The El Nido Triangle is a triangular section of ocean in the middle of the Aegiran Ocean.
0 - A wormhole appeared here when the Cleft was first created, which is what many believe is the reason why the triangle is cursed. It is one of the Origin Wormholes.
c100 - The statues of the Threads of Fate were first noticed on the islands.
288 - A scientific vessel from Shrike mysteriously vanishes while entering El Nido.
289 - Monotoli Inc. sends several ships to investigate the disappearance of their expensive research ship, all these ships also vanish.
It is taboo to enter the triangle. The area is considered cursed, though three statues have been erected on the three islands that form the triangle, depicting the Threads of Fate. Some of the more daring fishermen come here.
El Nido is right in the middle of the Aegiran Ocean, so it fairly close to Guardia and Fa'Diel's east coast. Hyrule's west coast, and Shadmire's north coast. One might reach the place by traversing the Aegiran Ocean just southwest of Wutai.
Various types of fish call this area their home. There are rumors of draconic Gyarados that prowl the triangle.
Law, Government, and Politics
No one governs this area.
A diver nearly perished one day as he raced to the surface of the sea for air. As his life flashed before his eyes, a fish swam around him asking him questions:
- Have you assisted the treasure divers?
- Or helped a little blue man?
- Defeated Shield Sheldon?
- Or attained a special artifact?
- Explored the frozen caverns?
The Great Explorer Luigi Says
"Moving a-round underwater is-a very slow, so Luigi cannot a-ttack as many times as he norm-ally can. Sometimes, the best-a way to explore something is-ta return later with greater knowledge of the world."
