CYOA Welcome to the world of Arcadia. A land where mankind dwells on floating islands both great and small. Here, people travel between the lands on flying air ships, whether for trade, exploration, or even piracy. Under the six elemental moons, the world flourishes in an age of discovery and exploration. Technology is advancing rapidly and new lands are being discovered, but along with progress comes abuse, and a cold war plagues the greatest nations of Arcadia. Whether you seek excitement or wealth, there unlimited opportunities here in Arcadia. Use your 1000cp wisely, or blow it on junk and earn everything all on your own.

Location Roll 1d8 for starting location or pay 100cp to choose . In Arcadia, not all of the continents are in contact with one another , and great sky rifts and reefs block travel between some lands for all but the bravest and craftiest sailors. 1. Silver Islands You start your adventure on one of the small, scattered islands beneath the Silver Moon in Mid-Ocean. No large landmasses lie beneath the Silver Moon, and what few tiny communities exist largely subsist on fishing or the gathering of rare silver moon stones. Other seemingly innocent towns have turned to piracy, like the settlement of Windmill Isle, raiding military or merchant vessels that sail through the sky with impunity. There's no central government to rule over the silver islands, and the largest nearby town is the trading pier of Sailor's Island, which sits where the lands of the Silver , Red, and Yellow moons meet. 2. Nasr Your adventure begins under the light of the Red Moon. Here, vast continents of sand and stone burn under the baking heat. This land is ruled by Nasultanate of Nasr , a prosperous empire of great military and economic might. The land is as harsh as they come, but there is much wealth to found here, and vast cities such as Nasrad see massive amounts of trade . Nasr is at war with with the nation of Valua, a conflict that has spanned decades. Yet due to the sky reefs that surround this land and the deadly North Dannel Strait, the military has grown complacent, and the rulership of the Nasultan is decadent. 3. Valua Beneath the Yellow Moon, Valua broods. A vast, dark continent pocked with craters and always covered in angry storm clouds, Valua is a foreboding place . The Empress Teodora I is no less threatening, and she rules her empire with an iron grip. Valua is the single most powerful nation militarily, sailing through the skies in great ships of iron and steel instead of wood, fueled by the electricity generated by the valuable yellow moon stones. This dominance comes at price, and Valua suffers f rom a painful shortage on moon stones, the vicious wars fought by the Armada burning through what little remains of their fuel as they search for more . Despite the glittering buildings and trains of the noble quarter , the capital of Valua, and the nation at large, is heavily stratified. The wealthy live in unprecedented splendor while the poor are some of the most miserable and downtrodden in all of Arcadia, subsisting on garbage and little else as they toil in soul-crushing despair .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
