Modern history

  • Common Law towns have no organization; local militias only. Privately-raised self defense forces are sufficient to keep pirate raids at bay, but not enough to guarantee safety for the entire region.
  • By this point, Flamaguay officially ceases attempts to settle and control the area.
  • Occasional conflicts occur between Common Law enclaves.
  • Establishment of NPC in 1803 in Haversham, with objective to begin large-scale resource extraction in NP (not just timber), Thomas Jackson (Praetonian naval captain with experience in the region) appointed as administrator/commander.
  • NPC founds Jacksonville as "St. George's Town" in 1804.
  • NPC expands operations to most of the islands of NP - grows business from timber-cutting to sugarcane farming, minerals, coal mining, coconut/copra harvesting, etc. (1804-1820)
  • NPC pacifies interior due to good relations with most powerful tribe, assimilates remaining Flams, reorganizes as military Association after funding organized Navy of privateers (Jacksonville Squadron) in 1809. Pirate bases at Rendova, Vella La Cava, and Lansdowne are destroyed in campaign 1810-1820.
  • 1817: resource extraction initiatives spun off into specialist companies which become subscribers to NP Company military protection.
