Korel Island was the most westerly of the islands in the archipelago known as the Lands of Fist. It was bounded to the west by the Ocean of Storms and to the north by the Reacher's Ocean. The Pirate's Sea separated it from Fist Island to the northeast. To the south, lay Damos Bay and across the bay, the Empire of Jourilan. Along the eastern coast was the Crack Strait.
