The Isolated Plateau is a region in Dragon Quest VIII that cannot be accessed normally by ship, as it is surrounded by steep cliffs. In order to reach it, the party must acquire the Illuminated sea chart from the Pirate's Cove. Both the village of Empycchu and the Godbird's Eyrie are located there. It is also possible to reach the World of Darkness from here.
A village that is isolated from the rest of the world. They worship the bird Empyrea as a god.
