Galley Revonas, Middle Sea

Day 21

7:12
Shidar confirmed my own calculations today. We have passed the world's median latitude and rounded the "Great Peninsula" described by Sal Mishlan. The water in this part of the oceans is calm, probably sheltered between the eastern and western continents. We are sailing N70W in across clear waters to reach the eastern coast. The wind is brisk by the seas are calm. Speed is exceptional. 16 knots. Crew is grumpy but in good discipline; will allow them a couple days leave when we reach the coast.

We are at least half way to our goal of the northern pole. Our supplies are good, and as long as we can forage along the coast we will reach our destination without issue. There has been no sign of foreigners or civilization since the beginning of our voyage.

17:43
Dahans Hurlik fell overboard but was recovered without issue. Doctor Dilarn sent him to bed for the rest of the day. Gods willing he won't get a fever from his little dip. Dilarn took the opportunity to vent his worry about lack of fresh supplies. I assured him that we would scour the coast when possible.

Day 22

No incidents today. Shifted bearing N68W. Speed 15 Knots.

Day 23

Made landfall today. Land is arid, hot, and dry. Foraging expeditions turned up nothing but a couple small animals and some strange berries. Lindan has volunteered to test the berries, no adverse signs yet. In light of the situation I have given order to keep sailing. Will follow the coast north as fast as may be and watch for more bountiful land. Crew is somewhat upset over lack of good forage; no signs of insubordination. Unless supplies run out I expect no trouble. Fishing is good and the desert will give way before our supplies do. Will press on.

Nishlan Docks

"Father! Father! There it is!" The halfling boy dashed forward down the cobbled streets, ignoring the thawing snow and slush, hopping up and down as he tried to get a better view of the harbor. "Hurry up! They're coming in!"

"I'm coming Shar. Don't get too far ahead." The boy's father replied, advancing at a long stride. He pulled the brass buttons from his warm fur jacket, no longer strictly necessary in the warm weather, and followed the scampering mass of black hair, mud and excitement towards the docks. As they neared the water the streets became even more crowded than usual. Excited halflings jostled to get near the pier while busy dockhands and laborers pushed their way through, annoyed at the commotion. The busy industry of Nishlan's docks would not stop for a mere celebrity. Vendors hawked their goods to passers-by while seagulls watched overhead, oblivious to the salt gusts of cold.

"I can't see!" Shar bemoaned in a voice of pure distress. He was doomed he was sure; his hero would walk by and all he would see were boots and fur jackets. The father was unsympathetic.

"Quite your whining." He said, not unkindly, and gave the boy a weak slap aside the head. Looking around, he spotted a solution. "There, Shar. See that stairwell? Go climb up there, I'll catch up." The boy ran ahead immediately, climbing the five stone steps that lead to a stout wooden door. From his perch he could see handily over the heads of the crowd.

Across the bay, the galleon Vasidir sped, its many decks of oars rising and falling in unison as it crossed the shining bay. The painted shield upon its side was crisp as the day it had left port, the inscription "Guild Union Navy" across the imaginary roundshield. With a flicker of color a halfling stood upon the front of the ship, small but distinct, and waved a flag first up, then left. The splash of oars grew to a roar, then cease as the ship coasted forward towards the docks. The flagman waved once again, and with a shout of "Ropes away" the moorings were cast to the waiting dockhands. Seamlessly as a great machine the ship came to port. Then Shar saw him.

The black-haired, black-eyed halfling stepped onto the gangplank easily, a wide smile on his face as he waved his fur cap at the cheering crowd. His golden-trimmed jacket shining in the morning light.

"Sal Mishlan! What have you found this time?!" Someone in the crowd yelled.

"Many things, many things." The explorer answered cheerily, his smooth voice effortlessly rising over the cheers of the crowd. "The Eastern Continent had many wonders. I saw forests untouched since the day the gods made them, and mountains that stretched into the clouds, and strange creatures with as many colors as a rainbow. But the dockhands have work to do, and I will have to satisfy your curiosity tomorrow my good Shidarans, so please let me through."

The crowd parted as the explorer disembarked, followed by the halflings of his crew. Many were met by their families as they set foot on dry land, and the crowd was enthusiastic to hear the tales of sailors as well as explorers. Shar watched as Sal Mishlan himself reached the edge of the crowd, where a couple wealthy halflings waited. The three exchanged inaudibly below the cheers, and disappeared down the street.

"He'll be off to Union Hall." Shar's father commented nonchalantly. The boy almost jumped, having forgotten everything around him until that moment.

"What do they want with him?" The boy asked, curious.

"Same thing as everyone else: they want to know what he found." He smiled as he watched his young son's look of wonder. "C'mon, I've got to get to the Guildhall and turn in these papers, and your mother will have my hide if we're out too late."

- Famous explorer Sal Mishlan returns from a voyage to explore the Eastern Continent and is summoned before the Union Council to report his discoveries.

Guild Union of Shidrus

City of Nishlan

The Union Council, though not currently in session had been brought together for an emergency congregation due to the premature arrival of the galley Vasidir. It had been tasked to navigate the entire of the Eastern Continent and allow the cartographers to map and document as much as possible. The vessel had set sail nearly nine months ago and the Union Council had begun to voice its uncertainty of the ships return. It was early in the morning, and all of the Union members sat comfortably in their chairs, most kept their jackets on as the fires of the meeting chamber had not yet been stirred into a roar, a few of the older members puffed nonchalantly on their own pipes as Sal Mishlan made his entrance, the dramatic cries of young halfling girls were drowned out as a pair of wardens closed and locked the door behind him.

" Welcome back, Captain Mishlan. We had begun to wonder how much fun you were having on the open sea! " One of the councilors from the Nashkir Guild shouted, though it was more in sarcastic jest than discipline. Sal offered a bright smile as laughter briefly overtook the world.

