Skull & Shackles
Most of the islands’ rice and sugar plantations are centered around Kora, the seat the isles’ administration. The crops are sold to the less self-sufficient islands in the Shackles, and the trained thralls that work these fields also serve as a commodity to be traded to slavers. Tiny fishing settlements dot the city’s coastline, but the inhabitants here are little better than slaves themselves, paying a crushing tax and barely eking out a subsistent living. Brutal overseers keep the entire operation running, mercilessly driving the platoons of slave labor and ultimately working them to their deaths.
