The only person with any real power on Maskurm was Lionel, who was more interested in tax-free trade than anything else. But in 1170, Lionel seized the opportunity to cement his hold on the island, naming it the “Island of Piecao” in a presentation to a group of Kinoblin staring down from a Junk. This was the first step in a series of bold moves that would eventually earn him a leading position in The Realm.
At the brink of 1170, Lionel approached the King and purchased Maskurm, officially renaming it the Island of Piecao.
