From the shores of Southport, stretched northward are the Filgore Mountains. They are the tallest on the island, an impenetrable barrier separating Bon Abbi and Casselberry territories. The range continues northeast, separating Midland and Bon Abbi up to Bon Abbi city proper. From there, a wall begins, which extends westward toward the Alder Woods mountain range.
Somewhere, west of Cornor, the last burg between Casselberry and Southport, is an entrance leading into the Filgore Valley.

Josah and the Evermores are the only people to have ever navigated through the Valley and survived.
With its source high in the Alder Woods mountain range, the river Gilley Run flows down and across the border of Bon Abbi, parallel to the Wall.

Known for their lentil wheat fields, farms tend to have less free time due to extra work they must perform. Their name refers to the fact that all their farmlands are south, or below, the main road.
Captain Munro’s Ships
There are currently 9 Ships in this directory
One of three sloops in the Evermore fleet, Claradell’s name means ‘bright and beautiful.’ A sloop is a smaller, single-mast vessel, typically used to transport light cargo between ports quickly. This type of ship cannot sail into open waters. While it offered speed, the Claradell, and the other two sloops owned by the Evermores, sails along the coasts, crossing over between the Mainlands, in the Straits, south of Liez. Four crew are aboard this ship, including the Captain.
Meaning ‘hardworking,’ the Emeline is a Knarr ship and one of two in the Evermore fleet. Knarrs are working vessels designed to carry large and heavy cargo. Long and broad, the Emeline and Talula are employed to transport building materials, foundations stone, logs, and hardware. There is thirteen crew, counting the Captain, aboard this ship.
The first ship Josah ever sailed on his own. Although he ended up ramming the ship into the pier on Rona Island, sailing it is still a fond memory for him. Captain Munro later sold the vessel to the McKanzels. Josah named his Dragoon ‘Ena’ (which means ‘nobility or well-born’) after the name of this ship.
A caravel ship, the Griffin is a smaller version of the Molly Red. Riding deep in the water gives it the ability to cut through rough seas. The Griffin can sail fast and into the wind. Its construction includes thicker planking, three broad-beamed masts, with both square and triangular sails. ‘Griffin’ means ‘strong lord,’ after the mythical creature of half eagle and lion. There is eighteen crew, including the Captain, working on this ship.
The second and more significant of the sloops in the Evermore fleet, Hedda Spree is known for its speed. With its name meaning ‘refuge in war,’ this vessel has escaped many potential conflicts. The ship often carries contraband, outrunning those regulating shipments. Four crew and a Captain are aboard this ship.
The third sloop in the Evermore fleet sails mainly from Rona Island to Rueland. Whenever builders need to travel to other cities, this ship carries them to Mercil or Liez Bay. The name Masie means ‘pearl.’ A crew of four is needed to operate this ship.
The star of the Evermore fleet is the Molly Red, a carrack vessel. It is long and broad, capable of carrying heavy cargo. The ship has multiple masts and square sails. Once moving, the Molly Red dominates the seas with its speed. The hull is cavernous for those heavy loads, with many levels and decks. The red whale merging out of the water is her symbol. With twenty crew, the Molly Red is a formidable vessel.
Meaning ‘leaping water,’ this is the second Knarr vessel in the Evermore fleet. Heavy cargo causes the ship to leap as it cuts through the waves. These large cargo ships are broad and designed mostly to carry heavy load between East and West Mainlands. The Emeline and Talula only transport legitimate cargo as they could never out sail most vessels. But because of their massive weight, ramming another ship would inflict severe damage. It takes seventeen crew, counting the Captain, to sail this ship.
A brigantine ship, the Willowese is the fastest ship in the Evermore fleet. The Willowese has fifteen crewmembers, including the Captain, but can transport one hundred people or carry huge loads. With square rigging on the foremast and fore-and-aft rigging on the mainmast, this vessel rides high in the water, making it easy to maneuver and very fast. It often carries contraband, both objects, and people.
