Of Frogs and Roses
Eire is still a land in the clutches of the Fey. Along the coast humans lives and eke out a meager living, but the further you leave the sea behind, the less real the world becomes and it is said than all Eirishfolk are a bit fey.
The Albion Kings have tried to subdue the island for centuries, but each campaign only gains them land for a village or two.
Still, each village means a new peerage to grant and rich land to cultivate.
