When I first heard about Gyala Hatchery, I was surprised to hear about the young sealife the Luxons were saving. In the hatchery they have a wide range of eggs and hatchlings, including sea life that can no longer live in the Jade Sea, and baby turtles. They are such a war like culture that I didn’t expect them to have a soft spot for raising young animals. To fully explore the hatchery area, I was accompanied by Solorian, Kali T.C., and Jordan O.F. We began our adventure from Leviathan Pits, a small jade mining area.

We first saw this enormous Leviathan ship that stretches from the Leviathan Pits to the explorable area. Apparently the structure was crafted out of a mammoth turtle shell.

Like Mount Qinkai, Maishang Hills is another Luxon territory that attracts Canthan visitors. The outpost where I asked my friends to wait for me: Bai Paasu Reach, is a popular tourist destination for city folk that want to visit this mountainous region. Further away at Eradon Terrace, there is a jade-smashing device made by Canthans to help with making jade more transportable. While I was thinking about all of this, my friends Xia, Vengance, and Cver showed up and we set out to begin our exploration.

In Cavalon while I waited for my friends to arrive, I chatted up some of the Luxons to learn more about their culture. Elder Rhea told me that the gods only value strength, and that is why the Kurzicks are doomed to fall in battle at the hands of the Luxons. As much as I wanted to have a debate about what only one god may want (Balthazar), I kept these thoughts to myself. Next I talked to Rasmus, who explained why their turtles are so huge. They use the magic found in jade and amber to enhance their size. The Kurzicks have the amber the Luxons need and the Luxons have the jade the Kurzicks need. This is just one of many reasons why both sides are constantly at war. Before I could talk to anyone else, my friends Xia, Catfish and R. Wulf arrived so we set out to explore Archipelagos together.
