    Inktober Event

    Post by Sen on Mon Oct 01, 2018 6:39 am

    Inktober Event










    Hello, OPNW community. We're finally in the spooky month of October. Since I like this month a lot I'll include a nice set of events for ya'll to participate in.

    Forum Creation Part II

    Island Summaries
    For the first event of Inktober were going to continue with the previous event: Island Summary Topics. As most of you could see. When you click on an island forum some of them don't even have an Island Summary Topic. So as part of this event, I encourage you all to create an island summary for x island that doesn't have any topic. If it is a canon island you are more than welcome to use One Piece Wikia to make your island description much more easier to place in context. Note, not all canon islands have thorough descriptions so get creative and expand on the idea. If the island isn't canon just get creative with it. If you guys need help just look at other island summaries that have already been created as a prime example for instance this one. Like the previous event, I will be using this grading scale (below) to determine your earning amount.


    Grading Scale:
    Low Quality - Vague contribution. Lack of creativity. More detailed information could've been included.  
    Mid Quality - Intermediate contribution. Looks somewhat good in terms of writing and creativity. Contains reference or direct input from One Piece Wikia. With all this said they could be better.
    High Quality - Adept contribution. Well-written and very creative.



    Here is the template for you to copy/paste for the Island Summary Topics:

    Code:
    [size=24][b](Insert Island Name Here) Summary[/b][/size]

    [b]General Info[/b]: Give a brief description of the island. Wildlife etc etc...

    [hr]

    [b]Appearance[/b]: What is the size of this island or archipelago? What shape does it have? How's the overall view?

    [b]Climate[/b]: What is the climate like?

    [b]Notable NPC(s)[/b]: Who are the notable NPCs of the island, country, or archipelago? Example  King Ruffus: King of Ruffle kingdom, Sion: Notorious bandit of the badlands.

    [b]Groups[/b]: What organizations exist on this island? Be sure you define them. (i.e Revolutionaries: A group of people gathered together to overthrow the World Government per say.)

    [b]Vicinity[/b]: What places exist on the island? Be sure you define them. (i.e Mock Town: A town run by crooks often visited by troublesome pirates and secretly one of the many gateways which mafia from the Underworld make their deals.)


    Note: Island Challenges are up to your own discretion to implement in the summary. It simply makes the island much more fun. Anyway, write away to your heart's content! :Brook:

    Non-Role Playing Characters for OPNW Databook
    I'm sure you guys have taken a glance at our databook here. As you guys can see, it is rather empty we don't have much. Well, basically our aim is to fill it up with NPCs who are going to be part of our OPNW World. In which our Journalist and staff use to orchestrate the events which take place in it. Here are the positions we need NPCs for at the moment.

    In Need Listing:

    • Commander-In-Chief
    • Fleet Admiral (Preferably a male since we have three female admirals)
    • Vice Admirals
    • Shichibukai
    • The Underworld (Crooks)

    Please take in mind that these NPCs are crucial and thus we expect at least a good paragraph with the background of the said NPC. Here is the NPC template below:
    Code:
    [b]Affiliation[/b]:
    [b]Name[/b]: Name of the NPC
    [b]Nickname[/b]: If they have one. If not but N/A here.
    [b]Position[/b]: Position within their faction.
    [b]Devil Fruit[/b]: What devil fruit do they have? If none simply input N/A here.
    [b]Haki[/b]: What forms of Haki could they use? Place N/A if they can't.
    [b]Information[/b]: Brief information on them. Who are they? What have they done? How did they rise up the ranks?
    Reply with all your submissions on this thread.
    Note: Not all NPCs are going to be approved to be placed on the list. The staff will review them and pick the best ones that fill the slot. All participants will be rewarded however those who got selected will earn that extra umph.

    Make Halloween Memorable

    Give Us A Spook!
    I want you guys to create island summary topic with a strong Halloween theme. It may be huge, small, populated, abandoned, or anything in between. Any cultural approach to the holiday is acceptable. You may make the description as short as you like, but the more detailed you are, the better. Describe the NPC's that reside there as briefly as possible; major NPCs may be afforded a bit more detail. Use the island summary topic template from up above and post your submission for this island here. The winner with the best island summary will be announced on October 31st (Halloween). The island will become a permanent addition to our RP Area.

    Treat!
    In the spirit of the holiday, all Halloween themed storylines be awarded plenty of treats! Meaning some unique items, more SD, and beli. That about sums it up for all the events in Inktober. Let that ink flourish and write away!

    Let Us Be Known!
    As you know our community is small at the moment but were gradually growing in a day by day basis. So, I encourage you all to advertise our forum throughout the web. Look at this topic here to use our advertisement posts. Reply on this thread with the link(s) of the site you advertised us at. Rewards for doing so is strictly based on beli. The more you advertise the merrier.  

    Deadline for all events is on 11/06/18!

    Monopolis Summary

    General Info: A constantly growing island, if you could call it that. Monopolis prides itself on being an urban island, building further and further out with a new layer of concrete and mortar every year the bigger the population gets. On each tier of the island, different levels of economic prosperity can be found, though you may easily find yourself going from the highest tier to the bottom if you do not spend your money right.

    Upon entering the island, one can find the built in infrastructure of a constantly growing populace living in artificial lighting and several mechanical wonders that control the climate. Even within the different layers of the giant island, calling itself one big city, different walls leading in to the center of the island, can be found, where the way of life becomes slightly more comfortable while getting in to the Economic Elevator.

