Arda's time has drawn to an end, as all good things must. Remember it with fondness, and may it rest in peace.

Goodbye, everyone, I loved you all and Arda very dearly.

Former members may still log in and view all the old posts (now showing all posts, not just in-character and profiles), but the board is unavailable to new registrants and officially read-only. The CBox is still functional and many people still stop by to say hello.

This site's host, InvisionFree (zIFBoards), is transferring all the boards they host to their updated platform known as ZetaBoards as of an announcement on 7/17/2017. Arda has been converted as of January 2018. You can expect to see some visual changes when you visit, but all data (posts, accounts, forums, etc) remains intact.

Additionally, Photobucket stopped allowing hotlinking from its free accounts in 2017 so many images are currently "missing."
All files are still safely stored and awaiting transfer to a better hosting solution. You can read here for more info.

Per an additional announcement on 5/7/18, this board is being converted a second time, this time to TapaTalk from ZetaBoards. Details pending further information.

Regular Forum Palanen Ocean
This is the largest ocean of Arda. The waters are unpredictable, and storms are not uncommon after short distances away from the shores. There are said to be many pirates roaming the waters that frequently raid merchant ships. A second rumor has arisen lately, with word of a section of Palanen now called Kraken Sea. This area of Palanen is overpopulated with belligerent krakens, a danger to any ship that passes through. Many a ship has been destroyed in these waters, torn in half by the enormous squid-like monsters.

Regular Forum Salquedor Grasslands
The Salquedor grasslands consist of the large empty plains lands that cover a large expanse of Arda. The trees are far and few and there is a constant light breeze that carries the scent of the flowery meadows that are found there.

Regular Forum The Village of Estolad
Estolad is a small rural village at the junction of a few dirt roads that lead from the Salquedor Grasslands and Lómëdor. There are not many shops, and most of the homes are small and simple. Strangers are a regular occurrence and there is one small run down inn for the many travelers that pass through.

Regular Forum Misty Forest
A veil of mist that never lifts envelopes the forest. All vision is restricted to a mere thirty meters or so, even for the keen eyes of the elves. It is a very mysterious place, and none are sure exactly how large it really is.

Regular Forum Lake Aelin
The waters of Lake Aelin are dark blue and very deep, plentiful with fish. The lands around the lake are bountiful with vegetation and animals. A cool breeze is always slightly blowing, and the air smells like salt.

Regular Forum The Eastern Coast
The waves of the eastern sea crash upon the gentle white shores. Seagulls fill the skies, and shells lay along the expanse of the coastline. There are not as many ports or cities along this coast, and the waters and sands are cleaner for it.

Regular Forum Yomenïampa
Nestled near the southern coast of Eä, a forest-city stands in full glory. This is the great city of the Elves, Yomenïampa, a name also shared with the entire forest in which their city abides. The treetop city is carefully guarded by skilled Elven archers, and unwelcome visitors do not make it past their initial line of defense with ease.

Regular Forum Alulanta Falls
This region is filled with waterfall after waterfall, and abundant with plants and mosses. The lands are rocky and broken, but no longer jagged for the rushing waters have smoothed and rounded the lands. The waters seem to whisper tales of old, and eventually flow into one large, clear pool.

Regular Forum Anfauglir Desert
Most of this vast desert has not had rain in over 200 years, and the heat is never ceasing. There are no plants except those that grow near the edges of the desert where there is a little rain. During the nights, it is cooler, but still a death trap for those that choose to travel without water. The winds are often high, and sandstorms are usual occurrences.

Regular Forum The Mystic Wood
This is an ARP forum.
This lightly wooded area holds many mysteries for those that travel within. It is fabled that this is where the rainbow ends, and thus are the lands of the secretive leprechauns. The trees also bear multicolored buds and leaves that look as though they were made of candy, and hang lightly, standing out from among the light green of the other leaves. Fairies and Pixies are often seen flitting among the light foliage, and often found perched daintily on top of the bountiful mushrooms seen all along the worn paths. The abundance of pixie dust in the air creates a magical aura that makes it seem like a fairy tale land, enhanced by the colorful display of the trees and flowers.

Regular Forum Ered Annon Mountains
This great mountain range is West of Lómëdor. They stretch for a long distance with no other way to pass except to go over or around by sea. There is one break called the Gap of the Annon that allows travelers to pass without the hazardous trek up the mountains. There is said to be a large hallowed gem at the top of the tallest mountain in the entire range, but none know which mountain is the tallest. The gem is said to hold great powers for any that may find it.

Regular Forum Ondolond
A bustling center for trade and commerce at the mouth of the Gap of Annon, tucked between the mountain side and the Misty Forest. The mountains are rich with minerals, metals, gems, and stones, while the forest is plentiful with lumber and game, which means Ondolond is abundantly supplied with many in-demand resources. Shops and buildings are mostly built with the stone mined from the mountains, and homes are generally made of lumber cut from the forest, roofed with thatch. Most of the buildings are workshops, artisan guilds, agricultural markets, and vendors, but there is more than enough accommodation for the constant visitors that the city receives. Despite how recently this city cropped up, it is rapidly gaining wealth and size.

Regular Forum Sanctuary of the Angels
This holy city near the western coast was built long ago to provide safety and peace to those in need. It is said that the city was built upon the hallowed land where Aman rested during its time of descent. In the center of the sanctuary is a statue depicting one of the Imperial Archangels that follow the Goddess of Life and many sit to worship and pray here upon the cobblestone.

Regular Forum Taurerosa Rainforest
The floor of the rainforest is nearly always flooded or at least muddy from constant showers during most of the year. The air is always hot, muggy, and filled with insects that sting and bite as well as travel in little swarms. There are many huge plants that cover any of the forest that isn't filled with tropical tress, many of which have thorns and can be poisonous. As unpleasant as it sounds, there are also enough spots where the plants and insects are few and the ground is dry. There are tales told of a vicious tribe of humans that hunt other intelligent beings to offer as sacrifices to the gods, but they are thought to be only children's stories told to the young at night.
