This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!
Dariya'ko is a Beldrobbaen/Sharen colony close to the surface in the mist sea, being used by the Sharen as a training camp for their slave army.
Dariya'ko serves the Vel'Sharen as both a foothold in the overworld and a penal colony to send criminals and slaves. It is located immediately south of where Chel'el'Sussoloth would be, in a rocky valley area heavy with mist--the main mode of travel between the upper and lower reaches is by mana-powered lifts. Similar to Machike, Dariya'ko has an underworld half and surface half. Due to its proximity to Chel and Machike, Dariya'ko is subjected to attacks by Sarghress forces.
The majority of the penal colony's inhabitants are citizens and criminals from Chel, sent to work for the Vel'Sharen as indentured slaves. Along with the presence of Sharen troops, Earth tribe Black Sun allies of Sarv'swati's patrol the surrounding area and police the slaves. The facility environment is outright oppressive, with some of the slaves formerly being citizens who were falsely led to believe the colony was habitable.
During the district war between the Sharen and Sarghress, Dariya'ko fell under siege by Sarghress forces led by Quain'tana after a group of Highland Raiders sabotaged the penal colony's defenses and freed its slave population.
