      Also known as Isola d'Olivolo, Castello is home to the Venetian Arsenal where the mass production of galleys of every size helped create one of the strongest naval fleet. But what is that shadow on the horizon? A merchant fleet? Rumor has it that the revolution in France has turned its eyes on Venice.

      2 Topics 68 Posts

      Beware the phantoms that haunt the unmarked graves, the mass resting places of plague victims through the ages. This island has been vacant well through the 18th century and is just now starting to show life once more. It is a check point for ships to make sure they carry not the plague, but most of all it is an oubliette--a place to put things one wishes to forget. Be not surprised to find a bone or two unearthed by hunters, and dare not venture there after dark. But most of all...Death Be Not Proud.
