Before the world we know today was fully inhabited, during the Time of Chaos, while small villages were being formed by the more intelligent inhabitants, far to the south, in the jungles of the more humid climates, natives were taking to the trees. In order to survive, they built primitive tree platforms to keep them off of the jungle floor where they were easy prey for the animals of the jungle. As they became more comfortable in their tree habitats, their building styles evolved and changed, allowing them to build tree huts and more permanent structures. These indigenous people were known as the Arboronians due to their extensive use of various kinds of wood and their advanced woodworking techniques.

Until recently, we've only known of their existence to the far south. During an exploratory phase, we have stumbled across something amazing. We've found Arboronian style tree platforms far to the north, among some small desert islands. You can see where the new discovery is on the map here:

This is an amazing discovery and it raises a number of questions. Were these buildings built by the same Arboronians we know of from the south? Was it another tribe that learned their techniques? And why did they move? During the time of chaos, it would have been a perilous journey, so why would they travel so far north? Were they looking for something? Trying to run away from something?

We may never know the truth about theses mysterious platforms, their origins, or their inhabitants. We can only assume they are the same Arboronian peoples we've uncovered in the past. If you find yourself sailing around or looking for adventure, visit the last known remaining tree platforms and see if you can figure it out for yourself. Take care, they are in various states of disrepair and we cannot be responsible for your safety in the trees.

Until then, enjoy these documentary photographs our archaeological team has taken.
