001 Impressions001 The Leveilleur Estate

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:15.6 y:8.0
Lookout
/lookout

This elegant mansion has stood for three centuries, and is a treasured example of Sharlayan's architectural heritage. For generations, it has served as the home of House Leveilleur─a noble family from which has arisen many distinguished Forum members.
002 Impressions002 Scholar's Harbor

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:11.8 y:15.8
Lookout
/lookout

Although known for its distinctively curving piers, the most prominent feature of the city's port is, without a doubt, the towering statue of Thaliak. Sharlayan's patron deity faces out towards the water, His eternal gaze watching over every vessel which arrives and departs by sea.
003 Impressions003 The Forum

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:10.8 y:6.8
Lookout
/lookout

In order to accommodate the ninety-nine members of the Forum, the seating in their assembly hall is arranged in the shape of a spiral. Viewed from above, one is reminded of the symbol emblazoned upon the Sharlayan flag─the nautilus shell that keeps the water of knowledge.
004 Impressions004 Noumenon

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:4.5 y:11.3
Lookout
/lookout

The pride of the Studium and parent institution to the Great Gubal Library, this massive collection of scrolls and tomes is the largest of its kind. Knowledge from every corner of the world is collected here, and efforts to compile the Bibliotheca Historica─the ultimate repository of wisdom─is an endeavor without end.
005 Impressions005 The Rostra

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:11.2 y:10.0
Lookout
/lookout

This building houses the assembly hall where the Forum debates Sharlayan national policy. Once a simple outdoor plaza, the Rostra would ring with heated discussion through rain, wind, and worse. Following a death by lightning strike, however, plans were drawn up for the imposing stone structure which now crowns Archons' Design.
006 Impressions006 Journey's End

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:15.1 y:9.6
Lookout
/lookout

Occupying the eastern side of Old Sharlayan, the residential district takes its name from the tale of the city's original settlers. History tells that it is upon this hill, alongside a colony of auks, where the refugees of the great flood chose to build their new homes.
007 Impressions007 Learners' Meet

As I soaked in all that Old Sharlayan had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Old Sharlayan x:3.2 y:9.0
Lookout
/lookout

This public lecture hall in Phenomenon is open to Studium pupils and Sharlayan citizens alike. When prominent professors are scheduled to take the lectern, crowds of aspiring academics and established scholars often fill the room to capacity.
008 Impressions008 Ruveydah Fibers

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:7.9 y:13.3
Lookout
/lookout

This state-sponsored workshop is famed for producing silk thread of exquisite quality. Its sericulture and weaving techniques were once jealously guarded secrets, but security measures have become lax since Ul'dah and other nations began manufacturing their own silk fabrics.
009 Impressions009 Balshahn Bazaar

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:10.7 y:9.5
Lookout
/lookout

If commerce is the lifeblood of RadzatHan, then these roofed market stalls would be its heart. Balshahn himself was a legendary merchant who made a vast fortune through trade with other nations. It was his final wish that his estate be spent on the construction of a great bazaar, ever flowing with coin and wares.
010 Impressions010 Nilopala Nourishments

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:7.7 y:14.1
Lookout
/lookout

Hamsa were originally reared for the sole purpose of harvesting their venom, until a breeder by the name of Nilopala devised a technique to remove the creatures' toxin glands. The birds suddenly became a viable source of tender, succulent meat, and, before long, Hamsa dishes were considered a staple of Hannish cuisine.
011 Impressions011 Mehryde's Meyhane

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:11.2 y:7.2
Lookout
/lookout

Owned and run by the eponymous Mehryde, this meyhane offers light meals and beverages, with the main draw being its myriad varieties of liquor distilled by local alchemists. Foreign visitors are often entranced by the stage performers, whose movements incorporate elements of traditional Thavnairian dance.
012 Impressions012 Meghaduta

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:5.1 y:13.2
Lookout
/lookout

The palace of the satrap serves not only as a residence, but also as the center of RadzatHan's government. Meaning “cloud messenger” in the old Arkasodara tongue, Meghaduta was built at the summit of a rocky megalith, its great doors admitting an endless stream of servants, petitioners, and official visitors.
013 Impressions013 Alzadaal's Peace

