Garden Cradle is a medium island located in the Onyx Archipelago. There are four known routes from the island: Charcoal Island, Raven's Roost, Kuhio Island, and Polaris Point.

Natural resources

This island spawns cowslip, hemp, and stone.


In the original naming scheme, Garden Cradle's building names all used nondescript nouns, which are generic nouns used where either a proper noun or a more specific common noun is expected. Buildings constructed since Findabhair gained control of the island are instead based on unflattering variations of the names of Viridian Ocean flags.
