The Island of Kordan (Levels 10 - 20)

Kordan is one of three large islands linked together by an ancient and poorly understood portal system. It is home to two major cities, with Naphtali on the eastern coast and Indira near the western edge. Each city is built around one of the ancient portals.

The island of Sloe is located somewhere to the west of Kordan. Archais is located somewhere to the east. Kordan was first settled by explorers from the island Archais when the portal in Gad's Landing was discovered.

All three islands are known to be west of the main continent of Alter Aeon, and Kordan is the centermost of these. The exact location of any of the islands remains undetermined - no ship sailing west from the mainland has ever found any of the islands, while ships sailing from the islands have never found any other island or the mainland.

The distances between the islands appear to be so great that even magical location spells are only able to provide an approximate direction, and give no hint as to distance beyond "really, really far away".

The two major towns of Indira and Naphtali are shown in detail on this map. Also included are the locations of a number of villages and graveyards, as well as what little is known about the lost city of New Thalos.

A portal in Indira links to the town of Vemarken on the Island of Sloe. A similar portal in the town of Naphtali links to the town of Gad's Landing, on the Island of Archais.

The trade route map focuses more on roads and trails and is intended for merchants, travellers, and caravans. As with all sanctioned trade route maps, its accuracy was only guaranteed for a short time after it was issued.

Maps From the Pantheon of Gods

Here are a handful of maps created by the Gods of Alter Aeon, given to select few priests and mortals and eventually acquired by the Cartographers Guild. As with all godly artifacts, these maps may be extremely useful, useless, or even dangerous to adventurers; Where possible, translations and interperetations have been added to improve clarity.

This God map, known only as a "Room Map", is difficult to decipher but appears to give a distorted yet very detailed view of the areas within it. Different colors indicate water or other unusual terrain types.

As with all godly artifacts, trust these maps at your own risk.
