The Duchy of Stormhaven

Storm haven is a Mome Duchy in the Kingdom of Bigany.
It is famous for great trading houses, privateers and legendary revelry.
Despite being the original seat of Mome power many lesser houses thrive here.
The Houses of Maersk, Hunt, Swift and Norfolk are the most romanticised and dangerous.

Noble Houses
Duke Carrington Mome II (Seat City of Stormhaven, County of Deepford, Duchy of Stormhaven) – (Father assassinated)
Count Worthington Evergreen X (Seat City of Bywater, County of Farmfield)
Count Eglington Onasis (Seat Town of Durban, Count of Lakewold)
Count Wayland Swift II (Seat Town of Karst, County of Swiftshire)
Count Montgomery Trask III (Seat Town of Sweetwater, County of Downton)

Trade
This duchy used to be the wealthiest and most powerful Mome such in the Kingdom due to the trade through the ports of Bywater and Stormhaven.
The shipyards of Bywater produce a large number of advanced ships benefiting from the concentration of expertise in the city and the proximity of the wood supply in the Beastwoods.
They also produce a wide variety of high quality carpentry and wood sculptures.

Church
The city of Stormhaven hosts the largest Uisce temple outside of the capital.
Many regard it as the true home of the Uisce faith.
This temple lies on the sea floor in Stormhaven Firth, the narrow inlet leading to the city.

Navy
The Bigany Navy’s largest base is in Stormhaven.
This is where the greatest number of Navy ships and privateers are stationed.
There are considerable Naval bases in Bywater, Karst and Durban is as well.

Borkin Island
Borking is known for fishermen, crustacean harvesters, beachcombers, pirates, and Sahuagin.
The island large but very shallow and suffers terribly in storms.
There is no decent deepwater harbour. There is one passable harbour on the northeast coats called Gambit harbour.
Gambit is named for the bets that locals take on whether the sand currents will beach any moored vessels.
Smaller pirate vessels dock there regularly for illegal trade, but they do not stay because Borkin is too close to Karst Navy and the Sahuagin.
The biggest resource is a local crustacean that resembles a cross between a crab and a lobster called a borkin. They are delicious.
They locals delight in calling them Borkin borkins and they are harvested for miles when the tide is out.
There is a tall lonely keep on the highest point of the low island called Wayland’s folly, which acts as a lighthouse.
When Sahuagin attack the islanders flee to either Gambit or Wayland’s folly