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:10.9 y:12.1
Lookout
/lookout

Within this mausoleum is interred the mortal remains of Alzadaal, leader of the Auri tribe which sailed to Thavnair from the mainland. By joining the might of his people with the Arkasodara, Alzadaal tipped the scales against the Gajasura, bringing an end to the internecine war of the Matanga tribes.
014 Impressions014 Ruveydah Fibers Rooftop Garden

As I soaked in all that Radz-at-Han had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Radz-at-Han x:8.0 y:13.0
Lookout
/lookout

Hidden from view atop the workshops of Ruveydah Fibers is a squat golden statue of a gaja, surrounded by a garden of mulberry bushes. Sitting upon the statue is said to bring good fortune, the proof of which is tested as one wanders about the unfenced rooftop.
015 Impressions015 The Path of Artifice

As I soaked in all that Labyrinthos had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Labyrinthos x:20.4 y:7.6
Lookout
/lookout

This massive lift is one of several which connects the surface of Old Sharlayan to the subterranean research and storage complex of Labyrinthos. At the end of its descent, the mechanism opens up onto the hub of upper Acrinthos, from where passengers or cargo continue onwards towards other facilities.
016 Impressions016 Thaumazein

As I soaked in all that Labyrinthos had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Labyrinthos x:15.0 y:25.3
Lookout
/lookout

Thaumazein, or “wonder,” is the emotion one feels at the onset of the quest for knowledge. Such a quest was begun here, in an effort to pierce the mysteries of the aetherial sea, yet what researchers encountered was the will of Hydaelyn Herself. The site became a shipyard, where they would construct an ark destined to reach the very moon.
017 Impressions017 Meryall Agronomics

As I soaked in all that Labyrinthos had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Labyrinthos x:30.8 y:18.7
Lookout
/lookout

In this experimental crop farm, researchers explore agricultural methodology and study the growth of seeds collected from various regions across the world. It is named after Meryall─one of the seven Archons instrumental in Sharlayan's foundation─whose botanical knowledge helped enrich the island's barren soils and resolve food shortages.
018 Impressions018 Troglophile's Deep

As I soaked in all that Labyrinthos had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Labyrinthos x:38.4 y:13.6
Lookout
/lookout

This cavern serves as a breeding ground for certain subterranean species deemed vital to ongoing research efforts─including a study into creating fertilizer from the subjects' phosphorous-rich excrement. Troglofauna reproduction is, however, an inexact science, routinely resulting in excessive numbers of cave-dwelling offspring spilling out into nearby habitats.
019 Impressions019 Sharlayan Hamlet

As I soaked in all that Labyrinthos had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Labyrinthos x:22.4 y:17.4
Lookout
/lookout

Located in the Central Circuit, this self-contained settlement provides housing for Forum-authorized researchers. Due to the highly confidential nature of their projects and a strictly enforced information protocol, the men and women here are rarely permitted egress to the city proper.
020 Impressions020 Yedlihmad

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:26.2 y:33.6
Lookout
/lookout

Meaning “new harbor” in a language brought to the island's shores by mainland settlers, Yedlihmad is Thavnair's main port town. Owing to the shallow waters surrounding the island, however, larger trading vessels are forced to anchor at Alnair, and ferry over to the harbor in smaller boats before making their way to RadzatHan.
021 Impressions021 Kadjaya's Footsteps

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:22.5 y:19.6
Lookout
/lookout

Known as the mother of the Kriegstanz, Kadjaya is honored in both name and form at this open-air stage for dancers. Those who carry on her legacy perform here beneath her stone-carved likeness, strutting and twirling for the glory of their gods and ancestors.
022 Impressions022 Giantsgall Grounds

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:19.9 y:6.9
Lookout
/lookout

Quarried here by the wagonload, the purple-streaked stone known as “gianstgall” is one of Thavnair's most coveted exports. Incredibly dense and possessed of high aetherial conductivity, it is prized not only as a building material, but also as a component in the crafting of unyielding arms and armor, and the brewing of alchemical concoctions.
023 Impressions023 The Shroud of the Samgha

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:29.3 y:24.9
Lookout
/lookout

