Ways of the Seven
Innstatten is a province in southern Valua located between Tennuvia, to the north, and Thule to the south. It is composed of coastal hills and vast, mostly empty plains. Residents of Innstatten scrape out a living in sod houses, mostly by subsistence farming in the poor soil. Violent storms frequently blow in from the Gulf of Harask, blasting the inland plains with high winds. Innstatten has no major cities to speak of, though a few coastal towns exist on the shores of the Gulf, the largest of which is its capitol, Innismoor. Unfortunately, these towns tend to be havens for pirates, since they provide an easy home base for lucrative raiding of ships traveling from Avandras to Ouroban. Indeed, the local government of Innstatten is (many believe deliberately) lax in the enforcement of anti-piracy laws.
