NorthReach is a newly discovered landmass some 20 days sailing north-northwest of the Imperium. It was discovered by the intrepid Halfling sailor and explorer Heron Reddfoot 22 years ago. In that time, it has remained largely unexplored and is considered a land of danger, adventure and opportunity. The bustling port of Beach Head is the only official settlement and thus constitutes the capitol of NorthReach Colony. Beach Head and the surrounding area are closely guarded by a detachment of the 14th Legion.
No one is entirely sure how large NorthReach is. Several sea expeditions have been launched to map the coastline, but all have had to return after making only moderate progress. Land expeditions have fared no better all of them running afoul of dangerous local fauna and turning back. However, through examination of the horizon, attempts at scrying and observations of weather patterns, sages speculate that the landmass may be very large indeed. Early guesses were that it was simply a large island, but the prevailing wisdom now is that the currently obvervable land may in fact only be a small part of a very large mass, perhaps even a whole new continent.
