Red-Wire Crags

(Legacy Content)
The Red-Wire Crags refers to a large stretch of mountainous land in western Gjalvalore, under which lies the Red-Wire supervolcano. The location gets its name from the red colored fissures that span across the area, which occasionally leak molten rock onto the surface. Geologists have long since argued as to the real danger of this phenomena, since some of the pressure is being vented constantly and consistently. However, this does not stop rumors from circulating about its destructive potential, ranging from capable of reducing the nearby cities and towns to ashen ruins to potentially world ending, though evidence collected on the area would suggest the latter rather than the former.


The general topography of the Red-Wire Crags is composed of rough, jagged rock formations spaced around the ground fissures, oftentimes leading to these fissures repeatedly covering and exposing themselves during their periodic activities. The crags are bordered by the Tygon Strait to the west, the Centuran Ocean to the north, Cagrosan Sea to the south, and the Misted-Hollow to the east.

Fauna & Flora

All manner of mountain-dwelling creatures make their residence here, from mountain goats, to the exotic Vori-Yon, and even one of the stalwart strongholds of of the Dellvo-kin, Yonvosen. Curiously, there had been a strange outbreak of Hemalilia in the mid Second Era, the cause of which seeming to have been some manner of flying creature infected with Blood Fever travelling to the crags and dying, resulting in an invasive outbreak, although it did not last longer than a decade at most.

Natural Resources

Most natural resources in this area are the result of the brave souls residing within Yonvosen, producing a vast quantity of the world's gemstones and standard ores. It is also believed that the largest "known" supply of Titanoshulate base materials is located beneath the crags, though this has yet to of been confirmed. What is known is that Yonvosen is one of the largest exporters of Titanoshulate in the world, though even that is not saying much since the material is so rare that pounds of it are the only amount that has ever been exported at once.

As with every writing endeavor, I would deeply appreciate constructive feedback, be it in the form of grammar corrections, naming ideas (which I have the most trouble with), or general questions or feedback about the world or anything within it. I thank you for your dedication of time to reading this article.

Hey, I like the idea of this place a lot! I can picture it in my head already, and it truly sounds like a dangerous and intimidating place. Though, you should try presenting it a bit more pretty. Try using the side bar, using quotes (always good to break up information into digestible pieces), and try making a map. Even if it's just a lazy paint-graphic showing the locations in relation to each other - you can always come back to it later and re-draw it. ^^

I appreciate the feedback! I'll see what I can do to fix things up with the text when I next get a moment to work on it. As for maps - this might just be me - but I'm holding myself back until Deios comes out so I can throw all of what I have in at once (though a temporary one would still be nice admittedly). Thank you for the comment!
