Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States
Jan 12th 2023
Name: Buccaneer’s Arc
Location: Northwest coast of Ceannar on the Staplefish Bay
Population (approx.): 200-400 (varies wildly)
Brief: The coast of Ceannar features a number of island chains, both long and short. The islands north of the border between Ceannar and Noldrune form a lesser known, infrequently patrolled and sparse inhabited archipelago. Thus, over the years since the fall of Ta’arna, it has become home to a variety of ne'er-do-wells both land and sea based, earning the sobriquet Buccaneer’s Arc. Hidden settlements near quiet coves are home to infamous pirates and famous buccaneers, sometimes the same person depending on the flag they fly and the alliances they keep.
Geography: The Buccaneer’s Arc is a semi-circle of islands forming the border between the Lesser Staplefish Bay to the south and west and the greater (and much larger) Staplefish Bay to the north. Most of the hidden harbors can be found along the eastern coasts facing the greater waters. Merchant and Naval vessels traverse one main channel, avoided by the pirates, to ports of the smaller bay. The islands are wind-swept, scrub covered and relatively flat compared to the great Karst spires of the southern coast.
