There is not much reason to explore the Earth any longer, we have discovered all there is to find. At least that's what most people think, but Professor Donald Anderson disagreed. With the rise of meta humans he realized that it was very possible that someone thing as far fetched as a hidden island was very possible. And thus he went out, searching for the legendary Forgotten Isles. He soon vanished, assumed dead.
Several years later...
An island appeared as if from nowhere off in the middle of North Atlantic Ocean. The world at large reacted with disbelief at this land forgotten by time, and many new explorers met their end attempting to explore it.
The Land of Beasts: The Forgotten Isle is an ecosystem populated by a strange mixture of ancient creatures that once roamed the Earth and a large amount of alien beasts of unknown origin. Notably there is a large volcano in the middle of the island, and it too is full of strange monsters that are perfectly acclimated to the climate.
The Ruins of the Balatha: The ruins of the ancient people that ruled the Forgotten Isle. The ruins are covered in carving of an alien landscape and a peoples to match. The technological level in the ruins is also far beyond that of even present day humans. However these same technology is used to defend the ruins and has led to the death of many would be looters.
The Valley of Death: A strange area of an already strange land, this huge valley is full of nothing but bones and a single dark temple that stands atop them. Inside the temple's deep underground complex, there are 3 books, the Book of The Demon which is said to possess the secret of how to summon and control demonic beasts, the Book of Corruption which is said to possess the secret of a force known simply as "corruption" by the ancient builders of the temple, and the Book of Ends which is said to possess the knowledge of the death of all things.
Normal CVNU location rules apply, don't blow everything up and all that
If you want to steal anything from the Isle hit me up with a PM so I can tell you it's capabilities and defenses guarding it.
Yes this is basically a Savage Land area, and yes that means there's dinosaurs
You can have your character from this location if you want to use that gimmick. Just know that the Island was invisible until this recent year.
The Balatha are aliens, but most if not all characters should be unaware of that as they are all dead.
Have fun with the thread. :)
(There would be more pretty images, but CV wasn't having it.)
