The Thousand Needles is an odd area, containing dozens of spires of stone and earth. These form a jagged, confusing maze, but also provide shelter from the elements. As such, a small village exists here with rope bridges connecting the spires in a crisscrossing pattern, suspended dozens of meters above the earth. The villagers here are mostly safe from harm thanks to their high perches, but there are dangerous birds in the area, notably the giant vultures that prey on the weary and wounded. Recently the area has changed as temples of earth and rock have been built atop the spires, and many of its rope bridges replaced by ones of stone as they now connect these communities, calling themselves the Air Nation, to one another.
