Shipyard Isle is the main ship building port for the Navies of
Mauritanja. Heavily fortified and with imposing cliffs it also
serves to defend the Solent, the channel between North Isle and
There are two major Shipyards on the Island, which serve the
2nd and 4th Unicorn Fleets. Most of the rest of the island is
given over to serving the needs of these two fleets and the sailors
when they come into town. Defences on the Islands are strong and
the native islanders are a hardy breed as much of the Easterly
winds that hit Maurtianja strike the island directly.
There are large barracks for Marines on the island and the main
administration centre for the Navy is held here. The walled enclosure
which holds the Naval buildings lies on the outside of the main
town on the Island, which is generally just referred to as Shipyard
town as it is almost entirely filled given over to the Shipyards.