    The island is known for having a host of flora and fauna from several islands across the first half of the Grand Line, using these to make a wide market and different chances for people to work and make products to sell off at exorbitant prices. The people of the island are wary of marines, hoping that there are some good ones out there, fearful of pirates, especially those that have had to end their journey on Monopolis, and entirely reliant on the Kings of Commerce.

    The island is home to roughly ten million people currently. Originally, when the tower was not a thing, Log Poses took three days to get their point for the next island. Now, someone has managed to find a way to disturb the magnetic field of the island and prolong any log pose to take twenty-eight days.

    The most notable part of the island is the hectic culture of economy being a major point for the island. While the Kings of Commerce control the prices of each others' districts, they maintain that no one should ever find the monetary wealth to improve for long. As such, things like a loaf of bread, freshly baked, could sell for ten beli one day. But, three days later, costs as much as three hundred thousand Beli, for one, simple, loaf of bread. Everything is a necessity, no matter the cost.




    Appearance: No one is really sure how big the island is on the inside, its long since been overtaken by the perfect hexagonal monolith of the island's current outer shell. The base of the island is roughly 6,000 square miles, allowing it to stand on top of the small islands buried beneath the concrete surface. The tower itself stands at the very center of the island, and is currently 5,000 square miles from each end of the outer shell of the island. From the tower, several tiers pointing upwards go up higher and higher. The first tier, being 5 thousand square miles, goes up for a mile, before the next tier sticks out from that. The second tier of the island is 4 thousand square miles, going up for one more mile. The third mile high tier stretches for three thousand square miles. The second highest rests another mile high and at two thousand square miles. The highest and most prestigious mile high tier of the island is only one thousand square miles.

    Climate: Half of the year is high wave storms while the other half is calm and placid waters. Inside of the island's exterior the weather is artificial, with different sectors being given different climates based on the effort they put in for the island's economy.

    Notable NPC(s):
    Lily Belle - King of Commerce, Food district. A rather curt and callous woman who would sooner watch those who ask for food for the poor eat poison and give their own meals to the poor than feed them herself.
    Boris Brock- King of Commerce, Security district. A man that believes in the mercenary mindset. Whoever has the most money is in the right, and can afford the services to protect their business, or heavily patrol and search another to put it out of business. He does have some honor though for those that show strength above money.
    Steele Irons - King of Commerce, Building/Port district. Born from a joining of two former rulers of the island, mashing the two forms of economy together, Steele handles oversight of the island's further repairs and construction, while also being the one to oversee the port system and storage of all of the ships that come to stay at the island.
    Xavier Vene - King of Commerce, Pleasure district. A gaunt man with a languid movement, many speculate his lanky appearance is from being the combination of a long-leg and a long-arm in lineage, though he never has revealed with all of the thick suits, robes and kimonos that he wears. He handles the leisure costs of the people, things like casinos, spas, libraries and the like.
    Nikole Staunch - King of Commerce, Banking district. Someone has to handle the money of this place, who better then Nikole, someone who has a majority share in every bank on the island and controls where the money flows. Some believe her to be the head of the five kings, despite their claims that they are all equal to one another and just handling the money as the island needs.

    Groups:
    Marines - the main marine force on the island are in the pocket of the Security District, and self serve themselves a nice post while lending a hand and boosting the bounty of anyone that someone else is happy to pay a bribe to make said bounty for, if only to line the payer's pockets later.

    Kings of Commerce - The five heads of the island who live at the very top of the island communally. They are the ones that hold the majority shares of the islands in their pockets, bidding and taking from another whenever they get the chance. They each run their own specific district of the island, making sure that when one business sector is doing too well financially, to lower their prices to get more business for themselves. The whole island is like a game board to them.

    Food District Elites - The personal militia of highly trained soldiers with a rather unconventional fighting style. The Belle family bank rolls them to give them their allegiances and they protect their leader while serving as assassins that specialize in toxins when the time calls for them. Four Head Chefs, twelve Sous Chefs, as they call their ranks. Roughly eighty strong.

    Security District Detail - Run like a militant police force, these are the main enforcers of the island, working to serve whoever will pay them the most. There is often in fighting with their five hundred thousand strong police force, due to conflict of interests of people paying them to protect one business, while another unit is paid to heavily police and keep it from getting business. They are lead by seven elite enforcers that call themselves The Virtues.

    Building/Port District Workers - At roughly ten percent of the island's population, these people work and defend themselves from roving pirates looking to steal from them to try and save up money to get off the island, they are also trained to keep people from getting away without paying. There are no special forces within this force, but you would be hard pressed to find one among them that would allow themselves to be beaten by a single blow.

    Pleasure District Furies - Every head of a casino, spa, library, hospital, what have you, totaling 300, is trained to defend their place, to keep it from being ransacked from ne'er-do-wells or other enforcers from another Commerce District, in order to keep their income safe.

    Banking District Loansharks - A rather menacing name for people that specialize in no forms of combat, but are more than happy to take some extra money from their pockets and throw it to the crowd with a promise of bonuses for anyone that gets rid of anyone that disturbs them. One hundred Loansharks stalk the island in green suits.

