Bravo - Fanmap made by McTacky

Bravo, also known as Arcadia East, it is a small landmass (234 miles long, 164 miles wide) in the Arcadian Isles. It is to the south-east of the main Arcadia island, 5-12 days by boat away. The island of Bravo is referred to by its locals as "Arcadia" due to centuries of isolation.

Before the Breaking of Arcadia (known locally as "When the storms came and the mountains rose"), the island was far more flat and hospitable (see the Ancient Bravo page for more details). Following the Breaking, a tsunami covered the land, and mountains magically rose up. Jungles and swamps developed. Old settlements were abandoned, and the survivors resettled.

Most people on the island don't use currency, except when trading with the dwarven holds.
