From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:18 y:27
Lookout
/lookout

Among the most sacred locations of the Vanu Vanu, this is said to be the spot where a single feather from Bismarck, ruler of the clouds, fell to the surface. In recent years, the elder of the violent Vundu tribe has claimed it as his seat of power, from which he rules with an iron claw.

From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:25 y:23
Lookout
/lookout

Roughly translating as “high home of the Vundu,” this village is home to the Vanu Vanu's aggressive Vundu tribe. Exceedingly proud, the Vundu believe that the voices of those who live highest in the skies will be heard loud and clear by the ruler of the clouds.
028 Impressions028 Hengr's Crucible

From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:38 y:11
Lookout
/lookout

This oddly shaped isle, floating in the eastern reaches of the Sea of Clouds, is named for the witch Hengr, a figure of Coerthan faerie tales whose cauldron its shape is said to resemble. In recent years, it has become a gathering place for the notoriously territorial toco tocos.

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:40 y:21
Lookout
/lookout

Once home to Sharlayan masters who fashioned aetherytes within its halls, this workshop is now home to the Illuminati, a nasty band of goblins who would wield the ancient technologies within for their own nefarious ends.

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:10 y:35
Lookout
/lookout

The spot where the melted snows of Abalathia's Spine flow emerge from their source to descend down the mountain, forming the countless tributaries that come together as the mighty Thaliak River. The name is said to come from the deity whose name the river bears and the magicked pitcher from which poured the waters of knowledge.
033 Impressions033 Great Gubal Library

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:28 y:37
Lookout
/lookout

A massive library constructed by the Sharlayans to house the wealth of knowledge they had amassed in their travels across the realm. Though the vast majority of the tomes that once lined its shelves were carried back to the motherland in the exodus, it is said forbidden texts still slumber in sealed-off vaults below.
034 Impressions034 The Orn Wild

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:32 y:11
Lookout
/lookout

A primeval forest that stretches across the northern reaches of the Dravanian hinterlands, its rich verdure sustained by the pristine waters of the Thaliak. Nigh untouched by the hand of man, its wilds stand between those who would make their way to Sharlayan without braving a trek across the forelands.
035 Impressions035 Saint Mocianne's Arboretum

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her glory. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:13 y:21
Lookout
/lookout

This botanical garden built by the Sharlayans once was home to fauna and flora collected from across the realm, the study of which yielded numerous discoveries regarding our natural world. Sadly, it was abandoned in the exodus, the teeming life within left to run wild and unchecked.
036 Impressions036 The Gration

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:39 y:17
Lookout
/lookout

Flagship of the VIth Legion of the Garlean Empire, of the same make as the fallen Agrius. It now lies grounded, its ceruleum engines sealed in aetheric ice by the hand of Shiva, Lady of Frost.
037 Impressions037 The Fractal Continuum

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:33 y:35
Lookout
/lookout

A mighty warship converted to a museum, intended to preserve for eternity precious artifacts from the thousand-year history of the Allagan Empire. From everyday tools to advanced military technology, the objects within are a testament to the fallen civilization's surpassing might and prosperity.
038 Impressions038 Antithesis

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:6 y:30
Lookout
/lookout

Home to Tiamat, great wyrm of Midgardsormr's first brood, who fell to and was imprisoned by the Allagans. Even now, she laments her fateful decision to summon her brood-brother Bahamut back as a primal to aid her in her struggle.
039 Impressions039 Aetherochemical Research Facility

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:10 y:35

An ancient Allagan research facility, wherein studies in restraining dragons and mastering primals were conducted. Test subjects from failed experiments prowl its long-since-abandoned halls.
040 Impressions040 Helix

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:6 y:9
Lookout
/lookout

A massive port of sorts that stands among the wastes of Azys Lla. As the guidance node tells it, it was one of the few imperial landings massive enough to house Ragnarok-class internment hulks. It would seem the docking rings that remain are but a fraction of those that stood in bygone days.
041 Impressions041 Quarantine Block

