Helopsy is a medium-sized island in The Race, 200 miles east of Luwedne. Its name means “island” in the Gartha language and is the component of many other islands around the Three Rivers. Helopsy is about 50 miles wide and 30 miles north-to-south at its greatest extents. The north shore is forested in jungle whereas the south side, buffeted by constant storms and wind, has more heath-like cover. It is not known whether any inhabitants live there, but due to the difficulties faced in sailing to the island to begin with, it is considered unlikely.