    Vicinity:
    Port Points - The six angles of the island allow anyone to dock in to them, with canals that lead up to closed off cubbies that hold one ship each. A four level system that allows the ship to be safely stored while the occupants of the ship are taken further in to the island and given the chance to enter in tot he island while their log pose gets the magnetic point for the next island.
    Fifth Tier - The first major tier of the island, with no discernible towns or villages, just one giant series of ten rings that get smaller the closer to the center of the island you get. This tier is known to be the slums on the first eight outer rings, with the other two being lower working class. This tier is home to most of the processing and construction plants. Six banks can be found here, but only as close tot he Economic Elevator as possible.
    Fourth Tier - Farms, delivery services, low class libraries and the first few hospitals can be found anywhere in these eight hexagonal rings. Blue collar workers mostly work here, with six banks here as well, but closer to a quarter of the way out from the Economic Elevator.
    Third Tier - Here you can find the middle class, they travel anywhere from the second to fifth tier to the second tier for their work. Casinos can be found here, challenging anyone to try their luck and win big, or lose it all. Other large businesses such as grocery chains and leisure enjoyments such as spas can be found here.
    Second Tier - The upper class, these people rarely ever go below to the Third Tier, let alone anywhere lower. They enjoy their lives of owning parts of the other businesses below and constantly taking in money to constantly improve their lives of luxury, though, several casinos are on this tier, tempting dozens to waste their fortune on the chance to ever get to the first tier, though no one has been able to yet.
    First Tier - The smallest populated tier out of all, and the smallest in size. Large houses and mansions can be found here, with the better ones being built higher and away from the Economic Elevator. The Kings of Commerce live up here. These people do not work at all. Family, friends, and friends of family can be found here related to the Kings of Commerce. They let everyone believe that they have the chance to make it up to this Tier, no one has ever made it to the highest level of Economic Worth.
    Economic Elevator - Only those approved for work may use these unless someone has a proof of improvement. There are dozens of elevators that run up and down every hour of the day on each tier. There are also express elevators for anyone that does not want to go to a lower tier, only to be 'escorted' by the authorities. Hijacking or using these without permission is a punishable offense by tacking on a multiplier to all of your costs.

    Island challenges:
    Dine and Ditch - Are you brave enough to last here and make your way off of the island without paying for it? Give it a try, see how many of the people cheer for you. Sure, they might have hope that you could make it, but, when a large number of the island would be out to keep you from escaping, you would be branded a criminal by the marines on your way out if you weren't already! be ready for a hard fight!

    Stock Crash - Do you want to set some things right with the island? Maybe you want to kill one of the Kings. Maybe you want to overthrow the entire system and Robin Hood the whole island, good luck. This one will turn an entire island against you at first, with many people not knowing what to do, and the gap left by any of the Kings will surely be filled with a family member within two months! Still, you're welcome to upset the economy of the island long enough that the shock could get you a quick escape.

    Pocket Liner - Tempted to be a corrupt marine? Wanting to swindle the money out of a hard worker's chance at a loaf of bread? Manipulate the island your own way and don't get caught. Surely, a Loanshark would catch on to you, and report you to every authority that they can. Earn those Beli fast and legally buy your way off of the island.

    North Blue:
    Notice Summary:
    Notice Summary

    General Info:Notice is an island known for its stability above all other things. Many new families from the Grand Line will flock towards the North Blue in hopes of finding a more peaceful life. Three cities live in harmony with one another, spread out over the wide, plain land mass. To those well versed in the island's history however, it's clear their solace is a flimsy facade.




    Appearance: Notice is a very large island composed mostly of flatlands, but punctuated by a few grassy hills. Though considered a single island, it's actually bisected by a saltwater river running through it.

    Climate: Generally much warmer than most islands in the same vicinity, Notice's pleasant climate is one of its famous calling cards. It follows the typical seasonal patterns in moderation. Its lack of harsh weather has become something of an anomaly for meteorologists.

    Notable NPC(s): Mayor of Scale Town: Wednesday Sticker. The most successful fisherman in Scale Town is given the opportunity to become mayor, and Wednesday has held her title for nearly four years. She runs the smallest city, centered around the middle of the saltwater river, but doesn't have much of a mind for policy.

    Mayor of Patternalia: Raymond Diggs. Named for its booming textile industry, Raymond's campaigns have kept him in Patternalia's office for well over twenty years. He drives much of the island's economic might, and has a bit of a superiority complex compared to his fellow mayors.

    Mayor of Streamside: Patrick Mason. A family man who runs the coastal city of the island. He's been the democratically elected mayor for a few years, and is married to the Marine Captain of the island. He can be very belligerent and ruthless, which is apt, considering his city houses the islands's prison.

    The Gardener; Alistair Cross. Captain of the 122nd Marine Branch. Husband to Mayor Mason, he's probably a bit stronger than the average Blues Captain, but requested the posting for the sake of his son and spouse. He's an incredibly pleasant man, and is the most well-liked figure on Notice.

    Dorothy "Gumball" McQueen: Leader of the Toybox Gang. She has a passion for street art, and much of her gang's complicated graffiti pieces are actually kept by townspeople, because they think the pieces carry so much character, much to Dorothy's chagrin.

    Austin Strand: Librarian housed in Patternalia. He's very reserved and well educated, but certain conspiracies retain that he's the leader of the revolutionary sect, The Whitecaps.

    Groups: 122nd Marine Branch: "The Sunflowers" are a lackadaisical bunch of marines that are largely decentralized from the headquarters on Notice. The marines are known to protect the smiles on their citizens' faces even in times of deep crisis.

    Fisherman Guild: Based in Scale Town, the guild is famous for its unorthodox fishing tactics. Instead of using tools, fisherman are expected to dive into the saltwater and wrestle their catch out of the river and onto dry land. Every other week, there is a competition to see who can pull the greatest catch in a single day.

