Istivin : City of Shadows.
Sterich (pronounced stair-ick) encompasses a large valley to the east of the Crystalmist Mountains between the arms of the Jotens mountain range to the south and the haunted Stark Mounds to the north. Flowing west to east through the middle of this large valley is the Davish River, which empties into the mighty Javan River , reputedly the longest river in the civilized lands. The Javan marks the eastern border of Sterich. Sterich is approximately 150 miles wide north to south and 240 miles wide west to east. Beyond the Javan is the Kingdom of Keoland. South of the Jotens is a state known as The Yeomanry, though the Jotens make any direct travel there very dangerous. North of the Stark Mounds is the Grand Duchy of Geoff , (pronounced g’yeff) whose ruler is a distant relative of the ruling house of Sterich.