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:9 y:21
Lookout
/lookout

This floating islet in a lonely corner of Azys Lla served as an isolation area for chimerical creations which failed to meet established safety parameters. Historical records indicate that the facility began its life as a research center for advanced agricultural crossbreeding.
042 Impressions042 Recombination Labs

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:30 y:11
Lookout
/lookout

This Allagan research facility gave birth to countless numbers of chimerical creations. Though the guidance system is quick to assure all visitors that the good behavior of the creatures born here was─at least at one point─guaranteed, recent visitors may find themselves having doubts.
043 Impressions043 The Pike

From high atop the western highlands of Coerthas, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Coerthas Western Highlands x:32 y:28
Rally
/rally

A monumental stone sculpture carved in the likeness of Haldrath, the first Azure Dragoon. The stonemason Percelle devoted thirty of her later years chiseling the piece, and it has stood for more than 150 years since. Even today, one cannot find a more stirring tribute to one of Ishgard's founding fathers.
044 Impressions044 Black Iron Bridge

From high atop the western highlands of Coerthas, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Coerthas Western Highlands x:29 y:23
Lookout
/lookout

This testament to the skill of House Dzemael's artisans serves the main road stretching from the capital to the Dusk Vigil. Although built primarily of solid stone, the bridge was named for its suspended metal chains, wrought from black iron impervious to the blazing temperatures of a dragon's exhalation.
045 Impressions045 Dragonspit

From high atop the western highlands of Coerthas, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Coerthas Western Highlands x:9 y:10
Sit on Ground
/groundsit

Said to be as scalding as a wyrm's breath, Dragonspit is a colorful analogy for the hot springs nestled between the cliffs near the Slate Mountains. Local wildlife has long been attracted to the warmth of the natural thermal pools, and their numbers have only increased following the advent of the long winter. The steaming springs are also frequented by Ishgardian knights, who laud them for their supposed healing properties.
046 Impressions046 The Slate Mountains

From high atop the western highlands of Coerthas, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Coerthas Western Highlands x:12 y:8
Me
/me

These mountains on the outskirts of Ishgard were valued as a mining site for slate of exceptional quality. Three years past, the knights of House Dzemael attempted to carve an Ishgardian stronghold into the cliffs, enraging the dragon Cuelebre and his followers. Remnants of the gruesome battle that followed still lie scattered about the crags, unable to decay in the chilled altitude.
047 Impressions047 Whilom River

From high atop the Dravanian forelands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Forelands x:23 y:39
Lookout
/lookout

When asked to explain the origin of its name, the local hunters usually say that while the river courses with tranquility in the present day, it once ran scarlet with the blood of the Dravanians and their foes. Those who fraternize with the dragons refute this interpretation, asserting instead that the river is symbolic of the passage of time since the sorrowful parting of paths between man and dragon.
048 Impressions048 Loth ast Vath

From high atop the Dravanian forelands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Forelands x:24 y:18
Lookout
/lookout

Cast out from the main colony, a minority of Gnath known as the Nonmind built Loth ast Vath as a sanctuary for other exiles. The word “Vath” is derogatory in the Gnathic tongue, referring to those who can no longer link their thoughts to the Overmind. Possessed of individual personalities unlike their Onemind brothers, the Vath learn to live with each other's differing thoughts in the makeshift colony.
049 Impressions049 The Hissing Cobbles

From high atop the Dravanian forelands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Forelands x:34 y:15
Lookout
/lookout

The remaining fragment of a forgotten highway, the Hissing Cobbles have been molded by the inexorable march of time, its neatly arranged grids of stone fading into earth and dust. The hunters of Tailfeather bitterly call it such as many a tracked quarry have escaped, startled by the hissing sound of boots grating on loose gravel.
050 Impressions050 The Danneroad

From high atop the Dravanian forelands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Forelands x:18 y:32
Lookout
/lookout

