Gaea Island is a large island located in the Emerald Archipelago. There are two known routes from the island: Wrasse Island and Epsilon Island.

Gaea is also home to Sheepish Lefty, a black sheep.

Natural resources

This island spawns hemp and sugar cane. These resources can be bid on at the market.


While there are hints of a "Mother Earth" theme, in practice, Gaea does not have a consistent naming scheme.
