Joel Island is off of the southwestern coast of Fa'Diel. A ferry from Viorar goes there - it takes 320 miles. Ships from Goa also travel to the island, but they are limited to military personnel only.
Joel island's villagers were a mixed clan of humans and sahagins. They were all eventually transformed into zombies by the sorceress Sabera in order to maximize their utility as manual labor slaves.
The Goa military had taken control of Joel Island under the supervision of Sabera in search of a Mana Stone. The Mana Stone was never found, but the army remains simply because the island is a strategic place to hold.
Sahagins still live in the caverns of the island, relying on the fish they can catch in the caves for sustenance.
