Roseney is an island nation located in Kiro-Borealis on the Sea of Nordska.

History

First Inhabitants

The first inhabitants of Roseney were known as the Atemeraw people. Believed to have initially colonized Roseney around 1200 BCE, the Atemeraw were known to be hunters and gatherers who primarily relied on fish and game along the insulated bays of the islands. Worshiping a pantheon of gods based around aspects of nature, they were known to be diverse and often flexible within their belief system. Tribes located on Falney believed in the power of the seas, and often traveled north to hunt whales and seals, while interior tribes and those located on Roseney largely depended on the elk and other creatures in the woods. Wars took place as well, with evidence found near Aurora of a battle having taken place between two unknown clans. It was around 700 CE that tribal history was established and shared. A'anin, the chieftain of a tribe near Cutchogue, unified the clans and fought against an unknown invader believed to be one of the many other tribes from across Kiro-Borealis.

The victory by A'anin saw the island transform into a nation. As the first person to rule over the entire island, he set up a court, established a standard currency, and even developed a permanent settlement and a map of the island. These developments even went to the point of creating an early parliament, with each clan electing a representative to go to the capital once a year. This new development however ended by 1130 CE, when the island fell into a permanent state of civil war. A'anin's line of descendants ended early in this conflict, and the state of affairs that once existed now did not. This period is called the Hundred Clans Period or the "Shattering" by the indigenous peoples of the Atemeraw, which continued on until the encounter with the first explorers from Levantia. Few figures rose to the prominence of A'anin again, and this caused the weakness of the islands. On April 12, 1623, the Atemeraw Islands changed forever.

Colonization

Captain John McCullough was chartered by the government of Urcea to travel to West Crona to find new land as part of a mission to set up a new colony for English refugees from the past century of conflict in Levantia. Long seeking a way out of the country, he hoped to find a new land for English speakers and other minorities to settle. Hugging the coast of the far northern regions, he and his crew after a long trip on the Blue Rose lost their sail and rigging. They were forced to row for days, and when finally giving up hope, they saw the Northern Lights in the sky, which led them to safety on the shore of the easternmost island of Roseney. In honor of this saving grace, they named their first settlement Aurora after the phenomena. The Atemeraw made first contact with these new settlers that evening, making April 12, 1623 one of the first serious moments of contact between white and indigenous peoples.

Self-Rule and Growth

The 19th century for Roseney was a period of great expansion and growth, and following the lifting of harsh immigration laws in 1803 by Helvianir, the island chain as well as the colony thrived. Although Governor Goodwin was loyal to the government and to his ancestral home, he was born on Roseney and his family line can be traced all the way back to the Blue Rose in 1623. A similar attitude was taken on by much of the island, who respected the rule of Helvianir but believed that they were ready to control their own affairs. To celebrate Goodwin's appointment, author and poet Owen Penrose wrote his epic work ''A Free and Independent Land'', the story of an island free from imperial rule. It was extremely popular upon its publication in periodicals across the island, and represented a new movement calling for full independence from Helvianir.
