Ancather Spits was originally located on the Malachite Ocean. An inscription on a rock to the north west reads, "This island were fashioned by Artemis."
Acanthaster Spits is named after the starfish genus acanthaster, which includes the Crown-of-Thorns Starfish. This is probably the most well-known species, and notorious for its coral-eating destructiveness. They are especially rife in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The starfish's long spines release a neurotoxin if touched or stepped on, which can cause intense pain for several hours, nausea, vomiting, and swelling.
On November 26th, Azarbad the Great took control of the island as part of its opening for colonization.
