Overview

Glissom-very-small.jpg
Status Kingdom
Location Bordered by the Kingdom of Eltrandor and the Duchy of Brandenburg

The Kingdom of Glissom is at the very northern end of the Bay of Felice and bordered by the Kingdom of Eltrandor and the Duchy of Brandenburg.

Glissom is a small, rich and sometimes important Kingdom that often acts as a buffer state between Eltrandor and Brandenburg. From time to time the King plays one side off against the other in a skilful way, but this is not common knowledge. The Kingdom of Glissom also enjoys the support of a large group of Elves who live the Siren Woods to the north.

It is also important because of the River Shadowspin. Glissom is located at the river delta, and the river is the only navigable waterway from the sea, up into the highlands of the Duchy of Drakenburg, and Cauldersfield.
