War in the Adriatic

The Mystery at Kotor

The year is 1538. It is a world of mystery and those claiming occult powers. Right-thinking people don’t believe such fairy tales.

The Serenìsima Repùblica Vèneta (Most Serene Venetian Republic) has been a major political power in the Adriatic Sea for over two centuries, and has held colonies in Dalmatia (modern-day Montenegro) for over a hundred years. The elected leader of the Republic, Doge Andrea Gritti, fell gravely ill last year. Tensions have risen in the Republic as various factions vie to place their favorites in the Doge’s seat.

Recently, the Ottoman Empire invaded Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul). The Empire has increased its naval presence in the Adriatic and the mighty Ottoman armies currently hold much of the hinterland of Dalmatia, reaching almost to the shores of deep Kotor Bay.

The adventure begins here.