This road leading to Anyx Trine was originally called Dran Errn, which roughly translates to “the path of dragon and man.” Due to the difficult pronunciation, the road became known as the Danneroad over time, and its profound meaning was forgotten by all but the Dravanians.
051 Impressions051 Statue of the Unsung

From high atop the Churning Mists, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Churning Mists x:34 y:32
Pray
/pray

A solitary statue of a dragon in the southeastern corner of the Churning Mists. While it is difficult to ascertain the circumstances which led to its creation, the sculpture's foundation bears a weathered inscription in an early script which reads “along with the memory of thine heroic sapphire wings.”
052 Impressions052 Landlord Colony

From high atop the Churning Mists, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Churning Mists x:37 y:14
Lookout
/lookout

The many dwellings here show evidence of extensive damage, likely the work of a furious Nidhogg following the betrayal of man. The moogles tell that the ruins were once home to the “lords of the lower lands,” although their history was lost in the great wyrm's wrath.
053 Impressions053 The Old Father

From high atop the Churning Mists, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Churning Mists x:14 y:25
Lookout
/lookout

The moogles consider this ancient tree to be the forebearer of all flora in the Churning Mists. They believe that the Father bore witness to a time before man and dragon descended into their millennium of bloodshed.
054 Impressions054 Coldwind

From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:6 y:5
Lookout
/lookout

When the Rose Knights first came to the Sea of Clouds and treated with the Zundu, they asked the chieftain what he called this islet floating northwest of Ok' Zundu, to which he responded “small island beneath which cold winds of Coerthas ever blow.” For the sake of brevity, the knights simply called it Coldwind.
055 Impressions055 The Shattered Back

From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:26 y:6
Lookout
/lookout

The strong seasonal winds from the north have carved the crags of this floating isle into their unique shapes. The knights of Ishgard called it the Shattered Back for its ominous resemblance to the gnarled rib bones of a great beast.
056 Impressions056 Provenance

From high atop the Sea of Clouds, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Sea of Clouds x:9 y:28
Lookout
/lookout

When Ser Marielle was appointed to the Rose Knights of Camp Cloudtop, she spotted this heart-shaped island atop the deck of her airship bound for post. It reminded the knight of a place of provenance where two lovers would begin their journey together, and the island was named thus.
057 Impressions057 The Sage's Cataract

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:12 y:13
Lookout
/lookout

As the Thaliak River stretches north towards the Orn Wild, it spills over this grand waterfall. In the past, students would compete to see who could swim closest to the cataract's edge without succumbing to its powerful torrents. A ban on entering the waters was eventually imposed after too many accidents.
058 Impressions058 The Path of Knowing

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:19 y:38
Lookout
/lookout

This colossal bridge was once a bustling artery for researchers, students, and curators commuting to and from the Great Gubal Library. Its stone pillars suffered significant damage when the Calamity reshaped the land, causing a portion of the walkway to crumble and collapse.
059 Impressions059 The Daggers

From high atop the Dravanian hinterlands, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
The Dravanian Hinterlands x:30 y:31
Lookout
/lookout

An area of the hinterlands where clusters of stone columns shaped like daggers protrude from the earth. The scholars of Sharlayan had long been engulfed in a heated debate over whether the name was too simple and colloquial, but a different one was never decided upon as the proposals began to exceed the columns in number.
060 Impressions060 Centrifugal Crystal Engine

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:10 y:14
Lookout
/lookout

This seemingly indefatigable engine harnessed the power of the imprisoned Warring Triad to transmute the life force of chimera experiments into synthetic crystal. These manufactured shards would then be used to fuel the cultivation of the chimeras as part of research into the possibility of obtaining limitless power.
061 Impressions061 Biomass Incubation Complex

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:35 y:6
Lookout
/lookout

A research facility dedicated to chimera splicing experiments. Its construction was prompted by “imaginative requests” from the Allagan Research Council and related institutes, leading to the cultivation of all manner of living prototypes. The Mutagenesis nearby serves as an annex to the complex.
062 Impressions062 The Cathedral

