The Apparatus of Jokaryn
Hidden within the innumerable small islands between Tsul and Otak, the island of Al Qutt represents a relative balance of the elements in a region largely overwhelmed by air and fire. Protected by a large horseshoe shaped peak, the mountain run-off has allowed a forest to flourish under the protection of the mountains, watered by a river. Whilst desert has expanded to fill the regions less protected, the largely island and its sheltered bay have recently become of strategic import.
Thanks to its unique climate and position within the northern archepelago, Al Qutt has become the base of operations for the rebellion, and a small town, named after the island, has begun to grow around the bay itself.
