— Welcome Message
Anagoge Island is a remote storm-blown island off the coast of the Council Lands of Alharth. Few sailors are willing to tempt the treacherous waters, preferring to stick to the coast of the nearby Serbule region. In recent years, an increased number of mind-wiped adventurers have been showing up in Serbule and the surrounding duchies. Many of these individuals claim to have washed ashore on Anagoge with nothing but the clothes on their back. While mostly barren, Anagoge Island is rumored to have been the site of a Council Academy for those deemed Prodigies. Unlucky sailors report that ruins dot the coastline, and a lighthouse marks the center of the island. Marooned Adventurers who attempt to swim off the island will be met with deadly sharks and strong currents.
Anagoge Island is the starting area in Project:Gorgon for Humans, Elves, and Rakshasa. You will have the opportunity to learn a few basic skills before reaching the neighboring lands of Serbule and Serbule Hills. There are two methods to leave the island, although it is advised to find the island's inhabitants first.
