Many call this area the "breadbasket of Taelmoor", and for good reason. More than half of all food grown on the continent is from this relatively small area of the continent. Due to being a valley surrounded mostly by mountains, it gets near year-round sun, and the nearby water sources are more than enough to irrigate the land.
The area is still named after one of the original groups to settle in the area, the Corttosh family. Centuries later, their name has faded into the histories.
