Devonshire is one of the provinces that King Almeric of Westin annexed during the Winter-Range war. Four other provinces were also annexed: Elnoth, Kurs-shire, Eppendor, and Ipolsi.
Devonshire is located in the foothills of the Winter-Range, just below the first plateau. The province contains large forests of prime timber, though large areas have been cleared for firewood and farmland. Devonshire is watered by Kord’s River, which plunges a fifth of a league from Kurs-shire to the hills below. The river is navigable to small ships.
Fordentree is a reasonably large town located near the center of Devonshire. It straddles the last navigable stretch of Kord’s River (or the first navigable stretch, depending on where you hail from) , and serves as a shipping center for the region. Kord’s River is often called the Mudwater.
