Sights

Martha's Bay

It's a pretty bay that has a lighthouse at it's end.

Abandoned Mines

These mines were originally used by the villagers to dig for gems. They were later utilized by Goa to dig for the Mana Stone of Water.

Glowing Corridors

Some parts of the caverns in Joel are illuminated by plants that glow in the dark. Pretty.

Imperial Fortress

The imperial fortress is a historical building, but is once again occupied by a military.

Travel

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.

Inhabitants

Villagers

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.

Goa

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.

Sahagin

Sahagins still live in the caverns of the island, relying on the fish they can catch in the caves for sustenance.

Law, Government, and Politics

Joel Island is currently a colony of the Goan Empire.

Quests

A Goan scout rushed through the island, eager to finish his task before his cruel superiors would saddle him with other chores like:

- Finish THE CURSE ON JOEL ISLAND!

- Finish THE RESISTANCE!

- Help a lost child!

- Reconstruct an artifact!
