Islands Of The Circle Sea: Firzogny Island
Far up the Balgorz river, where it widens into Lake Firzogny, you’ll find Firzogny Island, a mountainous place with thick pine forests, rushing streams and only one small town. It’s a peaceful and relaxing place far away from the problems of civilization. Quite far, actually, since the nearest town of any size is 200 miles away and the nearest true city is over 300 miles past that. Truth to tell, there are many other places closer to home for most people to go relax and get back to nature.
So why come all the way to Firzogny Island? Fishing. You see, the many streams, rivers, ponds and lakes on the island are home to some of the rarest, most tasty and most challenging to catch fish on the planet. Fishermen have been known to travel 2,000 miles and spend big money to come here to fish for king trout, skarfish, hazoo and the rarest of all, the white alvod. The guides from the village lead parties of fisherman high into the mountains to pristine lakes or the best spots on streams. Some parties will travel the length of the island over a two week period.
On the island, all differences and animosities from the outside world are forgotten. Nobody is a king or wealthy merchant or admiral or pirate. Everybody is just a fisherman out to catch the big one.

Islands Of The Circle Sea: The Mox Islands
Four islands make up this group and all of them are dormant volcanoes. The largest island, Mox Veku, is 9 miles across. The smallest is, Mox Dolu, is 2 miles across and barely pokes up 170 feet above the waves. All four of the islands are within 2 miles of each other. Forests of short balbo trees cover all of the islands and no mammals or reptiles live here. Aside from the hundreds of species of birds that live here full or part time, the only other land species are sea frogs, who are found in huge numbers.
The main distinction of the Mox Islands is that they are the most remote islands on the planet, lying 1,700 miles from any other island and 2,500 miles from the mainland. Few ships have ever been there and nobody lives on any of the islands.