From high atop Azys Lla, I looked out upon the realm in all her twisted beauty. There I saw a sight that will be sung of for as long as songs are sung.
Azys Lla x:25 y:28
Lookout
/lookout

A cathedral designed in a distinct Meracydian style. The architecture suggests a place of worship by a tribe of treelike beings who believed themselves “remnants” of Sephirot. To research the link between faith and primal summoning, the Allagans moved the ancient structure to Azys Lla from its original location on the southern continent.
001 Impressions001 Castellum Velodyna

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:21.9 y:26.9
Lookout
/lookout

Built upon the bridge over the Velodyna River, this imperial fortification serves as a critical waypoint for supplies, connecting the many military installations to the east with Baelsar's Wall to the west. Rising sky-high from the center is a great tower that provides moorage for airships.
002 Impressions002 Gyr Kehim

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:24.2 y:16.3
Lookout
/lookout

A monastery established some three centuries ago by Heimart, high priest of the Fist of Rhalgr. In the ancient Mhachi language, the name means “one's mirage”─a reference to the arduous training that monks underwent to face their inner self in their quest to master both body and mind.
003 Impressions003 Schism

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:23.2 y:7.2
Lookout
/lookout

In a time out of mind, seeking to approach the sublimity of Rhalgr, a man began pummeling a mountain with his fists. After decades of nigh ceaseless striking, he succeeded in forming a great cavern in the mountain. This nameless soul is revered as the first monk of the Fist of Rhalgr, and the temple was later built here, within the hollow he had created.
004 Impressions004 Castrum Oriens

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:9.3 y:10.8
Lookout
/lookout

This Garlean stronghold has its beginnings as the construction base for Baelsar's Wall. Following the Seventh Umbral Calamity, it was expanded to become a fully fledged castrum for the Black Wolf's renewed invasion efforts. Nowadays, it is held by the Order of the Twin Adder and jointly garrisoned by Alliance forces.
005 Impressions005 Dimwold

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:8.6 y:26.4
Lookout
/lookout

A gloomy forest occupying the southern expanse of East End. Drenched by the waters of Timmon Beck and numerous subterranean springs, the air beneath the boughs is laden with moisture, giving rise to a constant veil of light-smothering mist.
006 Impressions006 Djanan Qhat

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:36.5 y:16.4
Lookout
/lookout

A distinctive castle of clay built by the Ananta, housing within its depths a shrine to the goddess Lakshmi, Lady of Bliss. For this reason it was given its name, which means “mother's bed” in the Ananta tongue. At present it is occupied by the dominant Qalyana tribe.
007 Impressions007 The Peering Stones

Roaming the scarred Fringes, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Fringes x:30 y:25.2
Lookout
/lookout

The village of the M tribe, perched high atop a crag. Its position affords residents a commanding view of their entire territory, and neither trespasser nor prey may pass through unnoticed. As the Garleans deem hunting cultures savage, however, imperial rule has proven harder upon them than most.
008 Impressions008 Hidden Tear

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:33.2 y:10.1
Lookout
/lookout

A shrine for honoring the departed, backed by a waterfall whose constant roaring muffles one's sobs and whose spraying hides one's tears. Under imperial rule, however, religious rites were outlawed, and for a long time people could not hold even the simplest services to remember loved ones.
009 Impressions009 Coldhearth

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:27 y:36.9
Lookout
/lookout

Tucked away in a forgotten corner of the Peaks, this sleepy hamlet is known for producing mercenaries, a tradition that was born out of necessity. With its lands yielding precious little bounty, youths took to leaving hearth and home behind to trade their sword arms for coin, most notable among them being Raubahn Aldynn, the Bull of Ala Mhigo.
010 Impressions010 Nyunkrepf's Hope

