Lifeform Islands Fantasy 5

Some living islands start as creatures on the muddy ocean floor, where they scavenge rocks, minerals, organic debris and artifacts. Other islands have volcanic origins. As the islands emerge from the water they harden and their colors are bleached. They are now fossil islands. Eventually they may rise and become clouds, or spin off into black space.

Each living island has its own story. Island visitors have added stories of their own.
