Latanoss is an Island located off the coast of Saltwater’s Weep. It is only about 20 miles in diameter and is volcanic in nature, though its peak has long been dormant. Most of the island is a great mass of jungle and rugged cliffs. A great crack runs down the center of the island turning into the only good harbor, a sheltered lagoon that leads up to a protected valley. At the tip of this valley near the base of the volcano is a polished white keep built to serve Nekalim the Alchemist.
The dominant form of life upon Latanoss are the great saurian dinosaurs, yet sailors claim that the huge beasts have only been upon the island for the last 50 years or so and before that there was nothing larger than the occasional tiger.
Rumor has it that villages have begun springing up among the largest of the forest trees, perched on the edge of the cliffs like the nests of sea birds. For all of that no sailor has seen sign of human habitation aside from Nekalim’s keep. Large numbers of Apes have been seen moving along the edges of the jungles however and rumor has it that Nekalim has been experimenting on the animals to create a slave race for his twisted discoveries.
