To the typical citizen of Terrainia; Ra isn't inhabited, its simply a domain of Talax, used for farming rare mushrooms, but what they don't know is that's it home to the last of the ancient mythical race of Dryads. Their leader was saved from destruction by Queen Karla Raeger and they formed a friendship that has lasted over a thousand years. The queen found them a new home in return for the protection of thier mushrooms.

The only humans on the island are a handful of soldiers and workers that facilitate the shipping of the mushrooms back to Talax, they all reside at the tiny port settlement, on a piece of land that extends from the island to the southwest.

Landmarks: The Lighthouse of Volan

Built ten years before Volan Hoardrin sailed across the Talax Ocean, Volan knew his fleet would need guidance across such a treacherous span of water. He was well aware of the rumours about the island to the north and wanted to steer clear of it.

His solution was to build a beacon so high and so bright it would be seen from such a distance that it would guide his ships on both stages of the journey.

The lighthouse is now redundant due to the more advanced maps and shipping lanes, particularly the use of the water to the south of Ra, the lighthouse has fallen into disrepair, although on the darkest nights and foggy days sailors claim to have seen the lighthouse and used it to stay on course.

, The Golden Tree

In the centre of the forests of Ra stands an impossible tree, golden in colour with three trunks twisting around each other until they become one. It?s this tree that changes the solid around its base and allows the rare Golden Mushroom to grow.

The mushroom has a golden colour but is otherwise edible, but it has a renown healing property, when used in the right way.

The tree is the last of the golden trees that used to grow throughout the area, they were being cut down by raiders until Karla Raeger blockaded the island and stopped their attacks, this not only saved the last golden tree but also the lord of the dryad people who had settled on the island some millennia before.
