|“||People of the sea, the residents of Cape Myst only call the country home in between naval outings.||”|
|—Sir TwoTone Trollbane, Tips for Travelers|
Cape Myst boasts some of the fiercest coastal weather souther of Blüdfrost. Hurricanes regularly crash into its coasts during the season, and its rocky reef is nicknamed the 'Graveyard of the Sea' for its large amount of shipwrecks.
The town of Cape Myst, namesake for the country it sits in, serves as the capital of the country. Vacationing tourists and sea-faring vessels make up most of its income. The legendary Silverton Bar & Inn sits beside the docks, infamous for its bloody drunken brawls and seedy affairs.
Cape Myst co-hosts, along with Talara, the annual Aqual Race. The sailing championship runs from one of the cities to the other (alternating annually) and draws the country's largest visitors during the week long event (which also happens to coincide with Spring Break for University students across the lands).
Herningston manor is where the reigning King of the Cape lives, which is His Majesty the right Honorable Brill Saxton, who is currently in his seventh year of lordship (after the tragic untimely death of his father at sea).
The Discovery of new land
Recently, much flutter has taken place as a drifting deckhand was picked up by a local fishing vessel. His ship struck ground and he was thankful and lucky to be alive, but what really has spawned a huge celebrity-like status for him is the claim that they saw land right before they sunk. This land would be a previously-undiscovered place to the southwest if his story is true. Adventurers are hurriedly gathering supplies to begin search, as the first their will be able to lay claim to it under international maritime laws.
