Port of Cos
Cos is a military dictatorship, thus the continued rulership of the Ubar, Lurius of Jad. His power is vested in the army who maintain all policing duties throughout the island and who control many parts of the island through garrisons located in strategically placed fortresses. Most families of high nobility maintain their own private armies, paying a tribute to do so. These private armies are sworn to the service of Cos and the regular army in any time of crisis.

To the west of the massive Gorean continent lies Thassa, a vast ocean. No one knows where Thassa ends or what might lie beyond it. The "World's End" is a term used to describe the area of Thassa that lies beyond the islands of Cos and Tyros. There are only a few small, close islands west of Cos and Tyros. It is a legendary place as no one has ever sailed there and returned. Some say that Thassa is endless. Others claim that it is protected by clashing rocks, monsters, and by mountains that can pull the nails from ships. Others say the end of the world is sheer and a ship might plunge over the edge, falling for days through emptiness, until fierce winds break it apart. In the maelstroms southwest of Tyros, shattered ship planking is sometimes found which adds to the mystery.

Cos is a mountainous island, even loftier than Tyros, though it does have some level fields to the west. There are many terraced areas of Cos and Ta grapes are grown on many of them. Like Tyros, family is very important on Cos. The Cosian color is blue. There are a series of northern islands near Cos. They are numerous but small, extending in an archipelago like a scimitar northeastward from Cos. The islands are not united and their governments are usually no more than a village council. They commonly do possess any sea vessels larger than clinker-built skiffs and coasters.

The famed Ta grape, is usually associated with Cos though it is also grown in various locales in similar latitudes. Some of these grapes can get as large as a small plum. If eaten, they may often be peeled. They can also be used to make Ta wine. There is no description in the books as to the color or taste of Ta wine. It is likely that like many other wines, it comes in a variety of colors and tastes. The best Ta wines probably come from Cos though some other areas make good Ta wine as well.
