Tirahnys Continent

Tirahnys is the continent on which the castle “Lunar Soul” is found. The Lunar Shadow mod takes place here. The continent lies in the northern hemisphere.


NAME:
Pronunciation: tu-ran-is
IPA: /tɜˈrænɪs/
Adjective form: Tirahnysan


KNOWN LOCATIONS:

  • Lunar Soul: the castle of a mysterious young man. It seems to be tainted by a mysterious, dark force.
  • Yes Town: a town to the west of the castle. Since two years ago, a mysterious spell placed on the town prevents people from saying “no” or “maybe” while in town, and it is assumed to be a part of Newerth’s apocalypse. This is Serenity’s home town.
  • No Town: a town to the west of Yes Town. Since two years ago, a mysterious spell on this town prevents people from saying “yes” or “maybe” while in town, and it is assumed to be part of Newerth’s apocalypse.
  • Maybe Town: a town between Yes Town and Lunar Soul Castle, hidden underground. Since two years ago, a mysterious spell on this town prevents people from saying “yes” or “no”.
  • Maybe Caverns: caves that lead to Maybe Town. Can be entered from Niamh Tír na nÓg to the west, Gomu Forest to the north and the crossroads between Bjorn Village and Azure City. Ground-type Pokémon are found here, along with Rock-type Pokémon.
  • Gomu Forest: a forest between the Lunar Soul Castle and various areas. There are paths to Maybe Caverns, Bjorn Village and Yes Town. It lies west of the castle, and north-east of Yes Town. Bug-type and Water-type Pokémon are found here.
  • Azure City: one of the Eight Cities of Neia. It is the capital city of Tirahnys and is far south of the Lunar Soul Castle. On land, it can be accessed through Bjorn Village to the north-west and the Maybe Caverns to the west. It is one of two coastal cities on the continent.
  • Bjorn Village: a village constructed by the ancient Hero of Azure, Bjorn, and thus one of the Eight Heroes’ Villages. It’s south-east of the Gomu Forest, north-west of Azure City and north-east of the Maybe Caverns entrance. Bjorn’s shrine is said to contain his legendary sword, Claíomh Solais.
  • Niamh Tír na nÓg: a grassy area with almost no monsters. The forested part is inhabited by elves, ruled over their queen (always named Niamh). To the south-east lies the entrance to Maybe Caverns. To the north-north-east lies Yes Town. To the west lies No Town. The name of this area follows the Irish pronunciation (Niamh is an Irish mythological being and is one of the queens of Tír na nÓg). Grass-type Pokémon are mostly found here, with a few Fairy-type Pokémon.
  • No Mountain: a massive volcanic mountain near No Town. The summit is to the north-west, and has a teleportation device to the Sky Island. North is Garmia Spire, and west is Never City. Fire-type Pokémon are commonly found here, but Rock and Steel-type Pokémon are also encountered here.
  • Never City: a massive coastal city west of No Mountain. It is rumored to have a portal to the Netherworld.
  • Garmia Spire: a massive tower made of gemstones. It is rumored to contain one of the Eight Seals that imprison the ancient forces of darkness. South of this spire is No Mountain.
  • Sky Island: a floating island. Little is known about it, but it lies to the north-west of Yes Town. It can only be accessed via a teleportation device on No Mountain.

CURRENCY:
The currency of Tirahnys is the gold dinar, the silver centime and the bronze ducat. 100 ducats equal 1 centime, and 100 centimes are equal to 1 dinar.


SCHOOLS:
Schools are obviously places of education. Ever since Lady Ilina came to be president, all Tirahnysan schools were decreed to have school uniforms, as Ilina believed that school uniforms would help with studying and learning.
Primary schools are for students ages 10 to 14. High schools are for students ages 15 to 20, and finishing Grade 10 is a requirement for most jobs on the continent. Universities are located only in the cities on the continent, though school uniforms aren’t enforced for them and universities are technically optional depending on the job.
Some jobs can be taken while a student is still in school, such as modelling (which allows students at the age of 17 and older to be fashion models).

Schools and Uniforms:

  • Yes Town: Lady Ilina personally chose the school uniforms, as she was attending the school prior to her disappearance. While Yes Town has two schools, they both are very close by, separated by the sports fields where students spend their breaks most of the time.
    • Primary School:
      Girls wear a white shirt and, during the autumn and winter months, a dark pink tie and a dark pink jersey. They wear dark pink skirts as well, though during autumn and winter they may wear grey trousers. They also wear dark pink knee-high socks or, during autumn and winter, black tights; they also wear black school shoes. During winter, gloves and scarves are optional but have to be black; scarves can be dark pink and fingerless gloves aren’t allowed. Hair accessories may be worn, but have to be dark pink or black.
      Boys wear a white shirt and, during the autumn and winter months, a dark blue jersey and a dark blue tie. They are allowed to wear grey or dark blue trousers during autumn and winter, or grey or dark blue shorts during spring and summer. They also wear grey socks and black school shoes. During winter, scarves are optional but they have to be black or dark blue.
    • High School:
      Girls wear a white shirt with a black jacket and a dark pink tie. They are allowed to wear grey trousers or dark pink skirts. They also wear black tights and black school shoes. During winter, gloves and scarves are optional but have to be black; scarves can be dark pink and fingerless gloves aren’t allowed. Hair accessories may be worn, but have to be dark pink or black.
      Boys wear a white shirt with a black jacket and a dark blue tie. They are allowed to wear grey or dark blue trousers. They also wear grey socks and black school shoes. During winter, scarves are optional but they have to be black or dark blue.

LAWS:
Most of the Tirahnys laws are unfair towards people, as the corrupt president is a Dark Elf and Dark Elves usually treat humans and most non-elven races with disdain and hatred.

  • Spell casting and knowing spells by non-elves are both illegal on this continent and punishable by death.
  • Theft is illegal and is punishable by ten years in jail.
  • Attacking elves is illegal and is punishable by becoming a tree for all eternity.
  • Visiting the Sky Island or Garmia Spire is forbidden. Anyone found there will be arrested and sentenced to life in prison.
  • People from other planets are forbidden in Tirahnys. Any such person will be arrested and given a death sentence.

PRESIDENTS:
The republic of Tirahnys, being a democratic nation, has its heads of state as presidents. Some kind, others… not-so-kind. This will list the known presidents.

  • Mi’aro Genryutsukei (b. 1915; 2013 – 2015; current)
  • Lady Ilina (b. 1996; 2006 – 2013; status unknown)
  • Lady Ilina’s Father (b. 1970; 1998 – 2006; died from heart attack)
  • Lady Ilina’s Grandfather (b. 1934; 1968 – 1998; died from falling over)

Other Information:
Age seems to not matter, as Lady Ilina has been a president ever since she was ten years old.
