Eryn Norvë (the Unknown Lands)

Eryn Norvë; commonly known as the "Unknown Lands" or the "Forbidden Continent," is one of the five continents of Oris, located far to the west across the Wyn Myr. These lands are known only to the Grey-Elves.

Only a select few human sailors have even glimpsed this far-off, exotic land. It lies across the great Wyn Myr Ocean and is the mythical home of all elves. It is from here that the Silvar-Elves sailed to Corwyn in the First Age. Few, if any, men have ever seen the continent, and legends say said that Erevon Elashaar; the Elvish God of the Sea, does not allow passage to any ship other than one sailed by elves.


Legends speak of great cities, and places where the Gods themselves walk freely, but no one knows anything for sure. Only the Grey-Elves regularly visit this far off continent, and the western Wyn Myr makes the trip very dangerous because of dangerous and violent storms.

The only known city on this continent is the seaport of Rys Thalor, located on the eastern coast. Beyond the city is the enormous wasteland called the Red Desert. Much of the continent is covered by the enormous Emerald Forest.
