Velancthon: Name, Size, and Geography

Velancthon, or Velanqthon, was the name used by most natives of the continent discovered by Arquis Bolton to describe that land, which Bolton named "New Kerasah." The name Velancthon is known now to be derived from the ancient tongue of the Illinathi, who once maintained a great empire from Illinath in the north to the modern region of Danestone and the Bay of Taren.


It's size is vast, and it's exact measurements cannot be justly calculated by its inhabitants. In terms we can understand, it is smaller than North America, but not by much. It also maintains a similar shape with the North American continent, and very simalar weather patterns and geography. The winters in Velancthon northeast are more disposed to snow, and the southeastern climate is warm but not as humid.

Discovery

The continent was discovered by Arquis Bolton in 83 BFR. He led a contingent of seventy ships west to explore, charged by Prince Geran to find new trade routes and map the western seas. He named the continent "New Kerasa," after his homeland and the capital of the region now known as Krastegrid, and established a colony at the mouth of the Stoneblood River which his company named "Arquistone" in his honor.