" We shan't hold you long, Mr. Mishlan, as we're sure there's a young, beautiful girl that's waiting on you somewhere. " Another councilor noted, and his voice was followed by the scribbling of parchment. " Now tell us, what is it that you found. "

Sal Mishlan removed his cap, tucked it briefly into the folds of his light wool coat than began. " The Eastern Continent appears relatively uninhabited. The Southern portion is primarily plains with mountain ranges further near the south and also near the center. There are two deep inlets that we navigated, both of which can support agriculture and heavy fishing, but the second peninsula seemed to be home to a civilization. " He paused as several of the councilors hurriedly scribbled notes while others continued to listen intently. " We crossed their path only once, and we had only limited contact. They our only slightly taller than us, with skin as black as stone and hair as white as snow! They were heavily armed and so we did not press the matter and instead left the peninsula. We went as far north as we could but the plains began to end at the mouth of a huge and endless desert. We turned about and headed home. "

" Thank you, Captain. " A less than cheerful voice monotonously droned.

" And als -- " Sal began again.

" That will be all, Captain. "

Somewhat disappointed, Mishlan haphazardly slapped his cap across his head and exited the room, the wardens promptly closed and locked it shortly after.

" What's got you down, Gwaren? " One of the younger councilors chimed in, his complaint obviously directed toward the much older councilor from the Shalinan Guild, Severan.

" Mishlan spent the last nine months running a muck on the open seas and has found nothing! He has squandered valuable resources of the Union! "

" Now now . . "

The councilors did not delude into rampant debate, but rather tenuous discussion. They broke for lunch and came back two hours later. They continued the discussion then broke for tea. Such was the Halfling way. Mishlan had not been totally unsuccessful. He had discovered at least one location of valuable stone, as well as a location where the presence of local fish colonies could be utilized for fishing and aquaculture operations. However the Union would have to come together and decide on what their course of action would be.

City of Sal
Marketplace


" Why can't we get three fish for dinner, ma! " Jud asked, tugging incessantly on his mothers tunic.

" Three?! I barely have enough for two! You know how much these cost, boy?! "

Although Jud's mother was right in her financial evaluation, three was the appropriate number to feed a family of three by Halfling status. Two was adequate but would not have filled any of their bellies as they would have liked. Only three vendors sold fish in Sal, as it was an expensive ordeal to have it shipped from Nishlan or Dadlir. The price had doubled in the last months but Jud's mother knew that fish was a family favorite. She had skipped out on the potatoes this time, their price had gone up a few gold pieces as well. Jud's father, Drudan, had literally been breaking his back in the fields, more so than other routine culture who did not have to battle the constant snowdrifts that occurred. Even in the summer season, the snow was a constant deterrence to farmers in the region and more times than once this past winter Drudan simply didn't have work and coin was tough to come by. Jud's family was only one family that had begun to feel the effects of an inevitable recession that was going to come as Shidrus slowly ran out of places to mine and fields to plant in.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- Sal Mishlan's journey has discovered a Stone resource near the southern tip of the Eastern Continent. He has also discovered an Aquaculture resource on the southern peninsula on the eastern coast of the Eastern Continent. He has also identified a race, which unknown to the Union of Shidrus is the Oligarchy of Unao' Si Ti.

-- Due to lack of natural resources as well as prominent trade agreements with other kingdoms and colonies. Times are getting harder in Shidrus

Union Hall
City of Nishlan


The last rays of sunlight fluttered over the waters of dusk, barely fingering the small, tight windows of the great Union Hall which overlooked the city from its hilltop. A faint yellow light responded, illuminating the square windows against the dark wooden walls of the hall. The frosty wind howled across frozen streets, as halflings made their way to home, or visited their favorite haunts.

The convocation chamber of the Union, the largest room of the hall, where policies were made and debates held, was largely empty. Yet despite its status, the fire burned fiercely in its place, chewing through wood the nighttime servant had fed it. Among the dual semicircles of desks and daises four hobbits still sat, having long abandoned their formal positions and congregated to those seats nearest the fire. Their compatriots and fellows had already departed, tired of debate and unnecessary for a decision. The Union Charter was curiously simple on that point: there were only four votes- one for each guild. In the normal course of debate and publicity each guild might send as many as a dozen representatives to speak for it, but only one of each was truly necessary.

"We've been missing the important aspect here." Viran Thal, Guildmaster of the Didlasi Guild, explained, thumbing on Sal Mishlan's new map. "It's true, we don't really need stone and it's hard to transport, but that's not why we need a colony here. The point is geography."

"A stepping stone." Tor Shadius, Chair of Hathrkan's Administration Committee, volunteered.

"Exactly! Right now it takes weeks just to reach the eastern continent, and we have to go that far to access the western side of the eastern continent too. Half of any voyage is just reaching the channel. With a colony here, our ships would be able to restock before heading north or taking the trip all the way back to Shidrus."

An elderly, narrow-eyed hobbit sat back in his seat, mentally running through the figures in his head. His clothes of fine fur and gold thread marked him as Harrus Murand, Guildmaster of Shalinan. "It works out." He announced, finally. "It would reduce our costs substantially once it was up and running, although founding it will require significant capital. The stone and fishing available on-site will help justify the costs, and if we can establish trade with these northerners the colony will made commerce much easier."

This laid any doubts the others had to rest. Murand was a master of finances, and they were all confident of his keen sense of money management.

"What about these foreigners though?" Shadius asked openly.

The fourth member of the group shrugged, pulling a chewed-up pipe out of his mouth. "Let Mishlan deal with them. He might be a romantic, but that's exactly what we need here: someone friendly and charismatic." Shar Thamish opinionated.

"He's charismatic, but does he have the prudence to make a deal?"

"Don't underestimate Mishlan." Thal retorted. "He may act like a fool, but he earned his way to captaincy, and he kept a crew together for eight months. There's more behind him than his charming exterior."

