Astronomers, scholars and deep flux-grown woods as far as the eye can see. With an academy at the center of it all, Solarwood holds many secrets. As the best minds of Thanabus seek knowledge, they may just find more than they bargained for.

The anomaly that brought life to Thanabus offered its greatest bounty to Solarwood, as its lush forests grew and grew out of nothing, covering the northern hemisphere of the moon.

The forests aren’t the only point of interest in Solarwood, as ancient structures from before the Catastrophe remain scattered throughout, the perfect lure for Burkhalter Academy’s scholars…

Does a jungle beckon you - a wilderness of alien beasts and carnivorous fauna? If so, unite with the fellow dispossessed of Sevrend and make your stand against the Republic.

During the Catastrophe, the lush jungle was devastated. The most extreme impact points were marked by deep fissures and jagged borders. Fumes carrying toxics and radiation bathed the landscape.

The Catastrophe splits Thanabus into fragments, creating jagged cliffs and bottomless fissures spewing chartreuse flames. Where the jungle has regrown, vines hug the surfaces of alien rocks.

Would you escape to the desert, where traders and scavengers vicariously maneuver between rampant automatons and unholy beasts? Duskeron calls.

Following the destruction of Starzhen, a horrific dust storm swept across Thanabus. Winds carried the storm to the arid lands of Duskeron, burying the sophisticated technology under its desert visage.

The dry land of Duskeron is a harsh bastion of scavengers and traders, extending over an entire quarter of Thanabus.

The frigid tundra of Ediseau holds the seat of power for the Republic's undisputed rule over the northern hemisphere of the moon. Is this where you belong?

After the Catastrophe fragments from the aftermath entered Thanabus’ atmosphere and showered the world in destruction. Fragments cut through and plummeted into the civilization below.

Once a humid forest, Ediseau is now a snowy frontier, with a cold atmosphere that permeates to the bone. Half the trees died to the new climate, leaving an arctic tundra bordering a white forest.

Regular Plot

1 × 1

Regular plots are the entry level form of land in the game. These plots come with the Sir/Lady title and have traits that are unveiled as the game world unfolds. This might include campsites, NPC houses, resource deposits, monster spawns and more!

Settlements are small pieces of land on which you can place buildings. They can be great resupply stations, forward guild outposts, and more. Settlements come with the Baron/Baroness title and examples of what you can build include small player housing, small guild houses, and small player stores.

Towns are home to buildings aimed toward more specific tasks, such as crafting, specific gear acquisition, and resource refinement. Towns nets you the title of Count/Countess and, alongside all the Settlement buildings, you can construct crafting buildings, medium guild houses, and more.

Cities are centers of commercial activity and are brimming with riches for those willing to put in the work. City owners are granted the title of Duke/Duchess and alongside all buildings from Settlements and Towns, you can construct large guild houses, portals, caravan trading posts, and more!
