According to 'The Atlas'; it seems to stretch over about 25 degrees of latitude and about 15 degrees of longitude (say 500 miles by 250 [a degree of latitude doesn't HAVE to match a degree of longitude in mileage on the ground]).

This was set exactly at some stage, was it not? The discussions were held at the same time as Jaxom went to rescue Sharra, who was virtually being held prisoner at Southern by Toric. Between two rivers, and as far inland as the distant mountains? And Toric was furious later on when he realised just how large the southern continent was.
I'm sure Toric was going to come to a bad end, one of those lose ends we did not see tied up.

I always thought Torric should have gotten caught up in something he could not get out of.
