    Re: Skull Island is based on... The United States of America (and all of North Americ

    To all the Caribbean Island comments, I have one word: Tikis!

    An explanation of said word would be that Tikis appear on Skull Island which only appear in real life on the Pacific Islands.

    Cool Ranch - The western part of America after the colonies
    Mooshu - China

    If Marelybone is ever made in P101 it would be Great Britain
    If Polaris is ever made it would be France because of Nepoliquin (pretty sure I spelled that wrong).
    Skull Island is based off Mexico and southern America though?

    The water moles are tribes who learned magic, and sacrificed themselves by throwing someone to a volcano-like ancient mexico and latin american too (there are still some "witchdoctors" in real life out there too )

    In Tradewinds skyway, monquistadors took over the land which was originally for the water moles and wild monkeys (Gold Mine-which Mexico was FULL of gold before the spanish stole the gold which again proves this) and puerto mico is monquistador's main area in skull island.

    Monquista is based off of Spain as monquistadors are conquistadors which proves again why they can be found in both Azteca in Wizard101 and Skull Island in Pirate101.

    Valencia is Italy

    Cool Ranch-yes, there were a ton of different type of western types all over the world, but it does go more with mexican-early USA times including Texas. Specially since there are many spanish names, Santo Pollo Skyway is the closest to texas history.

    MooShu isn't just China, but Japan and a few other places too. Remember that Samurai's are from China and Ninjas are from Japan.

    Polaris is France AND Russian combined.

    Marleybone is England-UK

    i agree with everything but aren't both samurai and ninjas from japan. I think China just more or less had solders armed with swords(i don't think they were considered samurai) and bows/rifles how ever i think the monks in mooshu are based on the monks in China, i think...

    Personally, I think many folks overthink this stuff that really doesnt matter. lol Its just a fantasy story.

    However, to clarify a few facts...

    Samurai, Bushi (another term for Samurai), Ninja, are all references from feudal Japan.

    Shaolin Monks... are Chinese (Karate/Kung Fu).

    I think you are all wrong!










    Just kidding! In seriousness, anything not about Skull Island, can go here.

    Re: Skull Island is based on... The United States of America (and all of North Americ

    It seems that the different worlds are based on specific time periods, rather than just countries. For example, W101's Avalon is based on the King Arthur mythology, which took place in Middle-Ages England, and Marleybone is based on England during the Victorian Era (I think). Skull Island as a whole seems to be based on the colonial era, covering North America, Central America, Caribbean, and Pacific Islands. The actual island does seem to be based on early America. Cool Ranch focuses more on the romanticized Western Frontier of America.

    Valencia also has a bit of a Spanish influence (Valencia and Aragon are Spanish cities).
