Titoz Aelio zo Carausiaqq, the paragon of honor and integrity, took command of a small fleet of pirates and his own Ghiscari deserters (mostly legionaries) after the death of the Pirate Captain Svarr Scipio. He decided to “Fuck Attacking Lannisport” and instead sailed to the Stepstones, using his legionaries’ higher discipline, armour, and skill to take the islands (with some difficulty.) He has now established a new nation…though he’s not exactly steering it. That’s the job of the Synderion (Pontoshi Senate). Indeed, the Senate plans to take Pontos on a new path, one previously untrodden. They have given their citizens a plethora of rights, the foremost among them the right to hold public office, the right to make binding legal contracts and own property, and the right to attend Pontoshi assembly (there’s a lot more, just check the actual page.) These rights were proposed by Senator Mithras, a gaunt faced man from Volantis.
