Exalted: The Role of the Dice
The Wavecrest Archipelago is the largest single Western state. The largest island, Abalone, has a land area of approximately 100,000 square miles, and is the biggest island in Western Creation. The other two main islands both measure more than 5,000 square miles, and the entire archipelago supports a population of over a million people. Located toward the south and at a moderate distance from the Realm, these islands seem to bask in a perpetual verdant, sunny springtime. Wavecrest is luxuriantly fertile and supplies food throughout the West. The archipelago is a profitable target for pirates and a lure to conquerors. Furthermore, the islands are in constant danger from the volcanoes that scar them and the Wyld zones surrounding those volcanoes. While they are kept in check by a system of human sacrifices to the volcano god Hamoji, the volcanoes remain a reminder of the forces of nature that all who dwell in the West must know and fear. Wavecrest’s ports and trading ships are civilized and easy-going, but the inner reaches of its islands are wild and untamed, tribal and lethal.