    Toybox Gang: A long-standing criminal element runs a slum hidden away on the island. The group is mostly made up of angsty teenagers and bored young adults. Their criminal activities mostly consist of graffiti. They're not considered very dangerous, and when caught are normally just given a slap on the wrist.

    Whitecaps: Many consider this band of revolutionaries to be a myth. However, the group is very real and consists of clandestine members from across the island. Their ultimate goal is to convert the entire island into a revolutionary party that ousts the 'overbearing' presence of the World Government on their island.

    Vicinity: Scale Town: A festival city and the least populated of the three. However, its sprawling size makes it perfect to house the regular fishing tournaments, which attract hungry visitors from across the island. Its situated on the center of the island, encompassing both sides of the river. Wooden bridges connect both sides of the town, and are the perfect place for fishermen to jump from.

    Patternalia: The economic powerhouse of Notice. Its textile industry and fashion designing is the envy of the West Blue, and their exports make the town somewhat famous. Patternalia is situated around a large hill, with buildings clinging to the side and built up from the foot of the point.

    Streamside: Housing both the 122nd Marine Branch and the Lighthouse Prison, Streamside is a bit less festive than its counterparts. The Lighthouse Prison is hardly filled, as any serious criminals are picked up by greater marine elements and taken to more serious prisons. Marines can often be found helping out around the town, and hardly ever carry weapons, instead are more likely to be repairing houses and spending time with citizens. This town houses the only official docks on the island, and each entry is greeted by a small squadron of marines.

    Toybox Slums: Hidden away from the three cities, the slums are a series of tents and loose wooden structures in which children can spend time with one another. They're often left food and building materials by marines to ensure no one is actually going hungry. A derelict baseball field stands not too far from the encampment.

    Leather Bound Library: A large stone structure in Patternalia and considered the greatest library on the island. Secretly, its basement is the meeting place for the senior members of the Whitecaps.
    Path I:
    Karakuri Summary:

    Karakuri Island Summary

    General Info: Karakuri Island is a Winter island most famous for housing the Future Land Baldimore and having been the birthplace for many famous scientists. Over the past few decades, it has existed as a mecca for scientists of any field to make a visit before starting their career. However, this dangerous advancement showed signs of disaster recently.

    A robotics designer haphazardly constructed a series of cyborgs meant to replace the natural wildlife of the island, and he succeeded to an extent no one could have predicted. The World Government has now surrounded the island and forbidden any and all egress until the cyborgs can be stopped, though they don't seem to concerned with actually fixing the problem.

    The Future Land of Baldimore had done away with all of their technology, instead resorting to simple weapons and tools in an effort to exterminate the cyborg pest and free their island from its terror. Until they're successfully, the people starve as their natural resources are strangled by the robots and the cold, making for an unbearable period in their lifestyle.




    Appearance: Karakuri Island is a land perpetually blanketed in snow and sleet. Its silhouette is punctuated by a large, frozen structure and a series of hills. Despite its great scientific advancement, the island is relatively small, with a single large metropolis making up the Future Land of Baldimore.

    Climate: Karakuri is an especially harsh Winter Island. Newcomers must come prepared, or face the very deadly reality of the impending chill.

    Notable NPC(s): President Faustine Fabier: Faustine's scientific policies have been largely blamed for the current problems on Kara. In an effort to attract tourists to the island, she permitted radical scientific testing that resulted in the cyborg epidemic. Despite this, she's still begrudgingly treated as the country's leader.

    Ivo Root: The scientist whose experiments caused the cyborg epidemic has gone incognito, but it's believed he hides within the confines of Baldimore somewhere. He's an eccentric and clumsy scientist that rightfully fears persecution for his mistakes.

    Leon Barracka: The Marine captain in charge of the quarantine around Karakuri. He personally mans one of the two ships which encircle Karakuri. They're technically permitted to allow people to enter into the island, but anything trying to leave is to be blown to smithereens on his command, and he won't hesitate.

    Groups: 212th Marine Branch: The marines assigned to halt any attempted exit from the island of Karakuri. Many of them feel conflicted about trapping people on the island, but until they receive orders to take other action, they're stuck just keeping watch.

    Science Guild: Normally revered and well respected, scientists in general don't have the greatest reputation, considering it was one of their own that has led to this calamity. For the most part, they wish to use their technology to help fix the problem, but such suggestions have been shot down at every turn by the President.

    Cyborgs: Not necessarily a cohesive unit, the cyborgs roaming the wilds of Karakuri are ruthless, and will attack anything completely organic that they find. Once incapacitated, they will drag their target to the Automatic Cybernetic Improver (A.C.I.) thus adding them to their rank. Their goal is to improve the island by turning everything into an emotionless cyborg. Their membership includes a wide range of beasts, like wolves, hawks, rabbits, bears, polar gorillas, humans and everything in between.

    Baldimore Volunteer Defense Force: The BVDF is a hastily constructed group of men and women who wield simple weaponry in an effort to stave off the cyborgs at the gates of their city. In the past, defense was handled by high-tech weapons, but now it consists of these untrained individuals under the leadership of the President.

    Vicinity: Future Land Baldimore: A small country made up of a single sprawling city. Much of the architecture is futuristic in design, but has become derelict because of repeated strikes by roaming squadrons of cyborgs. The country holds a couple thousand people, every one of them trapped. Because of the cyborg epidemic, it has become more like a military stronghold than a country, with slapdash walls surrounding its borders, rationed food and rotating guard duties.

