The area in which Abibon-Gora is found

The Barony of Abibon-Gora was a Third Era political entity that rested on the western coast of Hammerfell, in the Iliac Bay region. It shared borders with Kairou to the north and the Alik'r Desert to the east. Redguards predominated in the region, with Julianos as the favorite deity. The capital city was the city of Abibon-gora, and the locality was protected by the Knights of the Wheel.

After Redguards moved into the area, the local Sload found that their methods of criminal justice provided a good source of material for experiments in necromancy. Despite efforts from the Redguards to rid themselves of the Sload, reports of them surviving as far north as Abibon-Gora lasted into the Third Era.[1]

The people of the region celebrated a holiday called "Drigh R'Zimb" on the 1st of Mid Year, a festival held in honor of the sun. No other Redguards worship the sun on this day, so scholars have suggested that the holiday might be a direct translation of older Redguard festivals from before their migration to Tamriel from Yokuda.

All this changed after the Warp in the West: the barony disappeared to become part of a greatly-enlarged Sentinel.[1][2]
