Map of Ethos by Neal Pass Erickson

Ethos is the northmost landmass or island in the Arcadian Isles. It is North-East of Arcadia. It is the location of the campaign Outpost Santa Barbara.

Not much is known about this new area. Only a small area south of a mountain range has been explored. North of the mountains appears to be a vast Avocado Jungle.

According to the Sea Elves living in the waters near the island, Ethos is a land under construction by the gods. All attempts by mortals to see this construction process will be rebuffed. A side effect of this construction process is the use of rifts to the Elemental Planes. This results in elementals unwillingly appearing in the Prime Material Plane.

Ethos was invaded by the Army of Voraci during their Westward Expansion into the Arcadian Isles. The effects of this invasion are unknown. By the time of this invasion it is thought that the gods rose the land out of the sea with ancient structures far older than the land itself. Either the gods created the ancient ruins to be ancient or there is a deeper mystery.

The area around Santa Barbara is based on the geography around the real world Santa Barbara located on the West Coast of the United States of America. Neal Pass Erickson has commented that beyond this starting area, the geography will be very different from that of the real world.
