The Diamond Ocean

Following the end of the Diamond Maelstrom, a large portion of the Desert Expanse was once again made visible to the world. One particular stretch of this land had gained a beautiful after effect of the storm settling; a diamond coating. Because of this, the sand seems to glisten in the sunlight and look white in the moonlight. Don't let the beauty fool you, however, as the Diamond Ocean is home to many creatures and locations that were once hidden from outside contact, but are now once more free to roam and enter.

Stardust Stadium

The Stardust Stadium is home to gladiatorial fights and sporting events. While the name of this location was travelling much further around the country, this location had been operating since the beginning of the Daimyo Shiro's reign. Those that serve as the gladiators and competitors of this event are either "special attractions" brought in by the shady benefactors and operators of this stadium or are part of the large scale human trafficking network that plagues Wind Country. Some find joy in the entertainment, others seek freedom or fame within the walls of this pit, but the Stardust Stadium can only guarantee one thing: blood. The Stadium is built off the side of a mountain that overlooks the Golden Sanctuary. This suspended coliseum is the reason for the name "Stardust" as most events are held under the lights of the stars during the night.

Golden Sanctuary

The Golden Sanctuary is another location that had been once hidden within the Diamond Maelstrom that was now gaining a lot of attention from the rest of the country. Outwardly it may look like a prison, but within the walls of this Sanctuary, you will find a vibrant and sprawling shopping and merchant paradise. What you may miss, however, is that most of the employees and the labor force of this grand place are forced laborers from the human trafficking network. Much like Stardust Stadium, yet not as obvious, this location is governed and operated by a shadowy hand that has not lessened its grip in the wake of Daimyo Shiro's rumored passing/hiding.

Luminous Mountains

One of the several rolling mountain ranges within Wind Country, but the only one touched by the diamond settlement of the now-ended Diamond Maelstrom. The Luminous Mountains truly live up to their name during the moments of dusk when the lowering sun or the hanging moon hit it just right causing the residual glassy sand to cast various purple hues on the mountains. This beautiful scenery offsets the horrors of two locations within its proximity, Golden Sanctuary & Stardust Stadium, while also highlighting the true beauty of not only The Diamond Ocean but Wind Country in general. It is rumoured that several Ridgeback Sphinx made home within these mountains during the Diamond Maelstrom, but it is uncertain if they still hide within this range (and would be unwise to try and determine one way or another).
