Aeirs
 
Work In Progress
 
Home to the might of the Mayshard and its peoples, Aeirs is one of the oldest and most well known Isles of the Bastion.
   
Climate banner
Situated in the upper brightlands, Aeirs enjoys temperate weather and a generally warm climate all year round. Fertile soil, sweeping rivers and plenty of rains mean that the Isles vast plains, hills and valleys are highly sought after locations for farming, hunting and foraging. Living here can be pretty easy going and although the Isle still has its fair share of unsightly beasts and rampant plants, the people can usually still have peace of mind knowing that one of the largest military forces this side of the Lifebringer is stationed nearby. That being said however, it has been known that in recent years the Mayshard Imperial Navy has been otherwise occupied with ever growing threats in the Boarderlands and is becoming ever more engaged with smaller skirmishes of the recent Helgan War. This occupation of forces elsewhere has allowed for more shady factions to become ever more prominent on Aeirs, and more importantly allowed for the Isles wild forestland's to become exponentially more dangerous to the Isles residents, travellers and adventurers alike.  
Geography banner
Large mountain peaks, daunting cliff faces and grand skyfalls are some of the first features to grace the eyes of travellers lucky enough to visit Aeirs via Skyship. The Isle has three distinct mountain ranges, the Glengoyne Peaks, Dalken Mountains and Duskbluff Ranges. Each with their own distinct shapes, scholars have come to the conclusion that the Isle used to be of a much grander scale and thus in the past the tall mountains would not have been near, nor looked so out of place butted right up against sheer cliff faces. Along with the ranges themselves and the shattered nature of the Isle, it becomes quickly apparent that the landscape is graced by a few things that seem less than natural. To start are the three awe inspiring floating brass obelisks that grace the sky near and within the Spirewoods. Second to catch the eye might be grand brass looking structures tucked away among the Duskbluff Ranges known as the Embergates. And finally but within more recent history, sits the immense floating mountain fortress of Daplas; the chained Isle stronghold of the Mayshard. Between some of these more alien structures, the floating mountain fortress and even more hidden wonders; the Isle of Aeirs can almost seem mystical... but to many of its people these are everyday eyesores and what some might call no more than tourist attractions.

"Yea Daplas was originally intended to be a grand trading outpost of the Mayshard so they say, providing a hub for the ever expanding Skylines and all that. Well the Navy discovered and moved the great shattered mountain closer into Aeirs many years back and with the help of the then powerful Dwarven foundries of Saberhold, chained the great ol' mammoth Isle to the mainland. It was then discovered that the strange mountain 'ad a series of strange tunnels and catacombs within its stone and earthen depths you see. After it was attached to the mainland the Isle was used for a short time as a military garrison I think, but it quickly became apparent that it was unsuitable for the military... or really any safe application of trade... and so for some strange reason it was quickly abandoned and later converted into the jail like fortress you see out there today...
