section of the larger isle.  They have a nomadic lifestyle as no area is rich enough to support a tribe for long.  In the Northern isle and the Western section of Doranthakar are the farmers and traders.

 Plant/Animal Life:  Whithout saying there is more life on the western side of the Isle of Doranthakar, and the Northern Isle, it is the plants and animals of the deserts that are far more interesting.  These creatures and plants have adapted to rely on the monsoons to sustain them.  During the monsoon season many short lived plants and insects will come alive, and the desert is almost a whole nother enviroment.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
