Natural Resources

This island, along with Endurance Island, does not spawn commodities. The commodities market buys diamond gems.


Alpha's buildings are typically puns, but there is no overarching naming scheme beyond this.

The name "Alpha," like all of the Midnight Ocean's capital islands, comes from a Greek letter: Alpha (Α α).

Alpha is ruled by Vilya, and is reserved for Event Blockades.

Alpha Island has long been the bustling trade center and favorite place to docktart. Alpha is the capital of the Diamond Archipelago, and is located in the center of it.

In addition to being the capital of the archipelago, Alpha is widely considered to be the capital of Midnight Ocean.

The Alpha Island monument is located northeast of the palace.

Alpha Island is the home of the central Azure memorial, which is located just outside the palace.
