A Change in the Tides

 

There has been a ripple in the waves signifying a change within Eyr’s waters.  Xae’raan Thiaroe , an eel mer whose helmeted countenance has become a familiar sight within the waters has risen to the rank of Talisae within Kuvari’s Deep.  Wanton Aime and Blanche Greyling of Stormstead reached out to meet with the Talisae to negotiate passage terms for the the village’s ship, ‘Swallowed Pride.”

The ‘Swallowed Pride’

A verbal agreement has been reached between factions and safety guaranteed for the “Swallowed Pride” that should prove beneficial to both factions. The Deepers shall be entitled to first selection of up to 10% of goods arriving in Stormstead and trade goods routed for Shalan’ti.  Passenger fare will be adjusted to include 10% passage fee for those arriving or departing via the ship.

Pleasing news came as an invitation was extended

by the Talisae herself.

An honor ceremony is to be held on Thursday (Starting Thursday, March 30 @ 5PM SLT) to honor Alithia.  

The siren Alithia is a well known and loved figure to many here in Eyr.   This event will be open to any and all who wish to attend.  Talisae Xae’raan reported that breathing potions would be made available and those feeling comfortable enough might even try their hand at the jousting event following the ceremony.

Stormstead citizens are wary.  Experience has taught us this.  We have seen much treachery and unbalance.  But these first attempts at negotiation and meeting have left the council feeling cautiously optimistic about future relations.  Time will tell.

Pirates Rousted! Ship Taken! Hostage Recovered!

Pirate Death on Beach

Beach soaked in Blood and Littered with Bodies

Pirate blood stains the beach and their bones litter the ocean floor after citizens of Eyr rallied to roust the scoundrels and attempt to take back those who were taken.  Revenge has been enacted, the captive reclaimed and stolen goods recouped. It is indeed a day to celebrate as the ship, although severely damaged, appears to have a full cargo within its hold.

Ornith

Ornith Returned!

Members of the Moei Asing and Stormstead both celebrate Ornith’s return.  The shaken elven woman lies dehydrated and weakened from her ordeal in the Medica.  She is expected to recover fully though she may battle the memories of the horror that took place for years to come.

The whole incident was set off when a small group of obviously nervous and undoubtedly frightened pirates stepped across the threshold of the Salty Swallow just as people were beginning to celebrate the success of the ‘Seasonal Pot.’  Proving that there is no honor among thieves, their spokesperson, Naseer, plead for leniency and offered up the date and location for when the pirates would begin ferrying their ill-gotten gains to the ship, “Scorpion’s Sting.”  In exchange he and his entourage were allowed to leave with their heads still attached.

The battle began on Sunday at midday.  Sails were spotted in the distance as pirates scuttled about the beach in preparation to depart with their last boatload of stolen goods.  A wave of citizens swept the beach led by the Shadow Prince himself and quickly followed by Captain Valkyrie and Wanton Aime.  Allynna of the Moei Asing added her weaponry to the fray and a young Roc appeared and began an aerial attack, raining rocks and fish down onto the hapless pirates.  The battle also spilled over into the waters where a savage group of Merfolk awaited, led by Derek Marshall and later joined by Alithia.  At the thick of the battle, Clover swooped up the beach armed with her customary button and needle to help take out one of the final cargo-loading pirates.

The battle continued on the ship with even more citizens pouring in.  Daniel and Arakaki fought bravely, taking several injuries themselves, but they are a formidable duo.  The waters began frothing with the fury of the sirens attack below.  Soon afterwards, the pirate bodies began once again to pile up.

As the screams were dying down, the real horror emerged.  Captain Scorrow – clad in black and wielding her magics and venomous sting, she lashed out, spinning and dodging and spewing venom. Her rage made her careless and she underestimated the powers of the crowd.  Swiftly incapacitated, her last gasp offensive was to summon up a wave of negative energy.  It struck like a lighting bolt destroying not only herself but cracking the very hull of the ship, leaving it debilitated and listing badly above the Mer reef.

Pirates and other predators have historically made their way up the Kuvari to wreak havoc upon our citizens.  The fact that they appeared again is nothing new.  However the victory that was won by Eyr is truly unprecedented.  Never in recent memory has such a punishment been dealt to those who would trespass against us.  My hope that this serves as a deterrent against future attacks.   The complete annihilation of the cutthroats that wronged us is a demonstration to all who pass through our jungle that we are a force to be reckoned with.  Let this serve as warning.

Brawlers Test their Mettle at the Ebon Reach Pit Fights

Valorvir and Botis, Pit Lord of Ebon Reach, hosted the first Back Ally Brawl on Saturday, December 5th where fighters came to test their mettle, and perhaps settle personal vendettas, against one another. Shady merchants were seen peddling wares in dark corners and even Wanton Aime of the Salty Swallow served up drinks to spectators who came to quench their thirst for more than blood.

The first fight was a contest of skin on skin between Krastor and Cedany Blackstone and seemed to be of significance beyond just the battering of fists in the pit. The brawlers punctuated their punches with words as well as knuckles, and Cedany left the pit victorious.

The second fight between J’veska and Pandora seemed evenly matched, despite the siren’s initial slip in the pits, causing self injury. That is until Pandora distracted herself to dine on the blood she’d drawn from J’veska and took a kick to the head that easily ended the fight. J’veska chalked this fight up for a win.

This reporter regrets missing the details of the third and final fight, however second hand reports indicate that two fighters — namely one StarGirl and one Daniel Graves — faced off in the pits. Daniel Graves was victorious with the only critical hit of the night, possibly making for the most brutal of the three wins.

The event was certainly a success, with the crowd watching in anticipation for blows and bloodshed from the sidelines. One can certainly hope there will be future brawls in the Pits.
