A large circular lake in the center of the plains, which is what gave them their name. Many squid and crabs can be found throughout here.
In the old ages of the cleft, a legendary italian adventurer named Luigi was one of the key explorers who mapped out the new world. Along the way he collected a vast amount of treasures. Some say he even found one of the pieces of the Triforce. Eventually he would settle in the Donut Plains and build a huge mansion to house all his treasures. His troupe of koopas helped build it and would live in the mansion as well.
This old mansion is no longer in use...at least to the living. All the mansion inhabitants were killed off when Goa invaded the Donut Plains. Rumor has it that a secret entrance allowed Luigi to escape, but these rumors are unfounded as he never returned to reclaim his mansion when the war was over, nor has he reappeared anywhere else since. Now ghosts dwell the halls of the mansion, still loyal to Luigi, and scaring away those who hope to loot his treasures.
The underground tunnels connect the Donut Plains with Tonoe. They were built largely with Luigi's help and their primary function was as a backup water system for the farmlands.
Later, the labyrinth would be used to help Fa'Diel locals take their land back from Goa. At this time, the labyrinth was damaged and the locals never repaired it because Luigi was nowhere to direct them. It is now overrun with the local wildlife.
Donut Plains is a major junction point in southern Fa'Diel. It has paths leading to various places such as Fort Walla Walla to the west and the farming village of Tonoe to the north. To the south is the Safari Zone, a refuge for wild pokemon.
The Donut Plains already had a fair population of Koopas for a while, thanks to Luigi, but they haven't truly flourished until Fort Walla Walla was built, specifically to protect the Koopas from thieves around the area at the time.
Various goombas have called these plains their home. Some fish also live in the lake.
Law, Government, and Politics
The Donut Plains are a part of the Fa'Diel Union, though the Koopa Kingdom also has some military control over the area, and much of the natural landscape is maintained by the farming village Tonoe.
A traumatized Goomba once saved himself by bribing an adventurer not to stomp him by offering these secrets:
- You should find the haunted lodge!
- And go reach the end of the pipe vault!