    Vegapunk's Lab: Since being completely ransacked for every spare part and unfinished design, the half frozen laboratory has become a shrine for visiting scientists that wish to pay their respects. From the outside, it seems to have been completely pilfered.

    Root's Lab: Housed on the opposite side of the island and in one of its coldest districts, this is where the planning and construction of the A.C.I. took place, and is thus where the cyborgs take their captured prey to be 'improved' by forcing cybernetics upon them. It's heavily fortified by patrols of cyborgs.

    Pincushion Peak: The large frozen tower on Karakuri is its tallest point, also being its coldest. It's a difficult to feat to climb to its peak, but halfway up, there is a delicate ice bridge directly towards the tallest natural peak of the island. At the foot of the tower is Baldimore, and close by the foot of the other mountain is the sector in which many labs are housed.

    Hannabal Summary:
    Hannabal Summary

    General Info: Hannabal is an outwardly pleasant island with a dark underbelly and a central geographic point of interest. Its economy mostly centers around tourism with many hotels and restaurants built to serve any wealthy travelers. Mount Odinson is the island's biggest attraction, featuring an anomalous series of rivers flowing from the town down into a waterfall off the island.




    Appearance: From one side of Hannabal, the island appears to be a sheer cliff face with mammoth waterfall pouring seawater into the Grand Line. On its other side is a glittering city in the basin of the island. On either side of the city are natural partitions of stone, separating the city from the rivers leading up towards the island's waterfall.

    A nest of buildings dot the landscape of Hannabal, each one of many small lights illuminating the civilized side of the island. At the base of of the city is a wide and welcoming port often with docks welcoming large ferries of tourists and travelers. On the outside of the stone partitions are the Underworld docks, which are far more welcome to any criminal elements looking to make a visit, at a much higher price of course.

    The size of the island is relatively small, and mostly enclosed by stone branching off of the mountain at the city's back. On the country is the City-State of Crowstoff, which encompasses the entire island, though is largely centered around the urban area at its center.

    Climate: Hannabal is an Autumn island, complete with a sweet-smelling breeze. On days of high wind, the gale force can pick up the river's waters and sprinkle the town in a saltwater rain.

    Notable NPC(s): Mask Five: Something of a mascot for the town, a small black oval with five white spots is often featured on souvenirs and goods made on the island. His insignia symbolizes legitimate events and celebrations within the town. Playfully, he's referred to as the mayor of the town, and he often welcomes high rollers at the docks.

    Mask Four: Known as Mask Five's little brother. The mark of four white spots against a black oval symbolizes less legitimate events. His presence is one of a troublemaker. He also emcees the Dead End Race as well as the Dead End Clash.

    Blues Suavegoat: Chief Peacekeeper on Hannabal. He and the other peacekeepers maintain the separation between #4 and #5 events, keeping both worlds separate, while also locking up any criminals who don't know how to keep themselves hidden. In actuality, he and his enforcers are Underworld elements.

    Flex Facer: Notoriously known as the fastest captain on Hannabal. He's an overly arrogant man who's won the Dead End Race four times and has never failed to finish. He's also an experienced shipwright, who will work on boats for a great deal of money in the off season.

    Priscilla Suit: The strongest fighter on Hannabal. She has won the Dead End Clash twice in a row. When residents on the island prove to be too much trouble for Blues and his Peacekeepers, she gladly steps in to keep her island quiet.

    Gang Hsu: An older, charismatic businessman who owns a great deal of hotels and restaurants on the island. His connections with the Underworld elements on the island also give him a very detailed information network. Criminals entering into his island will often be recruited into his Underworld 'Dead End' games or be asked to do favors for him.

    Groups: Gang Corporation: A shady corporation known for its predatory loans and its glitzy front. Their hotels and casinos make a tidy profit off Crowstoff's healthy tourism business. They're also known to be able to attract a wide variety of entertainers for their various venues across the island.

    Peacekeepers: Underworld operators under the direction of Blues. Their primary function is to maintain the peaceful facade of the island by keeping separate its light and darkness, while dealing with any criminal forces that reveal themselves too obviously to the general populace.

    Dead Enders: Athletic competitors that have devoted themselves entirely to the Dead End competitions of the island, whether that be the Race or the fighting tournament, the Clash. Not really a cohesive unit, they often run in the same circles, training in preparation for their respective competitions.

    Corner Cutters: A native favorite bar, which features a Battle of the Bands nearly every night. When judgments are made closely, the 'Battle' part becomes very literal, as fights break out so often that Peacekeepers have stopped keeping tabs on the location. It's one of the only places free from them and the Gang Corporation.

    Mt. Odinson: The geographic feature which makes Hannabal so outstanding. The tall mountain takes up about half of the island, with rivers that flow towards its peak and conclude in a waterfall out of its back. It's also the setting for the start of the Dead End Race. The Dead End Clash is also held here, with the competition being a king of the hill style fight.

Its an island with limited outside communication and a strange internal mystery.




    Appearance: Du Hasst is shaped somewhat like a kidney bean, surrounded by a natural barrier of dense trees and grassy hills. It's not very large, and is dotted by a pair of large villages. The dense trees don't extend very far inland, but there are spots of thin forest in which wild animals roam. One such patch of forest stands between the two cities, separating them.

    Its two cities are both very simple, sporting wooden buildings, and nothing much taller than three stories high. Most of the settlements are houses or small businesses, and there is much trade and communication between the towns.

The Apex Cup regularly switches possession between the two, and no town has ever held it for more than a month at a time.

