Drabat This is the island/city where you guys will start. A group of pilgrims have pooled their money together to buy tickets aboard a luxury vessel headed for the holy island.
The Holy Island This is where the gods of law live, and where all souls must go when they leave their mortal bodies. Pilgrims flock to the island year after year in hopes that their prayers will be heard.
Gallowrock This is a place where pirates were tried and hanged by the hundreds, until the people noticed that the hanged bodies were disappearing at night. The legendary hero Saint Vargis stood guard one night, and discovered that a great black dragon was rising from the water and eating the hanged men. Saint Vargas slew the dragon and put an end to the hangings. Now this place is a popular attraction for pilgrims. This place is on your itinerary.
Otiv this island nation is noted for its famous school of wizardry, and as a recruitment center for freebooters. Many young magic-users turn to piracy as a way to pay their student loans. This place is also on your itinerary.
Ultima Thule Here be dragons. This place is not on your itinerary.
The City of Cannibals This place is DEFINATELY NOT on your itinerary.
