Cape Corenthal
Cape_Corenthal.jpg

Overview

This low-lying ridge jutts out into the Caphalgi sea. The waters directly south of the headland are somewhat sheltered from the Caphalgi by the cape and by Reosin island, making a fair haven for the port city of Corenthal, located just to the north of the mouth of the Jotham River.
The name of cape also synecdochically refers to the sloping plains and low hills between the Talethgy mountains and some forty miles of coast to either side of the cape itself.

Sites and Features

The Cape

Cape Corenthal is the end of a low north-facing ridge extending westwards from Ropheog until it breaks at the point of the cape. The cape to an extent shields the harbour of the city of Corenthal behind it, though like a double-edged sword also presents a navigational hazard to those navigating around it, particularly on stormy nights. Though no permanent structure exists, on occasion large bonfires have been built on the ridge at its tip to warn ships of its position.

City of Corenthal

The largest city in the Cape Corenthal region, Corenthal is an important port for not only the Cape region, but also surrounding regions. The Baron of Cape Corenthal holds his court in Corenthal.

Mejyn
