Tanah Boemboe is a coastal province in the southeast of the Island. The province is bordered to the north by Dajak and Koetai, to the southwest by Mercato and to the east by the sea. The eastern border is dominated by a large mountain range called the Meratoes Range.

The land is mostly thick and dense jungle and includes the area known as The Devils Claw. The bulk of the population resides on the islands off the coast and the town of Setagen is the busiest port on the Isle. It's large deep-water port and massive breakwaters enable the town to handle the largest ocean going trading vessels and house a large home fleet.

The capital Pasir is the second largest city and is home to the Paetas Gardens a large cultivated area that stocks plants from all over the world. Over 200 gardeners are employed to keep these maintained.

House Voturia


This family is huge. Marsus Paetas had six sons, all of whom have produced families. Unlike most Houses where the lesser family members become unclaimed by the main family and must make their own way in the world House Paetas has claimed all younger members and assigns each to a trading vessel to make their own fortunes. If they make enough from trading to buy out the ship from the family they may establish their own families, if not they remain bound to the House. Many of the Captains will not try to free themselves instead amassing a fortune for their children rather than taking the risk of free venture.

The Family
