Fellmoor Swamp was a former territory in 'Souls; however, the 2016 meteor strike destroyed the land. What was left of the swamp is now a part of the Broken Occident.

1.  Description

Fellmoor Swamp wasn't always a swamp -- formerly a fertile marshland with many streams and small lakes, human levies protected the area from becoming completely sodden. However, after the humans' demise, the neglected levies on the coast near Yarmouth eroded and fell apart, unleashing floodwaters that stayed in the area for months at a time. For miles in the south and southwestern portions of the territory, the mud is thick and deep, with fleeting pockets of water large enough but too temporary to be called ponds or lakes. As with much of this southeastern coast of Nova Scotia, the fog is ever-present and low-hanging.

A variety of birds still populate the area, but Fellmoor Swamp tends not to appeal to rabbits and squirrels, as well as other burrow or tree dependent animals. Large prey animals such as moose and caribou may wander in seasonally. The shrub swamp area has little in the way of tall trees; the waterlogged soil does not allow their growth. On the contrary, though, Swamp Cabbage and Hazel Alder, along with Great Rhodendron, grow abundantly in this area, thriving in the marshy wetlands.

St. Mary's Bay

A sub-basin of the Bay of Fundy, the bay's southeastern shore is formed by the Fellmoor Swamp and Beast's Grin Peninsula, while its northwestern shore is formed by the southerly half of the Digby Neck (separated from the northern half by the Gut). The tides in this basin are incredibly high, spanning 50 feet (16 metres) in places. The mainland side of the bay houses several hunkering villages in varying sizes. The Neck was not populated in the time of humanity -- it is only a thin strip of beach in some places, no wider than an average-sized home.

The rich and varied flora and fauna of the bays are a result of this tidal action. Regularly exposed swaths of ocean floor create a special environment for the species that inhabit these regions. Tidal action also causes a stirring up of the water, allowing whales to feed easily on agitated plankton.

Lake Milo

This freshwater lake is just on the outskirts of Yarmouth; it features a small, rotting boathouse with a few short docks in equal disrepair. Most of the boats were damaged and destroyed, and the store's basement has flooded out completely, retaining at least a foot of water at all times. The Lake itself is about 40 feet (12 meters) deep in the middle and about 150 ft (46 meters) wide.

Clearwater Peninsula

The southernmost portion of Fellmoor Swamp consists of a peninsula of land. Situated just to the west of Yarmouth, the peninsula was very sparsely populated with only a few sprawling, overlarge houses in the Victorian style. These crumbling homes are the last legacy of the ship captains in the seafaring age for this part of Nova Scotia. They stand forlornly in the mist and fog -- for Clearwater Peninsula's air is anything but clear. As with much of the surrounding area, the land is plagued with fogs year-round, and actually seeing the bay or Yarmouth from much of the peninsula requires exceptional luck.
