Thesta: An Heir Denied
Burano is an island avoided by the majority of people. Folktales and stories speak of terrifying monsters and inhospitable jungles, cliffs, mountains and forests.
The northern half of the island is home to the Arezzo Monasteries. Monks, believing that venerating an ancient bloodline was not enough, that they must live, and commit to a life similar to their great ancestors to truly succeed. They often undertake trails that led them into the dangerous jungle.
The southern coves of the island are safe from the jungle and monsters within, but house many individual gangs of pirates and privateers. Each captain claiming a small cove to offload cargo, prisoners or slaves.
