All tiles on the overland map have a biome. The current biomes are:

  • Field
  • Forest - coniferous
  • Forest - broadleaf
  • Swamp
  • Foothills
  • Water (players can't travel here)
  • High mountains (players can't travel here)


When a mission happens on a tile, that mission takes place in an environment. The environment will be the same as the biome, with a few exceptions:

  • Field
  • Forest (eventually coniferous & broadleaf)
  • Swamp
  • Foothills
  • Cave
  • Dungeon
  • Town

An environment may be in the wilderness, or it may contain a site. The site determines the layout of the map, what types of scenery and furniture are found there, and what resources the players may gain from securing it.
