Northern Sothoryos and the location of Talon

Talon is one of the Basilisk Isles, which are off the northern coast of Sothoryos.[1] It is a claw-shaped island north of the Isle of Tears.[2] Corsairs have fortified Talon's honeycombed caverns. Pirates gather to trade at Barter Beach and slaves are sold or ransomed at the island's markets.[2]

History

Some of Nymeria's ten thousand ships were attacked by corsairs from Talon. Nymeria then refused the corsairs' offer to allow the Rhoynar to settle upon the Isle of Toads, since the corsairs insisted the Rhoynar give up their boats and send each corsair king thirty virgin girls and pretty boys per year, but Nymeria refused.[3]
