This is a Class B (silver star) article.

Geographic features of the world of Eamon have been described by various authors in a host of Eamon adventures. Due to the diversity of contributors to the Eamon library, descriptions are not always consistent, and a majority of features appear only in single adventures. This page lists geographic features of Eamon that have appeared in, or been described in, published sources.

Unless otherwise specified, distances and directions are from Evenhold.

Continents

The world of Eamon has several large continental landmasses. Journey Across the Muerte Sea identifies three by name: Grancasa (where the Main Hall stands), Republica, and Malcarel, which are separated by a body of water known as the Muerte Sea. The Museum of Unnatural History describes four: a horseshoe-shaped continent, an hourglass-shaped continent, a "supertropical" continent, and the continent of the Main Hall.

Elemental Apocalypse sees the adventurer shipwrecked on an uncharted northern continent which he dubs "Northland".
