PostSubject: The Viera and the Wood   Wed Oct 22, 2008 5:27 pm

"Hidden village of viera in Golmore Jungle. Viera enclaves are scattered throughout the jungle, but all are warded against entry by those of other tribes or lands. Viera are reclusive by nature, living separate from their own kind, save when necessity demands. This isolation is in part made possible by the viera ability to hear the spirit voice of the Wood, and thereby know all the comes to pass within Her borders. Throughout the history of Ivalice, rarely have the viera ventured beyond the borders of the Wood, and few outsiders know of their laws or customs. Vieran villages are formed of massive trees linked by suspended paths, with dwellings and small shrines to the spirit of the Wood encircling the trunks. During the day, many viera come to a clearing in the village, where a glistering spring bubbles up from the earth, to meditate. Their leaders resides in the center of the village and governs according to the Word of the Wood. Those who perform the sacred ceremonial duties of salve-maker or wood-warder stand at her side, defending the ways of the village and of the viera. Compared to other races, the viera seem to move at a slower, more contemplative pace, more at peace with the flow of time. However, some younger viera have begun to question the wisdom of rejecting change in the midst of a rapidly developing Ivalce."

Eruyt Village is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is the hometown of every Viera in Ivalice, and is deeply connected to the forest. Only Viera can reveal the hidden path to it, as its pathway is covered entirely in a created substance called "Vision Dust", which is completely harmless to Viera, but clouds the minds of all other races. Eruyt Village is located deep in the Golmore Jungle. Despite the fact it's a jungle, the Viera still call it "The Wood."

The only people who live in the village are the reclusive Viera. Even then, "live" is a bit of an exaggeration, since they only meet in the town's centre near the middle of the day. The rest of the day, they will sleep around the entire forest, guarding its trees. The Viera, Jote, the elder sister of Fran, is the closest thing they have for a leader.

Since the village is part of the forest, the Viera refer to their own village as an actual living being. Whether the village does actually have a will of its own is debatable, but the Viera in it certainly think it has its own will.
