***A great thick poison fog that has seemingly forever covered a massive area of the western sea has started to lift, curious sailors and bystanders approach on boat, shocked to find an entirely new land!!
You join the first ships of curious onlookers approaching the docks, a pretty seaport village lays before you, you gaze in awe at the gorgeous lands around you, and...wait, ABOVE YOU?! Looking up one can in fact see hundreds of floating islands, some massive, some small, all incredibly impressive and seemingly held up by nothing!
> ZOLKANIS <
Waterfalls cascade down from many of the islands, falling into shimmering freshwater lakes below. The lands underneath are vast gorgeous valleys of vibrant wildflowers and shrubbery, a few scattered trees can be seen among the rolling floral hills, in the distance your eyes fall upon the shimmering mirage like salt flats that scatter about the beautiful lands.
Flocks of gorgeous feathered beasts circle above, releasing gentle birdsong into the air, you can see now just how filled with LIFE this strange new world is. Huge horned beasts graze among the lowlands as tiny raptor-like avians perch atop their backs. It’s beautiful, and entirely new.
You’re so busy staring at what's around you that you don’t notice the small strange figure in front of you until she’s practically shouting for your attention. “Hey! There you are, jeez, I know it's pretty but it's rude not to say hello you know! Especially in the presence of divinity!” She grins at your look of confusion, a gentle laugh coming from her. “Don’t worry you’ll meet them soon!” She beams and you finally get the chance to REALLY look at her. She’s small, but very much ketucari like in scent and appearance, she almost reminds you of Danuoc, but smaller…and ketified, and very fluffy.
“Oh! I can see you staring, that’s also kinda rude you know? But I don’t mind, it's probably a lot to take in huh? Well it’s a good thing I’m here! I’m Aira! Or Ai...whichever you prefer! I’m the ambassador of this land, what land you may ask? Why Zolkanis of course!” She darts around you excitedly, seemingly filled with energy. “I’m a ketucari like you, but I was made from Danuoc, just like Ryno has made ketucari from herself, you’d be surprised how many of us are here!” She notes your look of confusion. “Oh, well, you’re probably wondering why we’re here huh?”
A look of sadness crosses her face. “A very long time ago, the wars threatened to wipe our kind from Velukaelo, so Danuoc gathered us all up and brought us here, to her best friend, the domain guardian of this zone, Igyera. They promised Danuoc that they would protect us no matter what, and then cast their poison fog in a barrier outside the land, protecting us until Danuoc felt it was safe once more for us to be free.”
She looks thoughtful. “She asked me to act as an ambassador for you all, to welcome you to these wonderful lands and answer any questions you might have about us all!!” She smiles, her tail flicking. “Follow me!! We have a huge journey ahead of us!”
Welcome to Zolkanis! The New Zone of Velukaelo, home of the danuoc build ketucari!

Their gaze lands on you and their wings stretch contentedly. “Hello stranger, welcome to our lands, you are welcome here as long as you cause no troubles.” The first head speaks, their voice soft and melodic. “Please take this gift as a show of our good faith, and please be sure to have fun and spread the word to your friends!” The second head speaks in a deeper more boisterous tone, before handing you the gift they pull from the satchel by their feet. You thank them before following Aira to the next event.
