One of the more interesting areas in Peloria is Talastar, one of the great centers of Orlanthi culture. I’m defining Talastar broadly – including Lakrene, Anadiki, Brolia, and Skanthi as parts of it. There’s over 380k humans in that area, plus another 80k trolls in the Yolp Mountains.
There’s over 60k Orlanth cultists in Talastar, and, even more remarkable, over 8k Storm Bull cultists. That’s about half as many as in Prax! Ernalda here coexists with Dendara, Pelora (Oria), Dorasta, and with the local versions of Eiritha.
The Lunar religion is here too – there’s some 30k Lunar cultists (mostly Seven Mothers) in Talastar, the majority of them in the area called Lakrene, which is under heavy Lunar influence and pressure.
Orlanth and Storm Bull are tolerated in Talastar entirely because of Dorastor – home to more than 100k intelligent Chaos creatures. Although the Red Emperor maintains communications with Ralzakark, the demon-ruler of Dorastor, there are still scores of thousands of brooks and over Chaos creatures that barely acknowledge his authority. The Orlanth and Storm Bull cults – both passionate Chaos haters – make a useful buffer against the horrors with Dorastor.
Now that 80k trolls sounds impressive, but remember that only about 16k are adult dark trolls. Some 50k are trollkin. That being said, it does mean that there are more than a thousand Zorak Zoran cultists right on the edge of the Lunar Empire!
Sartar (including the Dragonewt Wilds and the Far Place) is about 7200 square miles or 18,900 square kilometres. With about 190,000 inhabitants (including dragonewts, but not dwarves or others).
The area described covers about 64,000 square kilometres, or about three and a third times the size of Sartar and the Far Place. That doesn’t include Dorastor or the Yolp Mountains. So twice the population in three and have times the size – that’s an average of 6 people per square kilometre. Given that includes everything from more densely populated Lakrene (about 15 people per square kilometre), to Brolia and Anadiki, which have less than 5 people per square kilometre.
