Area Lore/Back Story

Dessert Island is what remains of a once-large island. After a "passing of the Wyld" (a hurricane that triggered an earthquake), the city that was once above ground, collapsed into a deep set of tunnels. The only remaining residents are a group of shipwrecked girls and some zombie-like creatures that have escaped from the city below.

General Information/Trivia

  • NO, 'Dessert Island' is NOT a typo. The zone name is a pun. - Cordir (talk) 08:13, 13 August 2012 (MST)
  • Sad, but True: When I was writing Tier Sh'Halen, I wasn't expecting that I would need to write an island for it to be underneath. So this was very much a rush job. I was talking over ideas at one of the many Southern California GTs held at Tokugawa & Xaviera's place, and one of the regulars, Mojo, said he wanted a zone full of attractive female mobs that he could cast Charm Person on, and have follow him around. The idea for the Shipwrecked Babes was born. - Cordir 16:37, 20 July 2011 (MST)
  • A couple of the Shipwrecked Babes are based on women I knew at the time of writing, specifically Lisa and Anathea. The mob descriptions are quite true-to-life. - Cordir (talk) 08:24, 13 August 2012 (MST)

  • Upon the zone's update, the group of whisk and Aoide were the first to reach it. Whisk was the first player to gain exp in the zone, nearly an hour after entering it. - Cordir (talk) 19:10, 12 October 2012 (MST)
