The stage will be inspired by “Hainei Shizhou ji” (“The Ten Islands in the Inner Sea”) which is a collection of Daoist phantastic stories dating back to the Han dynasty.

The stories center around the travel of Emperor Wu (141-87 BC) of the Han dynasty to the Queen Mother of the West, and the many fairies and immortals he heard of. The ten islands (Zuzhou, Yingzhou, Xuanzhou, Yanzhou, Changzhou, Yuanzhou, Liuzhou, Shengzhou, Fenglinzhou, and Jukuzhou) are places where immortals live a life of joy and insouciance.

The stage also includes an Easter Egg to the “Plan Salvation” stage by Team SII. Can you find it?
