Bas-Lag Wiki

Rin Lor is one of many islands in the Swollen Ocean on Bas-Lag. During Bellis Coldwine's journey aboard the Terpsichoria, Johannes Tearfly mentions that, as with the other islands near it, Rin Lor has some folktales about it, but does not go into detail.


Ships travelling from New Crobuzon to the Salkrikaltor Cray Commonwealth pass it by. Salt is commonly spoken on the island, and Silas Fennec learned to speak it while after spending some time on the island.
