Each of the isles of the Land of Green Isles, all pledge fealty to the rulers of the realm's largest portion, the Isle of the Crown. The southernmost of the region's main grouping, the Isle of the Crown is mostly forest and hills, with but a few stout mountains. Its main point of commerce is the Village of the Crown, but the island's true center is the great Castle of the Crown. Built and rebuilt for love, its spires and minarets catch the tropical sun and reflect it back as jewels. The realm's former king, Caliphim, is one who rebuilt it last as a love gift for his bride, Allaria, when he first sat down upon the Emerald Throne. Rebuilding his entire kingdom at the same time, these great tasks bonded a relationship between subjects and king which became more affectionate as years of peaceful rule, willingly isolated from the rest of the world, drew on. So strong was there loyalty to the rulers, that when Caliphim and Allaria died, the people accepted the temporary suzerainty of their chosen vizier Abdul Alhazred, without question, while awaiting the end of Princess Cassima's period of mourning.
When Alhazred's treacheries were at last unmasked, the deep shock at their own misplaced compliance with the blackguard was only overcome with the miraculous return of the king and queen from the Land of the Dead. The announcement of Cassima and Alexander's betrothal turned the kingdom's joy into happy delirium.
Cassima is now queen, and Alexander of Daventry king, of both the Isle of the Crown and the Land of the Green Isles. They rule from the Emerald Throne and the Castle of the Crown and are now bringing order from the chaos left by the vizier Abdul Alhazred's regency. The island is the home of the land's main source of transportation and commerce, a single ferry boat that has been run by generations of royal mariners. As long as the ferry is is in good repair, all commerce and trade goes well. If not, an occasional magic map can move folk of all types, but few goods.
