The Burning Archipelago is a collection of cities on the surface of Golarion's sun, that are tethered together by magic and surrounded by translucent bubbles that protect its inhabitants from the worst of the star's heat and radiation.[1]


The Burning Archipelago was created by fire-immune creatures such as efreet and salamanders, who wished to dwell near the sun, but not be constantly buffeted about by convection and solar flares. They created the magical bubbles so that non-fire-resistant creatures could stay there with only minimal magic to protect them, and tethered them to each other to keep them in close proximity; they are all within a few hundred miles of one another.[1]