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:22 y:32.8
Lookout
/lookout

When the Sixth Umbral Calamity befell Eorzea and the realm was transformed into a sea, this great vessel, built by a man hailing far from the north named Nyunkrepf, saved full many lives. Having taken aboard countless souls drifting in the floodwaters, it was finally transported by magicks to its current resting place.
011 Impressions011 Ala Gannha

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:25.1 y:5.8
Lookout
/lookout

Situated in the Peak's northern reaches, this village once flourished through its quarry, the beautiful stone sourced and cut here used to build no lesser a structure than the royal palace of Ala Mhigo. Such prosperous days, however, have become but a memory, and the villagers are faced with the harsh realities of a failing industry.
012 Impressions012 Specula Imperatoris

013 Impressions013 The Arms of Meed

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:8.1 y:37.5
Lookout
/lookout

Cleanse your mind, hone your flesh, redeem your soul─so teaches the Fist of Rhalgr. The temple was built in accordance with this belief, that those who have committed wrongs might atone for their sins. Seven years of grueling training here will earn you the Destroyer's forgiveness no matter the weight of your crime.
014 Impressions014 The Ziggurat

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:18.3 y:14.3
Lookout
/lookout

The Sixth Umbral Calamity wreaked havoc upon the realm's aetherial flow, giving rise to unstable weather patterns. Desiring to correct the disturbance, descendants of the Amdapori and the Mhachi set aside past differences and came together to build the Ziggurat, which served as a weight to still the land's writhing currents of aether.
015 Impressions015 Emprise

Roaming the jagged Peaks, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Peaks x:7.5 y:7.6
Lookout
/lookout

In the past, monks who completed their training at the Temple of the Fist were honored in a ceremony held in this hallowed cloister. Once alive with activity, thronging with monks and pilgrims alike, it was laid to waste at the mad king's command and is now home to naught but ghosts of the past.
016 Impressions016 Ala Mhigo

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Lochs x:23.5 y:33.7
Lookout
/lookout

Having conquered all the lands of Gyr Abania, King Anshelm ordered the construction of a fortress city that would serve to repel invaders from Ilsabard. Completed in the year 1135 of the Sixth Astral Era, it stood as a symbol of defiance until it fell to the Empire, whereupon it became a symbol of oppression.
017 Impressions017 The Ala Mhigan Quarter

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Lochs x:35.2 y:33.2
Lookout
/lookout

A residential area situated to the south of Ala Mhigo, built to accommodate the city's growing population. As the newest district to be added, it is a considerable distance from the royal palace, and was expected to become an enclave for the less well-to-do. Under Garlean rule, it more or less retained that status, serving to quarter the Aan─those without citizenship.
018 Impressions018 Sothwatch

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Lochs x:13.8 y:35.5
Lookout
/lookout

A watchtower erected to guard against invaders that may emerge from the cloudy expanses to the south. In the event of a threat, a flaming arrow is loosed from the top to alert those in the city. The Garleans saw no use for it, however, and it has stood empty in the years following Ala Mhigo's fall.
019 Impressions019 The Divine Audience

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. The breathtaking vista inspired me to prayer, and I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Lochs x:20.6 y:16.5
Pray
/pray

A magnificent altar fashioned in the form of a stairway extending high above Loch Seld, at the top of which worshipers may come facetoface with the statue of the Destroyer. Formerly a place of piety, it earned a bloody reputation when the mad king Theodoric took to using it as an execution site.
020 Impressions020 The Hidden Tunnel

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.
The Lochs x:33.9 y:30.2
Lookout
/lookout

In order to supply Ala Mhigo with potable water, brine was channeled from Loch Seld to be distilled. With the Empire's arrival, however, existing techniques were replaced with magitek-based filtration systems, and the well was rendered obsolete and abandoned.
021 Impressions021 Porta Praetoria

Roaming the majestic Lochs, I came upon a spectacular vantage point. As I looked out at the breathtaking vista, I knew that I wished to share it with all the world.