"I agree, but perhaps Shadius has a point. Let's send admiral Tenian along with another ship. Mishlan can do his part and if things go sour, or these foreigners aren't impressed by Mishlan's attitude, Tenian can step in."

"That could work." Shadius replied. "We'll have to make their roles very clear, otherwise the two will chafe."

"Of course." Harrus stretched, his elderly bones creaking in the cooling air. "Now if we're done here, I'd like to get home before everything ices over. Shall we adjourn for today?"

-----------------------------------------
- The Council Decides to found a colony just east of the southern tip of the eastern continent to act as a stepping stone to further expansion.
- Sal Mishlan and Admiral Tenian are sent to the Oligarchy of Unao' Si Ti to open up relations with the foreigners.

City of Nishlan

It was times like this, Shal Danlin decided, when the true strength of the Union stood out. In scarcely more than a week they had catapulted their plans into action, and already the first steps towards Shidrus' first colony were well under way. The docks were deafening with the bustle of workers and preparations. In the next drydock over, Hathrkan and Nashkir workers were busily working away with saws, planks, and hammers as they assembled the hull of two new galleys- a new two-oared design, meant for light patrol work around the colony in place of the more expensive triremes. Although they had only been begun two days ago, the first ribs of the ship were already in bracing. Above the chorus of hammer and saw the cries of dockworkers and porters filled the streets, forcing Shal to dodge hither and thither as he advanced. Resources for the colony were pouring in: food for the first few weeks, iron and steel materials that would be irreplaceable, nets, anything vital that the colonists would not be able to make on their own. Guild memebers in places as far off as Sal would be filling out applications and sending materials to prepare for this colony.

"We already have the general location from Mishlan's maps." Shal caught a voice over the crowd. Squeezing between two full carts, he managed to extricate himself from the bustle and found himself on one of the massive wharfs of Nishlan, a great Trireme moored along one side. Off to one side, Out of the way of the porters and crewmen, two Union commanders were conversing, one apparently lecturing the other. Shal recognized the speaker as Commander Damid, the expedition's military commander. "Your job is to find the most suitable location in the area and allow the survey team to do their work. Don't go off exploring, we need those maps as soon as you finish."

"Of course, Commander. It's a simple assignment."

"Good, I'll let you get back to your preparations. Good luck tomorrow. . . Ah, Danlin." The commander hailed Shal, "Good timing. I was just making sure Captain Mashkir understands his assignment. He's heading out with Mishlan and the admiral tomorrow."

"Isn't he surveying the colony site? Why is he leaving with Mishlan?"

"Safety and support." The commander explained, "The three ships will take the first leg of the voyage together. Mashkir will stop at the colony site, survey it, and report back while Mishlan and Admiral Tenian continue on."

"I see. The Council has certainly done a good job with the overall plan. But that's not why I'm here; the rest of the Colony Board is assembling, and we'll need your presence as well.

"Let's get going then. Lead the way, Danlin."

---------------------------

The Shalinan Guildhall was nearest the ports, and it was there that the Colonization Board had elected to meet. The front rooms of the expansive building were almost as crowded as the street. Receptionists and bureaucrats were busy processing members, the bureaucracy of the guild at work. Some were registering their visitation or transferring from a different location, some were logging their inventories, others applying for financial backing or exception from one of the guild's rules, some were applying for membership in the colonial expedition. The dizzy hubbub of halflings captured attention, holding it hostage against the tapestries and paintings along the walls and the glass lamps above the entrance hall.

Shal Danlin and Captain Mashkir were quickly guided past the crowd, into one of the restricted backrooms where private meetings were held. Three other halflings were already there, seated before truly massive piles of letters, maps, notes, and paperwork.

"I see we're all here." Shal said, giving no-one time to complain about his lateness as he swung around into his seat. "Didlasi's preparations are going well. We already have 600 applications, so I expect no trouble choosing the best colonists for the job."

"Wonderful," The Shalinan member spoke facetiously, "Groundbreaking supplies will be ready on time- barely. I'm having a hard time securing cloth and rope with all the naval activity going on. Those new ships aren't helping. I'm already receiving applicants for merchants who want to open up in the colony, but I'll be unable to accept more than a handful before we have the ground-plans and exact location down."

"I've already accepted some applications, and am getting more everyday." The Nashkir representative explained. "It will take time for the personnel to get here. Winter's not quite gone, and there's a lot of paperwork and personnel going along the roads. If there are any vacancies for the groundbreaking expedition I'll take reserve applicants that are already in Nishlan."

"Hathrkan's in the same situation. I've got plenty of applicants, but we need the best for the groundbreaking expedition. Before you arrived we were discussing the posibility of pooling some of the mailing and transportation resources with Shalinan to streamline things, maybe allocating some of our funds to pay porters for transportation."

Shal nodded in agreement. "Gods know we have money to spare. What about you, Commander Damid?"

"The Winter's Teeth warden company is amassed and ready for departure. I've been drilling them as best I can in the kind of combat we might expect- Forest fighting, static defense, wilderness training- as well as for the kind of manual labor they could help with. I don't know how much it'll help, given the different environment, but I don't want them going soft waiting for their ships."

"Everything's going according to plan then." Shal observed gleefully. "Let's go over the overall plan one more time then, shall we?
Tomorrow, Captain Mashkir will depart with the Diplomatic Expedition. He will sail to the colony site and do a detailed survey of the area before returning. Six weeks from now, or after Captain Mashkir returns, we'll send off the Groundbreaking Expedition- A third of Commander Damid's wardens, along with five hundred woodsmen and other colonists. They're to prepare the site for the rest of the colonists by excavating the site, setting up rudimentary accommodations, and gathering raw materials for construction. When the rest of the colonists arrive a month later, they will have accommodations to maintain them until construction is finished and plenty of construction materials to begin work on the colony. The final population should be roughly twenty-six hundred- Damid's wardens, two 'biremes,' and two thousand colonists. Once the colony is running, we can expect more immigrants as necessary."

