- She is an ancient powerful goddess that is so old that she doesn't even remember her own name
- The characters can refer her as No Name, The Lost One, The Lost Goddess, The Forgotten Goddess, The Forgotten One, Nameless, Faceless, The Stricken Deity.
- She created the island because she was bored and wanted to be entertained.
- She pulls characters from all different worlds and timelines to be her playthings. Meaning she could pull Buffy Summers from somewhere in Season 3 but pull Xander Harris from a point before the show even started.
- The goddess gives each character a silver wrist cuff that becomes a hologram computer when activated. It has information about the city and island on it along with a way to post on their journal. It can do a lot of things so have fun with it.
- The goddess is usually an invisible force but now and then she will make a journal post. What she writes about? You will have to wait and see.
- The island has 11 'areas' that characters can explore: the City With No Name, the Green Vale, the Black Bog, Razoridge, Isolation Tundra, Wreck Beach, Dead Lands, the Mist Pines, the Golden Flats, the Scorched Lands, and the Floating Islands
- The technology on the island is on the same level as Earth right now.
- There are cars, motorbikes, trucks, etc in the city but they stop working the moment they reach the city limits. If you are traveling outside of the city you will have to do it on foot or by horse.
- The island is inescapable. You can fly, swim, boat to a certain distance away from the island before you're transported right back to shore.
- When characters first arrive on the island the goddess places them in the city.
- The working force of the island are faceless mannequins that can take orders but can't speak to or hurt any of the characters.
- There are books, movies, comics, TV shows like in the real world. So there is a chance that your character will see themselves in some form of entertainment.
- There is no such thing as money on the island so you just take what you need.
- Stores are always stock full of food and anything the characters might need. Well until the goddess gets bored with her playthings having it easy.
- You will find all kinds of creatures you can imagine live around the island as well as a few that mortal/sane minds could never come up with. After all, what kind of limits could a goddess have when reality is already a suggestion at best?
The City With No Name: (Grey Color)
- Think the size of New York
- But also think of a deserted New York as the mannequins don't drive unless their job calls for it.
- The city has two harbors: south and north.
- The south harbor is more industrialized and a ship port where the north harbor is more of a recreational beach that you would find in tropical destination resort.
- There are many streets leading out of the city but there two mains one, east and west, that lead through the Green Vale and the Mist Pines.
- The further one travels from the heart of the city, the fewer skyscrapers and more suburbanized dwellings can be found as well as green spaces such as community gardens and parks.
- It has an industrial area that is connected to the south harbor.
- There are buildings like police stations, fire halls and hospitals around even if they aren't staffed by actual people and the effects of entering one manned solely by mannequins can be eerie.
- Basically the City With No Name has everything a heavily populated major city would have... minus the population.
The Green Vale: (Dark Green Color. West of City With No Name.)
- It is a thick tropical rain forest.
- There is a main road, though it turns more into a path, that leads into the heart of the jungle. The road forks near the middle of the jungle. The path going west leads to the Razoridge and then the Isolation Tundra. The path leading south leads to the Black Bog.
- Along the south path you will come upon large ruins of a city that the goddess either destroyed or just made that way. Who knows with her.
- The ruins are over run with monkeys.
- Try not to get lost. There are ranger mannequins that travel through the jungle but it might take days for them to come upon you if you get lost.
The Black Bog: (Teal Green Color. South West green.)
- It's a swamp.
- The goddess suggests not to wander off of the path as there are many things that will eat a human that lives in the Black Bog.
- There is a town that is simply called Black Bog Village that is located near the south end of the swamp. It might the perfect place to get the potions ingredients you need or contract a horrible, soul consuming, poison.
- Beware of swamp snakes.
- And possible cannibals.
Razoridge: (Brown Color.)
- It's the only mountain range that the island has. Think the Rocky Mountains.
- It separates the Isolation Tundra from the rest of the island.
- There is only one main road/path through the mountains to Isolation Tundra and you have to go through the Green Vale to get to it.
- There are plenty of caves and deadly pitfalls.
- There is a good possibility that dragons live here.