Weed, Brick, Knot, and Lap─the fishing village of Sullen sprawls across these four small islands, its bridges connecting each location to the next, and thence to the shore of the Source itself. The settlement's name, it seems, was agreed upon as a self-deprecating nod to the oft-creased brows of its resident fishermen.
016 Impressions016 Cracked Shell Beach

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:33.2 y:28.9
Lookout
/lookout

When questioned on the rather prosaic name of this coastline, the inhabitants of nearby Stilltide simply point to the carpet of broken seashells. In earlier days, they say the beach was crowded with the comings and goings of local fishermen, but now it is mostly the boots of barbaric hobgoblins leaving tracks along the pebbled shore.
017 Impressions017 White Oil Falls

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:28.8 y:22.1
Lookout
/lookout

This waterfall marks the midpoint of Watts River. The sluggish current sends water over the cliff with little force, the cascade cleaving closely to the rock as it plunges down from an impressive height. Upon observing this almost-viscous flow, a renowned poet is said to have likened the falls to an enormous trickle of oil.
018 Impressions018 Gatetown

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:23.6 y:38.1
Lookout
/lookout

Gatetown is a haphazard mess of shacks and lean-tos─the result of refugees throwing up shelters as they await their chance to embrace the comforts of Eulmore. Though living conditions can best be described as “abysmal,” the regular distribution of meol and minimal risk of eater attacks has only seen the population increase over time.
019 Impressions019 Wright

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:18.2 y:29.3
Lookout
/lookout

A farming village in the southern reaches of Kholusia. The residents of Wright have refused the largesse of Eulmore, preferring instead to subsist upon barley, vegetables, and other crops cultivated through time-honored methods. Their independence cost them dearly, however, when the appearance of a stray sin eater ended in unspeakable slaughter.
020 Impressions020 The Ladder

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:12.1 y:22.1
Lookout
/lookout

This enormous mechanism facilitates travel between Kholusia's lowlands and highlands. Its gears once driven by the tireless Talos of Daedalus Stoneworks, the apparatus fell into disrepair after said company retired its operations in the region─a development which all but halted trade with the highland dwarves.
021 Impressions021 Tomra

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:13.6 y:9.9
Lookout
/lookout

One of the dwarven settlements which dot the slopes of Mt. Gulg, Tomra is home to a sizable branch of the Tholl family. Every building is constructed on a scale to cater to the diminutive inhabitants, giving taller races the impression of a village built in miniature.
022 Impressions022 The Duergar's Tewel

In my wanderings across Kholusia, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Kholusia x:37.1 y:11.5
Lookout
/lookout

The far end of the Dwarven Hollows opens up into a great, crater-like expanse. Geysers here spew volcanically heated water high into the air, spraying the uncaring dwarves as they mine deposits of sulphur and other valuable minerals.
023 Impressions023 The Red Serai

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:33.2 y:13.7
Lookout
/lookout

This amaro roost was established by Crystarium merchants plying their trade in Amh Araeng. Tucked within the foreboding walls of Qasr Sharl, the waypoint and its stockpiled goods are well protected from both predators and windblown sands.
024 Impressions024 Mord Souq

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:25.3 y:16.6
Lookout
/lookout

The Mord have long dwelled in Amh Araeng, and this “souq” or “city” serves as a marketplace to display the curious wares they gather from every corner of the badlands. Merchants and collectors from across Norvrandt can be seen here purchasing ores, oddities, and the relics of Nabaath Areng.
025 Impressions025 The Pristine Palace of Amh Malik

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:28.5 y:31.9
Lookout
/lookout

In the common tongue, “amh malik” translates into “majestic king,” and it was within this royal residence that was housed the core of Nabaath Areng's political and military might. When the Flood came, however, it was halted moments too late─half the palace toppled before a titanic wave of Light like a sand castle caught by the tide.
026 Impressions026 Mount Biran Mines

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:22.1 y:9.4
Lookout
/lookout

