  1. Izzetta Rex

    Fate - First Reply Why Is The Rum Always Gone?

    The Syzygy, Day 2 Akiva Sea The night was dark and the spirits darker, but Izzetta was buoyant. One would have thought the upheaval of the seas and magic would have sobered her, but Izzy was rarely sober. She sat on a barrel, braiding a rope, a foggy green glass bottle by her foot. She hummed...

    Fable - Ask Part of the Crew, Part of the Ship

    The Bastard Tap was a grungy and dimly lit establishment, with the air thick with smoke and the smell of sweat and alcohol. The walls were adorned with various weapons and trinkets, and the bar itself was made of rough-hewn wood. The patrons were a motley crew of pirates, smugglers, and other...

    Private Tales Hoist the Colors

    "You owe me, Evander." The words were strong, no patience, not a single width of wiggle room. Any man who heard those words would have found them impossible to argue with. They were spoken with such conviction, such power, that it might have come from the heavens. It was said in such a way...

    Fable - Ask It's The Ground That Kills You

    The Icarus "FUCK FUCK FUCK" Why did everything always get so fucking broken on this goddamn fucking ship all the time. Sabine let out another dozen curses, and then flicked the wrench from her satchel. Instead of trying to gently touch up the arcane engine, she smashed her tool against it's...

    Fable - Ask Pieces of a Lost Prophecy

    Retribution Part II Pieces of a Lost Prophecy The dark fortress proved nothing more than a hub of darkness and dread. There were few answers there, but many questions. The creatures they faced there would at least no longer plague these lands. They lay buried now under the ruined heap...

    Private Tales Hoist the Colors

    A young, red headed lad of teenage years stood in the crows nest of a fine merchant vessel sailing from Alliria to Falwood. As the sea lapped against the hull, the waves splashed him with salt water, leaving the boy completely drenched from head to toe. He only laughed in response. Urchin cared...
  7. Gihada Kierkegarde

    Private Tales Combustible Waters

    The sea sprayed beyond plank and coiled rope, to brush cold and damp against Tisikleos Miles’ cheek. Hands tight behind her back, the pirate stood as tall as her petite frame allowed, and refused, utterly refused indeed, to be swayed by the ocean’s salted tears. Let the spray weep on her all it...

    Private Tales The Wrong Kind of Ship

    Teth The trouble with being an outlander was the fact that often times you were moved by the swaying winds of others. It was not really by choice most of the time, but since he had come to the Southlands Ivar had...well just gone wherever it was people had needed him the most, or rather where...

    Private Tales I of the Storm

    Any jaunt beyond the Horseman was a gamble with your life on the line. Then again, being a pirate was a gamble. But there were different ways to play the game. The many minor merchants in the south? They could hardly afford escorts enough to fend off the corsairs swarming the warm waters of...

  11. Lucius

    Fable - Ask The Gulf and It's Treasure

    The Gulf of Liad - The Blackheart Lucius stood at the stern of his ship, a smile on his face as the wind rushed through his hair. His eyes were closed, but that didn't matter much on the open sea. This was the first time they had sailed The Blackheart under it's new name. Their flag rose high...

    Open Chronicles The Work of a Nation

    "Class dismissed," Istra said. "Enjoy your lunch." Her students stood up from their desks in the small classroom in the College. A small classroom for a small class: only eight of them, down from eleven. Alteration was one of the less popular subjects at the College, for it was far less direct...
  13. Lucius

    Private Tales No Jackets

    "We're gonna have to think of a named for this damned thing." Lucius said as he gave a quiet wince, the sowing needle Peyton was holding going just a little bit too deep for his liking. They had taken the Galleon almost a day ago now, and although Lucius' wounds had been mostly tended to there...

    Open Chronicles The Ash on the Breeze

    They sent forth men to battle, But the men are put to rest in the seas; And home, to claim their welcome, Come ashes on the breeze. _____________________________________________ It had been 2 weeks since they began to sail down the Baal-Asha river, and towards Cerak. Even he was amazed at...
  15. Andromeda

    Completed The Mermaid's Song

    Andromeda Barbarossa stood on the slightly raised platform the Shipwrecks Wraith used for all of their performers. The tavern was packed; news of the singers arrival had spread like wildfire amongst the pirate ships, who had known her father and knew of her talents, and news had spread from them...

    Fable - Ask Always Ask for More

    The Black Bay - Near Cera 'At'Thul "Forty thousand?" The contempt in Elise's voice was about as clear as the light of day shining through the nearby window. Her lips were thinned in a scowl, and the bruises on her face were evident. "What am I?" Her disgust was clear. "Some kind of peasant...

    Open Chronicles Blood In the Sea

    Vel Luin Elise sat cross legged in a small wooden folding chair that might as well have been a throne. She was located on a balcony overlooking the central square of Vel Anir, her eyes fixated on a large wooden platform that had been built in the very center. Four men stood there, each of them...

    Fate - First Reply The Great Escape.

    The Wild Markets of Cerak were exactly as one would expect of them. Dirty, putrid and full of filth, apt terms to describe both the setting and its inhabitants. Across the uneven square that held this unholy practice, and in no particular order, were numerous ramshackle tents signalling the...

    Open Chronicles Within the Marsh

    Bayou Garramarisma - North End Lira vomited over the side of the ship. Her fingers clutching tightly at the railings as she watched her own bile splash into the brackish waters of the marsh. "Kressim, how the hell is a Ranger so bad on water." A groan escaped her for a moment, hand coming up...

    Completed Reckoning

    "Bayou Garramarisma," said the smuggler. A scoff and a laugh. As if he didn't believe her. "Now why, given all the hellholes Arethil has to offer, would a lady like you want to go there?" "There hides a monster," Lazule said. Her brow narrowed. The look in her eye intense. "As it is said in the...
