Could we add this Island to Legonia? It would be a moving Island which comes near Legonia every few years. However, it's "orbit" is irregular and so sometimes it is South, sometimes North. On it live two races, Humans and a race of beings who tend to be wizard-like.

a moving Island ?
seems interesting, very interesting, I would like to have this in Legonia
but I don't have the exact same idea;

The island may not be too large, a small island would fit better,
outgoing from my assumption that smaller objects seem to move faster than larger objects.
However, on a small island I can't really imagine there would live a lot of people.
This is what I have in mind;
A wise being (human or other race) lives on the island, he might have a house (tower / cave / cabin / you name it), along with him there are some other beings (friends/ servants / extraordinary pets :p ,whatever) living with him...
or something like that

Let's see what Christian thinks...

btw, that reminds me a bit of Avatar, the last airbender, where the moving island is actually a giant creature

Yeah, I've heard of that sort of island. It would make sense but I think if the island was large enough to hold one race at least it would be perfect.

by one race, do you mean an entirely new race or a group seperated from a main land race (ages earlier for example) ?

Well it would be similar to a race but split along the evolutionary path so it's different in some ways.

A moving island? Like LOST? DO you mean something supernatural, magical, cursed or a natural thing (like the creature-idea)? Depends really on the size. If it's as big as Tronorma, then ok. But nothing too big.

I think it's a bit bigger (maybe 5 times as long 4 times as wide). I've never watched LOST.

Oh yeah, I also forgot, the cause would be Natural but it's movement is powered by magic (unless you don't want that).

Sebeus has a good idea when he starts thinking, Boba you as well have a good imagination for being able to think of original stuff. I was thinking about the landscape of the island. Would it be a desert or grass-land and I was thinknig underneath it could have a rather large stalactite-type spike comeing out of it as though it was pulled from the ground by the owner.

If a wizard had lived there then the wizard could have pulled the ground out of the land to make a safe heaven for themselves could they not? Just thinking out loud.

Yes that is what i meant.Some creature or race has felt threatened by something on the land like war or such and has cast the land form the ground to protect its self. That was what i was thinknig when i typed my previous comment.

For the landscape it should have quite a variety if there are beings living on it, I guess that depends on what kind of beings though,

I like that idea of the island being pulled out once, lots of underwater caves with I-don't-know-what living in them

Exactly how many races were you intending? Because ,let's say a wizard did pull the land out of the ground, the wizard would have made sure there was enough space for all and I wouldent recomend anymore then five races as it shall need to stay a small island.

Around the bottom, to maximise room, there could until about halfway down the spike be a bubble of water with a hybrid race of human and fish men?

I'd prefer that it separated through natural cuases (or a cause which is natural but could have happened for an unnatural reason). It's landscape (except the caves) should not be set because it "orbits" Legonia in an odd orbit meaning that it gets close to a different place every so often. It shouldn't have a lot of animals, although definitely there are a lot of sea creatures around it. It should house a population of a humanoid race (nothing large) that split off from their original stock and gained minor magical powers. The stronger ones power the island's movement, although they cannot control where it ends up.

Thats why i asked what the terrain was like. I would suggest that there is a tower at the center of all controlling everything then as you move out towards the edge the land gets rougher and caves and fissure appear until the land ends? Is that like what you were thinknig of boba?

Or you could intend it to be a few small caves but inside the rock is one large room in which the caves split of into? Like a few passage ways leading to one vital cave?

Read what I wrote above. There is no tower controlling anything as the lands aren't very large. However, the village of the people does have a large structure (though it's not a tower) so I guess that's valid (sort of). The terrain, as I said above, changes as the island moves (because of temperature differences).

Well I guess that you could have a magical treasure underneath but the Island stays alive on it's own through natural causes. Some caves DO lead to underwater caves, some simply lead to tunnels under the surface but not deep enough to be underwater. There is a cave of interest known as the glass cave where the walls are made out of diamond-like crystals and it sticks out of the bottom of the island so they can observe sea life from it

It is in the ocean. It's location constantly changes (it's movement is powered by it's inhabitants (who have small magical powers) but is not controlled by them so it ends up in a different place every time).

