History

Olive Island was originally located on the Cobalt Ocean. A chest on the western dock reads, "This island were fashioned by Weaver."

Olive was originally taken by Hydrophobia on 30 April 2005.

Aqua Marina, the shipyard bazaar was removed around August 17, 2005. The palace was originally named The Water Cooler, but was renamed in 2006.

L'eau and Behold, one of the two shipyards, was dusted in June 2008, and a new distillery bazaar, Aqua Vitae, was constructed.

Economy

Very little goods required to effectively run shoppes and stalls are available at the island those that are available are priced ridiculously high and very little is bought. The cost of opening a stall on Olive island is the cheapest in the entire ocean. The unfortunate part is that in order to economically produce products and make a profit you must import them from far off as surrounding islands uninhabitable or outposts. It is not recommended to buy items that require high amounts or labor or require expensive as ingredients on Olive island, as chances are it will not be available or you will over pay.
