Falgood Boles, captain of the brig Bitter Wind, founded the small port of Bogsbridge in the Motaku Isle in the Shackles after he had a vision of Besmara. He believed Besmara had tasked him to build a port in this marshy wetland, completely unsuitable for any reasonable development. The devout pirate developed the settlement using his personal wealth, despite the boggy location and the fact that no large ship could use this harbor. He paid carpenters and stonemasons and built a pier, a warehouse, and a two-story inn which he named Besmara's Favor. Boles lived there alone with his wife for 2 years. The marsh was gradually silting the harbor when Falgood Boles discovered a unique breed of snail in the surrounding marshes that produced a rare purple dye. The discovery made Falgood Boles a fortune and since then the town has grown. The town still continues to harvest the lucrative snails, transporting them via a sandy road to Lilywhite where the dye is shipped far and wide. Besmara's Favor thrives and is currently tended by Bole's cheerful granddaughter, Tendry Boles, who is also the mayor of the town.1
