Eidolons has officially opened its door to the public! Welcome one and all!
We encourage that people take part and add onto the plot.
We welcome any questions, suggestions and feedback you guys might have.
As a character in this world, you hold the power to shift the game.
Will you become a Summoner — risking your life to save the world?
Will you become a Guardian — tasked with the protection of those in
search of ancient beasts of lore? Will you stand in their way and
ensure that the Eidolons never return to Gaia? Or will you simply
stand on the sidelines, either hoping for the best or simply
minding your own business?
To honor the ones who have chosen (and succeeded) in becoming
Summoners and Guardians, the Maesters are throwing a large festival.
The festival is held in the town of Basel. Everyone from all over
Gaia is invited to participate and honor those willing to sacrifice
themselves in order to bring the Eidolons back and restore balance to
the decaying lands of Gaia. The festival will feature various treats,
such as a fireworks event as the clock strikes midnight, several
concerts, various games and shows and even a parade:
The sun sits high on the sky as people from all over Gaia start
pouring through the town gates. The town itself is draped in
flapping banners of all colors and the market is lined up with
various stalls, merchants calling out to any passerby unlucky
enough to look in their direction and the sound of music can be
heard from the festival area. The festival area itself is decorated
with flowers and banners, their motives resembling the old Eidolons,
Shiva, Bahamut, Leviathan, Titan, Ramuh and Ifrit.
The Grand Maester steps onto the stage lined in the middle of the festival
area and silence falls over the crowd, "Welcome one, welcome all," the Grand
Maester calls out. People gather around the stage and some start clapping
and some start cheering. "Let us all take a moment of silence to honor
those willing to put Gaia before themselves." The Grand Maester looks out
over the crowd and nods as the crowd goes silent. Moments pass before
the Grand Maester speaks once more, "To the summoners. To their guardians.
"To Gaia." The crowd cheers back.
"Let us not waste our blessings," the Grand Maester continues as the crowd
settles. "Enjoy, Gaians." One single firework shoots towards the sky and
explodes with radiant colors ranging from blues to reds, to greens and purples,
signaling that the festival has begun.

The data center is the area of the site where all the juicy plotting happens — at least, on site plotting. here you can put up your plot pages, make a list of all your wanted characters: does your character need a handmaiden? a loyal friend? an enemy that sucks your character's soul dry — or maybe a past lover? well, what better way to ask for one than making a wanted character request? you can also find the site's claims here.
The Mognet was originally founded as a mail delivery system between moogles. Moogles would send and receive letters to and from moogles in other locations, and then deliver them to whomever the letters are adressed to. While it's still mainly a moogle run business, it has been more and more commonly used among the entire population of Gaia.
This area of the site is mainly reserved for advertisements and old threads; you can also find retired character extras in here, since we don't delete any threads, trackers, plot pages and the like. as for advertisements: we're guest friendly and expect your site to be the same. do not post your ad here if your site requires us to make an account, log into a guest account, type in a password or say that we're eighteen to link back.
Most of Northern Gaia lies alongside the white banks of the northern sea and is mostly made up of sand, dunes, rivers, lakes and a few spots of grass. The climate is much warmer here than anywhere else in Gaia, the air is warm and damp and where the sand ends, there's a blue ocean with fishing boats as far as the eye can see. Northern Gaia stands for most of the fishing and transportation that goes around in Gaia.
Forests, lakes and luscious fields as far as the eye can see pretty much makes up all of Eastern Gaia. It hosts an unique wildlife and is a popular location for breeding and raising chocobos. A lake tapers off into a wide shallow forest thicket with protruding trees, full of small little creatures - most of which are prone to biting. Hard to navigate without small flat boats, some areas have thin wooden walkways spidering through the groves. Visibility is low, in the water and under the trees, like an eternal dusk.
Southern Gaia is flatter than the other regions and has more forests and swamps. The entire area is surrounded by large and dark forests and endless marches that one could easily get lost in. A thin fog has settled over the region and doesn't ever really seem to go away. The further in one goes, the thicker the fog seems to grow. Southern Gaia houses a variety of plant life that can't be found anywhere else, most of which is used for herbalism and medicine.
Western Gaia is made entirely from mountains, steep cliffs and stone as far as the eye can see. A lot of tall and old trees are scattered about the mountains og Western Gaia. There are tunnels that spreads underneath all the stone and where one tunnel end, a cave begins. Traveling through the mountains and tunnels without a Chocobo is hard, but not quite impossible. It just takes longer. A lot longer. Besides, some people claim the mountains are hunted. And filled with fiends.
