Piren's Bluff

Piren’s Bluff is the southern-most town in the Shackles. Sitting on the sunny southern coast of Windward Isle it is the largest population centre on the island. Piren’s Bluff is dominated by the fortress, Tidewater Rock which stands on the clifftop overlooking the town and docks below. A wooden wall and watch towers surrounds the town, a necessary structure to protect the town against the many attacks from jealous pirates who seek to ’crack the rock and take the town and fortress for themselves.
