Islaye

A large island off of the coast of the mainland about about 400 miles north to south and 125 miles east to west.

Other than the large harbor at Wexland most of the coast is very rocky and the seas around the island extremely treacherous.   The island posts a population of nearly 2 million with 1/5 of them living in the city of Wexland.

The island is famous for both the the sheep and orchards sadly other than this the island is very short of resources and depends on imports from the mainland for metals and even most wood as very little outside of orchards remains on the island.

Islaye was never officially conquered by the Imperial Holy Army but over 800 years ago the last sailing vessels were sunk and the island became under control of the Empire even though the local Royal family remained in charge.  Five years ago the island declared its independence during the civil war and has negotiated treaties with both the Imperial and Holy Empire.

Over the last 3 years Islaye smuggled in enough wood to build the first Gaellon not part of the Empires navy.  The bad news is once it became known wood imports have become nearly impossible to get.

All of history, it is a lie…

 

After your travels back in time you have found out most of what you were taught was a lie, based on a truth but only slightly.

 

You were told (<u>http://voyageoftheintrepid.obsidianportal.com/wikis/holy-imperial-empire</u>) that 1500 years ago the Erathis  Goddess of Civilization started the great war due to demonic activity…

 

What we know now is the events started 2500 years ago when Eldm Mordelan High Priest of the Watchful Eye ignored the warnings and traveled to the realms of the demons, and they followed here back.

 

At this time Islay was about 10 percent larger than it currently is and covered with Trees and ruled by the 4 blessed ones representing the great dragon L’Ten’Uch, it was being assulted by the the Demons and the armies of Erathis.   The king and had called back the 4 great families who had colonized the land across the seas due to the great losses the Kingdom had during the war.

As the party returned to the future 5 chests appeared in the room.  Each with one character’s name clearly on them and against the far wall was a book case contianing the missing years of history.

To sum it up.

The four great noble families Forgen, Oakstone, Sharlton and Teller returned from the mainland and the eldest daughter of each noble married a Blessed one and their children took the names of Hillsford, Peartree, Shepintons and Tanner  and swore service to the son of L’Ten’Uch king of Islay.

 

For 500 years a battle raged in the end Islay had taken control of the Sea and contained the demons on the far side of the sea using the secrets of the Wards, powered by the great Seal in the Capital (this was the area of land to the West of the current Isle of Islay that no longer exists. For 200 years peace stood but unknown to the children of islay the dragons were not the only ones to breed with humans.  Karl Benestrom Child of the Delware greatest of the 9 managed to destroy the great seal and the capital of Islay and at the same time a huge fleet of ships from the land across the sea arrivied to assult islay, only by joining with the Erathis and L’Ten’Urch accepting banashment from islay was the force driven back and history as you know it started.
