The all mighty Ellian Kingdom was born surrounding the El until the day of the El Explosion, scattering the El all across Elrios giving birth to many villages and kingdoms.
The Elsword world consists of a major supercontinent called Elrios. This supercontinent split into two continents, Lurensia and Fluone, due to the explosion of the El in the Festival of Harmony.
The Elrios supercontinent has been divided into two continents, Lurensia being the western one. Due to the El, Lurensia housed a fertile and prosperous environment and at the same time, filled it with the supreme energy of green earth.

Due to the reawakening of King Nasod, the Nasod inhabitant was progressively returned to patrolling the island and have also gained the assistance of a Mercenary group known as The Black Crow.

From the Velder Kingdom in Lurensia, one can pass through the Velder Marina to the eastern Elrios Continent called Fluone.
Hamel is the capital of the greater Senace Kingdom of Southern Fluone. An ancient city founded after the El Explosion by Denif where the Water El was. The grand city itself is surrounded by the residential Resiam area which connects the capital to the waterways which control the flow of water through the region.

Tirnog is the heart of the Red-Demon Army's land. A ghastly valley overlooked by Castle of Shadows. In the aftermath of the Red-Demon Army's failed campaign in Elrios, the Dream Demons under its command fell under new management and have constructed a new village, Magmelia, in the area.
