Tides of Pirates
Sigilis is the home-island of the illumians, due south of Tyrgard. A relatively small island, it is almost completely settled, with very little wilderness compared to larger core islands like Tyrgard and the Emerald Vale. By the same token, the illumians avoid the overpopulation problems of other small islands, like Khaz Moruum, by a strictly enforced tradition of family planning. As such the only large city on the island is the illumian capital, Tol Voxa, while the rest of the island is dotted with small towns, farming communes, and country villas.
Sigilis is also home to a number of higher education facilities, more so than any other island in the Central Seafold. The University of Tol Voxa is a scholarly institute of learning, popular among sages and bored nobles alike from all across the Core Isles. The Logos Academy is the training center for future Truenamers, where they study and perfect their cultural art. Further north, the secretive and mysterious Vocabulan Monastery is the home of the deadly Vocabulan monks.
