Places & Setting


The map is made by Jonathan Happ, who is on my thank you page.

Country

Name: The Xions Islands
Rule: Former emperor, but now democracy and only the emperor’s places left, but have a powerful mafia
Type: Nature & modern
People: Very kind and is very helpful, but still a bit scared of the local mafia.
Religion: Believes in 5 dragons which each cover an element (water, fire, metal, wood, earth and void) and protects the country. No one knows the dragons are real, but they have an island of the gods where 5 temples has been build by unknown which make some people believe are the gods themselves. Each temple has its own 1 times a year it is allowed to visit if you know where they are and can handle the trip. The army makes sure that no one travels or get too close to the island when they are not meant to be. They have temples around on the main island too, but not as big and powerful as those on the island of the gods. There is also a 6th temple, but it has been destroyed by the gods as it housed the void dragon who tried to get the power long ago. The remaining gods who see themselves as equal, even that the earth god is their true ruler.

Island 2 (The center island)
