The area known as Clanea lies to the west of Arandor and doglegs to the northwest for about two hundred miles west of the fishing and trade city of Esk. Exactly where Clanea begins and Arandor ends is somewhat undefined. During the times of Bael Turath, most of present-day Clanea was formally part of the Arandor Principality. However, due to the remoteness of Blackport the region was mostly independent of the Duke of Arandor during the following turbulent times and, later, the rise of Nerath. Since then, the area has been occupied by both Tulris and Ios, and was a popular area for Ios to send slaving parties to. Hundreds of years of such instability has left the region underpopulated and disorganized.
Today, most Claneans make their living either herding animals on the hills or living off the bountiful ocean in the adjoining bay.