- Giant Cave Spiders and other nightmare fuel definitely live here.
- Caution: rockfalls do occur.
Isolation Tundra: (White Color.)
- It's an arctic tundra that is always covered in snow.
- The temperature is usually between -10°C/14°F to -20°C/-4°F but it can and will dip to much colder temperatures.
- There is a snow resort called Snow Bunny Resort. It is the perfect snowy wonderland for the people that love playing in the snow.
- There is a possibility that you might see he abominable snowman in the woods and hills.
- There are also ranger mannequins here so if you do happen to get lost there is a chance they might come upon you.
Dead Lands: (Reddish Brown Color.)
- A land where no plants grow. It is just dirt, earth, and dust.
- It has three volcanoes called Papa, Mama, and Baby. They are all inactive at the moment but you never know with the goddess.
- If you are able to make it out to the Dead Lands because there are now real paths or roads you will come upon wonderful natural hot springs. The hot springs just might have healing abilities.
- There are tar pits and huge giant chasms. So watch your step.
- Watch out for the animals here. They tend to be big, bigger then normal, and very wild.
Wreck Beach: (Yellow Color.)
- Beautiful tropical beaches. Always sunny with a slight breeze. It's the perfect paradise for sun worshipers.
- Somewhere in the bay, the goddess likes to move it, there is a tall sunken ship that possible could have gold in it. Perfect adventure for the kind of people that like to go diving.
- Wreck Beach includes the two smaller islands north of the City With No Name.
- The water is warm and crystal clear. There is a pod of dolphins that live around the islands. They are friendly and will want to play.
- Though Wreck Beach has no towns or villages you will find make shift huts all over the place that make for the perfect place to sleep at night.
The Mist Pines: (Green Color. East of The City With No Name)
- It's a beautiful lush boreal forest dominated mostly by hardy cold weather trees like pine, fire, and spruce.
- Always seems to be filled low laying clouds or mist that gives everything a hazy view until you're close.
- It's full of playful woodland creatures. Maybe some magical ones too.
- The animals also seem to be much more cunning then normal as campers find that no matter how well placed and secure their camp is, the animals always managed to find food supplies and demolish camp sites.
- There is the main path that starts on the east side of The City With No Name that runs through the forest all the way to the Golden Flats. But it's very easy to become turned around lost in the forest so you better stay on the path.
The Golden Flats: (Light Green Color.)
- Agriculture. Plains of fields, orchards, flowers beds, vineyards, and grazing lands with isolated posts of farmsteads and windmills. There are also greats spots for fishing along the coast.
- There is a perfect lake to go fresh water fishing or swimming on a hot summer day.
- The path that comes from the Mist Pines splits in the middle of the Golden Flats. The east path leads to a small fishing town called Whale Village. The path leading north goes to a farming village called Findlater Village.
- Expect to see a lot of cows, horses, and other farm animals along the path. There is a rumor of a herd of unicorns and pegasus that roam the plains but no one has ever really gotten close enough to confirm that rumor.
- When exploring you do need to be careful about the abandoned underground coal mines. They are old and unstable and could collapse at any time.
The Scorched Lands: (Yellow Brown Color.)
- It's a blazing hot desert. It has sand for miles and miles.
- There are ruins from an old civilization located in the north part of the Scorched Lands.
- The ruins are overrun with lizards both big and small. Poisoned and friendly. Which one is which? Who knows.
- There is a large lake and oasis surrounding it located in the south. It's the one place that has lush greens in the Scorched Lands.
- All the most venomous creatures live in the Scorched Lands.
The Floating Islands: (Purple Color.)
- Three islands that are miles up in the air south of the City With No Name.
- At this time there is no way to get to them unless you can fly.
- The biggest island has a castle and town named Royal Castle. No one knows if people actually live there.
- Sometimes strange, ethereal music can be heard floating down from the islands.
- The islands are covered in beautiful fields of grass and flowers. There are small hills and even pounds and rivers.
- The islands act as a bird sanctuary for all the beautiful and strange tropical birds that never go to the main island.
