    Edrun is a large, jungle-like island inhabited by nine mysterious cloaked people. Three of them are male, three are female, three are neither. The males all have mustaches, as does one of the females, and two of the non-binaries.
    Three (one of each gender) are pale, three are tan, and three are brown. Three (one from each skin color and gender) have green eyes, three have red eyes, and three have mismatched black and white eyes. The people with the black and white eyes do not have a visible iris or pupil, only solid color.
    The cloaked people are all immortal magic users and one of the males has a long white beard. The others are mustache-only.

    They live in a stone building in the center of the island, where there is a shrine to the god they worship, Zok. Zok is a mysterious doglike deity. They acknowledge other deities, but do not worship them. They play holy Funk music (if you don't know what Funk is, look up Funk Music, and James Brown, and P-Funk)
    Their names, and instruments:
    Male, Pale, Green Eyes, Long Beard: Morden (vocals and upright bass)
    Male, Tan, Red Eyes, Mustache: Gronin (rhythm guitar-classic funk stlye)
    Male, Brown, White/Black Eyes, Mustache: Zenyr (drums)
    Female, Pale, Red Eyes, Shaven: Zette (lead guitar-rock style)
    Female, Tan, White/Black Eyes, Mustache: Moru (trumpet)
    Female, Brown, Green Eyes, Shaven: Hyra (keyboards-especially organ, but she also owns a synthesizer)
    Agender, Pale, White/Black Eyes, Mustache: Goru (tenor saxophone, and alto saxophone)
    Agender, Tan, Green Eyes, Shaven: Zora-Nimu (trombone)
    Agender, Brown, Red Eyes, Mustache: Akari-Dodubadre (baritone sax, and bass sax)
    They made their instruments themselves, and painted them purple.

    (I edited the above^)
    (Also, feel free to add more to this. Perhaps there are other islanders, in less remote sections?)

    Edrun is not pictured on the map, as it is hidden with magic. People are allowed to come there, but they have to find it first! It is located near the edge of the Archipelago.

    Funk needs an audience to be complete- its about community and sharing the feeling-groove. 9 is not enough.

    also they would never paint their instruments! ;)

    They have an audience- a large group of sapient rabbits that enjoy dancing.
    I veto the 'never paint their instruments' part. They made their instruments.

    but paint would ruin the sound of nearly all of them.

    They painted the parts that do not make sound.

    They used magical paint that doesn't damage instruments.
    [do you have anything to add?]

    point taken! heh. on an island- that was hidden by magic... sounds like a rogues paradise. So yeah, the backside would have a den of the worst of the worst that escaped here when all other ports were closed.

    Yes, a large cave inhabited by fugitives and pirates is on the south end of the island.

    so the conflict is that the magic is failing- the island is becoming visible and the immortals are aging..

    The reason they are aging is because they recently made a song that was not funk, so they temporarily lost their immortality.
    (They made a dubstep song)

    Zok is not truly a deity, but is in fact an illusion put up by a zombie pirate from Sunkstone. The magic of the Edrunians actually comes from a magic orb that is also the source of the zombie pirate coming back to life, and the reason that there is so much magic on Edrun as opposed to the other islands. The presence of a synthesizer is also from the orb. The Edrunians cannot use their magic outside of their island.
    The actual reason that the magic is fading, is because the loudness of the dubstep song broke the orb and the magic is slowly going away. The zombie pirate is still alive though, because a bit of the magic was permanently stuck in him, making him immortal.
