Exalted: The Role of the Dice
Coral is the second-largest state in the West, composed of 23 islands (all but five are small coral atolls) with a total population of nearly a million; the population of the nearby islands under Coral’s protection total another few hundred thousand. Coral has little arable land, and
the archipelago has always been dependent on the seas and its neighbors. Swept by cold rain and chill winds for much of the year, the inhabitants of Coral go forth in their ships built from the islands’ iron palm trees to take their due tribute from the ocean around them, and expand their zone of power. They value excellence and power, but see no reason to give pity or mercy.
Almost a decade ago a conglomeration of Coral’s Southern holdings dealt their navy a crippling blow in a sneak attack and successfully formed a rebellion government. The Plutocrats of Coral are eager to regain control of these so called Free Isles.
