The World as We know it

Regular Forum Jamaica
The jewel of the British Empire since 1655 and the main sugar-exporting, slave-dependent colony, everything of importance happens here. Its main town, Kingston, was founded in 1692. Port Royal, destroyed by an earthquake, is not quite a safe harbour anymore for privateers and for pirates plying the Spanish trade shipping lanes.

The French part’s capital, Port de Paix, founded in 1665 by filibusters, just across Tortuga, is a flourishing town, surrounded by slave-dependent plantations.
