General Info

Racial Presence: Elnins [Dominant], All other races are present in more or less equal amounts

Population Density: Fairly high. Palu'au Islands are considered the best resort location for people who don't want to travel all the way to Ealei or specifically want to tan themselves into leather on the pristine beaches.

Border Policies: Open. People come and go on vacation all the time. There is also a good chunk of wealthy individuals who spend their entire winters here because the Overwilds rarely appear in this region.

Notables: Tropical vacation islands run by fluffy elnins pretty much. The bordering Rainbow Reef is a popular place to dive and fish, and the very southern edge of the Deepruin Reef is actually pretty tame where it nears the shores of Palu'au. People looking for the adventure of ruin diving without the risk of... well, sea monsters... will dive near here. Who cares if the ruins are in shallow water and picked clean, it's always a thrill to imagine yourself a dashing explorer!

Major Cities

  • Islasera: About as gorgeous as a beach paradise city can be. Islasera is full of languid indulgence, where the daily grind consists of finding a spot to nap in the sun and wondering when you should get up to go swimming. Also umbrella drinks. Friggin umbrella drinks everywhere.

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!



Stuff to Keep in Mind

Tropical paradise getaway. xD

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.

Palu'au Islands' Eldertree

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 Palu'au Islands is a towering palm.

Examples will be here when available.

Sandy Beaches, Palm Trees, Tropical Flora

Sandy shores with palm trees and other tropical vegetation. Be careful of overlap with: Ahza (sand)!

General Features:

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.

Crystal Clear Ocean

Be careful of overlap with: Ealei! Both Palu'au Islands and Ealei have clear blue water, but only Palu'au has sandy beaches!

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.
