-Colyne toiled for many years, working as a seneschal, a chronicler, an ale taster, a bailiff and in many other duties and roles. Colyne was one of those who helped amalgamate the wide-flung outposts and forts within the wilderness along the Cliffs into a bustling manor. He helped build the Rouge Ports, and took on the post of Portmaster, even commissioning the construction of Ardchreag’s first naval vessel (the Red Arrow). While patrolling the waters surrounding his home, Colyne had many battles with the nefarious pirates known as Cap’n Bloodfox and Cap’n Widow (who commanded the Black Trillium and the Clever Wife).+Colyne toiled for many years, working as a seneschal, a chronicler, an ale taster, a bailiff and in many other duties and roles.
