Hawk's Isle

  • A relatively pleasant, fruitful island, the upper slopes are covered with forest; birds and other wildlife are frequently spotted.
  • Up to 12 small, natural, but unprotected harbors, exist throughout the west, and northern sides of Hawk’s Isle, each of which can hold no more than 3 ships.

History

  • Named for the pirate lord Hawk, who sailed the Inner Sea during the last days of Immurk’s reign.
  • Hawk was a rebel against Immurk’s leadership, and refused to subject his raids to the restrictions or tithe of King Immurk and his spymasters.
  • Hawk established Hawk’s Isle as a competing pirate haven to Immurk’s Hold, and drew dissatisfied captains from Immurk’s banner to his own.
  • In retaliation, Immurk sent small boats into each of Hawk’s harbors and under the cover of darkness the small crews holed and set fire to Hawk’s fleet.
  • The next morning Immurk began a blockade of Hawk’s Isle which was maintained for 2 months.
  • When Immurk’s crews finally anchored and set foot ashore they found handfuls of survivors were alive, all of whom were slain.
