In 1482, a group of Explores settled on the east coast of the island. They made a settlement and named it Pierra, after their boat, Pierra IV. They named the island Quextin, after their leader, Charles Quextin.
Quextin's highest point is Mount. Verzin, 14,923 feet. The lowest point is the Trivinnia Coast, 76 feet below sea level. There are three mountain ranges on Quextin; the Omanu Mountain, the Golersta Mountains, and the New Gilberto Mountains. All of the ranges get snow in the winter, with the highest peaks of the New Gilberto Mountains keeping a snow pack year-round. Eastern, central, south-central, and north-central Quextin are mainly open plains, with scattered hills and the outskirts of the three mountain ranges. Lake Hinj is the largest and only lake on Quextin, and has a depth of 538 feet. Lake Hinj is unqiue because there are no rivers connecting it to the ocean, as it is a completely groundwater lake formed by a sinkhole in the 1200's. The Omanu Peninsula is a low-lying swampy area, with a few areas of plains. Western Quextin is also mainly low-lying, swampy area. To the north-east of Trivinnia is a rift where the island is sinking and being pulled apart at a rate of 2 centimeters a year. This leads to frequent earthquakes in and around Trivinnia and Golersta. Earthquakes are uncommon elsewhere on the island, though not unheard of.
Quextin's east coast frequently gets hit by severe thunderstorms and major tropical cyclones. Cyclone Christopher in 2008 leveled a portion of New Gilberto State. The most significant tornado also occurred in Pierra in 2012. The Gilberto Mountains frequently see snow in the winter. The Golersta and Omanu Mountains also see some snow in Winter, but not as much as in the Gilberto Mountains. Southern Quextin sees some rain, but is mainly very humid and farm lands. Northern Quextin sometimes sees snow, but not in great amounts. The temperature can range from triple digits in the summer to below zero in the winter. Western Quextin is usually dry in the Winter, but sees rain quite often in the Winter.
