Skies of Arcadia
A Rock Reef runs from the toroid area of Mid Ocean roughly east west through the gap that separates the north and south sections of the Broken Continent all the way to the peaks of the Danalii Mountain Range on the eastern continent. The double-hulled ships of Nasr are the only wooden ships tough enough to penetrate this reef to regularly visit the trade town of Maramba which lies on the northern edge of the southwestern broken Continent just below the Stone Reef. Since Nasr fears allowing too many Valuan merchant ships into Nasrad at once for fear of Valua using them to smuggle an invasion force, most Nasr-Valuan trading is done in Maramba. This works out well for both nations as the metal-hulled Valuan ships can also penetrate the reef, and taking Maramba would start, not end, a war so the Armada stays away from it. Unfortunately, since most of Nasr’s naval strength is centered around the straits to the north, this creates an area where pirates can operate effectively, although not entirely risk free as a Nasr Naval contingent is based in Maramba.
