Okknos Prime: Bonifant
Chestersquire Academy is a prestigious preparatory school in Bonifant. It is almost exclusively attended by the sons of the city’s most affluent citizens.
Although the headmasters would believe their Academy is first and foremost a center for education, it truly is more of a fraternity. The political atmosphere of these wheedling students rivals that of their fathers. Indeed, many of the great alliances and enmities of the city’s foremost leaders trace back to the teen years spent at Chestersquire.
The young scions of Chestersquire participate in all manner of gentlemanly sport. The best-known of these events is the annual sailing championship, which has been held every year for more than a century, regardless of peace or war. The starting point is the southerly town of Mardeaux, and the race’s finish is at the port docks of Bonifant itself. Great crowds of both locals and tourists gather to watch this spectacle. A festival of sorts has sprung up around this event – parades roam the streets as exquisitely decorated ships patrol the harbor.
