Skull & Shackles
Ninety years ago, the unpredictable elven witch Kaala Raingold came to the Shackles, flitting about from crew to crew like most of her seagoing kind. It was only after setting foot on the isle now called Kepre Dua that a miraculous change overcame the witch, who was inspired by either some unknowable magic or divine intervention. Calling herself Queen Kaala of the Veil, she soon began recruiting other Shackles elves with an evangelical fervor. “Listen to your blood,” she would say. “It calls you to Calistria and Kepre Dua.” As though enchanted, many flocked to her pale blue banner, and in a remarkably short time her settlement on the island, Alendruan Harbor, blossomed into a thriving port, soon boasting the largest population of elves in all the Shackles and occasionally even drawing adventurous continental land-dwellers to its shores. The settlement itself is a town of vibrant colors, devoted to the piratical lives of its inhabitants as well as to an uninhibited worship of the goddess that would make even the elves of Kyonin blush.
