Melantha

Melantha is a resort island located between Ashenthorn and Elaysm. It is visitable by invitation-only ferries that depart from ports worldwide. A Melanthan vacation is seen as the height of luxury, and even kings may find it difficult to afford frequent visits to the place.

Melantha has seven different resorts, each separate and isolated from the others. The entire island is covered in gorgeous scenery and breathtaking natural landscapes. Each of the seven resorts offers a unique vacation experience, tailored to fit the guest's taste and budget. The owner of the island and its resorts, a dark-skinned gnome named Rainbow Patterson, is rumored to be able to control the weather in and around the island. Due to demand, each guest is limited to one vacation per calendar year.

Survivalist’s Sanctuary
Edit

This resort is for the outdoorsman in all of us. The central hub of the resort is a collection of tents about a mile into the jungle off of the southern coast of the island. Here the staff provides any assistance required, or none at all, as requested by the guest. Within the 10-mile radius area of the resort are all manner of physical trials. The days in the jungle are extra warm and the night extra cool in this area. Everything about this resort revolves around the guest’s desire to lose him- or herself in self-sufficiency and in a battle against nature itself. Guests that spend time in this resort often come out even tougher than when they went in.

The Convention Hall
Edit

A massive building inland on the eastern side of the island with many lecture halls, libraries, and workshops, the Convention Hall is the perfect getaway for the knowledge-hungry guest. Though personal quarters in this center are somewhat less focused upon than many of the other resorts, few guests decide to spend much time in their rooms other than to sleep. Each and every guest is assigned one of our knowledgeable and highly trained personal assistants that perform duties such as retrieving books or tools, delivering meals, and procuring materials needed by the guest for his or her research.

White Lotus Monastery
Edit

This resort is on a small satellite island a few hundred yards off the northeastern coast of the main island. It is a place of quiet contemplation and meditation. The aura of spiritual focus can be felt as far away as the main-island-end of the long wooden foot bridge used to reach the monastery. Though the accommodations are comfortable, they are simple in design to as not to distract guests from their personal quests of enlightenment and divine purity. Replete with gardens both floral and mineral, zen ponds, and small stretches of bamboo forest, the White Lotus is the place to be for any guest desiring a peaceful, quiet vacation.

Poet’s Pointe
Edit

The sprawling campus of this resort holds the most spectacular vistas on the whole island. Situated on a raised peninsula on the southeast coast of the island, the Pointe’s auditoriums and demarked viewpoints offer anyone looking for inspiration an artist’s paradise of landscapes, natural wonders, wondrous architecture, and even people watching vantages. Some truly great poems, songs, and paintings have been produced by guests staying here. Additionally the campus has several stables with many varied types of mounts for guests to enjoy a ride around the highlands. With inspiring cuisine from the world-class chefs to spur on the guest’s muse, and very comfortable accommodations, guests need only concern themselves with the next verse of their epic.

Gambler’s Paradise
Edit

Also known as Melantha’s Nightlight, the opulent casino and inn Gambler’s Paradise has something for everyone looking for a little financial risk. Games of chance abound throughout the three levels of the building dedicated to them, offering everything from cards to dice to coin-operated slot machines developed right on the island (look for jackpots that can even transform guests into elementals, fey, angels, and other fantastic beings!). There are also levels of the high-rise building that are dedicated to wagering on anything from professional fights to horse races. Our staff of dealers and bookies are trained professionals and the building’s security team of gnome-built magiteknical guards ensure that all transactions are legal and that our guests are protected from theft.
