Location

Miller’s Isle is located on a large island north of Olympia. The city is separated from the mainland by a channel.

History

Miller’s Isle was first founded as a fishing colony in 160e. The city experienced little growth due to early overfishing and the founding of Withrowvia in 210e, which became the fishing center of the Coalition. After the discovery of Eldar ship-building facilities in 270e and the drive to create warships for the Sovereign War of 280e the city began to experience massive growth. Today, the growth has continued to carry over as naval commercial routes have begun to be heavily used and ships are in demand.

Recently the Coalition Council has requested the construction of a new armada to combat the demonic menace in the South.

Miller’s Isle has been ruled by a single, elected official since 250e. Elections are held every 10e. The past 100e have been dominated by the Freemont Family, human shipbuilding tycoons. Xavier Freemont has ruled the last 20e.

Culture

Miller’s Isle is home to the legend of the Fishermen. The Fishermen were water wizards of old who were said to have founded Miller’s Isle and brought fish to the region. They were famed to have the powers of creating objects and life from thin air as well as divination of the future. Today they are long forgotten except in children’s stories.
