Nicobar Islands

Re my recent postings on dispositions on EvE :

Perhaps this map will help show you where the Nicobar islands are. They were bought from the Danish East Indies Company for an undisclosed sum of money. Rumour has it that they wanted rid quickly for reasons known only to them! Relations are friendly with the Danish possessions in the area where Tradgardland vessels are welcome to refuel,resupply and rest. It goes without saying that Tradgardland reciprocates in a like wise manner.

Tradgardland built a fort , upon the largest island,which manned to this day as well as accommodation for a number of important personnel. Other settlements are scattered on the other islands -each raising militia for self-defence. Communication with the Duchy takes a long time by boat and dispatches are irregular to say the least. The Governor, Antonious Block, is believed to be in residence in Fort Karl Frederick at present.


  1. Thank you. Now I know where they are.

  2. Wondering about the 'local militia': probably European settlers, but maybe a few native 'Sepoys'? And / or 'free Blacks' and / or half-breeds , Indian 'Topas'-fashion?

    Intringuing - and potentially colorful.