Guild Union of Shidrus

The Open Ocean,
Southwest of the Eastern Continent


Five vessels fought against the bickering winds of the open sea. Three had not been enough and the Guild had dipped into it's coffers to ensure the operation went smoothly, soundly. Three Transports sailed at the center flanked by a pair of Biremes. The transports had all been finished in the last week and they carried the most important cargo. Two of them held a thousand colonists each, and it was not a comfortable affair. The third carried tertiary supplies and the company of Wardens ([i]300 Light Infantry) for the defense of the colony. The journey itself was uneventful, with a single halfling falling overboard from one of the transports and being recovered a few moments later via rope.

The journey to land lasted fifteen days (transports are the slowest vessels around and the biremes have to match their speed), but it was day sixteen that the Commander Damid gave the go ahead to make landfall, with his transport being the first to be beached. The beaches were small and gave way to sweeping plains after about a dozen feet. Trees were a rarity on the entirety of the southern portion of the Eastern Continent, but the mountains Sal Mishlan had reportedly discovered could be seen towering toward the Northwest. Commander Damid gave the order for his Wardens to scout the area, and after a few hours they reported back with no bad news. The colonists however would need to decide whether to establish the colony on the oceanside or to move inward and establish the colony closer to the mountains.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Open Ocean,
Eastern Continent


Sal Mishlan and Admiral Tenians vessel cruised along the shore, but at a respectable distance. Mishlan revisited his maps and ensured that the location where the dark skinned ones had settled was close. It was. They were in different straits however what Mishlan and Tenian saw made them turn back much quicker than they had initially anticipated. The dark skinned ones had no harbor, no sea vessels to speak of, but their city lay directly on the coast in a small inlet beset with murky waters. Mishlan neared the edge of the ship and pulled a looking glass from his jacket pocket and peered toward the fog. From the eyes of Tenian and the other sailors, bright sparks of scarlet and violet appeared, as if they were chromatic sparks of lightning. The ship continued to inch closer and as it entered the fog the entourage got a clear view of what was happening.

The dark skinned ones were slaughtering each other. Some wielded fine blades of steel, others adorned long flowing robes and threw bolts of fiery red and deep purple at one another. Intermittently a dark skinned one lumbered forward, his clothes ragged and his teeth bared. Even rarer still was a hulking figure with skin of crimson and spikes protruding from nearly every inch. The massive monstrosity lumbered forward, picked up one of the enemy dark skinned ones and crunched him into a mulch. Tenian and Mishlan did not stay long and within a few minutes the ship was headed south along the Eastern Continent. The ship was headed home.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- The colonists' ship make landfall. The area is clear. They must now choose a location to establish themselves.
-- 9 Economic Points were spent by the Guild to create 3 Transports to facilitate the colonists move.
-- Sal Mishlan and Admiral Tenian discover the initial civilization that Mishlan discovered has fallen into disarray and are apt to use dark magics and summon demons.

Lashid Colony, Centroppen Sea

Shal Danlin paused in his directions, wiping the sweat from his brow as he looked around him. Everything had gone according to plan.

The groundbreaking team which had arrived some weeks ago had done their job well, preparing the site for the rest of the colonists. They had cleared out the location the surveyors had chosen, flattening the ground, marking construction sites, and preparing for the next batch of arrivals. When the colonists had landed the site had been cleared for use and marked according to the already-prepared layout of the soon-to-be city. Great piles of logs and timber had been hewn and stacked in anticipation of use, along with stacks of loose stone for rock walls and loads of gravel to make mortar from. Tents had already been set up for the colonist to stay in until construction was complete.

But it was already clear that the tents would not be needed long. With thousands of colonists working and supplies ready to use, the colony was rising at an astounding rate. The crews of the biremes and Damid's Wardens had been drafted into helping with construction, and those who weren't building were bringing in even more supplies for construction, foraging for food, or clearing and seeding what would eventually become a collection of outlying farms. Two of the transports had emptied their loads and were now off the coast, hauling fish to feed the expedition. The last was still laden with loads of irreplaceable supplies- iron tools, nails, cloth, and other vitals.

Danlin had designed the town himself- a task always reserved for Didlasi. He was quite proud of it. The colony was planned out for an eventual population of five thousand- the Guilds expected Lashid to eventually become a hub of trade in the area. At the colony's center were the four guildhalls, the town square and markets, all connected to the busy docks by a short, wide road which would support plenty of traffic. The docks themselves would house warehouses, officers and storefronts. The shorter the distance goods had to be hauled, the better. East of the center was the higher-end residential districts- housing, estates and such- while the labor camps and lower-class housing was to the west, closer to the work.

It was these labor camps which would go up first. Several long, large buildings that would eventually become large dormitories for laborers and colonists were swiftly rising above the ground. When completed they would house most of the colonists while they worked on the rest of the city. Eventually they would probably lose their necessity and be repurposed, but for now they would form the first step. Once they were done, it was on to the docks and Guildhalls.

-----------------------------------
- Plans for Lashid Colony are laid out
- Construction on Lashid Colony housing for colonists is nearing completion
- 2 transports are fishing at nearby Aquaculture resource to supply the colony
- The Warden company and crew of the two biremes have been drafted into assisting in the colony's construction

Didlasi Guildhall, Lashid Colony

"You gave our harbor master a bit of a scare when the Revonas showed up." Danlin commented over a mug of ale. "He thought he was going to have to supply a fully-crewed galleon for a minute."

"Yes, my apologies for the surprise. I've been preparing my expedition for some time, but the founding of this colony brought some last-minute changes." Captain Lishdin paused, looking around the sparsely furnished room, "I am impressed though. You've done much in very little time. The piers were ready for the Revonas to land at when I though I would be hauling those supplies with the longboat, and you've already got the guildhalls complete, even the fort looks promising."

"The colony was well planned." Commander Damid pointed out. "We had supplies ready for construction and no need to excavate, so it was just a matter of construction. That and labor; they even put my Wardens to work digging gravel if you'll believe it."

