About the adventure

🌊 π‘Šπ‘Žπ‘‘π‘’π‘Ÿ. π‘Šπ‘Žπ‘‘π‘’π‘Ÿ πΈπ‘£π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘¦π‘€β„Žπ‘’π‘Ÿπ‘’. 🌊 Caribdus is a water world, but it wasn’t always so. It was once several small continents with many prosperous cities, towns, and villages. That was before the π‘†π‘’π‘Ž π»π‘Žπ‘”π‘ . The natives say a trio of witches, triplets with raven-black hair and eyes to match, were discovered working dark sorcery in the masaquani city-state of Ograpog. The three were tried, sentenced by King Amemnus himself, and bound to posts at the edge of Ograpog’s cliffs to drown with the rising tide. With their dying breaths, the sisters cursed Amemnus and his beloved kingdom. As the tide rose, it began to rain. It was a mere drizzle at first, but by the time the waves finally crashed down on the witches’ heads it had become a tempest unlike any Caribdus had ever seen. The rain continued for months, covering the site of the witches’ execution in 50 fathoms of water. Whispers began that the rain would not stop until King Amemnus was dead. The people of Ograpog turned on their liege and chased him to a great ledge overlooking the ocean. The king and his most loyal guards fought over the drowned ruins of their city, killing scores of their own citizens before finally being dragged screaming off the ledgeβ€”into the sea. 🌊 π‘‡β„Žπ‘’ π‘†π‘’π‘Ž π»π‘Žπ‘”π‘  𝑅𝑖𝑠𝑒 🌊 While Caribdus was drowning, the witches’ corpses floated in the depths, too foul even for the fish. As King Amemnus’ life ebbed in that same sea, the sisters’ death curse came true. Their horrid bodies filled with unlife and returned to the world as something far more powerfulβ€”the π‘†π‘’π‘Ž π»π‘Žπ‘”π‘ . 🌊 π‘‡β„Žπ‘’ 𝐷𝑒𝑣𝑖𝑙’𝑠 πΆπ‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘ π‘  🌊 That was thirteen years ago. Now the π‘†π‘’π‘Ž π»π‘Žπ‘”π‘  lair in the middle of the Devil’s Cross, a region of constant storms bordered on four points by inhospitable rocks that have dashed many a ship to splinters. From this damned region come their minionsβ€”bloodthirsty pirates, horrors from the depths, and ghost ships filled with damned crews. No living being is safe as long as the π‘†π‘’π‘Ž π»π‘Žπ‘”π‘  and their minions prowl the Thousand Isles. A vague prophecy says a stranger will one day defeat them, but as yet, few have even tried.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Mic is required, a webcam is optional but highly recommended. I will always have a webcam on so you can see what I'm doing and for anything I might want to roleplay. We're playing on my self-hosted Foundry server, there will be no registrations or logins required, just drop in and play! Additionally, I will provide LegendKeeper journal (think WorldAnvil) that you can browse to refresh your memory on anything you've previously encountered or common knowledge of the world.

What I provide

I will bring the books, the campaign, the server, the music, the roleplaying, the maps and anything else required for us to have a bloody good time sailing the high seas!

Gameplay details

50 Fathoms is an epic swasbuckling / pirate themed sandbox where every adventure leads to another. I will be open about your options and make suggestions or even dangle tantalizing adventure hooks in front of you, but the choice of where to go will always be yours. Become a daring pirate sailing the seas, salvage goods from the Flotsam sea, or realize the prophecy and put an end to the death-curse.
