Two if by Sea
The rugged countryside of Corsica is technically ruled over by the government of Pisa. This right was given to the council of Pisa by the Pope, to whom the people of Corsica gave their alliegiance. The Count Andrea d’Este of Corsica has the direct rule of the wealthy island.
The major city is Bastia, located along the north-eastern coast, near the peninsula. Though the majority of the people on the island are good, god-fearing citizens, there is no doubt that the monastery of Bonifacio on the southern coast is the primary center of Church learning in the area.
The lighthouse at the north-west corner of Corsica, is the location of the covenant, Somnium Oceani. There is a thriving fishing village in the covenant’s care, and down the coastline is a small feudal city of Calvi, where a thriving trade has been burgeoning. Some attribute the success of Calvi to the nearby lighthouse, while others say it is the rule of the benevolent Baron Umesti d’Onore.
Corsica has begun thriving with trade under the mercantile rule of Pisa. In addition to the usefulness of its location for voyages throughout the Mediterranean Sea, it has begin a strong export of citrus fruits, olives, and grapes.
South of Corsica is the island of Sardinia, ruled by count Pietro of Arborea.