    The Fairy Clan: A party of dwarf refugees that have hidden on the island. Their presence is a myth, but they do in fact hide among the trees and nature of the town, seeking safety from the World Government for having escaped the possession of a Celestial Dragon. They're quite combat proficient, but the only people to have seen them are Eason and some adventurous children.

    Vicinity: Pastelaria: The state made up of two cities. The only law in Pastelaria is that one's word is their bond, and all agreements are final. This includes tacit agreements, often when entering stores or restaurants mentioning the terms of agreement for someone being present in that business, outlining its rules. It also has no formal military, save for its position of "The Sentry," a lone guardian meant to enforce agreements and defend the state's sovereignty. Currently, Eason Church holds that position.

    Rook Town: One of the two towns that make up the small State of Pastelaria. Most of the island's fishermen live in Rook Town and travel for their catch regularly. Every two years, the town elects their mayor. It only sports a thousand or so people, with a few small businesses.

    Bishop Town: The other of the two towns that make up the small State of Pastelaria. Most of its economy is made up of large plantations made up of textiles and produce. It also holds the island's only inn. Its population is nearly twice that of Rook Town's, but effectively isn't much different.

    Triple Z: The only card shop on the island. The store is on the outskirts of Bishop Town and often sports small tournaments. Within the store is also an island-wide ranking system, placing players into different tiers that range from Minnow, Dolphin, Shark, Whale, Sea King, to Town Representative.

While it's not the only place to play matches or to hold tournaments, it is the most popular, and is the only place one's rank can be changed.

    The Church: Eason's family dojo. Because it's one of the only places that houses a variety of dangerous weapons, it's kept away from the two towns, though is technically a part of Bishop Town. There Eason practices his skills, and its nearby that he discovered the Fairy Clan. Some children will also visit to marvel at the cool weapons and play each other in cards or convince Eason to let them practice fighting with him.

    Borntubewa Archipelago Summary:
    Borntubewa Archipelago Summary

    General Info: Borntubewa is an archipelago made of five small islands shaped in a long wall that runs perpendicular to the Grand Line. Each small island juts out against the ocean and is lifted higher than most other coast lines. The largest of these land masses is the only one with an official port, housed in caverns that run underneath that island.




    Appearance: The archipelago is an uneven line of spotted islands, with each one's surface high above the sea. The average distance between the five islands is three hundred meters, and cobblestone and steel bridges have been constructed to connect one island to its neighbors, of which there are two sets. On the ground level, there are bridges connecting the islands, but high above that, there are bridges connecting the tops of each building.

    All of the islands are rather small, large enough to hold a single massive building and not much else. Those buildings all share a similar style of architecture, being very vertically minded and constructed with red brick and mortar. Under the biggest of the five islands, and coincidentally, its center, there is a cavern illuminated by torches in which a number of transport ships are docked.

    Despite its small size, the Borntubewa Archipelago is very busy, and holds more than ten thousand people, most of which are students. Indeed, the layout and interiors of each building very much resemble a university.

    Climate: Borntubewa is a Summer Archipelago, with even the evenings being very humid and warm. As the archipelago is so geographically tight, the five islands end up sharing much of the weather.

    Notable NPC(s): Dean Diana Free: A practiced meteorologist and cartographer who was invited to run Cerulean Belt University.

    Araceli Holgun: Chief of campus police and general groundskeeper. Her job is to prevent students from breaking rules and eject visitors that would do harm to the island. However, she usually enjoys the partying a bit too much to do either job seriously.

    Groups: Cerulean Belt University Student Body: During their long days, the population of over ten thousand students diligently studies in the various fields made available to them. During the evenings, however, every building and inch of land on the island is converted into partying territory, with students usually wearing simple masks so they can't be readily identified, though it's more for fun than more protection.

    Students at the university attend from all over the world in order to advance a variety of careers, all of which are readily accepted by the university. If one wants to be a pirate, a marine, an explorer or a teacher themselves, the university will gladly educate and house them for the cost of tuition. Some of the students will even try to join the pirate crews and marine ships that arrive at the archipelago.

    Double Alpha Fraternity: The all-male student body organization with well over two hundred members to its name. Each member takes a vow not to party or stray from their diligent path on becoming a hardened marine. When pirates arrive on the island, they will sometimes try to organize and attack while they call on marines to help.

    Appearance: Banaro Island is a moderately sized, mostly level island with pillars of gray rock buried randomly in the dirt and weeds.

She also claims to be a descendant of former residents of the island, and knows it very well.

    Connie Strut: An entrepreneurial woman looking to start a state on the island of Banaro and break the three century curse. Already, she has a small community of a hundred or so houses constructed on one side of the island. She's a very upbeat and ambitious person, looking to invite anybody to join her burgeoning country and grant them asylum.

    Timoteo Onochs: "Tim" is a traveling historian that has joined with the state of Strutagonia. He hopes to discover what conflict cursed the island so many years ago and incessantly wanders the island to that end. He hopes to fill in the blank slots in his exceedingly popular history books.

    Click Onochs: Timoteo's younger brother. Click is a comic artist whose comedic strip, "Unlucky News Coo," has become wildly popular, and is regularly featured in the WEJ. His submissions are sent through Panel, whom he knows as an Underworld member. Though less successful than his brother, Click is a very popular figure in Strutagonia.

