Island in the Sky: Farhome

Farhome is an island dominated by its central feature: a volcano. Some say that it is the resting place of a long-dead primordial, or that the volcano exists due to an open portal to a fiery realm of the Elemental Chaos. Regardless of the how, the fact remains that the volcano is active and regularly discharges lava and ash into the sky. 

Needless to say, things can get pretty hot on Farhome. It has always primarily been home to the Genasi, and a couple thousand, of all elemental persuasions, call the island home. There are several thousand more Genasi spread throughout the world who consider Farhome their ancestral home. 

And so it is with great dismay that word spread from island to island that Farhome had been conquered, taken by the Dragonborn Empire of New Arkhosia, and bound to the Arkhosian earthmote. Many of the Genasi were able to escape during the invasion, but there were many who were no so lucky. The Genasi are a proud people and do not take to slavery well. 

Farhome is one of the crown jewels in the Arkhosians' Empire; a mighty, powerful people brought down and conquered, their symbol of power, the mighty volcano, subjugated to the will of the Dragonborn and helping to fuel the expansion of the Empire...
