    The Cardian Islands were an island chain that ran between the two northern continents. The islands were also the home of a species of peaceful Dragons that lived in an underground network of caves. The Dragons valued courage and bravery above all. No monsters lurked in the caverns and the riches of the Dragons were found littered throughout their tunnels. Bahamut the Dragon King ruled from a vast, deep cave hidden under the forested middle island close to the Hellfire Chasm. Elves were known to explore the Chasm to prove their worth by hunting for the treasures within.

GAME INFO
    The Cardian Islands can only be reached by Airship. The Dragon Caves and the Hellfire Chasm are located on the island chain.

NAME ORIGIN
    Cardian may be related to the Greek kardia which means "heart". If anyone has any information, please feel free to contact the Webmaster.