"I'm sure that counts as protection of the colony somehow."

"It would in Shidrus, Nevate knows, but it's so damned pleasant out here it's unsettling. I keep expecting Rocs overhead, or a pack of Skareg out of the forest. Instead there hasn't been so much as a blizzard."

"I know how you feel. Sailing in the northern seas is like that, far too peaceful for my tastes."

"Speaking of the northern seas," The Shalinan representative leaned forward, joining the conversation. "Where exactly will your expedition take you?"

"The northwest continent." Lishdin explained. "We know little about it except that it's there. I plan to map the coast and make contact with any civilizations that may be there. After the discovery of those barbarians on the eastern continent the Union is hoping that there are some less violent peoples somewhere. They gave me the right to speak as a representative of the Union."

"Such a discovery would be very good for Lashid." The Shalinan representative thought aloud, "It would make our colony here a stopping point between Shidrus and any lands in the north."

Danlin agreed. "Even if there aren't any civilizations about and we are alone in this world, chances are the northlands will have valuable resources. Lashid may be only the first of many colonies."

"That is my hope. I want to see the Union achieve its true destiny. Divided we were barbarians, but united we will spread our civilization to the furthest reaches of the world."

"I'll toast to that!" Damid agreed enthusiastically, manhandling his ale. "To the great destiny of the Union." There was a chorus of cheers, ale sloshed in mugs as the halflings sat among the skeleton of their first colony. None of them doubted that it would be the first of many.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
- Shows Shidaran discomfort with ease and safety, and common beliefs about the future of the Union
- Shows development of Lashid Colony
- The galley Revonas has stopped at Lashid Colony. It will sail to the northwest colony and map the coast in hopes of discovering valuable resources and other civilizations

Guild Union of Shidrus

The Open Ocean,
Southwest of the Eastern Continent


Two islands, one larger than the other were spotted the fifth day of the trip. Upon closer inspection they were both found to be harboring volcanoes, the smaller of the two islands had one that seemed inactive, while the other volcano fumed and seemed ready to explode. All around the base of the larger volcano a lush forest flourished in the apparent aftermath of the last eruption some years ago (Wood resource). The Revonas gave full circle to the small mountain chain before continuing north and following the billowing winds and evasive seagulls until land was finally spotted. The continent was massive, with no apparent end in sight. This was not the most interesting of news however. There were people! People!

The settlements were scarce and far and few in between, but they were there. The small houses were quaint, made mostly with wood and straw, they had external cookers and small farms, a few cogs traveled to and fro in the shallower waters and one particular fisherman even waved as the Revonas hesitantly passed by in the distance. The biggest settlement seen was a compilation of three small houses and a single larger one, but as they spurred further up the coast a small townsend with a port large enough to take on the girth of the Revonas was spotted at the very tip of the extending peninsula. They were humans and seemed relatively civilized, but the crew was skeptical as their last foray with foreigners was nearly disastrous.

ISSUE #1

Nine in thirteen days.

Nine halflings had disappeared in the last thirteen days. It was mostly early in the morning that the reports reached patrolling Wardens. Crying mothers and confused fathers who had to report to the journeymen that it seemed as if their children just vanished overnight. The oldest halfling disappearance was sixteen years old, her name was Nemia. The reports were sent to the Guild Hall as well as neighboring Warden halls, but there was little to do about it. Bandits and highwaymen were at a relatively low level in recent times, and even large predatory creatures were somewhat lacking in the winter months.

The numbers were increasing and requests were reaching the Guild Hall of increasing the Warden patrols in the area, but the Wardens were relatively thin in number and the requests were becoming difficult to fill, even with Wardens taking on longer shifts. A solution, at least temporarily had to be filled, lest people start becoming afraid to leave their own homes!

Union Hall

"Unacceptable sirs, simply unacceptable." a young Didlasi pounded emphatically on the desk before him. "It would be an insult to Heruth himself- to every halfling that wears the uniforms- to do such a thing. Handing villagers shields and telling them to go hunt bandits does not make them soldiers!" Cries of "aye" and "yes" followed the speech. The Union Hall was particularly excited today; the honor and integrity of the Guild Union Army was an issue close to many hearts.

"Consider the cost and balance ratios. We have armories full of supplies with no one to wear them, are we to simply leave that equipment to rot while our forces are stretched thin, because we do not have the resources to give them proper uniforms?"

"The Guild Union Army wouldn't accept raw recruits." A Hathrkan pointed out. "Highshield Narus was openly contemptuous of the idea, and you won't find any shields who like the idea better."

"Exactly!" The young Didlasi spoke up again, to the obvious annoyance of one of his superiors, a fact that he would find out to his cost later. "It would spoil the esteem of our armed forces. Didlasi will not stand for it; none of our members would join such a force." This was a more serious threat than it sounded. Despite Didlasi's smaller size, it contributed a disproportionate number of soldiers to the GUA.

The Shalinan speaker and his allies looked around for support, but it was obvious that the council was against him. The precious discipline and prestige of the GUA would take precedence over numbers. "If that is the case, we must at least reallocate shields to deal with the issue."

"Agreed." Viran Thal spoke, and the others quieted at the words of the Guildmaster. "The motion to equip militia troops for the GUA is denied. Discussion of alternatives will be tabled for committee consideration."

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Lashid Colony

"Ropes away! Disembarking!" Sailors caught massive ropes as the dockworkers threw them. Two lines of oars pushed outward in unison, bumping off the dock and pushing the bireme into the open water.

"Set course 195 Southwest." Captain Hadrada ordered, shifting easily as the ship began to glide across the shining blue sea. The men were in high spirits, talking and laughing as they pulled the oars. After all, they had been working at construction for the last few weeks; it was good to finally be sailing again. Hadrada looked back at the town.

