People say that Dowesen was put up in the year 1576. Douwesen has been known to have fought many battles. The Dutch governor is said to have a good personality, although too good he cannot take much responsibilities like repairing the fort.
The Douwesen colony has a Loanshark's Office owned by Klaas Ramalas, a store, a shipyard, a Governor's Residence, and a church. Its city is not quite large. A door on one of the city's buildings leads underground to a vast network of tunnels infested with cursed pirate skeletons.
Douwesen's jungle appears to be quite large and one can get lost in it. Somewhere in the jungle there is a pirate fort. The Douwesen Pirate Fort has nothing but several houses and a tavern.
