History

For a long time, the island know today as Alkoisland was merely the latter part; namely an island. And for most for the most part of Freedonia's known history, Alkoisland has been just that, an Island. It was after the abandonment of Risville, today known as "Ruins of Risville", that Alkoisland came to be. getplayerhead.sh?Netrom5&16.png Netrom5, the leader of Risville, took his people south in hopes of greener pastures. After passing through Kyrza and the early stages of Fakestaff_HQ, the people took to the sea.

It was not long before the once homeless people of Risville found their new home; Alkoisland. The settlement soon began to cultivate and grow wheat to feed itself. And as because of trade traffic running past the sprouting island, good fortune and wealth was introduced to the inhabitants. This also gave reason to build a lighthouse located south on the main islands tail. New industry was introduced as untouched mines were found beneath the island. Rich in iron, gold and diamonds. All in all, the people of Alkoisland enjoyed life as it was.

Today, Alkoisland serves as a haven for players longing for a silent and far away retreat. Given the yet decreasing trade traffic to nearby settlements, The island and its economy faltered. It is now a place to visit and view rather than a station for trading adventures.

In the later parts of Alkoisland's history, other explorers of Freedonia were attracted. Most notably getplayerhead.sh?thesprazzler&16.png thesprazzler, which in an agreement with the founder was permitted to build his very own house. Today Alkoisland looks a little bit different.

Onomastics

When Alkoisland first where inhabited, the residents never gave the naming of their island much thought. According to trading ledgers the island often received ambiguous names such as "Trading Island" or it was referred to the island between Treetown and mainland Freedonia. It wasn't before Alkoisland was added as a station in Mushiana route the founder and only inhabitant getplayerhead.sh?Netrom5&16.png Netrom5 decided the place needed a name. Net sought help among the community and getplayerhead.sh?Bowbee&16.png Bowbee came with the suggestion of naming the island Alkoisland