It was amazing how fast it had grown. Just over a month ago there had been nothing but empty lots and piles of dirt. Now the colony of Lashid was a thriving town of two thousand, complete with lively markets and fine homes. Fish from the seas around the island were being stored in massive warehouses. Some were eaten, and the rest were salted and shipped to Shidrus in bulk. The city garrison now had a fortified barracks that could hold three times its current complement, as well as a tall tower that acted as a lighthouse and a watchpost. No ships were going to pass through the nearby strait without Lashid knowing about it.

Now that the town was complete, the bireme's true purpose could be fulfilled. Hadrada could see the other vessel, sailing on a more western tact than his own vessel as the two sped away from town. Their duty was to patrol the seas around the colony, regulated commerce, protecting traders from possible pirates or privateers, and observing any suspicious activity along the coasts.

"Signal from the town sir."

"I see it, sailor." the flagman repeated the message a second time. A practiced seaman, Hadrada read it easier than letters. Good sailing it said.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
- The Union Council debates the correct course of action to deal with the disappearances. The debates are stalled by argument, but a Formation of Steelshields (100 Heavy Infantry) is sent to the area to temporarily deal with the issue.

- Lashid Colony is largely completed and prepared for greater development. The colony's two Biremes are sent on regular patrols of the surrounding seas and ordered to report anything of note.

Apartment Building - Nishlan City

Shal Nadan sighed, pulling his glasses off and rubbing his eyes before he continued reading. The dim, yellow candlelight by his bedstand was little to go by. But this work. . . it was amazing how much influence a simple pamphlet could have. People were still debating who had wrote it. Personally, Nadan guessed it was one of the guildmasters; it advocated policies that had already been implemented in part, and it was too well written. Whomever had formulated this essay had a firm Shidaran education, which meant Didlasi or Shalinan, or else someone high up on the guild ladder.

On the table next to his bed were his notes, a simple summary of the essay's main points:

1) Naval domination is Shidrus' best route for prosperity. - Shidrus' lands are poor and remote, the seas offer access to wealth and a means of transportation. If Shidrus is to prosper it must have uncontested control of the oceans.

2) Colonizing and patrolling the oceans is unfeasible - the oceans are vast, and Shidrus is distant from the northern seas. The number of patrols necessary to cover the oceans would be excessively costly and spread the navy thin, making it vulnerable to competitors. Likewise, Shidrus cannot fortify and develop every colony.


. . . These were fair enough points, and ones that everyone agreed with. People had been arguing about how to implement colonization and naval dominance for years now. It was the main thesis of the paper, the next section, that caused all the commotion:

3) In order to prosper, Shidrus must develop several fortified "hub" colonies - By controlling key locations around the world, Shidrus can enforce naval dominance without spreading its navy thin. Fleets stationed at every hub can sent out scouting patrols and respond in force to any act of aggression. Other colonies can be defended by centralized fleets, and will not require costly defenses or development.

. . . When the essay had begun to circulate, there had been a great hubbub about it. People in the streets and guildhalls were debating the idea, drawing up maps and arguing over it. For a while things had seemed to hang, but today... today the Union Council had practically endorsed the essay in every way but framing it and pinning it to a wall. Lashid was to be expanded, eventually fortified, and a section of the fleet stationed there. A lumber colony would be necessary for that, of course, and plans were going ahead for that too. And three new exploration missions, three! Nadan had his misgivings, he wondered if Shidrus was not overextending itself with all these plans. Lashid was a good start, but to already be planning two or three steps ahead... he hoped it would work out. The Guildmasters were smart people, cunning even. He was sure they knew the risks quite well, which meant that they saw an even greater reward.

Guild Union of Shidrus

ISSUE #1: Disappearances in the Lowlands

The beast had been killed the Warden swore up and down. It was less of a beast though and more a halfling, though the Halfling seemed to have taken on some gruesome and rather bestial characteristics. The Warden was not lying, his shield's edge had been bent as if some great calamity had struck it and his blade was bloodied. There was no creature, and only the remnants of some halfling footprints off into the uninhabitable taiga were left. The attack had occurred in the middle of the night and was seen by no one else save for the one particular warden.

Three days later, two Wardens disappeared while patrolling the Southern portion of the townsends. Investigating Wardens inferred that a struggle had indeed taken place, but where the Wardens had went, or been taken to was still unknown. The people were still afraid and even more so now that the Guild Union's own army seemed to be incapable of protecting them. True, no more children or civilian halflings had been abducted, but it seemed instead to be replaced by the needless disappearance of Guild Union shields.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

First Trireme - The first trireme returned after countless days of searching with empty hands. The Shidran continent was barren, and while the lands of the nearby continent seemed vast, there were no natural resources along the beaches except a single small alcove where fishing seemed plentiful. The continent itself may have harbored further resources, but on the coast there was little. (Aquaculture Resource Node).

Second Trireme - The second trireme returned, badly damaged and with half of it's ores broken and its own mast destroyed. The crazed and belligerent crew explained how the islands were thick with jungles and danger. Unable to see anything, both triremes (second and third) made shore and explored. The trireme's cartographer made note of this:
-- Southeastern Island: " .. traces of ancient mithril found near the central cave system. Large nest of Dire Spiders present, could not advance any further to investigate if a vein of mithril was present or not. "

-- Southwestern Island: " .. large presence of exotic cats on the island, lost Davad and Karath to the beasts on the second day. Jurros killed one and found that it's fur presents a much better alternative to seal fur. "

-- Northern Island: " .. the lizard people did not seem hostile, but rather only barbaric. They had heavy mining operations going on, Kylin said he saw a cart full of gold near the chieftain's hut, and I saw for a fact that they were all wielding weapons of bronze myself! "

-- Third Trireme's Demise: " .. and the heavy storms made navigation difficult, but that's not what sunk her. I saw it myself, huge tentacles came forth from the sea and wrapped around her, all the way around! Pulled her down into the depths. I .. I can still hear'em screamin', can still hear'em screamin'. "

Third Trireme - The third trireme never returned. It's destination was clear and its crew was not amateur, but the vessel departed from Shidrus and headed north but never came back. The final fate of the vessel was explained only by those still surviving members of the second trireme that could tell the tale.

