08 – Sacrifice

By EM Malachi Those guarding the shore of the Isle of Deeds saw the pirate sloop before they noticed the rowboat it was pursuing. It was clear the small craft had a head start, but one man rowing could not match the wind for speed. The knight in command made the call to protect the fleeing boat, ordering the Hold’s cannons to track the pirate ship. When a few shots came close, the pirate ship veered to avoid the fortified island, but its crew fired a parting shot at the rowboat. Striking the side, the cannonball obliterated the boat, sending […]

07 – The Call to Valor

By EM Malachi The flawless stone was inlaid with a gold sword. Sir Simon watched as the builders adjusted the central marble feature of the new shrine. “The Shrine of Valor will be difficult to maintain and protect here. I wonder why you didn’t build it on the Isle of Deeds. The knights of Serpent’s Hold would have stood vigil over it at all times.”  The young king shook his head. “While I appreciate the chivalry of the Order of the Silver Serpent, I do not want the shrine to become a symbol of martial strength. Valor is not a […]

06 – Sea of Tears

Sea of Tears By EM Malachi In the large iron-girded aquarium, the nixie in chains sang to herself. The song started as a wordless child’s melody of warm seas, full of wonder and beauty. It became a dirge as the song spoke of her capture and years of captivity. The final verse rose into a defiant ballad of escape. Her voice channeled the magic around her, fighting the manacles holding her. The iron resisted, glowing red and burning against the bracelets of scars around her wrists. When she could bear the pain no more, she fell silent, the spell song […]

05 – Treasure Island

By EM Malachi Treasure Island The damp air on the ship had brought out the mildewed smell of Rankin’s spellbooks. The mage struggled to cram the last tome into his pack. He eventually gave up and removed some clothes to make room. As he dragged the heavy bag to the rowboat, Rankin looked at the others who were preparing to go ashore. Two porters were doing inventory of cured meats and hardtack for the expedition. A bulky gargoyle named Forskis was staring up at the sky. Hook was giving some last minute orders to the crew of the Crown Jewel. […]

04 – No Quarter

No Quarter By EM Malachi The mage had surrounded himself with the maps. Some were ancient parchment, their mistakes and ignorance covered with drawings of dragons and drakes. Others were current shipping routes, still bearing the wax seal of Vesper Customs. The rest were faded or moldy sketches done by pirate captains over the years. Rankin frowned. “What am I supposed to be seeing?” “A new kingdom,” replied Hook, as he sharpened a knife. Rankin traced a circle around Buccaneer’s Den on a sea chart with a finger. “I guess I can see that, if you claim another major island […]

Rising Tide

Concerns Rise As Famed Buccaneer’s Den Guild Gets New Leader, Maritime Trade Cargo At Risk! Startling news out of Buccaneer’s Den as whispers turn to shouts over the new leader of “The Guild”. “The Guild” has long been the island’s premier, yet loosely organized, outfit for pirates, marauders, thieves and other professions of ill-repute. That seems to have changed recently as a new leader called Hook has emerged with the stated goal of empowering “The Guild” to new heights of infamy. Merchant mariners are no doubt troubled by this news and fear their cargo could be at risk. Reports from […]
