[PnP] The Goiden Project

For regions I'm thinking "The Turlach Mountains" for the name of the range
(still have to find and name the highest peak, perhaps "Siann Monag" -- the
high peak is somewhat flatish and perhaps a sacred meeting point for the
tribes).  For the hills on the northwest shoreline "Hills of Vassi" and "The
Donnag Highlands" for the hills just south of that (next to the Armagh).
The highlands look to have a steeper eastern side ("Oghan Bluffs") and
higher western part ("Diach's Rise").

The Ulail forests could be "Faiolail Woodlands" and the other larger forest
the  "Faitheadh Forest"  (implied: "Fai-" is a goidenese prefix meaning

The easternmost hills could be the "Laidh Hills", with a minor peak in there
(that I can see on the texture) "Camac's Ridge"  (possible site).  The hills
in the swamp could be "The Earmagh Highlands", with the southmost hills
being "The Caoich Hills".  A visible ridgeline seems to be there, "Adh Mac
Cuir's Wall" (another site?).

For the swamp we could have "The Olaireann Fens" in the portion between the
rivermouths, and "The Olaireann Murks" for the hazy, misty depths of the
swamps that brush up against the rugged mountains.