Letter from Commander Damid to the Highshield Verafor

. . . Although we can make no sure guesses as to the Sessauan reaction to our presence, there is cause for concern. The Sessauan captain had what captain Nire described as a 'restrained, but clearly hostile' bearing, and while the governor of New Mille has shown no hostility it is possible he is not representative of the whole of Sessau. Judging by the size of New Mille, I estimate the homeland to be several times as large as Shidrus. Considering the weather and conditions of the colonies, Sessau is likely a more populous and prosperous country. I believe it likely that in the event of open warfare even a small expeditionary force from the continent would have the numbers to threaten Lashid Colony.

The Guildmasters on Lashid have agreed with me in my estimations. We have decided to accelerate plans to develop Lashid into a defensible hub of activity in the north. Construction of a fortified wooden wall around Lashid's borders is well underway. The Guildmasters have also seen fit to modify the hulls of two of our transports into warships in order to increase patrols and provide adequate defense. Ambassador Shinir has promised to attempt a diplomatic solution to the dispute; we have not heard back from him yet. The Guildmasters have also decided to withdraw from Hrothar Lumber Camp until Lashid is capable of defending itself, and/or we have more information on Sessau's reaction to our presence. All sensitive information and the vast majority of personnel have been moved to Lashid for the time being. Only fifty personnel remain to maintain infrastructure and continue marking the island so that operations can recommence smoothly at a later date.

As commander of Lashid's garrison I request reinforcements for the security of the colony. The Company at my command will be inadequate in the event of even a small invasion, and we have insufficient ships to enforce Shidrus' sovereignty in the area.

Captain Damid of the Lashid Colony Garrison

-----------------------------------

Captain Damid,

If you have received our reply then you have already received your reinforcements. Lashid colony is of the utmost strategic importance to Lashid's expansion and influence. We are sending the vast majority of our navy, ten Triremes under the command of admiral Tinian, to reinforce Lashid. Your first priority is to defend Lashid as a stronghold of Shidaran influence in the region at all costs. Your second objective is to uncompromisingly enforce Shidaran sovereignty in the region. Shidrus is not under any circumstances to acquiesce to any claims, bribes, or threats to surrender Shidaran interests in the region. Negotiation with Sessau is to hinge upon their acceptance of our interests in the region.

Unfortunately circumstances in Shidrus have precluded the immediate dispatch of infantry to Lashid. Therefore, you will be cooperating with Admiral Tinian to ensure naval defense for the immediate future. Carry out your orders for the future destiny of Shidrus.

Highshield Verafor.

--------------------------------------------------
- Constructed a Wooden Defensive Wall around Lashid Colony (-18 EP)
- Modified 2 Transports to warships (preferably Triremes)(-X MP)
- Dispatched 10 Triremes under the command of Highshield Tinian to Lashid Colony
- Moved 1,950 colonists from Hrothar Lumber Colony to Lashid Colony (Lumber resource goes dormant until resettlement)

Island of the Lizardmen

Sal Mishlan was in his element here: daringly exploring exotic lands, meeting strange creatures and negotiating with them. Standing in a foot of water with the waves and surf lapping up to his knees, he nonetheless emitted charisma like a beacon in the middle of the night. His heavy jacket kept the spray off his back, and his hat would have done the same was he not holding it in his hand.

". . .we come from a distant land, where the earth is frozen in ice and the sun hides behind the clouds." He was explaining the the chief, who stood comfortably on the beach with his warriors about him. Mishlan had done that purposefully, by standing in the surf with his own men he respected the tribe's territory. It allowed him to show respect while the galley Dashnan, which rested not twenty yards out in the surf, discouraged the chief from thinking of the halflings as soft. "Your tribe owns many things which we desire, and so I have been sent to trade for them. The gold your people mine and the furs of the beasts on these islands - we will pay or trade for these things if your tribe is willing. We come to trade, and will not force your people to agree, nor intrude on your lands."

The Union did have plans for a new colony here, but with the fleet defending its claim to Lishdin and the Centroppen sea there was time to spare. Mishlan was here to establish good relations with the lizardmen natives. If the Union could access resources through the natives it would take much less work to exploit and defend the islands.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shidrus Lowlands

A week earlier

"In Shirus' name, what are you thinking?" The Commander pleaded, pointing at the bulletin posted on the wall. The other halfling, an old, gruff Shidaran with brawny arms and a deep-set brow, folded his arms in reply. "People are dyin'. Your boys are doing your best, but you know 'well as I do that just guarding the town isn't enough. We gotta get out there and kill that thing. Burn it to ashes."

"But a Hunt? That thing killed seasoned warriors, what do you think it'll do to people?"

The other halflings spat. "Shut your mouth, you're a Shidaran. There ain't no one in this town who hasn't dealt with beasts and danger before. Some of you kids must be getting soft, talking like that."

"You're really going to..."

"Ain't nothin' you can do to stop me." The old Shidaran pointed out. The Commander gagged a little at the man's bluntness, but he was right. As the local leader of the Hathrkan guild, this halfling was entirely within his rights to declare a hunt, and with the cooperation of the other guilds he would get it.

". . . Fine, have it your way. At least let me ask for reinforcements before we go off chasing this thing."

----

Present

The Hunt was an old Shidaran tradition. Back in the darker days, the local wardens would only be able to do so much to keep beasts and bandits in check. The hunt was for situations where things got out of control. The entire village, or even the inhabitants of several villages, would gather together and hunt down the beasts, slaughtering them and burning their corpses.

