Racial Presence: Sylvan [High] | Humans | Kyunru | Elnins
Population Density: Fairly populated. Faerindell is a beautiful area, but it is mostly inhabited by sylvans, who tend toward owning large chunks of land and not wanting to share. The good thing is that the sylvans commit nearly the entirety of their verdant land to farming and are not shy about exporting their robust crops to the rest of Eyre.
Border Policies: Open, mostly. Sylvans living in the countryside don't mind visitors, but dislike people trying to move onto land that they own (unless you want to work for them). Major cities or larger towns, however, welcome new inhabitants with little fuss.
Notables: Most of all open land in Faerindell is used for farming, and the harvests from these farms accounts for over half of Eyre's food production. The forests of Faerindell are fae-touched and bear a sense of peace and tranquility.
- Elenion: The capital city of Elenion is nestled right next to the eldertree of Faerindell, which has spread its influence to the surrounding forests. The lands around Elenion are in a perpetual state of floral explosion (a nightmare to those born with pollen allergies!). The trees are primarily pink in foliage (though there are always a few regular green leafed trees mixed in). Underneath the tree tops however, a species of symbiotic flowers is often found attached to the lower boughs. These groups of flowers, called faerie shrouds, bloom year-round in a riot of colors.

Inspiration Images Folder: [link]
NOTE The inspiration images are not going to be 100% accurate since well, these regions do not exist in the real world! A lot of the images will note what specifically the image is meant to be pointing to (a specific city, or nature feature, etc) so be sure to take note of what the images are named. It is possible that features that are small or in the background of the images may not be accurate to the region since it can be hard to find a perfect image for some regions, so take each image as a glimpse and not the full picture. You will need to read the region descriptions below and combine them with the inspiration images to get a full picture of the region!
Artist's note: In general Faerindell's buildings and landscape lean more toward "ye olde fairy tale"/traditional fantasy style.
Stuff to Keep in Mind
Idyllic, rustic, fairy tale fantasy.
Iconic Land Features / Feature Combinations:
These characteristics are very distinctive, and can easily indicate the surrounding region. Including just one of these features / feature combinations in your piece should be enough to pinpoint your desired region.
Each region has it's own distinct eldertree. These trees are colossal, stretching for miles into the air. They can usually be seen from most anywhere within a region assuming there's line of sight. Finding a way to feature the region's eldertree of your scene can help establish your intended setting pretty effectively!The eldertree that anchors Faerindell resembles a giant sakura tree.
These characteristics could potentially be harder to place if drawn by themselves. Please consider combining 2-3 of the following features together to help us quickly confirm your desired region. We've also noted where some features might have visual overlap with other regions.
Rolling Hills and Grasslands
Western Fantasy Small Towns and Villages
The Three Fs: Fauna, Flora and Food
These creatures and plants occur naturally only in specific regions of Eyre. There are also unique cuisines found in each region! This is optional but you can try including one or more of these in your piece to give it some extra flair.
