Oranus is the smaller island to the west of Ilthium itself. It has never been inhabited successfully by the Ilth. This is mainly due to the well established Hobgoblin population found in the hilly north of Oranus. Even though they are well dug in the north they range widely across the island. Oranus is also noted to be a place of exile for aberrant users of magic. The Council of the Magi banish the particularly dangerous or abhorrent here due to the island itself being a flow sink. Those sent here do not last for long without their skills in magic against those who already live there.
