The Crowning Isles
Eastport is an Imperial town on the island of Diadem in The Crowning Isles. Though smaller than Coronet, it occupies an important strategic position on the Windward side of the island. Eastport is home to about 4,000 people (for size, think of Forks, WA – about 2 sq. km).
Because of Eastport’s smaller size and its distance from the ducal seat in Coronet, it is a favored port of smugglers and pirates operating in the Isles. However, with the new Magelev connection to Coronet, the Duke has begun to exert more and more control over the town, enforcing taxes, checking goods and hanging privateers. Citizens of the town have mixed feelings about this – Eastport is not the sort of place you end up if you’re a fan of rules, regulations and Imperial control. However, it can’t be denied that the increased military presence has made things safer from Halfling raids.
The (unelected, but generally well-liked) mayor of Eastport is Ado Cooke.
