For the kingdom, and later republic, see Republic of Tal'Dorei.

Official map of Tal'Dorei, by Andrew Law.

Tal'Dorei is the name used by humans to refer to the entire continent on Exandria in which the Republic of Tal'Dorei rests, though this is purely a human conflation.[1] The Elvish name for the continent is Gwessar, meaning "Fields of Joy".[2]
