Rise of the Dreamer
The Shattered Isles is the pejorative term used by many for the scattered islands that lie around Khorva. Many of these islands house nothing but primitive tribes on desiccated sandbars, but others are home to rich cultures and sprawling cities. Famous is the fortress-isle of Hanaan, which lies between Khorva and the White North. Hanaan is the famous headquarters of the Black Dragoons, an anti-pirate mercenary group. The fortress is a city-state on its own right, but it engages in no politics save for the governance of Hanaan. General Arghum Shine commands the dragoons, a rare half-dwarf paladin who fights from the back of a sea serpent.
To the southeast, lying between Khorva and Drakelund, lies a chain of volcanic islands known as the Burning Six. Hardy people mixed with the blood of flame elementals make their homes on these islands, and natural portals to the fire realm are rumoured to lay within the volcanoes’ hearts.
