Isla Carpathia is one of the Hollywood Islands, located several miles off the southern coast. It was previously a large section of Transylvanian mountains, excavated from their native land and imported by Harker Film Productions in 77 BBO. Though mostly used for location shoots, the island has a small population, primarily cryptids.
Formerly a selection of mountains and valleys in Transylvania, the island was detached via a three-month drilling project and airlifted intact to its new location, complete with native wildlife and population.
Despite being relocated to an entirely different latitude, longitude, and altitude, the island has retained much of its original climate. Mists and thunderstorms are unusually common, although the temperature manages to be enough for women to walk or fly around comfortably while wearing revealing lingerie.
Harker Film Productions had lost many of their original sets in a fire in 78 BBO, thought to be caused by either improperly-stored props or stray rays of sunlight. With backing from their mysterious benefactor, they engineered a simple solution: importing a section of Transylvania for authenticity. It was placed in what was then international waters, but since 2 AH has been considered part of the Hollywood Islands. The island is still self-governed and even has its own local currency: the Carpathian ducat.
Settlements on Isla Carpathia
Located on the northern side of the island, the town of Los Noches has a population of approximately 2,000, making it the largest settlement on Isla Carpathia. It serves as the seat of local government for the region.
The small town of Santa Ajo and its surrounding villages have a combined population of approximately 800.
