Fort Joy is a Location in Divinity: Original Sin 2. Fort Joy is the very first Region the player will find after completing the Tutorial. It is Act 1 of the game.

The main goal of this area is to escape Fort Joy, remove your Source Collar and eventually get onto the Lady Vengeance ship.

KEY NOTE: Once you have completed killing Bishop Alexandar and can talk to Malady, you will permanently lose access to this area and any quests you have not yet completed will be archived. Also, as macabre as it may sound, once you are at this point there is nothing stopping you from going back through the entire area and killing everything that moves for extra XP and loot. However, do NOT kill Saheila or her allies in the caverns!! She will be critical to a quest chain in Act II.
