Isle of Tears
The Isle of Tears is a relatively large island, located several miles off of the Cliffs of Fol in the Province of Mann. Mann claims the island, and the Duke maintains a strong naval presence in the island’s protected harbor, but there is little to control beyond the town of Chu. The rest of the island is mostly rock, risingly sharply to jagged mountains, and then dropping back into the oceans with the Weeping Bluffs. Almost all of the island’s residents live in the crescent shaped circle of land around Chu, and scratch out a living with substance farming and small boat fishing. Some enterprising (and fool-hardy) souls harvest the tears and sell them to interested alchemists.
The island gets its name from the Weeping Bluffs, which constantly leak a clear, slightly thicker than water substance. No known source has been found for the ‘tears’, but local legend states the Cliffs are a Godling, and witnessed Amaya escape the deep, but Arashi capture and re-imprision Aneko, and it weeps for the injustice of it.
