This island, inhabited by both normal sentient Jaernian species and a few native species not known to any other island, is considered home for approximately 100,000 people, 70,000 of which are newcomers in the city of Unity. The island itself is incredibly magically charged, which on occasion has odd effects on those living there, especially the mages and the spells they cast. Due to the extra energy, the life on the island has boomed, and the flora and fauna grow extremely quickly. The trees usually cap out around 200 feet tall, with a few trees towards the center of the island growing very tall, almost to 300 feet. The north end of the island, while still covered in forest, is also comprised of rolling hills, and rivers which flow through the depressions of the hills. The south side of the island is relatively deforested due to massive logging. There are 4 cities on the island, which are Mar, Weto, Unity, and Cradle
With explorers prescence growing around the island, some landmarks have been found, and are listed as below.
Onivero Crystal: Located deep in the ground beneath Cradle, this crystal contained massive psionic energy, and was recently drained by an explorer. It was in a city called Decken, and the Onivero there had all passed away when Jaern was an ice ball in space. The crystal was discovered to also be what caused the mass genesis of life that had been going on Gaea, and with its removal, life wiltered. The person who drained it has agreed to live on the island for the time being, until a secondary answer can be found. Crystal found on 11/01/10070 (date is correct), crystal was drained on 1/12/10071
Fire Rift: Located on the far east side of the island, it is found shortly in a cave, and emits a red beam of fiery light towards the sky. The rift was opened by adventurers and a pirate on 1/9/10071
Earth Rift: Located on the south end of the island, it was located deep beneath Mar & Weto, in the center of a temple made to the undead. The city itself was full of undead as well. The rift was reopened by adventurers, and emits a large amber colored beam of light into the sky, as well as being circles by stones and rocks. Opened on 1/19/10071
Water Rift: The Water Rift was opened in a long since submerged temple, guarded by a water elemental. It is deep on the west side of the island, and is outputting a large blue beam of light, which curves towards the island.
Air Rift: This rift is located on the north end of the island, and had significant effect on the dimension there. Due to Air being in charge of the dimensions spell group, the area directly around it was covered in a dimension similar to a black hole. Those who went inside were trapped until the year 20206, when the black hole was revoked by a mage. Ever since the rift was opened, the island has been covered in a wind, which varies between a soft breeze to wrath level winds near the portal.
Nomadic Cloud: There used to be a huge nomadic cloud over the north end of the island, but was handed for now by NPC's in the city of Unity.
The Aldamarian: Discovered due to the combination of the 4 rifts being opened, the presence of a massive psionic source, the Nomadic Cloud, and a Large divine crystal placed in the center of Unity. Due to the natural formations surrounding it, being mithril, adamantite, and teresium, it is able to absorb the magical radiation of all the massive magical sources and it condenses them into a pool. This is primal magic, before the magical energy has been chosen to the form its going to take. The natural bowl itself is in a cave, not far from beneath Weto.
