Howdy folks! Welcome to the lounge. This thread is for pretty much anything you want to talk about concerning the Archipelago that doesn't really merit it's own thread. If you didn't know yet, Kilvikasa is a large city on Emperor Island that acts as a trade hub for nearly the entire Archipelago. Thus, it is a fitting place for us all to meet and talk! I'll start us off: Did anything specific spark your island ideas? Mine was a picture of the various Karst landscapes found around the world. I thought they were so beautiful and intriguing that I started dreaming up a massive karst landscape formation which eventually became the home of the Niel and the entrance to the Deep (which itself was partially inspired by the game Dwarf Fortress, and because I love caverns and deep, deep places of the earth).
