Duchy of the Delta Crescent
changeling-the-dreaming Logo

The Duchy of the Delta Crescent includes the entire state of Louisiana, including her most colorful city, [New Orleans]. This trans-Mississippi southern duchy sits just across the river from Magnolia's Home on the east; to the west, the Sabine River, and Toledo Bend Reservoir form a border with the Kingdom of the Burning Sun. The Duchy of the Ozarks (Arkansas) lies along "the Crescent's" northern edge, while its southern coast fronts on the Gulf of Mexico and provides the setting for the Mississippi River's grand plunge into the sea. Boasting a rich French heritage in addition to later Spanish and English influences, the Crescent's changelings form some of the most culturally diverse members of the Kingdom of Willows.

Physical Geography

While most Kithain think of "bayou country" in connection with the Duchy of the Delta Crescent, the landscape of this southern duchy contains considerable diversity. To the north, near Natchitoches, lie great stands of pines and loblolly. Small groups of Nunnehi remain within this forested region. The duchy's center consists of fertile farmlands watered by the Cane River, ideal for the plantation society that evolved there before the Civil War. Many sidhe and a few trolls claim freeholds in this part of the Crescent. In the South, however, the bayou reigns supreme — great marshlands drenched in a multitude of lakes and trans-sected by Inter-coastal Waterway. The many hidden places of the bayou country hold secret sluagh freeholds along with Nunnehi enclaves.