What if a wizard used the spire to send bubble's in diffeent direction to make it move. Also, the island would probably have to be a dormant volcano, because then there would be ash for plant's to grow in and the volcanic rock pumice floats, so it would make sense. the inside of the volcano could be the caves, and the slopes could host crops and villagers. Also, the magma tube could be the jagged spire. Since most volcano's are fairly small, the island would only have to be a mile wide, and it could be a short volcano, so that the island is not oddly shaped. i think that fits everything that you guys wanted.

For the background. Make it part of the former old empire. That's a human kingdom which ruled the southern parts of the eastern continent in ancient time. Now big parts of its former lanscape are flooded by oceans. The island Mojache is also part of what left. Your island could have broken from the land or escaped from a war. The idea behind would be the wrath of a god which destroyed the old empire. Your people are survivors of these territories. Good idea?

For the background. Make it part of the former old empire. That's a human kingdom which ruled the southern parts of the eastern continent in ancient time. Now big parts of its former lanscape are flooded by oceans. The island Mojache is also part of what left. Your island could have broken from the land or escaped from a war. The idea behind would be the wrath of a god which destroyed the old empire. Your people are survivors of these territories. Good idea?


Yes great idea! So the race on the island is very similar to humans but while physically weaker they have magic and are more intelligent.

yeah espeaclly if there is a treasure at the middle the island could be like noahs ark. The god.s chose a few perfect races and spared them from war and destruction?

No this race is an offspring of humans who are far from perfect. They simply were separated and evolved over the course of a few millennia.

Final Island Overview: The Island, known as the Island of Ystel, is a moving island. It moves in an irregular "orbit" around the island of Legonia. The island features a few landmarks, such as underwater caves, in particular one made of diamond which is great for viewing sea life through the walls). There are also above ground caves. The land constantly changes, so there are icy frostlands and deserts at different times. On the left side of the island is a village, sustaining a humanoid race who's buildings tend to be more artistic than useful. They are more intelligent than humans but less powerful. They also are better at magic (if they have any spellbooks) and have some natural magic of their own.

As an intelligent race, if they near the coast they will set out on boats and halt the island so that they can barter with the locals for goods hard to get or impossible to get on the island. They fish because that's the most common type of food but they also eat a good amount of wild plants and meat is a delicacy only eaten on festivals and rare occasions.

The buildings are on land and they are made of a mixture of stone, wood, and other materials. They don't farm since the irregular temperatures make the ground infertile for crops (though certain types of vegetation do grow there). They do fish but their metabolisms are slower as they do not have as much need for strength so they don't eat as much. They only rarely hunt since the small population of land animals could easily be completely destroyed if they hunted more than a few of the same species (for example, at any given time there would be maybe 15 foxes on the island).

Cool. One thing I must say about the island overview that you made is that maybe the island should stay near the southern part of Legonia and that it should always have a subtropical climate, just so that it is easier to build things for. I think it would be weird to build desert and snowy mocs for one really small island. Just a suggestion.

Birds are not hunted and eaten since they are sacred to the villagers, representing their island's movement through the ocean (to them). They are also a rarity but not as rare as land animals. There is a special species of bird found on the island known as the Ice Bird. Every 4 1/2 years the Icebird flies around the island, leaving behind ice in it's wake. The bird is a deity to the villagers. It does not fly over the village or important places to the villages and never harms them. It sometimes will bring odd gifts and then at the end of it's flight it flies back into the caves. It then dissapears for another 4 1/2 years.

I think that the villagers should have different heads (they can be different colors) but the clothing should look like tunics and similar clothing. The village leaders should wear more royal looking garbs. I think the beings on the island with the most magical power should have transparent heads as proof of their power.

It is wierd but it makes for a very interesting island. It is meant to be an island where many different kinds of things can be built but at the same time is limited in many ways.

Sure. Instead of making it legendary, why don't you make it a deity for the tsinka to worship? That way, you could make it a statue and you wouldn't need Christian's consent.

As long as it's not known to the western continent you can create own legends. A Mythology for the east is not finished so i can include new things still. But it reminds me on another thing:
My asian island Peng Cheng. "Peng" is also a mythological bird in chinese cultures who created the world or so. Maybe the island was created or named after a legendary bird creature serving the big something. If so, the same myth could refer to a Goru also. Keep in mind, if there's a special Goru, th Tsinka culture would know about it in some way.
