Snelandia reigns here

At the far west of the continent lies the surprisingly-warmer, thicker climate where the ___ Dynasty rests. While the warmer climate of the massive continent is noticeable, it is not enough to foster the lush greenery that the western dynasty sports: and that is why the dynasty acts as a greenhouse.

Surrounded by a large dome that keeps out the harsh winds, ___ Dynasty maintains an almost consistent spring and summer throughout the year; a contrast to the east. The humidity is born from the sun's constant heating of the glass above the settlement. The people of Western Snelandia are excellent curators of exotic creatures and plants alike, and are known for their animal symbioticism.

"I came from the East. I do not miss the winter, however; far from it. If I never go back, there will not be a single regret." — Mauk, Former Yuukon Inhabitant.

Snelandia reigns here

A beautiful traditional work of art, Hisheng is surrounded by Sakurai trees that are seemingly always in bloom. This is where the Emperor/Empress dwell with their most trusted guards and samurai. Similar to its Eastern counterpart, the Western Palace is also not as easy to penetrate as it appears to be.

The estate is surrounded by countless bells in the trees around it, tethered to near-invisible spider silk threads. Even intruders with the softest feet will eventually misstep, and the warriors within the palace are famed for waking from a dead sleep the moment the bells chime. In order to traverse safely, one must be led through the well-lit paths that are always guarded.

"The key to any good protector is first learning the difference between a bell rustled by the wind or animal, and a bell rustled by a criminal." — Ganda, The Hawk.

The beauty of Ettero is in the way it can be easily missed by the passing eye. Blended almost entirely with the nature around it, the temple has been curated with as few disturbances as possible; candles and torches, the rooms carved into the stone it's made from, the waterfalls above it allowed to pour through the aqueducts so as not to disrupt the delivery of water to the salmon waters below.

Many come to train their minds here alongside the monks and the peacekeepers, often coming to live in silence for months at a time until they emerge enlightened and new. It is an immersive experience where Magic is banned and technology is scarce. The homeless, the orphaned and the unfortunate are typically taken in without second thought...even if they're on the run.

"We have no power to change you. The change is from within. All we do, is teach discipline. From it, you can be your own master." — Hashteru, Senior Monk.

Otherwise known as the Kapoa District, this area is heavily devoted to agriculture; namely rice, duck and chicken farming. Much of it is traded to the East to feed their immense culinary culture, and in exchange they typically receive resources with which to expand the dynasty farther into the lush rainforests around it. Honest but hard work, the workers of Kapoa Tau often find solace in the sheer beauty of the humid surroundings from the cloud-capped mountains to the rushing waterfalls.

Many travel through here on their way deeper into the wilds. Workers do their best to dissuade them, but often words of warning to not sate the curiosity of adventurous souls.

"I once was a duck farmer, but then I grew to love my ducks. I then became a koi keeper, but could not bear to rid of them. Finally, I found peace in the tiny grain of rice...so much less guilt." — Tomada, The Wise.
