town of Pine lies on its northeastern shore.  On its southern plain, the Gaohund people halted their flight from the xenocide of the Widge.  Amid the rocks known as The Broken Spears, they inflicted such a bite into the marauding Widge that they were left alone on the Waning Isles for two hundred years.  See Western Isles, Battle of the Broken Spears, Pine,  the Atlas of the Western Isles

Kannad
was a fishing town on the easternmost point of Stanton, the largest of the Middle Islands.  See the Atlas of the Middle Isles

Kershaw Nest
was one of the largest on Irin, which existed on the north side of Irin for centuries before the Great Retreat.  Their castle lay on the Kershaw River, a branch of the Kerkik.  The nest controlled virtually all of central Irin, with their population densest in the Kerkik Lowlands, but with many ranches and pasturages, spread over the highlands to its west, south, and east.   Because of the danger presented by stoudines, the southern slopes remained uninhabited until the Great Retreat .  The chief rivals of the Kershaw were Irin of the Johnson Nest, who lived on Tirin Bay just over the highlands, and their allies in the Irin River Valley.  See the Atlas of Irin and Surrounding Isles.   

Kerral was a small city on the Kerkik River, on the Kerkik Lowlands on the north side of Irin.  See the Atlas of Irin and Surrounding Isles.

Lowens Park
was the largest park in New Warrick.  In a slight depression between Old Town and Breston Academy, the park was thickly planted with deciduous trees.  In the spring, the trees were covered with tiny sprays of white flowers, giving the park a fairylike appearance.  Their dark, thin, wet-looking branches reached up through translucent cottony crowns like giant dandelions gone to seed.  The Devout could often be seen there, arranging themselves in formation, lines and rows, performing slow, regular movements in unison. The Captains' Memorial stands just at the edge of Lowens Park.  During the Revolution of 10219, the Rebels ripped out the trees and them replaced with Leek

Middle Islands  carry the densest population of the Gaohund people, as well as the being the most industrial.  Loyalties and cultural similarities in the Middle Isles tend not to be consistent across islands, but rather the people living in cities and towns along the Sound, who are agricultural and agri-business, associate with each other and look down on Stannout, Scotz, Kannad, and Hams, which are full of fisherfolk.  (South Shores was a more recent settlement, and consists of summer homes for many of the richer Sounders.)  In winter, residents of the Sound have been known to take sleds across the ice.   Sounds Cuisine: pasta and or vegetables with cream sauces, flavored with celery or other herbs; fish and shellfish.  See the Atlas of the Middle Isles
