Daisy Street that goes through the center of the town extends well beyond the town limits and heads north. The beginning of reservation land is a man-made irrigation trench. On the south side of the trench, it's the town limits. In and north of the trench and that is considered the sovereign land of the SOTA (South Oregon Tribal Alliance) Reservation. The Casino and the hotel and the tribal community center there in are just on that northern side of the border, giving the town and tourists easy access to the tribe's money making businesses. Further north from these two locations is a stretch of nearly untouched land. The only thing that mars the virgin landscape is the four-lane road between town and the residential area of the reservation.


North of town is the Southern Oregon Tribal Alliance Reservation. Like a flower blooming on a slender stem after a few miles of road between town and reservation, there is a settlement of houses and lots nestled at the edge of the coast to the west, woods to the north and woody hills and mountains to the east and further north that create that side of the valley. On the southwest side of the modern neighborhood of homes of various states of repair and size is a step back into history. A row of Miluk plank houses is built for historical and ceremonial purposes. A massive totem pole greets everyone coming into the residential area on the west side of the road. The variety of homes in this area is outstanding. Empty lots to large multi-storeyed homes with everything between like tents, R.Vs, some have even at least outwardly gone with traditional plankhouses.

The reservation is outside of MACUSA jurisdiction and also outside of the Statute of Secrecy. Rules of Common Sense are law here.

Sacred Preserve Land

This area of wooded foothills and sea cliffs is dense with magical creatures. A cave leads into the Sacred Caves where the magical school is here. Even though there is no veil between magic and non-magic people on the Reservation like there is in the rest of the states and world, that brings a level of reverence and respect for the magical area and those without magic tend to steer clear of these parts.


To the north of the residential area of the reservation is thick woods. While there might be some magical creatures, this area is more on the safe side. Children and adults alike come here for some wilderness recreation like camping, hunting, and fishing.

Coyote Pond

Across a packed dirt and gravel road from the sports field area to the southeast is tucked a small patch of marshland around a pond. It is often used as a swimming hole for the residents. Ducks, geese, frogs, some fish that don't mind murky water all live here.

Sports Fields

Nothing like the sports arenas of Rocklin High School in town, a rough not to regulation baseball diamond sits on the south side of a sandy field that is marked with spray paint to draw the lines of whatever game the local athletes would like to play.



If you have a property on the reservation things are done a bit differently than the rest of the grid. The reservation is treated similarly to how the game does apartment buildings. Every residence on the Reservation is found in one room without the typical directionals. Titles for the residences and their directory pages have a bit of giving in creative license. The street names available are Miluk Road, Lower Coquille Road, Upper Coquille Road, Yelis Road, and Plankhouse Circle. Please select one of these streets, check for an unused number 1-50. Compile an address for your property. Type the coordinates of the property into the box below and click on the 'Create Location Page' button. Example: d-1-8-1. or d-1-8-# where # is the # found in the exit alias. On the new page, change the title of the new page to be: SOTA Reservation - ### _ Rd/Circle - Surname Residence. (Example SOTA Reservation - 22 Plankhouse Circle - Chapowits Residence. Fill out the information in the edit box (perhaps use the +wiki/location command when in the residence), input tags (copy the bottom line of the +wiki/location output for the location tags). Save. Enjoy!

SOTA: The Southern Oregon Tribal Alliance

The Southern Oregon Tribal Alliance — alternatively called SOTA, the Tribal Alliance, or simply "the Tribes" — is a federally recognized Native American tribe of Hanis Coos, Miluk Coos, Coquille, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw people in Oregon. Though these tribes are the most populous, SOTA welcomes First Nations people of any tribe.

While members of SOTA can be found living all over southwest Oregon, the largest concentration can be found on the Mith-Ih-Kwuh Indian Reservation. The Res is named for the region itself; Mith-Ih-Kwuh is Miluk for "Morning Star", a reference to one of the many legends connected to the land. Not all members of the Tribes live on the Res; there are plenty of tribe members living within the borders of Mythic Wood itself. Though the more modern residential area of the Res is somewhat removed from the town, most locals think of it as part of Mythic Wood, and people come and go freely between the two settlements.

Deeper into the northern lands of the Res, the rare visitor might feel that they've stepped back in time. It is there that one may find tribe members living a lifestyle long forgotten by most, looking to the land to provide food, water, and shelter. This isn't to say that modern influences are nonexistent, but they are rare. There is almost no sign of modern technology, which has a tendency to malfunction in this territory; a sign of the spirits' disapproval, say the shamans.

Blood Quantum

It is important to note that most members of the Tribal Alliance are far from pure-blooded American Indians. The "blood quantum" — the degree of Indian blood in a person's ancestry — required by the Tribes is only 1/16th. So the vast majority of members are not immediately recognizable as American Indian by their appearance.


SOTA is governed by a Tribal Council. Five elders sit on the Council, each voted into office by the Tribes. Elders serve a five year term, and their terms are staggered so there is an election each year for one of the seats.

The Tribal Council is the ruling body of the Tribes. They legislate tribal law and hold court when it is broken. Only three members of the Council need to be present to hold court, but all five must vote on legislation.


For the most part, people of the Southern Oregon Tribal Alliance speak English. Most of the historic languages of the various tribes are extinct. There have been efforts to revitalize the Coquille, Coos, and Siuslaw languages, but there are few that speak any of them fluently, and therefore few opportunities to practice.