Dense jungle vegetation grows wild and unchecked across a wide band of Thavnair's inland region. Amongst the trees, however, can be found a sprinkling of shrines and temples dedicated to the pantheon of locally worshipped gods─holy sites where once resided the ranks of the faithful.
024 Impressions024 The Font of Maya

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:26.5 y:24.1
Lookout
/lookout

This temple was once the abode of an order of Arkasodara ascetics who sought the divine enlightenment of maya. Abandoned for a stronghold deeper in the jungle, the structure now sits derelict and half-submerged in rainwater.
025 Impressions025 The Great Work

As I soaked in all that Thavnair had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Thavnair x:9.8 y:23.2
Lookout
/lookout

Even in Thavnair, the birthplace of alchemy, the practitioners of House Daemir are renowned for the craft of their concoctions. It was they who founded the settlement of the Great Work, and to this day, many talented alchemists choose to reside here and carry on the family's peerless endeavors.
026 Impressions026 Tertium

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:32.3 y:18.5
Lookout
/lookout

Tertium is the third station along the rail network which serves the imperial capital of Garlemald. Equipped as a dispatch yard with generators and other facilities, it was taken over and fortified by the remnants of the Ist Legion following the city's fall into ruination.
027 Impressions027 Juturna Platform G

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:29.6 y:34.1
Lookout
/lookout

This mining platform is designed to pump vast quantities of ceruleum-rich water from the icy depths of Cerulea Ingens. Six more rigs were built within the region for the same purpose, but the eruption of civil war brought all operations to a standstill.
028 Impressions028 The Runaway Train

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:29.5 y:23.3
Lookout
/lookout

A Mark XLIX passenger train was forced off the tracks by tempered soldiers as it attempted to flee the capital, its twisted bulk left to rust in the ice and snow. Only nobles, high-ranking officers, or citizens with special dispensation were permitted to ride this exclusive service.
029 Impressions029 Senaculum Imperialis

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:16.9 y:9.2
Lookout
/lookout

Once the center of government for the Republic of Garlemald, this stately building would later house the Emperor's advisory council. Within its walls, countless campaigns were planned and executed─decisions that would result in untold bloodshed, and bring ever greater prosperity to the Empire.
030 Impressions030 Regio Urbanissima

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:19.3 y:16.8
Lookout
/lookout

Here did beat the heart of the Empire─a district pulsing with political, financial, and military authority. Yet these institutions, which once sought dominion over the world, now lie in ruins. Any structure not outright destroyed in the war of succession has been torn apart, its materials cannibalized for the construction of the Tower of Babil.
031 Impressions031 Forum Solius

As I soaked in all that Garlemald had to offer, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Garlemald x:29.1 y:8.6
Lookout
/lookout

It was in this square that Emperor Solus inspected his troops before embarking upon his second campaign into the Far East. The imperial legions were ultimately successful in their subjugation of the Kingdom of Dalmasca, and officials celebrated the grand victory by transforming the parade ground into a commemorative public park.
032 Impressions032 The Cthonic Horns

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Elpis x:33.0 y:29.3
Lookout
/lookout

The researchers of this small facility are unlike their colleagues in that they seek to manifest new creations without the aid of creation magicks. Their natural breeding program pairs creatures with differing characteristics, relying purely on chance to conceive heretofore unimagined possibilities.
033 Impressions033 Metabaseos Thalassai

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Elpis x:10.1 y:13.5
Lookout
/lookout

An annex to Ktisis Hyperboreia, this facility is mainly concerned with the observation and evaluation of sea life. Although its construction appears too narrow to support such an ambitious project, the building's interior harbors six separate marine habitats, each painstakingly recreated via arcane means.
034 Impressions034 Lethe

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Elpis x:31.7 y:15.7
Lookout
/lookout

Following a process of exhaustive testing, a creation deemed unsuitable for release into the world is brought to this lake, where its life energies are magically unbound and allowed to dissipate. It is at once the most beautiful as well as the most sorrowful locale in Elpis.
035 Impressions035 Ktisis Hyperboreia

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Elpis x:14.9 y:7.2
Lookout
/lookout

