Fanmade Map of Deniz

Deniz is a Mediterranean paradise of glittering seas where Water and Wind Temtem abound. Walk the streets of Turquesa, explore the ruins of an ancient fort or just chill.

Wind Temtem are often seen flying around the Thalassian Cliffs of Deniz.

In the minds of every human in the Archipelago, the name of Deniz evokes sunny vistas of white houses on rugged hillsides, descending all the way down to the glittering waters of the Sillaro. One way or another, the floating sea has marked the lives of all Denizans. From the first sea-faring merchants to the droves of modern tourists that flock to Arissola, the Denizans are a lively culture, outgoing and completely at home everywhere they might find good conversation and a challenging Temtem battle.

The sailor brotherhoods that started taming Wind and Water Temtem ages ago are still active. Although many visitors only know the shores of Briçal de Mar, it pays to take the scenic route to Zadar, visit the ruins of Windward Fort or explore the Aguamarina Caves. The town of Turquesa and Indigo Lake hold their own surprises, although nothing is always as idyllic as it might seem under the hot sun and cool breeze of Deniz…

History[edit | edit source]

Deniz has a long history of myths a literature. Long ago, the legend of the Kingdom of the Sea Queen was a foundational myth for Arissola in describing its relationship with Sillaro sailors. Also, the Romance of the Last Sheikh is a Denizan poem glorifying the memory of an ancient thalassocrat of the Sillaro, who waged war and lost against mysterious magi beings.

Deniz has changed a lot in the past few centuries.
