Lore

The culture of Serpent Isles is deeply tied to Bilgewater, the island's nation. Bilgewater, over the years, has become an important stop for trade ships traveling near the Serpent Isles. While this increased the nation's wealth and influence on Valoran, the trade routes also brought piracy, and the island's inhabitants found themselves caught in a frenzy of pillaging. Things have relatively settled down since those days. Many inhabitants now strive to unite under Bilgewater in order to make themselves into a strong and independent society.

More recently, the Island has been under assault from the Shadow Isles, that attacks in the form of "Black Mist" and probably in undead armies. The threat has been successfully fought off by the combined efforts of a Leviathan, GangplankSquare Gangplank, Miss FortuneSquare Miss Fortune , NautilusSquare Nautilus  and its own residents, however, MordekaiserSquare Mordekaiser  and HecarimSquare Hecarim  have successfully raided the island at least 2 times, leaving no survivors on the attacked towns.
