Flying Islands - islands suspended in the air on the lines of force that cross the Three Worlds. Flying Island Heart rock is the substance that allows the islands to fly.

Their origin is unknown, though they are more prevalent in areas where mild weather is common. The skies of the Ataran Sea are teeming with them. Many show signs of past habitation, with partial ruins indicating the island may be a fragment of a much larger mass. Some species have legends which allude to powerful now vanished civilizations that lived on these larger masses, went to war with each other, and destroyed their flying cities in the process, leading to the creation of the many fragmented islands. The Golden Islanders tell of a plateau which was created when one of the large masses fell to the ground.
