Nightshade Island was originally located on the Malachite Ocean. An inscription on a log to the south west reads, "This island were fashioned by Kingofcards."
Nightshade Island is named after the deadly nightshade, or belladonna, one of the most toxic plants in the western hemisphere. The root of the plant is the most poisonous part, but even eating a leaf can be fatal to adult humans, and can also cause pus-filled blisters just from handling them.
