A mountainous island located in the middle of nowhere as the crow flies, Penglai Shan can only be reached by air. Being a paradise, there are no airport facilities, which is just as well as it’s a place of outstanding unnatural beauty.
Trillions of scented flowers grow amongst trees made of coral-bearing pearls. Everything shimmers and all the animals and birds are white. The Dew of Eternal Life flows in all the many streams and fountains, ensuring ongoing immortality — but only for those who are already immortal.
The island appears to be surrounded by water, but this is actually a protective wheeze. It’s really an element so insubstantial that nothing can float on it. That sinking feeling means just that. Unless, of course, you happen to be an Immortal.
