Crescent Hill is a location in the world of Terra, located in South Midgard of Grazeus.
Crescent Hill is blanketed by red maple leaves and fragrant flowers. The stunning beauty may have resulted in Crescent Hill as the birthplace of religions. The Lunarin village often prepares for a sacred ceremony of flowers.
The Crescent Ceremony is a festival held every year to honor the heroes who founded Lunarin. Formerly held in the Alabastren Temple before it was closed down, the ceremony takes place in the Altar of the Moon. In the Ritual of the Blessings, the residents sing their praises and ask them to look after the people for another year. A wooden structure is created for the ceremony, and people gather flowers from the flower fields. In the Altar of the Moon, the people use the ceremonial vessels that balances the energy of the forest. During the ritual, the people read from the ceremonial tome, a book of spells formerly belonging to the Church of Navea. However, in recent years, the people, specifically outsiders, have strayed from the tradition, thinking of the ceremony as more of a nuisance than a blessing.
Recently, prior to the adventurer entering Crescent Hill, the ceremonial vessels, the tome, and the crescent gem were stolen from the people. It was later recovered in the Mistwalker Tribe area, a camp site for the Gnomes, and the gem from Odum Ryan, third prince of the Makars, in Alabastren Temple. The village chief, thankful for recovering the sacred items, rewards the Envoy of Gaia the key to the Starlight Treasure Chest. When the treasure chest was opened, an ancient, broken machinery was found and needed repairs from the dwarves in Cactakara Forest.

Crescent Flower Field
Crescent Flower Field, located south of Lunarin, is a vast field of flowers. It is swarming with sprites. With the ceremonial vessels stolen from the people of Lunarin, the imbalance of power causes the flowers to morph into physical beings, the Flowertraps.
The entrance to the former village of Lunarin is found nearby.
A farm situated in the center of Crescent Hill, Clark Farm produces many of the crops, dairy, and meat products for Lunarin. It is run by Clark. However, several beetles have swarmed outside of Clark Farm, stressing Clark into ridding the beetles to protect his farm.
The Mistwalker Tribe is home to the Mistwalker Gnomes, located south of Clark Farm. The Mistwalkers have stolen the ceremonial vessels and the ceremonial tome and have hidden them in the camp.
Altar of the Moon
The Altar of the Moon, located west of Lunarin, is an altar containing a blue crystal, allowing several Eidolons to appear from time to time. The people of Lunarin come to the altar to celebrate the Crescent Ceremony, in which they read the ceremonial tome and make their blessings towards the altar.
Navea Outer District
The outer district of Navea is the gateway to the largest human city in Terra. Situated in the northwest of Crescent Hill, the area is subjected to large city walls that protect the city. Several birdbrains make their home near the water. Nearby is the entrance to Cactakara Forest.
The Temple of the Eidolons is located in the outer district, in which scientists have build a foundation to serve as the research facility for the summoning of the Eidolons.
Alabastren Temple Ruins
The ruins of Alabastren Temple is located north of Lunarin. In ancient times, the temple served as the area for the celebration of the Crescent Ceremony. However, it was later closed down by the Church and has been left in ruins. Within the temple lies an evil energy, which further explains the closure of the temple. Recently, the Makar and the Gnomes have patrolled the area, where the Makar prince has broken the seal to the temple in hopes of gaining the energy to defeat his brothers in battle.
