Chapter 15 - Other Missing Locations

Aelma

She used silver that came all the way from Aelma, which is a city on the Chareq River near some mountains called Daeld, which is where the silver was found in the ground. (Tiassa, The Silver Tiassa)

Baritt's Valley

Presumably either near Adrilankha (where Baritt lived), near his tomb (which is near the Wall in the Eastern Mountains), or possibly some ancestral Baritt home.

[Kragar] poured each of us a glass of Baritt's Valley white. (Jhereg, Chapter 14)

Baritt had lived in a square, grey stone building on the outskirts of Adrilankha, in the hills to the west. (Dragon, Chapter 2)

Before me stretched gentle, green hills; behind rose the cliff called the Wall, with the plain flat monument to Baritt, his "tomb" standing up before it; and around me were the Eastern Mountains (Dragon, Chapter 11)

Berrin's Creek

the icicles that hang from Dynnep's Tower at midwinter ... the gentle flow of Berrin's Creek; to the roar of the ocean in the Straits of Kurloc (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 6)

Breaking River

like the floodwaters of the swollen Breaking River in spring (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 18)

Briartown

The Briartown affair ... Eastmanswatch can move ... four hundred miles in a day and a night (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 10)

Brickerstown

the retreat from Watcher's Lake [to] reach the safety of ... Brickerstown (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 2)

The Canthrip

From Castle Black.

He caused black marble and obsidian to be imported from the far north, white marble ... to be sent from the near north, silver from the Canthrip, brass and good steel from the forges and foundries of Tirenga to the east, glass from the south, and teak from Tree-by-the-Sea in the far northwest (this last being sent by ship to Adrilankha before coming overland, as it was still impossible to pass through the heartland owing to Kana's continuing influence) (The Lord of Castle Black, Chapter 65)

Not in the far north, near north, east, south or far northwest. My guess is that it's to the west, but how far, I do not know.

Chareq River

She used silver that came all the way from Aelma, which is a city on the Chareq River near some mountains called Daeld, which is where the silver was found in the ground. (Tiassa, The Silver Tiassa)

Cloverhill

Count of Cloverhill (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 8)

Cobbletown

Villsni of Cobbletown (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 25)

Cook's Bluff

Cook's Bluff ... Gevlin Pass (Tiassa, Special Tasks 4)

Daeld

She used silver that came all the way from Aelma, which is a city on the Chareq River near some mountains called Daeld, which is where the silver was found in the ground. (Tiassa, The Silver Tiassa)

Dynnep's Tower

the icicles that hang from Dynnep's Tower at midwinter ... the gentle flow of Berrin's Creek; to the roar of the ocean in the Straits of Kurloc (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 6)

Eprish

a not-unpopular wine, grown and bottled in the Eprish region. (Tiassa, Special Tasks 3)

Gevlin Pass

Cook's Bluff ... Gevlin Pass (Tiassa, Special Tasks 4)

Greenbough

There are places, such as Moot County in Greenbough, where, in one town .... while five leagues away, in the next town (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 8)

Guinchen

takes him to Guinchen, where the girls are so pretty, or to the Sorannah, where they are so charming (The Lord of Castle Black, Chapter 57)

Not in the Sorannah.

Havenwood

Presumably within the duchy of Hightower.

Duke Highwater ... his youngest son, the Marquis of Havenwood (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 25)

Hightower

Duke Highwater ... his youngest son, the Marquis of Havenwood (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 25)

Holcomb

the pirates of Elde Island would have utterly prevented our trade with Greenaere, Holcomb, and Landsight (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 1)

That would appear to put it either south, southwest or west of the Empire.

Hondra

met a Dragonlord on the narrows of Hondra (The Desecrator)

I know of no place in the Empire that could be called a narrows.

The Island Dutchies

she finally caught a ship to one of the island duchies (Taltos, Chapter 12)

Since they're dutchies, they're presumably part of the Empire, but I am unaware of any portion of the Empire that is not part of the mainland.

Kaluma

Baroness of Kaluma (The Phoenix Guards, CAST)

Straits of Kurloc

the icicles that hang from Dynnep's Tower at midwinter ... the gentle flow of Berrin's Creek; to the roar of the ocean in the Straits of Kurloc (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 6)

The only place in the Empire that I might describe as a strait is the channel between Elde Island and the mainland.

Libedu

as clear as the water of Libedu. (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 24)

Landrok Valley

Baron Byrna of Landrok Valley (Tiassa, Tag)

Lockhead

He is being questioned about the events that occurred in Tirma, in the northwest, but there's no indication whether he resided in the northwest as well, or simply traveled there with his unit.

State your city of residence / Lockhead (Iorich, Chapter 7)

Moot County

There are places, such as Moot County in Greenbough, where, in one town .... while five leagues away, in the next town (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 8)

Shortrest

[Vlad's knife] was a wicked thing that I'd found in Shortrest, near Tabo. (Iorich, Chapter 14)

[Vlad's knife] was a wicked thing that I'd found in Shortrest, near Tabo. (Iorich, Chapter 14)

Tanvir

I went to a place called Tanvir where it was just spring and there were flowers in all the colors there are. (Tiassa, The Silver Tiassa)

Threefalls River

make it clear as the Threefalls River (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 11)

Threewalls

Presumably near the Twicetied Hills

a Phoenix, a certain Duke of Threewalls ... Has he a sister, who is Illista, Marchioness of the Twicetied Hills? (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 16)

Tildhome

Khaavren had discovered [Borteliff] while on a mission in the duchy of Tildhome, where the Teckla had been employed as a procurator for a textile manufacturer. (Tiassa, Special Tasks 3)

Traveling Wood

it is as easy ... as it is to find acorns in the Traveling Wood. (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 16)

Presumably near the duchy of Threewalls

a Phoenix, a certain Duke of Threewalls ... Has he a sister, who is Illista, Marchioness of the Twicetied Hills? (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 16)

Twindle River

the peculiar smelters that fill some of the towns along the Twindle River with their stenches (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 28)

Most mining in the Empire appears to take place in the Southeast (Collier Hills), North (Holdfree Mines) and Northwest (Kanefthali Mountains).

Watcher's Lake

the retreat from Watcher's Lake [to] reach the safety of ... Brickerstown (Five Hundred Years After, Chapter 2)

Windhome

the Marquis of Windhome (The Phoenix Guards, PREFACE)

Yellow River

the smaller species of wildlife that dwell along the Yellow River (The Phoenix Guards, Chapter 12)

Yevetna Falls

She gave me [a psiprint] of Yevetna Falls that's so good you can almost get wet looking at it. (Tiassa, The Silver Tiassa)

Mount Zerika

Easterners were falling like ash from Mount Zerika. (Teckla, Chapter 8)

Volcanic, so possibly part of the Ash Mountains?
