Fire Island is a place with one of the worst reputations on the Western coast of Allanisa, and that’s saying something. Part of this reputation is from its days as a penal colony, when those criminals Port Blacksand deemed too heinous for even its mean streets were sent to live out the rest of their days in heavy labour, toiling in the quarries of the isle. Although to be fair, what Blacksand defines as a criminal is usually just someone who hasn’t paid the correct amount of protection money and backsheesh to the guards.
It’s already ghastly reputation has plummeted still further in recent years, after the island has been captured by marauding Lizardmen from the southern coasts, attracted by the island’s somewhat tropical climate. The island is now ruled over by an allegedly invulnerable Lizard King, and the colony of prisoners have an even worse lot, forced to serve their demon-worshipping masters.