The shafts carved into the side of Mount Biran were the center of a large-scale mining operation which employed the relentless strength of an army of Talos. As is the case with Garik, Kelk, and many other places in the region, “Biran” was a name taken from a Ronso of historical note.
027 Impressions027 Twine

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:11.1 y:16.9
Lookout
/lookout

In days past, Nabaath Areng contracted a Talos engineer to establish its mining railway, and these cabins were built to provide lodgings for the laborers who would lay the trolley tracks. The settlement was later maintained as a miners' village, but its dwindling population has mirrored the steady decline of the mining industry.
028 Impressions028 Kelk

In my wanderings across Amh Araeng, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Amh Araeng x:20.4 y:21.3
Lookout
/lookout

The ruins of a Ronso settlement. Residents abandoned Kelk for the cities long before the Flood arrived, and thus it is known amongst scavengers as a prime location for finding trinkets and relics untouched by conflict.
029 Impressions029 Lydha Lran

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:14.8 y:31.9
Lookout
/lookout

Finding it abandoned by its former inhabitants following the events of the Flood, the pixies have claimed this Voeburtite village as their own. The fae have continued the villagers' practice of keeping sheep, making use of the weed-choked pens to raise and milk their woolly livestock.
030 Impressions030 The Bookman's Shelves

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:8.7 y:16.8
Lookout
/lookout

Lately the borrowed residence of a foreign scholar, this manor once belonged to a Voeburtite lord known for the eclectic nature of his hobbies. In a miraculous turn of events, the noble's extensive collection of books and academic apparatus have largely been left undisturbed by curious pixie hands.
031 Impressions031 Pla Enni

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:20.2 y:4.6
Lookout
/lookout

Known for their harmonious relationship with the now-faded Kingdom of Voeburt, the Nu Mou people reside in this cavern under the leadership of their elder, Wyd Aenc. As well as being the name of the village, “pla enni” is a variety of mushroom the Nu Mou grow to incredible size─large enough for them to hollow out and use as comfortable dwellings.
032 Impressions032 Deepwood Swim

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:21.4 y:20.9
Lookout
/lookout

In the time of Voeburt, when Lyhe Ghiah was yet known as Gruenes Licht, these ruins were a thriving castle town. Now they languish at the bottom of Longmirror Lake, submerged in the waters drawn forth by the Fuath as the faeries laid claim to Il Mheg.
033 Impressions033 Lyhe Ghiah

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:20.8 y:16.2
Lookout
/lookout

Once the royal seat of Voeburt, Lyhe Ghiah later became a prison for Titania when the faerie king succumbed to the aether of a slain Lightwarden. The castle's name has its origin in both the faerie and Voeburtite tongues, the words thought to translate as the “wings of dreams.”
034 Impressions034 Saint Fathric's Temple

In my wanderings through Il Mheg, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
Il Mheg x:35.7 y:24.8
Lookout
/lookout

This secluded mountain shelf was favored by Saint Fathric of the Church of the First Light as a place to perform rites of penance. Amongst the faeries of Il Mheg, only the Nu Mou would remember or understand the significance of the location's history.
035 Impressions035 Fort Gohn

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:13.6 y:32.4
Lookout
/lookout

Built by the Night's Blessed, little now remains of this wooden fortification. By all accounts, a fire broke out during a sin eater attack, and even before the violence had ended, the compound had collapsed into a charred ruin. Survivors of the slaughter had had no choice but to relocate to the nearby Slitherbough.
036 Impressions036 Fruit of the Protector

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:8.9 y:25.1
Lookout
/lookout

Cradled within the branches of a giant tree, this immense crystal boulder is suspended above the waters of Lake Tusi Mek'ta. The “Fruit of the Protector,” as it is known, has been the subject of worship since the time of the Ronkan Empire, and even now folk tell the legend of the great entity believed to be cocooned within.
037 Impressions037 The Covered Halls of Dwatl

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:4.4 y:27.2
Lookout
/lookout

