The world in which Elona takes place is known as Ilva or Irva (it's not clear which English spelling and pronunciation is correct), which is currently in its eleventh era, known as Sierre Terre. The original Elona game itself takes place in the region of North Tyris, which is ruled from Palmia by King Xabi and Queen Stersha. The region was also the location of an ancient civilization known as Nefia.
Other regions of the world include Yerles, Eulderna, Zanan, Vindale Forest and South Tyris. Yerles and Eulderna are at war, with North Tyris often being caught in the crossfire. Zanan and the Elea of Vindale Forest are also at war, with rumors saying that the Vindale Forests are the source of the Etherwind. According to dialogue with NPC's, there once was an eastern nation called Karune, which was devastated and brought to ruin by the Ether Disease.
