Seven Saints of Talis
The Iron Holds cover a large expanse of the eastern coastlands of the continent, as well as a large chain of islands in the eastern sea. As its name implies, this territory is under the control of the Iron Priests, a Mechanicus Cult.
The Iron Holds found on the continental landmass were, formerly, part of the nation of Thracia. The Iron Priests came to take possession of these regions during their blitz-attack some 50 years ago. These regions are, primarily, arable farmlands, which the Iron Priests use as a source of food, bio-fuels, and indentured servants. With these holdings, the Iron Priests have become one of the wealthiest organizations on Talis, selling food, fuel and vehicles to a number of factions throughout the Wastelands.
The island holds of the Iron Priests are rich in minerals, ore and promethium deposits, which the Iron Priests exploit to their fullest. The largest isle, called the Iron Isle by most (though it is marked on maps as Mount Blackhall or Blackhall Island) is the headquarters of the Iron Priests, and the site of a major, pre-war Mechanicus holding.
