1.  Description

Grindstone Island is an archipelago consisting of four unnamed islands. A quiet, lonely place, the island chain homes many sea birds and provides a suitable place for harp seals to raise their pups, but is otherwise inhabited by few other creatures. With its flat and somewhat barren landscape, outlined by stretches of sandy beaches and eroding sandstone, Grindstone Island may seem fairly useless. However, more adventurous Luperci may find use of the rock salt that can be mined here.

2.  Waterways

2.1  Gulf of Saint Lawrence

The Gulf of Saint Lawrence is a massive gulf to the north, outlet to the Great Lakes to the far south. The gulf borders Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick areas such as Isthmus of Chignecto, and the Cape Breton Peninsula. Only a small part of the Gulf occurs within the playable game areas. Frozen water and ice floes are common in winter; cold water in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence helps to make the temperature of mainland Canada territories and Prince Edward Island consistently colder than much of southern Nova Scotia.
