Sfant Umbra began as a secret mercenary business within the depths of the Aht Urhgan Empire. With the rise and fall of business it slowly faded from memory. That is, until a descendant of the creator happened across some old parchments one day...

PostSubject: Gwynham and Enid Ironheart- Mappers and Explorers   Fri May 29, 2009 6:21 pm

All of the maps of Quon and Mindarta that Adventurers use owe much to a father and daughter. Gwynham and Enid Ironheart lived at a time when travel was full of perils. No form of fast and easy transport was available so it was done by ship, on foot and perhaps by chocobo.

The Vanadiel Tribune says:

Gwynham Ironheart. Seaman. Adventurer. Cartographer.

Ironheart was once the captain of a trading vessel plying the Bastore Sea, but a chance meeting with disaster cost him both his ship and his crew. Never one to dwell on misfortune, the elderly Hume took up the profession of adventurer and set out on foot to map all the lands of Vana'diel. His seemingly ludicrous plan was originally the source of much derision and amusement; however, once the precision of his cartography became well known amongst sailors and travelers, the Kingdom of San d'Oria and the Republic of Bastok acknowledged the value (and danger) of his work with financial backing.

Ironheart eventually met a heroic demise at the hands of Orcish marauders while exploring the last unknown frontier of the Quon continent--Valdeaunia. His quest was continued by his daughter Enid, who traveled to the continent of Mindartia and successfully mapped the remaining territories

The maps were so accurate that the maps used today only contain minor changes and adjustments.

The Monuments

The Ironheart's had a custom of leaving stone monuments and by studing these transcriptions a lot can be learned about Vana' diel. These incriptions can be found at:
