Welcome to ENDLESS DIAMOND SKY! We are an animation personified site set both in the animated world and present day San Francisco. A terrible darkness is spreading through the animated realm, driving everyone from their homes and into unknown territory that we know as reality. Now they find themselves at a crossroads: do they fight for their world or do they turn their back on it and make San Francisco their home?
What will you choose?

during the day the mysterious forest is beautiful and full of life. however, there is something odd about these woods, something seems to be lurking, seems to be watching. not to mention the fact that at night the forest is rumored to be a bit different, a bit darker, a bit more... evil?
with dirt and sand blowing through the wind, how could a savanna be a location anyone would want to be? full of open land, exotic plants, and a wonderful watering hole (along with some rocks to jump into it with), there is far more to it than meets the eye.
once upon a time, this city was bustling and bright and full of life. now the streets are empty, with roots breaking up the concrete and trees bursting through windows and doors. there is no one living here, not as far as you know...
have you ever been anywhere so hot? flies buzz around your head and vines seem to creep closer as you traverse through these woods, full of wonder at what could be over the next root, or behind that next vine. perhaps you could even swing, or climb up to the tops in hopes of finding a treehouse. you never know what may exist in a thick rainforest such as this.
long ago a king lived here, a kind king who served his people well. everyone laughed and drank and smiled and danced every night, just as good subjects do. until the evil came and destroyed it all. what was once grand is now falling to pieces, with towers crumbling a bit more every single night.
lost between trees and mountains alike, this freshwater lake is a wonderful place to take a dive, stretch your legs, or breath through your gills. perhaps you could even skinny dip, if its dark enough?
now this is quite the predicament. you never know where the arch may drop you off - and this time, it happened to be someplace quite empty, and quite far away from the mainland. a deserted island is a great place to be, as long as you know how to take care of yourself...
once it was the height of technology, a central hub of passing vessels traversing the solar system. overlooking earth it was home to over a thousand citizens, and visited by countless more. now the station lays abandoned, a silent sentinel above earth's atmosphere; somehow still working despite its empty corridors. something happened here, try not to trust the silence too completely.
waves crash and rain falls into the sea that never seems to end. the saltwater rushes around you, something that only the most skilled of swimmers can handle on a good day. are you daring enough to swim through them yourself?
every uprising needs a camp to spend the night in. full of supplies, courage, and the belief that we can stop the evil from taking over, the encampment is a great place to rest your feet or train for a future fight.
tucked away in a quiet park, the portal to the animated realm stands alone and unassuming. san francisco locals may step across this bridge without a clue, but anyone who belongs to the other world will find themselves transported to any one of the animated locations...
located in a serene neighborhood of san francisco, not far from the bridge itself, is a small street of apartments that the locals find seemingly hard to move into... the first floor of each building has various offices, a dining center, and more, all for the tenants to use as they need!
serving as the main central business district, the financial district homes many of san francisco's law firms, real estate firms, banks, corporate headquarters, and more. come here to serve many of your important service needs and visit some of the tallest buildings around!
want to get out and about? enjoy a calming walk in golden gate park, or cross the golden gate bridge. the three mile park houses two museums, beautiful gardens, and the amazing california academy of sciences, home to an aquarium, a planetarium, and so much more! if you want a beautiful view of the bridge or some military history, consider visit presidio of san francisco!
enroll in a class! we have plenty of wonderful schools to choose from. interested in the arts? attend the academy of art university! wanting something great for your post-grad studies? we've got university of california, berkeley! looking to study something a bit different? come to san francisco state university!
there are many cultural activities throughout san francisco. come to chinatown, the largest chinatown outside of the country itself! or maybe visit alcatraz island, a place known for housing famous convicts of all shapes and sizes. or maybe you want to visit fisherman's wharf, full of all sorts of attractions, like the wax museum or the cannery shopping center! or, even, the ghirardelli soda fountain? there's much to learn about in this city!
want to sit back and relax, or go out for a bit of fun? there's plenty to do - come visit our lovely zoo, with over 1,000 endangered and rescued animals! want something a bit different? pier 39 stands to be the best place to visit in all of san francisco. surrounded by stunning bay views, you can shop, amuse yourself at the video arcade, watch sea lions rest, ride the double-decker carousel and more! there's plenty of fine dining and fun family activities to be had - even an aquarium!
need help around the city? here's where you'll find the ever-welcoming police, the friendly firemen, the hospital, and other specialty locations such as the dmv! we even have a warm and inviting library if you want to sit around and read for a bit.