    Vicinity: Strutagonia: A burgeoning country that has yet to be officially recognized by the World Government. Their population is only that of a few thousand, but many of the people possess an adventurous spirit. The town is adorned by tens of thousands of flowers, all meant to fight against the stink of the island. Just a year into their presence, already rumors about the curse of "Betrayal" have begun to circulate, and some people are violently turning against each other. Unfortunately, Connie Strut doesn't seem to be a leader equipped to properly quell such a rumor.

    Dead Zone: A mysterious spot on the island where nothing natural can grow. The stink of the island is strongest there. Nihkila often spends her free time there. While there was once a town centered there, nothing has been built near it for reasons no one can quite explain.

    Stink Pile: A small saloon stuck like a sore thumb on the flat plains of the island which isn't affiliated with Strutagonia. Its most common customers are visiting criminals and members of the Tin Star Guild. Miniature Den-Den Mushis take pictures of all who enter into the bar, while surreptitious audio Mushis record conversations from most spots inside the saloon.

    Marine Base G-3 Summary

    General Info: G-3 was built around a naturally small island and is constructed like a network of domed towers, some of which are lighthouses and turrets. Twin battleships patrol the surrounding waters. It is sometimes referred to as "Guess Three" as one of the base's primary functions is doling out bounties and epithets for new criminals.




    Appearance: G-3 is naturally a quite small island, but all of the artificial construction built around it has expanded its reach and size. Some trees and natural flora outlines these buildings and their paths, but very few animals still reside on the island. Three main towers rise above the lower buildings.

    Groups: 301st Marine Division: The small army of marines that runs G-3. Within the upper ranks of the marines are discussions around assigning bounties and epithets to criminals in the Blues and early stages of Paradise.

    The Trident: The three notable captains of the island that make up Feng Capp's closest advisers. Each of the marines are on meteoric tracks towards higher ranks. Most bases are occupied by marines of much higher ranks, but the sheer power of the Trident has proved such deployment unnecessary.

    Vicinity: Lighthouse Tower: One of the tallest towers on G-3, responsible for spotting incoming ships that the natural winds may be pushing towards the marine base. Near its top are a few large scale cannons. Jeremiah Heel is in charge of this Tower.

    Cell Tower: Captured criminals delivered by bounty hunters, by G-3 deployments, or captured invaders are held in this prison tower. Routinely, the tower is emptied by ships from Impel Down picking up new prisoners. Strum Lace is in charge of this Tower.

    Marine 141st Division: This detachment was originally led by a marine captain, but he left after seeing the unsavory job they'd be performing regularly. The unambitious band of law enforcement is now led by a pair of Lieutenants, but they take their orders from Shin Sei.

    The Strangers: A group of people who have escaped servitude for the CCC, and instead of trying to escape they've dedicated themselves wholly to breaking the control that the CCC maintains over its people.

    Vicinity: Dusk Docks: The only official port on the island. It's named as such because landing one's ship there marks the sunset of a ship's adventure, as they'll be swiftly accosted and inducted into servitude.

    Erumala: Also known as the "Green City," the place is one of an oasis within the sprawling Sandora desert. It's naturally protected by valiant bounty hunters seeking the tutelage of the city's governor.

    Yuba City: Though relatively small in population, Yuba possesses many destination stores and specialized artisans that deal in weaponcraft, shipbuilding and other specific traditions. Fighters from across the kingdom have been invited in recent weeks to duel its governor, who seeks to prove he's among the four strongest warriors in Alabasta.

    Katorea: The city that has experienced the most turbulence through the times of this political shift. Despite its ruler's support for the ruling family, its people desire change, and the city is barreling towards a flash point representative of the rest of the country's political scales.

    Tamarisk: Bogged by criminality and poverty, Tamarisk is also known as "Risky Town" by those that have been burned by its merciless populace. Criminals are invited and granted temporary amnesty for the sake of training its governor to become a better fighting so that she may join the Four Blades.

    Nanohana: The pinnacle of cleanliness. Many of the deployed marines choose to stay at Nanohana so as to limit the amount of work they have to do. It's well known that even small crimes go severely punished within city limits.

    Notable NPC(s): Awilda "Dart" Allday: "King of the Jungle" on Jaya. Awilda is Captain of the Dart Pirates, and as her crew holds the strongest collective bounty on the island, she is its unofficial ruler, meaning her decrees are often followed by others on the island for as long as she stays on the island as a sign of respect. She's considered taking Jaya as part of her crew's territory. Her navigation skills have given her an epithet that represents her ship's unbelievable speed across the Grand Line.

    Pantos D'Koin: A marine captain that has gone undercover as a pirate captain with the rest of his marine division posing as the Black Flag pirates.

    Dwayne Ketch: A rookie bounty hunter who traveled to Jaya in the hopes of thwarting the pirates that run without rule. He despises the worthless marines that let things exist as they do, and wield's his mother's twin swords in order to enact night raids against the pirate groups, destroying their ships and kidnapping their members. He lives in the treetops of the island's jungle along with other weak bounty hunters.  

    Groups: Dart Pirates: The most powerful pirate crew among several on Jaya. Their captain possesses the title 'King of the Jungle,' meaning they're rules are respected by the pirates and citizens of the island.

    Black Flag Pirates: A pirate crew that rose to prominence after their overwhelming destruction of the 141st Marine Division. In reality, the crew is populated by the members of the 141st Marine Division, and their job is to report the goings on of the island to their superiors.

    Mouth Bay: The deep inlet that stands between the two sides of the island. Many docks outline the seawater leading into the center of the island. All manner of ships are allowed into the docks, though some have dangerous cons or unstable docks waiting for rookie visitors.

