Ethyrion

From The Regnum Animale by Bishop Vitellus of Oaken:

East of Leomundia, just south of Mor Van Dor, is the isle of Ethyrion.  Here dwell a majority of Avians, who have built many cities of gleaming spires and towering eyries.  Though this is a magnificent place full of wonders, it is said by the Avians to be a mere shadow of their homeland south of the Aquilan Sea.  Ethyrion is ruled by master wizards, whose pride and perhaps arrogance have led them to explore the deeper mysteries of the magical arts, for good or for ill.  Our Avian brethren have assured us that pride is indeed rampant in Ethyrion.  On this isle, archmages are not bound by the strictures of the High Aquiliarian Chantries, and so they consider nothing to be forbidden.  While the Undying Flame is worshiped and Sathia is held in especially high honor, there are many mystery cults devoted to strange gods, and devilish pacts are not uncommon.  Pray for these, our misguided allies, who seem to think light can have communion with darkness. – Benevolus
