Shaintar: Legends Awaken Rangers of Sky
A large group of Kal-a-Nar Empire friendly pirates, complete with Letters of Marque vs Galean and allied navies, originally built the village of Starcross. Over time it grew into the city it is today.
The community has changed hands many times over the last few hundred years, for the last 50 years it has been an independent kingdom, with a strong sense of neutrality regarding pirates and other vagabonds. Though, this too is changing thanks to the actions of the Pirate King Kevdak and his minions – they have been raiding more communities around the island and have even dared to attack ships in the lake as well as assault buildings and warehouses within the city itself.
