Heroic Adventure to Forge the Empress
The Seas of Prosperity
The Middle Isles are the islands and peninsulas that encompass the realm of adventure. Made wealthy and powerful by the trade in silks and spices that relies on their merchant fleets, the Middle Isles serve as the crossroads between the desert lands of the West, the vast ocean and strange shores of the East, the barbarian steppes of the North, and the raw jungles of the South.
Once part of the great Jade Empire, now the Middle Isles are split into a number of different nations, the largest and most ambitious of which is Zhongdao, which at times had conquered the full of the Middle Isles.
Now, short, bitter wars are commonplace, as each nation vies for land, wealth, and trade routes on the clear seas and verdant land of the Middle Isles.