One of the sacred temples built by the Ronkans, these stone halls were safeguarded by a sect of priests even after the fall of the empire. The rising waters of the lake, however, could not be denied, and rumors persist of a secret treasure which was swallowed along with the temple.
038 Impressions038 Lozatl's Conquest

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:14.1 y:18.3
Lookout
/lookout

According to Ronkan legend, the great steps of this waterfall were carved by the giant Lozatl. Historians speculate that this mythical figure was, in fact, an early form of Talos, and likely the selfsame construct responsible for building Ronka's resplendent places of worship.
039 Impressions039 Fanow

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:29.1 y:19
Lookout
/lookout

Unfailingly loyal to the last-known commands of the Ronkan emperor, the Viis of this village have protected the ruins of Rak'tika for countless generations. With many of its sister settlements destroyed by the Flood of Light, however, Fanow faces an uncertain fate in its isolation.
040 Impressions040 The Morning Stars

In my wanderings through the Rak'tika Greatwood, I found myself pausing in wide-eyed wonder as I looked out upon the view before me. I knew that I must capture this sight in ink, lest others simply pass it by.
The Rak'tika Greatwood x:26.4 y:9.9
Lookout
/lookout

These pyramids were built to venerate the four chief deities of the Ronkan religion: Ox'Gatorl, keeper of flame; Ox'Charl, keeper of the winds; Yx'Lokwa, bringer of rain; and Yx'Anpa, bringer of the harvest. For the inhabitants of Fanow, guardians of Ronka's heritage, there are few sites more sacred.
041 Impressions041 The Ondo Cups

I have looked out upon a corner of Norvrandt that few will know, and even fewer will have visited. Yet within this secret realm hides a vista of which all must be made aware...
The Tempest x:33 y:16.2
Lookout
/lookout

Hidden at the bottom of the Tempest, this Ondo settlement was established by those few foragers who escaped the Flood's destruction of their homeland. The “Cups” has its origin in the hollows on the shore which remain filled with seawater when the tide recedes─a symbol of the Ondo's fortunate refuge.
042 Impressions042 The Workbench

I have looked out upon a corner of Norvrandt that few will know, and even fewer will have visited. Yet within this secret realm hides a vista of which all must be made aware...
The Tempest x:34.5 y:25.5
Lookout
/lookout

This facility was built by a Crystarium native─a genius artisan seeking to escape from the distractions of the outside world. Although he simply calls the place his “Workbench,” the mundane naming is at odds with the fantastical concept of a forge constructed malms beneath the ocean.
043 Impressions043 Where the Dry Return

I have looked out upon a corner of Norvrandt that few will know, and even fewer will have visited. Yet within this secret realm hides a vista of which all must be made aware...
The Tempest x:37.1 y:6.6
Lookout
/lookout

When the Ondo beheld the coral within this cavern, its crimson branches put them in mind of a land-dweller's veins─thus began the legend that it was a resting place for finless ones who had perished at sea. It was not until recently, however, that folk from the surface learned the reason behind the rather ominous-sounding name.
044 Impressions044 Purpure

I have looked out upon a corner of Norvrandt that few will know, and even fewer will have visited. Yet within this secret realm hides a vista of which all must be made aware...
The Tempest x:34.3 y:30.6
Lookout
/lookout

The Ondo use the shells they gather from this cave to make dye, the purple hue prized as a symbol of nobility. It is said that Eulmore's obsession with the color purple can be traced back to these underwater origins.
045 Impressions045 Amaurot

I have looked out upon a corner of Norvrandt that few will know, and even fewer will have visited. Yet within this secret realm hides a vista of which all must be made aware...
The Tempest x:13.7 y:36.8
Lookout
/lookout

If Ondo testimony is to be believed, this vast city simply appeared overnight. Unlike the ancient remnants which endure silently upon the sea floor, its illuminated towers are of a decidedly different nature─a meticulously new and vibrant metropolis, compelling in its mystery.
