Pie Holm is the mysterious desolate island to the far south east of The Isles of Orlend. The island is solely inhabited by Pies, who hoard their trinkets and treasure here in the many nests that adorn the rock faces. Pies are thief-birds. Not much bigger than a starling, but have a cocky attitude and a caw that mocks you as they fly away with your shiny trinkets. They won't hesitate to swoop down and peck an earing from your lobe, or even steal a coin from your pocket while you sit and have lunch. Their colony lives predominantly on this island that has been named after them, though small clusters of them live on the main island of Orlend.
Neighbouring IslesTo the north of Pie Holm is the larger islands of Steep Holm and Flat Holm, and to the west lies the tiny island of Raven Holm which is home to the aggresive rival species of corvids.
War of the CorvidsThe pies of Pie Holm are at war with the ravens of Raven Holm. Their colonies are so close to one another that nests are raided, eggs are smashed and treasures are stolen. The ravens are at a disadvantage with such a small island, but are arguably stronger, bigger and smarter than the pies. This ongoing feud between the birds makes the waters between the isles impassable unless small vessels are suitably covered and skirt through the passage quickly at night.
