The Tortilles are a group of islands north of the main ridge of the Hesperean Sea. Further from the resource wealth of the mainland and the deep water trade routes, it grew as rough collection of traders and free spirits in the traditional ‘Draegnian’ way. It was ruled by a captain’s council primarily controlled by forces from Rafael, Mickaelin, Laenart and Donetel, and they made there capital at Crown Point on Donetel.
This lack of central structure (and Waystones) served them well during the Long Night, and most of these islands fared better than their Aerinorn counterparts. The resistance against the invaders was strongest here, and the heroes of the Dawn Wind frequented its many friendly ports.
The powers around the Malachite Throne in Aubris suffered for the loss of their colonies’ tribute during the Shattering nearly as hard as Aerinorns, and many a Draegnian captain has been eagerly awating a the trade winds to renew their profitable relations in the sunset sea.
