The Kantol Archipelago is a small chain of 8 islands. The smallest is about 20 miles in diameter while the largest is nearly 100. The islands are home to pirates and fisherman. Most of them Half-orcs, orcs or hogoblins who took to the sea to avoid being dominated by humans, elves and others.
The Pirates of Kantol are a fierce group and constantly battle with Saltwater’s Weep over domination of the shipping lanes. While Saltwater’s Weep has better ships and crews the Pirates have greater numbers and absolute ferocity.
They are just far enough away and their islands are surrounded by a number of viscous reefs and currents making it very hard to approach en mass. This dangerous sea terrain and treaties with the Sauhagain allow them to remain free of the Warlord’s control.
