Chapter 23 - The East

At this point, I can link in the Map of the East in Brokedown Palace.

I scaled this map by using the following passage:

[From Fenario] we have a hundred leagues of plains before we come to the foothills that bring us to the pass the River has carved, and from there we must find our way to the great waterfall that is its source ... they emerged from the Wandering Forest ... after riding to it for four days and through it for another three. (Brokedown Palace, Chapter 1)

It appears to me that the Wandering Forest occupies the foothills of the mountains of Faerie (notice the small hills just to the north of the River), so I scaled the map such that the distance from Fenario to the edge of the Wandering Forest is 300 miles.

The East, Scaled
The East, Scaled

Furthermore, the Eastern Mountains (labeled Mountains of Faerie on the map) have a change in direction around Lake Fenarr:

Change of Direction in the Mountains of Faerie
Change of Direction in the Mountains of Faerie

I drew a line 42 degrees west of due south from Deathgate Falls, and another line 10 degrees east of due north from South Mountain, and located this change of direction where those two lines met.

As to what precisely is located at this bend, my guess is that Mount Kieron is the mountain (well, it looks more like a hill on Kathy's map) to the immediate west of the Lake--on the other side of the Laughing River--for reasons I'll get into later.

When the map of the East is overlaid onto my map at this point, it appears Deathgate Falls should just be visible on Kathy's map:

East Meets West
East Meets West

I went over this map and transferred all labeled locations to my map. There were a few labels that do not appear to be associated with a specific location. One of those, Mordfal, is actually a County:

the Countess of Mordfal ... what could this Countess from the East Grimwall Mountains know (Brokedown Palace, Chapter 6)
