This article could contain outdated information that is inaccurate for the current version (1.57) of the game. It was last updated for 1.56.



Tempest Island is a World Conquest region located on the eastern edge of the world. It is an island map that features a large, rocky main island surrounded by several smaller islands. Formerly a Skirmish map, the old map layout can be seen in the main island, albeit rotated 90 degrees.

Logistical Locations

Waterways & Railway Lines

Due to being an Island Region, players are able to travel to the other side of the map by crossing the eastern border. When doing so, they are able to go to Fisherman's Row as if it was an adjacent region.

There are no permanent railway structures placed in this region, so player-made tracks are necessary to do train logistics. While Large Train logistics is possible in certain locations on the map, it is not recommended due to its limited range, and inability to link to other regions.

Water Wells

Industry

Due to being an Island Region, it's industrial world structures will NOT change with different war configurations. As such, these hexes can have varying levels of logistical sustainability.

This map will always include these logistical structures, which can provide various frontline needs.

Shipyards

There are six Shipyards located in the region:

Storage

  • Location(s) that contain a Seaport
    • The Iris
  • Location(s) that contain a Storage Depot
    • Liar's Haven
    • The Rush

At first glance, it appears to be a simple book. As you shift it between your hands, you feel something clanking around inside.
You tap the cover; It’s hollow.

Inside you find a hole carved out between the pages, revealing a generous amount of dried jerky bound with cedar twine. It smells delicious, but you know it’s worth too much to consume. Though your hunger might betray you.

It’s been ages since you’ve smelled decent meat.

You find a book titled “Volume I - A Brief History of Caoiva” and flip to a random page.
Carden Callahan, the fourth son of our first Archon, Iain Callahan, took it upon his shoulders to quell the riots in Whedon’s Row. The soldiers were reluctant to support him initially, due to his lack of experience in matters of warfare.

As unrest spread southwest to Ogmaran, Callahan, leading a small force of his own men, infiltrated the town and held it without shedding a drop of blood. Deft in the art of diplomacy, his silver tongue earned him a bevy of new followers. They commemorated his leadership with a name befitting the son of a legend.

Thus, the Brigade of the Eight Sons was formed. Callahan led them into battle, proudly bearing the honour of his brothers until his death at the hands of Velian rebels.

Trivia

  • An island on the pre-Naval Warfare map located northwest of The Rush was unofficially nicknamed "Chicken Nugget Island". That name was referenced in Update 46 Dev Branch Release Notes.[1]
  • The town of Alchimio Estate was located in Westgate before being moved to Tempest Island in War Machine, then to Stema Landing in Naval Warfare.
  • The map used to contribute to the World Conquest Victory Point (VP) counter, with Liar's Haven being that town. This was removed in Naval Warfare when the map was redesigned to be a purely Island Region. This trend continued for a while, up until War 113, when the map contained a Logi Hub and its VP being The Iris.
  • Tempest Island's Industry has changed multiple times over the course of the game, which drastically changed how logistics is handled there.
    • Prior to Naval Warfare, it was possible for Liar's Haven to contain a Logi Hub. After Naval Warfare, its potential as a Logi Hub was unclear until War 113, when Tempest Island contained a Logi Hub, but its location would be at The Iris.