The most extensive facility in Elpis, Ktisis Hyperboreia is a sprawling complex of magically simulated environs. Concepts awaiting evaluation are brought here for the last stages of observation, and, upon meeting the appropriate criteria, are finally released into the world at large.
036 Impressions036 Anagnorisis

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Elpis x:24.5 y:22.8
Lookout
/lookout

Named for an ancient word meaning “recognition” or “discovery,” this settlement houses those whose job it is to assess the creations admitted to Ktisis Hyperboreia. These observers study every aspect of their charges, and determine if a concept will add to─or detract from─the environ for which it was designed.
037 Impressions037 Kydonia Knolls

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Mare Lamentorum x:11.3 y:22.0
Lookout
/lookout

This lifelike face of enormous scale appears to peek out from the surface of Mare Lamentorum. Obviously no natural formation, it is nevertheless unknown who carved this piece, or indeed, whose features it is meant to resemble. One thing is certain: the model would not find the depiction particularly flattering.
038 Impressions038 The Carrotorium

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Mare Lamentorum x:7.3 y:6.1
Lookout
/lookout

This district was specifically designed to sustain the continued existence of mankind, and, more importantly, as a wonderful place to cultivate the miraculous orange vegetables known as carrots. Because let's face it: any trial or trouble becomes easier to bear when one holds a carrot in one's paw.
039 Impressions039 Greatest Endsvale

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Mare Lamentorum x:35.9 y:9.3
Lookout
/lookout

The architect of this district envisioned an ideal forest─a place where the new residents of the moon could sit or wander amidst arboreal splendor. The fact that it resembles a forest in only the most abstract sense of the word detracts somewhat from the intended effect. Well, it's the thought that counts...
040 Impressions040 Heimdall's Last Sight

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Mare Lamentorum x:34.3 y:29.4
Lookout
/lookout

The ancient Allagans launched this Heimdall-class vessel into the heavens to monitor Bahamut's prison, Dalamud. When that colossal satellite awakened around the time of the Seventh Umbral Calamity, the observation craft was shot down as it attempted to halt the activation process.
041 Impressions041 The Watcher's Palace

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Mare Lamentorum x:13.5 y:32.6
Lookout
/lookout

A structure of enduring design, this brooding tower stands resolute in its vigil of untold millennia. The aetherially conductive plate encircling its spires is reminiscent of a certain architectural style, one found only in the depths of the ocean on the First...
042 Impressions042 Stigma-1

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Ultima Thule x:32.6 y:29.9
Lookout
/lookout

The prime decision-making authority for an entire machine civilization, this mechanism has been faithfully reconstructed in Ostrakon Deka-hexi. Originally hailed as strategic matrix Alpha-1, catastrophic damage inflicted upon its systems resulted in its currently assigned designation.
043 Impressions043 Ostrakon Deka-hexi

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Ultima Thule x:33.6 y:26.8
Lookout
/lookout

This sector is a recreation of the sixteenth civilization encountered by Meteion and her sisters. Although definitive answers remain elusive, it is speculated that the reconstruction echoes the Alphatron Star as it appeared in its last years, or perhaps even an Omicron outpost built upon an invaded world.
044 Impressions044 Ostrakon Tria

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Ultima Thule x:18.7 y:13.7
Lookout
/lookout

This sector is a recreation of the third civilization encountered by Meteion and her sisters. Known collectively as the “Ea,” the entities which reside here have cast off their corporeal shells and endure eternally in purely spiritual form. An awareness of the universe's inevitable end, however, has blighted their immortal gift with existential misery.
045 Impressions045 Ostrakon Deka-okto

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Ultima Thule x:8.9 y:18.1
Lookout
/lookout

This sector is a recreation of the eighteenth civilization encountered by Meteion and her sisters. Ruined and desolate, the world it represents was once the abode of a proud race of dragons who were driven to extinction in a titanic struggle against mechanical invaders from the Alphatron Star.
046 Impressions046 Ostrakon Hena

As I soaked in all that lay at the end of Dawn's journey, I found my gaze drawn in one particular direction. Entranced, I reached for my quill and parchment...
Ultima Thule x:23.0 y:27.2
Lookout
/lookout

This sector is a recreation of the first civilization encountered by Meteion and her sisters. The structures are whole, but hauntingly empty─as if all life had come to an abrupt end.
