Pipe Home


The Pipe Home region is southeast of Izagunbar and east of Weretopia. The Coral Shield Reef is along its eastern coasts. This long reef, more than anything else, is the region's greatest defense. It has broke up numerous invasions by sea and continues to deter imperialists from subduing the land's independent city-states.

Pipe Home is a region predominately inhabited by halflings, Forstneblin, and Kriavian Elves. The denizens of Pipe Home have a long and peaceful history with no aggressive wars or conflicts to speak of.

The halflings of Pipe Home are industrious, strong in business acumen, peaceful, fun loving, and enjoy a good pipe and extended periods of relaxation. The Forstneblin are brotherly to the halflings. They trade in wood products and craft exquisite wood products. The kriavian elves of this region favor the arts and sciences. They have produced a number of masters in astronomy, medicine, chemistry, and the arts. Most of their currency is generated by services as doctors, alchemists, musicians, and scientists.

In the Year 1332, the wreckage of a ship was washed ashore near the City of Light Houses. It held a crew of putrefying humanoid corpses. The ship manifest and journal was not among the debris. This is unfortunate, as perhaps it would have warned of the calamity that was to ravage the denizens of Pipe Home.

The salvaging fisherman carried the cargo of the derelict craft to the City of Light Houses. They then returned to their homesteads in the Hill Burrows. What they did not know, is that they had contracted a deadly plague that soon ripped threw the population like a wild fire. The losses will probably never be known, but the population of Pipe Home's city-states was reduced by a third. Because of this plague, and for the next 100 years, the denizens of Pipe Home destroyed any craft that approached the land. This destruction was typically by fire. Raiders were likewise destroyed and burned for fear of contamination.

The halflings of Pipe Home were the first people to cultivate tobacco. In 1703, export of this product began with the signing of trade agreements with Ivory Asylum. The halflings of the region have also proven to be masters of economics and shrewd businessmen. They established the first national trade center, the Mercantile Exchange. This market is based on speculation for future profitability and success of a company. The success of this market place led to the expansion of the market to include Member States.
