the second-largest continent on alksheist. it is largely covered in swamps and marshes, though drier forests can be found toward the center of the country. the mainland is home to twenty-one elven tribes and is the most undeveloped portion of land in alksheist. off the western coast is robin's nest, egivelyn's capital, which is a semi-modern city with stone age architecture.
the scarlet strait is a narrow body of water between the northern coast of alluum and the southern coast of copun. in the summer months, red plankton bloom in the warm waters, turning the water bright red and coating the many rocks that jut from the water in red.