    General Info: Long Ring Long Land is technically an archipelago, connected by a sliver of land usually submerged in water.

Its unique geography prompts its flora and fauna to grow to extraordinarily lengths, in a very literal sense of the word.

Each island in the archipelago looks very similar from a distance, featuring grassy plains that're invariably spotted by small clusters of distinctive plant and animal life.

    Gri Patt: A beast tamer that has taken a shining to the strange animals of Long Ring Long Land. He and his Bite Tribe hunt down the Hong-Mong tribe, seeking to exploit their zoological knowledge.

    Vicinity: Ten Islands of Long Ring Long Land: No permanent structures exist on the island. Rather, the cycle of movement, growth and death are respected. Some of its islands will possess evidence of past settlement by the nomadic tribes, or will be currently settled before the water rises. Because of the islands statuses as appearing on Log Poses, most people also accept the duty of housing traveling adventurers at the price of good stories.

    Appearance: Even from far off, the tall mountains of Kenzan can be made out very clearly. Many structures are built on the sides of these natural spires, and connect to one another via artificial bridges. Much of the island is well above sea level, making docking at the island its own unique challenge.

    Climate: Kenzan is a Summer island, perpetually bombarded by a warm sunlight that's easily escaped by the island's mountain's shadows.

    Notable NPC(s): Gososhin Qiu: The King of Tehna Gehna. He is a harsh ruler that looks to connect Tehna Gehna to the World Government. He aspires to be a world leader on par with the attendees of the Reverie and extend the Longarm's status as people beyond being a sideshow attraction.

    Gabriel Barwen: Representative of the World Government. It's his job to verify the strength and cultural worth of Tehna Gehna and judge whether or not the country is worth acceptance into the World Government. As a normal human, he's already quite biased against the strange Longarms.

Her skill with her great axe is feared across Paradise. She has great loyalty towards the World Government, and won't maintain any slight against her retainer's honor or position.

Despite that, her skills continue to enchant many citizens. She believes Tehna Gehna should stay as an isolationist country, as she believes they won't be accepted by the world at large, and thus, there's no use trying to do so.

    Ah Lam Qiu: First princess of the Royal Family. Ah Lam is also a bounty hunter that has opened many channels through the marines by delivering them valuable pirates that have encroached into Tehna Gehna's sovereignty.

Now, their patriarch pursues membership among the World Government, despite the people's general resentment towards marines and the world government as a whole.

    Vicinity: Horse Step Docks: The only official docks that are accessible to incoming ships. As the natural shore line of Kenzan Island is rather large, it's difficult for ships to normally dock at the harbor, but by digging out much of the rock, this spot has become the acceptable port for visitors.

    Broadsword Pirates: Led by two heirs to the royal crown, this group of privateers is ignored by the World Government, so long as the two don't come into direct contact with each other, as are all of the kingdom's privateers.

    Olive Castle: The closest to lawlessness in Britton. Its weak military presence and location within the swampy forests of the kingdom make it a natural hideaway for criminals, and thus, the place has a bad reputation. Incoming criminals are often advised to spend their time there.

    Leo Castle: Built near the center of Avarice Island, Leo Castle is a star-shaped structure with subterranean chambers that are widely considered ripe for exploring. Foriegn dignitaries and representatives of the marines and World Government are often invited to stay at the luxurious estate.

    Salt Range: A mountain range that divides the warring states in a natural way. The mountains aren't terribly tall or impregnable. However, the obscuring of vision does make it difficult to conduct warfare in their vicinity.

    Heartbreak Island Summary:

    Heartbreak Island Summary

    Notable NPC(s): Alaric Marsh: The mayor of Summerland. He's a very somber man despite the island's recent upturn. Many of the island's people have left, making his city the last established settlement on Heartbreak Island. He's decided to stay because if the sun ever does encompass the entire island, he wants to see it.

    Ebony "Surprise" Wiseman: A bounty hunter that was raised on Heartbreak Island. Her community left in a Washout, but she stayed behind, refusing to leave behind the graves of her parents. She trained with a sword, and became a mediocre defense for the island. However, when she ate a weird fruit growing by the desert, she became a "Party Human" by eating the Confetti-Confetti Logia Devil Fruit. Since then, she has become the heartbreaker of the island, defeating entire crews of pirates and bringing wealth to the island through their defeat. She's resolute in preventing anybody from taking advantage of the island.

    Citizens of Heartbreak Island: Over the years, their population has deteriorated because of people who have left. Most of them wear wide brimmed hats in an effort to keep the rain out of their eyes. No matter what they build or do, much of it is wiped away by the constant rain, and so the people don't do much of anything, and desperately seek something to take their minds of their bad luck. Most of them have decided to stay out of sentimentality or tradition. One of the few things its people can do is read the newspapers that come to the island. Because so many people stay adrift of events, its people are very well spoken and well reasoned in their ascertaining of current events. Children also enjoy making boats and hats out of the paper afterwards.

    Vicinity: Summerland: A name invented to give its people a sunny disposition. Unfortunately, it's failed to do that much. Instead, its wooden structures house all the people on the island. Much of their money comes from bounties earned by Ebony, used to buy foods from foreign islands.

    Washout Towns: Derelict and abandoned villages that are void of any population. After being left without maintenance in the rain, they often fall into muddy piles of drenched wood.

    The Lake Without an End: A body of fresh water which is constantly overfilled by the rain. Several downward streams carry excess water to the shoreline. Some plant life grows around the lake, and bodies are often buried to one side of its shore.