Because of the form of the hunt, it was slow work. Setting off from the location of the last victim and following the creature's tracks, the hunters made a long line across the taiga. Armed with Knives, bows, weighed nets of twisted wire and other weapons, the villages slowly advanced forward, making a huge ruckus with their calls and clatter. Every hole was searched, every hiding place marked. Dozens of lesser animals who got in the way would be killed. The hunt could take days to complete, and every night the hunters would settle down where they were, building a line of huge bonfires to warm themselves and trap the creature.

The leaders and trackers of the hunt would coordinate the event, bending and shifting the line to herd their quarry into a corner. Eventually, although it could take days or even weeks, the creature would be cornered and subdued.

The Hathrkan guild had arranged this hunt with the cooperation of the others. Hundreds of halflings were marching, yelling at the top of their lungs, waving torches about as they went. The Steel-Shields advanced with the halflings, ready to use their swords and shields to defend the civilian hunters. Few creatures would attack when fire was present, but even if a desperate beast tried to break through the line, it would have a daunting task. Nowhere was there fewer than a dozen men in a cluster, one or two of them likely soldiers. The ruckus of an attack would also bring the rest of the hunt bearing down on that location, only quickening the speed at which the creature trapped itself.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Sal Mishlan is directed to attempt negotiations with the lizardmen. His goal is to establish good relations with them in hopes of future agreements, and hopefully to establish trade as well.
- A Great Hunt is called to hunt down and eliminate the creature which has been menacing the lowlands. The entire male populace of the surrounding area is partaking in the hunt. In addition to the Formation already present, five more tiers were sent to aid in the hunt, bringing the number of soldiers assisting in the expedition up to 150.

Guild Union of Shidrus

Island of the Lizardman

Sal Mishlan would forever be remembered as a true pioneer of the Shidran lifestyle. He was at the forefront of everything it meant in Shidran lifestyle. The details are sketchy, as nearly every member of his crew gave a compelling, albeit slightly different account of his demise. One said that the Chieftain had insulted his mother, and Mishlan and the Chieftain dueled to the death right there on the beach, another said that the Chieftain seemed rather quaint and invited Mishlan to their settlement where they tied him up and sacrificed him to their gods. Still yet another said that Mishlan single handedly fought off the lot of them as they attempted to capture him and as he ran back toward the ship a fired arrow hit him in the back and felled him. The body was not recovered and on the return trip, as the vessel passed the string of small islands, several of the halfling sailors commented on seeing a huge obsidian tower, though little was mentioned verbally ; only such an indication was made via the ships log and several personal journals of many of the halflings.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


Shidrus Lowlands

The strategy was a success, though by what means was uncertain. Within three days six of the creatures had been cornered and slain. They had been halflings, at least one time. Many of them could be identified as the very youth that had been stolen away so many weeks ago. They had changed though ; their skin had grown incessantly pale and their fingernails long and wicked. It was observed that in almost scenario of killing the .. creatures that they were strangely fast and seemingly capable of lifting another halfling over their head and tossing them with ease. They were all identified with an anomaly of having two sharpened canines, and most of the soldiers and civilians that came into direct contact with the creatures all similarly observed that the halflings had been prone to attempt to bite them, of which happened at least thrice (all three people were quarantined, their ultimate fate up to the guildmasters).

On the sixth day of the hunt, the originator of such an infestation was met and nearly apprehended. He was human, or at least appeared as such by his height and characteristics. It was the Jensen Patrol, nineteen civilians and four soldiers who ran into him. The taiga had given way to a small gathering of frozen trees and shrubs when they heard it. Some creature, some .. thing was devouring an already deceased halfling. They came into the small clearing near the center of the pseudo-forest and silently observed the lithé individual gorge himself on the remains of the halfling.

" Is that it? " One of the Wardens asked.

" That's no beast, it's a man! " Another of the Wardens whispered back.

" Well there's no men here in Shidrus, so that has to be it! " The lead Warden, still crouched behind a few shrubs whispered back, but with the conversation expired and all those present casting their gaze back to the location of the man, he was gone, and only the halfling's body remained.

" Huh? " The lead warden said and looked back to the group when in a single instant the man fell upon the group.

He was fast. Faster than the civilians. Faster than the Wardens. The first halfling tried to cast his net over the man and instead caught only air. The man was on him again, his razorlike fingers slammed into the halflings throat and raised him from the ground as if he were a child. He observed the halfling for a brief second than cast him to the side before continuing his assault on the others. The commotion did not go unheard, less than thirty feet away Nashar Patrol had heard the screams and cries and came running fast. By the time they arrived the carnage had already been done. The man was standing there, one of the Wardens cradled like a baby and blood from a half-dozen puncture wounds leaking like a faucet.

One of the Wardens, Fran Torran, knocked an arrow and loosed it without much thought. The arrow landed firmly across the mans thigh and caused him to cry in rage. He dropped the dead Warden and pulled the arrow from his thigh and subsequently took off, westward. He ran fast, faster than a horse and faster than any Shidran. The night ended by collecting the slain and exchanging tales. A few runners were sent back to Shidrus to tell the tale. Much land had been covered and any further ended in nothing but shear tundra. A barren landscape almost unable to support life. Funding a large amount of people would cost Shidrus additional funds, otherwise a small fellowship would have to continue the journey.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- Sal Mishlan is killed after attempting to negotiate with the Lizardmen in the Archipelago Islands. The exact details are unknown.
-- Three people in the Hunt have been bitten. Their ultimate fate is up to the guildmasters.
-- Rumors of a huge obsidian tower on one of the smaller islands is reported by the disillusioned crew of Mishlan's returning vessel.
-- The Hunt continues and many of the creatures are killed, but it's leader, a man is still at large. His exact origin is unknown as Shidran has no legitimate knowledge of vampirism on record except perhaps for some vampiric bats or creatures in days past.
-- To continue hunting the man on a large scale via the Hunt would cost 9 Economic Points, otherwise a fellowship of anywhere between 4 to 12 can be sent ahead for free. Any composition can be sent.
