Iron Claws; Steel Dragon
This collection of islands, just off the coast of the Bright Kingdom, sits astride the main sea trade routes of the world. For many years they harbored dangerous but colourful pirates who preyed on the plentiful shipping. This, however, is now a thing of the past thanks to the efforts of the lords of the Bright Kingdom who sought to secure their shipping through the use of heavily armed warships. Systematically, the pirates were hunted down and brought to justice. The remaining pirates, mostly (wee folk), gave up the business and turned to fishing and cattle raising t earn their livelihood.
