Florem Region

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

Florem Region

No. Description

Florem Region: Blessed with plentiful grasslands, forests, water, and flowers, this region lies east of Caldisla and north of Harena. It is also home to the Temple of Water.

Nature’s Bounty: The flower gardens have drawn people and animals alike to the region, and the great forests and pure flowing waters sustain their lives. The people give thanks to the Water Crystal for the blessings of nature, making Florem a longtime centre of Crystalism.

Flower Gardens and Forests: To the south stands the temple where the Water Crystal is enshrined. The clear waters cleansed by the temple empty into the Flor-Cheim Inner Sea. Great flower gardens are located to the west, and to the east stretches a vast forest. the ages-old worship of the spirits of these lands still continues, in harmony with Crystalism.

Florem, Land of Radiant Flowers

No. Description

Florem, Land of Radiant Flowers: The ancient traditions of this land dictate that men may not permanently reside within its borders, and it is said that the “radiant flowers” mentioned in its name also refers to its women. Its capital city is built atop the bountiful waters of the Flor River.

Pleasure Quarter: The bright, colourful area is an unexpected sight, as Florem is thought to be an impoverished yet honourable land blessed more by nature’s bounty than material wealth. It is far different from what Agnès remembers when she visited as a child.

River-top City: The lower area where the commoners once lived has been transformed into a shopping district, and the monuments venerating nature and the crystal have been torn down to make way for a flashy stage and colourful, opulent buildings. It seems the city has undergone a major multi-year transformation into the pleasure district it is today.

The Decline of Crystalism: Though Florem was once said to be the land most firmly rooted in Crystalism in all of Luxendarc, there are few indications left. The water vestal has gone into hiding and the Crystalist faithful cower in fear. Even the Matriarch who governs this land has been driven to the fringes of the city and can do nothing but watch the worsening changes.

Temple of Water

No. Description

Temple of Water: Although it seems completely undamaged, unlike the sad state of the Temple of Win, an eerie stillness and unsettling silence pervade its empty halls.

The Awakening: Arrayed in her vestal garb, Agnès chanted the ritual prayer to awaken the Water Crystal, which had been swallowed up in darkness. The crystal has now regained its radiance.

Florem Gardens

No. Description

Florem Gardens: In western Florem, seasonal flowers bloom in profusion, as if each one were vying to outdo the other. The gardens can be reached by heading west from the Temple of Water, crossing the bridge, and then immediately heading north along the river.

Twilight Ruins

No. Description

Twilight Ruins: Located on the western edge of Florem far to the west of the Temple of Water, these ruins are believed to predate Florem’s founding. Its deepest reaches are a training ground for the adherents of Crystalism.
