That spoiler has taught me something depending on the job you choose your assumptions of the princes will differ. It seems if your a whm you will take a liking to Peijue or w/e rather then trion and if you are a pld you will like trion more then peijue. That cutscense depics trion as hasty and arrogant. And in pld cutscense it shows peijue as undermining and miscivious.

what happened to Tavnazia

When you start WHM AF3, you get a cutscene with the following, though the odds anyone still cares are probably slim:


Trion in full armor storms out of Pieuje's Room
Trion : What foolishness is this? I have done nothing wrong!
Trion : Think of some way to defeat the beastmen, if you've time to worry over me!
Pieuje : Brother!
Trion exits.
Pieuje : Let me guess. Narcheral sent you to convince me, no?
Pieuje : Know you why Narcheral frets so?
Pieuje : It was twenty years ago that armies of the alliance offered the Marquisate of Tavnazia as bait. The enemy was given false word on where the leaders of Tavnazia would gather.
Pieuje : As hordes of beastmen launched their assault, a daring company of volunteers struck the unguarded gates of the enemy.
Pieuje : There they found and slew the Shadow Lord. But his horde reduced Tavnazia to ash and smoke.
Pieuje : In all likelihood, their lord, Marquis Altedour, never suspected betrayal from his stalwart allies.
Pieuje : The horde had come upon them at night. Valiantly he fought to defend his keep. In the end it fell, and he fled the city. Near the necropolis, though, they caught him!
Pieuje : Though he felled seven hundred of the enemy, there he met his end.
Pieuje : The alliance sent troops to aid in the defense of Tavnazia, but none can deny that it brought ruin upon her.
Pieuje : Marquis Altedour is my... I... What am I to do?
Narcheral walks in.
Narcheral : Prince Pieuje, are you there?
Pieuje : Oh, Narcheral... Come in!
Narcheral : Prince Pieuje! I just saw Prince Trion, and he seemed well!
Pieuje : Yes... I'm sure he seems well to your eyes.
Narcheral : Surely Prince Trion will learn of all this, my lord! We will lose this chance to strengthen the influence of our faith!
Pieuje : You mean the cleansing of the damned, and offer them atonement by my hand?
Narcheral : No, my lord! To rid ourselves of the threat of the dead! My lord, the heir to the throne of San d'Oria must not jest of atonement!
Pieuje : I am sorry. I have a plan. I will not allow my brother to deploy troops.
Narcheral : Argh! If this goes on, all will be discovered! Chaos will consume San d'Oria--no, all of Vana'diel!
Jeronne appears out of nowhere.
Jeronne : Narcheral, I have news.
Jeronne : We received word that a dark stalker walks in the guise of Marquis Altedour towards Fei'Yin.
Jeronne : In that place festers also souls of nations beyond Tavnazia. Perhaps there he seeks an army... :
Narcheral : An army of the dead!? It is hard to believe, but we'd be fools not to.
Jeronne : Great forces of the dead still rest in Eldieme. We have also discovered an item they all carry when they appear.
Jeronne : We failed to obtain one, but they say it is called a Tavnazia bell.
Narcheral : Hmm... Perhaps it is a signal of some sort. Let us make use of it in our strategy once we have it.
Jeronne : Well, then...
Narcheral : Yes, we cannot wait for orders from the expeditionary forces. We shall send a cadre of worthy adventurers.
Narcheral : Make for Fei'Yin upon acquiring the Tavnazia bell in Eldieme.
Narcheral : Greater rewards await those who serve with distinction. May fortune favor you!

Actually Tavnazia is off of the area where Cape Terrigan is, not Selbina. You can check it using your Region Map. The Swirling Vortex to port you to Lufaise Meadows is in the Dunes, though.

tavnazia is in fact near selbina... accessible through promivon.

eldieme necropolis is in fact just a tomb for ancient elvaan nobles.

Regarding Tavnazia
# Jul 05 2004 at 3:54 PM Rating: Decent
I think Ravid might be right. Tavnazia or something like "The ruins of Tavnazia" may be accessible through Eldieme Necropolis after installing the next expansion pack. that's my guess anyway

Also, thanks Chibi for the info

As far as I and anyone else knows at the moment the Tavnazians were Elvaans that got betreyed in the crystal war 20 years ago. The King of sandoria sent someone to tell the beastmen that all the leaders had gathered there, or something like that, and the beastmen completly demolished Tavnazia while Windy and Sandy Jeuno and Bastok all went to the Northlands to take out the dark lord. When all was over not one person in Tavnazia survived but the dark lord had perished. And where the Eldimie Necropolis is today is where Tavnazia was before they got bent. That is why you see alot of Dark Elvaan there ^^ Dark stalkers, Ka's ect. (well at least thats all the story i have gotten form doing my whm AF quests. i may have some things mixed up but you get the drift of the story :P)

Actually the Tavnazians were not betrayed. What happened was they were to act as the decoy for the invading beastmen while the three nations moved to strike the Shadowlord. I know this doesn't make much sense since the way the nations are laid out this would be very weak tactics. Anyway the other nations moved a great army into Tavnazia in order to hold off invading forces. (this is why you see an army entering the capital with the banners of the other countries) In a surprise attack a massive invasion force of orcs, giants, and behemoths closed in on the capital city of Tavnazia and decimated the defending forces and civilians. A few escaped to the Tavnazian safehold but I won't say how and ruin CoP for people. Anyway during the battle Altedour and a small force of Tavnazians fled the land and were chased until they were finally slain in Batallia Downs. The orcs used some sort of secret weapon and it destroyed the land bridge to Tavnazia.

On a side note, San d'Oria and Tavnazia had the strongest relationship of the kingdoms. Tavnazia originally was part of the great Elvaan kingdom but went it's own way in customs and religion. While many Tavnazians were Elvaan and the royal family was Elvaan the country of Tavnazia was inhabited by many Hume as well because it is close to Bastok. The late queen was even a Tavnazian princess if you read the San d'Orian cutscene for the rank 5 mission. So San d'Oria did not betray Tavnazia, it was just overrun.

You're right for the most part on most of that, but when you get rank 10 for san d'oria you find out the truth about what happened in Tavnazia. The prince of Tavnaszia and next in line to become king was entrusted by the San d'Orians to protect Light Bringer, the sword of King Ronparre, in a long lasting tradition held between Tavnasia and San d'oria. Well, the sword was intrusted to them because its power was to great for anyone save the Dragon King it once belong to to yield. In their act to decoy the enemy forces while all the other nations marched on the Shadow Lord, the prince chose not to heed the warnings of his family and tried to yield the weapon Light Bringer. In doing so he set off an explosion that ended up destroying the city of Tavnazia and what the rest of the world assumed was a secret weapon created by the orcs. The orcs just wanted to take Light Bringer and destroy it for they blaim it for the cause of their hatred of the races of Vana'diel. Also, the San d'Orians and Tavnazians have always been close due to the custom of the San d'Orian kings taking the daughter of the Tavnazian king as his queen and vice versa.
