Balenos Olvia.png

Olvia is the first town you start out in. Located in the western half of Balenos, it's well-known for its thriving livestock and agricultural industries

Crop farming and bee keeping were originally the main sources of income for this village, but after trade began with Florin, herb farming and alchemy also became common trades.[1].


Olvia used to be the capital of the Kingdom of Balenos.[2]

The town, together with Calpheon, Keplan and Heidel, formed a military alliance to wage war against Valencia in the year 235.[3]

Afterwards the position of capital shifted to Velia.
