Description:  Port Woodhouse is a settlement located on the small but strategically important island of Garma's Key. Garma's Key is a small low laying island located astride the Garma Strait that separates the Islands of Celestia and Cascadia. The sea directly around the key is shallow and hosts coral reefs, but the south eastern coast is deep enough to harbour larger ships.

It is on the south western coast where the settlement has been established. This strategic position guards the entrance to Safety Bay, a large deep water bay in which an entire fleet could easily shelter. The settlement itself sits on the most southern point of Garma's Key and the adjacent small tear-dropped shaped island just to the south has been earmarked for the sight of giant fortifications to guard the entry to Safety Bay. A naval base is also being established to protect Corlander commerce in the region.

The settlement's purpose as a naval and military outpost, together with its unsuitability for cash-crop agriculture, have resulted in it being dwarfed in size by neighbouring commercial settlements such as Jameston and Mesabi Landing. Despite this, Port Woodhouse looks to be growing into the administrative capital and the seat of Corlander Colonial government in the Paradise Islands.

The crabs that are abundant on the island are prized for the taste of their meat, and the island has quickly become known for the quantity of it's seafood. Properties licensed to exploit this have been observed to make a slightly larger profit than other similar properties.

Island #: 19 Claimed by Corrington
Nickname: Garma's Key
Geographical Features: This low-lying island resides in a strategic point between Celestia and Cascadia, in that it overlooks the strait between them. The sea directly around the key is shallow and hosts a coral reef, but the south eastern coast is deep enough to harbour larger ships. The Key benefits from the rain that falls on its nearby islands, but does not maintain much fresh water of its own.
Rumors: It is said by the natives that the island was built by crabs, and it is true that the coastline is practically crawling with them.

Updated with a new map to clarify a slight miscalculation in the island's location by the map makers. Also now with a new (and significantly redcoat-ish) name to reflect the new locations ability to be developed into a major naval port.
