Moonkær lies on the eastern shores of the Beleuren Sea on the level northwestern part of the rising east Eshae platform. It borders the Gulf of Phynn, between Litharland and Ilyovoch. Average elevation reaches only 50 m (164 ft).
Since the Ebon Crusade, Ethinia has been divided into six territories: The Bishoprics of Anagul, Lucopya and Eulum; Eravya (controlled by the Order of the Sacred Silhouette), the Duchy of Moonkær conquered by Dynosse in 1219 AI and the unconquered region of Ethinia around the Kuuloss islands including Umaahii island.
Oil shale and limestone deposits, along with forests which cover 77% of the land, play key economic roles in this generally resource-poor country. Ethinia boasts thousands of lakes, numerous bogs, and sizeable coastline marked by numerous bays, straits, and inlets.
Ethinia is a flat region and has a long, shallow coastline with over 1,500 islands dotting the shore. The two largest islands are Kuuloss (literally, “island land”), and Umaahii. The two islands are the only unconquered areas of the Ethinia region. The region’s highest point, Suur Munamägi (Egg Mountain), is in the hilly southeast and reaches 318 m (1,043 ft) above sea level. Ethinia is mostly covered in forest and its numerous lakes. The largest of them, Nightmist Lake, forms much of the border between Moonkær and Ilyovoch at the foot of the Draakoni Tagasi (Dragon’s Back Mountains). Located in central Ethinia, Falling Star Lake is the second-largest. The Norygor and Emyogh are among the most important of the region’s many rivers.
A small cluster of craters, the largest of which is called Kaali are found on the island of Kuuloss. What caused these craters is unknown.
