Caldis Region

Here you’ll find information taken from D’s Journal regarding the many different locations you’ll visit during your journey within Luxendarc.

Caldis Region

No. Description

Caldis Region: The continent of Caldis and its surrounding waters are on the northern edge of the Sea of Corsairs in Luxendarc’s northern hemisphere.

Continent of Caldis: Surrounded by the North Caldis Sea, Etersen Sea, and the Sea of Corsairs, this small continent is almost completely covered in a mountainous region known as the Norende Heights, but on the east coast, there is a narrow flatland area with a thriving city.

Blessed with a mild climate and warm ocean currents, this land has four beautiful seasons and bountiful fishing and forestry.

Kingdom of Caldisla

No. Description

Kingdom of Caldisla: The kingdom’s capital is located on the south port of the continent where the Caldis River empties into the Sea of Corsairs. It has long been blessed with many thriving fishing ports, and in recent years, it has become an important stop on booming sea trade routes.

Town of Caldisla: The town that has grown around the royal castle over the years has joined with the thriving port town. Together they form the capital of the Kingdom of Caldisla.

Caldisla Palace: The palace was once a strong hilltop fortress until a Caldislan king unified the kingdom nine generations ago. Through a peaceful medieval period in which the kingdom was protected by the sea in all directions, most of it evolved into a bustling merchant town, leaving only a palace and a small barracks where the fortress once stood.

Inn: Located in the town of Caldisla at the bottom of a major street, this inn is a favourite of travelling merchants for its fair prices and courteous service. The royal family even recognises it as a “Blue Tile,” a designation given only to the finest establishments in town. The seasonal seafood cuisine prepared by the inn’s proprietor is superb.

Norende Village

No. Description

Norende Village: This small settlement is situated on the Norende Heights that stretch across the continent of Caldis. Its people are primarily involved in forestry as well as animal husbandry that makes use of the expansive mountaintop plains across the region.

The narrow byway that runs alongside Norende Ravine at the upper reaches of the Caldis River is little used, even by the locals, for it is dim and dangerous even by day.

Great Chasm: This gaping void opened up in the Norende Region, swallowing Tiz’s entire village during a massive earthquake that shook all of Caldisla.

Canyon Road: A narrow byway created long ago along Norende Ravine at the upper reaches of the Caldis River. It is the sole route to the site of Norende Village now that the main road to the north has been cut off by the Great Chasm.

Ruins of Centro Keep

No. Description

Ruins of Centro Keep: These ruins located along the main road stretching north from the Caldislan castle were once considered a vital strategic point between the northern and southern regions, but they were abandoned after being rendered obsolete by the unification of the kingdom.

Eternia’s Forward Encampment: Mere months after the Knights of the Eternian Sky landed in northern Caldisla, ground forces led by the black mage Ominas Crowe occupied Centro Keep, using it as a forward encampment from which to strike the town of Caldisla. With the bridge over the Caldis River taken out in the Eternian attack, little has been done to repel the invasion.

Black Mage Keep: Black Mage Ominas Crowe, the fiend who set fires in the town of Caldisla, has transformed the Ruins of Centro Keep into an Eternian encampment.

Lontano Villa

No. Description

Lontano Villa: Situated on the northern end of the continent of Caldis and famous for its scenic views, this villa is used for receiving foreign dignitaries and escaping the summer heat. It was once a stronghold of the forces opposing the Caldislan royal family, and many fierce battles were waged around Centro Keep, along the main road.

Eternian Encampment: The first site occupied by the Sky Knights. What started as an airship dock has grown into a sprawling camp for the invasion of Caldisla.

Lake to the Southwest

No. Description

Lake to the Southwest: A lake to the southwest of the Caldislan castle that no one has bothered to name. Sky Knight airships use it when coming to bombard the town.
