Skull & Shackles
Just south of the eternal hurricane, The Eye of Abendego, lies a shattered chain of countless islands, rocks, and spires known as the Shackles. Already a haven for pirates and ne’er-do-wells, for almost forty years now, the region has been united beneath the rule of Hurricane King Kerdak Bonefist and his vessel, Filthy Lucre. In its brief existence, the so-called nation has already rebuffed two invasions, one each from Cheliax and Rahadoum. These attempts to quash piracy in the region and make the rich trade from Mwangi safer both met with disaster at the whims of the everlasting storm. Only Sargava openly supports the existence of the pirate alliance, using it as a buffer against Cheliaxian imperialism.
