The long-standing northern colony of the Kingdom of Merthiorn has been granted its independence not half a century ago, but little came out of it other than an authoritarian, bureaucratic regime that got too involved in the private life of its citizens.   After the disaster of The High Rust, this is now a state in social turmoil, fighting to survive the consequences of its cultural shock.  

Colonial Origins

The Red Crest Colonies occupied the main landmass of the northernmost island of the Haan Archipelago and its surrounding islands, collectively known as Red Crest Islands.   For several centuries, the islands were controlled by the Kingdom of Merthiorn, who would appoint a Viceroy, generally choosing a prince or princess from the Royal Family other than the heir to the throne.
The kingdom would command the islands from across the Shifting Channel requiring all exports to go through Merthiorn as a way to suck resources from the islands.   In 2976 E.Alz it was the time for young prince Virgilim to become the viceroy of the islands.  

A Puppet State

Virgilim acted as Red Crest's viceroy from 2976 to 2985 E.Alz. By this point the Kingdom of Merthiorn was having some trouble controlling their colony, but more importantly Virgilim's mother Queen Tesel of Merthiorn had noticed the obedience and trust of his son who would follow every request and plan to benefit the mainland.

The Haan Archipelago

Danae by Naelin
The cartographer Danae from the City of Birdland in Thaur was commissioned to draw a map of the Haan Archipelago for the second edition of The Book of the Habits and Beasts, published in the 3rd of Birthing, 3 E.Ru.   Danae took advantage of the enclyclopaedia's team of researchers to gather precise information and went himself into research expeditions to survey remote areas. His work resulted in what is considered the most accurate and widespread map of the Archipelago to this day, which details even most of the coasts of the Savage Isles.
