Elo Goblands

Location: Swanamutu region, northeast of Akuba, northwest of Tangor. SK

Area: Precise area unknown, but the goblinoid tribes control an area that is not much smaller than the Empire of Tangor; supposedly more than 300,000 sq. mi.(777,000 sq. km.).

Population: More than 200,000 humanoids.

Languages: Goblin, Hobgoblin, other humanoid tongues.

Coinage: Most tribes use barter only; otherwise Tangor or any other coin.

Taxes: None.

Government Type: Tribes.

Industries: Varies by tribe: agriculture (fungi), mining (iron), smithing, hunting, goat herding, raiding and war.

Important Figures: Dilynne (King of Scovery (Red Fox city)).

Climate and Terrain: The Elo Goblands are sub-tropical. The region sits at the threshold from temperate forest to the first hints of jungle. Winter is short (about a couple of months) and rather rainy, the temperature ranging from 10 to 15C; autumn and spring are long, warm (20 to 30C) and vary much from year to year. Summers are hot and generally are made up of a rainy month with a couple of dry months immediately before autumn. During the summer, temperatures may reach 35C, and the humidity is incredible.

Flora and Fauna: The animals encountered here may be jaguars, baboons, apes, crocodiles and alligators, and many, many species of insects and snakes of different degrees of poison strength. Flora includes the typical jungle trees, but near the mountains and westward toward Tangor pine trees may be easily encountered.
