The mainland is a landmass (presumably a continent) on First of the Sun,[1] a planet in the Drominad System.[2]

History[edit]

Little is known about the mainland outside of its interactions with the residents of the Eelakin Islands. The Eelakin people were once simple wayfinders. Over time, the islands were "tamed" and their society has become industrialized (with the notable exception of trappers who still live in the Pantheon). As Eelakin society has progressed, the residents have had increased contact with the mainlanders, who live "across the seas", but within sailing distance. Many Eelakin now use mainlander names for their children instead of traditional names.[1]

One of the notable consequences of this contact is that mainlanders know of the magical talents bestowed by Aviar. They have placed significant demand on the Eelakin to capture Aviar and provide them to mainlanders for sale or trade. Aviar were formerly very expensive on the mainland, but prices have fallen, likely due to increased supply from companies such as the Northern Interests Trading Company. This has increased demand even further, and the companies are working on ways to find and capture more Aviar.[1]

The mainland's natural resources appear to differ from those of the Eelakin Islands and the Pantheon. Food on the mainland is more plentiful than it is on the Pantheon; even trappers occasionally visit the mainland seeking provisions and supplies. The mainland also has animal species that differ from those found on the islands; Vathi was able to immediately identify Sak as a mainlander bird.[1]
