[top]Description

The northern-most island in the Eunesian Isles, Chelseanna is an island of beaches, rolling vineyards and the occasional rocky terrain. There is a single mountain on the island that juts prominently above the rest of the city but by and large Chelseanna is a hilly area with many inlets, coves and canals that cut through the island.

[top]History

In recent history, the evacuation of Eunesia hit Chelseanna hard since much of its income was built around tourism and the students attending the Conservatorio. With the mainlanders disappearance the natives of Chelseanna had to make some tough choices. The city became a clearing house of stolen and smuggled goods. Most of this business was carried out during the darkening, and none of the citizens ever talked about it openly during the brightening. It was their dirty little secret- cooperating with pirates to survive.

[top]Geography

Terrain
Chelseanna sat on the northern edge of the Eunesian archipelago, and its position as the farthest island from the Medonian continent was reflected in the fiercely independent nature of its inhabitants and the uniqueness of its customs. Chelseanna hardly looks like a civilized island from a distance, the elongated mass of land offering little more than seemingly untamed beaches, rich with aromatic bushes and small clusters of rocks, and thickets of strangely tall evergreen conifers, the existence of which made possible by the island's northern location. The trees hide the interior from the gazer's curiosity, and many a travelers left wondering whether the island actually housed a city.

To the west of Port Chelseanna resided the Kountouras Fields- rich farmland dotted with family farms, orchards, and vineyards. The Chelseannans take immense pride in their olive oil and wine, along with their spectacular citrus groves that ringed the foot of Mount Tuli.

Climate
The islands of the Nesocratic Federation of Eunesia are a paradox among the lands in the north. It can be warm and bright in the islands of the Nesocratic Federation of Eunesia and yet just a few miles east, and blizzard snow of the Sodality of Carmelyn can be seen. All these can be put down to the fact that warm currents swirl around the islands, and that the cold northern winds of the Great Sea are not able to reach the islands. Instead, warm winds arise from the Eunesian Sea. Climate of the islands is subtropical, with a marked seasonal temperature variation, ranging from laze-inducing warmth to blistering humid warmth. Rain is also a constant feature in the climate of the Nesocratic Federation of Eunesia. On the average, rain will fall in three days in a week. During the monsoon season, which is the raining season, this can increase to almost every day in a week. In some cases on the outer islands, typhoon may happen in summer.

[top]Land Use

To the west of Port Chelseanna resided the Kountouras Fields- rich farmland dotted with family farms, orchards, and vineyards. It was essential for being a respectable member of the upper crust to own a small estate in Kountouras, even if they let the overseer do all the work. The Chelseannans take immense pride in their olive oil and wine, along with their spectacular citrus groves that ringed the foot of Mount Tuli. Like most Eunesians, they live heavily off of the sea as well, making use of nearly everything they catch.
Natural Resources
  • Fish and Sea Products (pearls, whale oil, etc.)
  • Agriculture (citrus fruits, wine/grapes, olives/olive oil)
