Pirates of the Dragon Seas
The Amarantine archipelago is surely the farthest-flung outpost of humankind, settled in two waves of immigration.
The initial group were followers of the Old Faith called the Melori. The Melori offshoots of the College of Lore and Circle of the Land preserve antique human traditions no longer practised on the mainland.
The Lords of the Isles
The second wave of human immigration was one of conquest. Exiles from a political purge in Human Kingdom arrived with aristocratic ideals and well-armed ships, subjugating the Melori. These self-styled “Lords of the Isles” have never admitted their dispossession, and consider themselves a semi-autonomous province of Human Kingdom.
