from Quick Description:
A renaissance-styled swashbuckling culture, ruled by 14 self-proclaimed sea princes, one for each coastal city.
The nation consists of one large island and clusters of smaller ones that hug closely to its shores. One island is artificially separated from the main, shorn away during the Wars of Darkness in the dim past.
Chorynth is a society where sea princes rule the individual ports as each one sees fit, making for some interesting, often contradictory and energetic differences.
