The Pridelands

The city of Simensen Freeport (commonly known as Freeport) was founded on 27 September 2022 by s0uthw3st as the first settlement in the Lionsgate Archipelago, an exclave of the Pridelands. Eventually, as activity in the capital at Pride Rock waned, Freeport became the administrative capital of the Pridelands under the two Stewards of the Pride, s0uthw3st and wilwithonel, both of whom resided in the Archipelago. The Archipelago was expanded through the purchase of islands from the Leibniz Confederation, and several settlements were built during this time, including a tree farm and fort at Delta Farmstead, and wilwithonel's Hermitage.

Imperial Federation

After a period of inactivity following the Pridelands' exit from the Imperial Federation, the Archipelago fell back under Imperial ownership, laying mostly dormant for several months. The return of s0uthw3st prompted a revival of activity near Freeport, including the addition of several new residents on neighboring islands (now the settlements of Valinor and Claw Atoll). As such, the Archipelago was reincorporated as the State of Freeport.


Due to increasing dissatisfaction with the Imperial government and a desire to form an independent nation, the State of Freeport petitioned for independence on 16 July 2023, and was granted independence on 20 July 2023. The State of Freeport changed its name to the Jarldom of the Pride Isles, continuing the Viking aesthetics of the Pridelands. As an independent nation, it joined the Union of the South Sea alongside four other nations, some of whom seceded from the Imperial Federation for similar reasons.


The Pride Isles is composed of a series of islands in the Southern Sea centered around Simensen Freeport, as well as a farmstead located on a mushroom island in the Karydia Sea.
