a monthly saga
posted on the 7th of each month - until the narwal is found
The search continues for the narwal and stolen treasure...
The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed body of water on Earth by area, variously classed as the world's largest lake or a full-fledged sea.
The Caspian Sea holds great numbers of sturgeon, which yield eggs that are processed into caviar. -per wikipedia
The infamous Narwal lowers the spyglass with a sigh of relief... for now. He does not see signs of the Rusty Dagger but he knows she's close. She continues to follow him relentlessly and may well catch him in the seventh sea... if he is not careful.
The captain of the Rusty Dagger seeks him obsessively.
The curse of the gem drives her.
She is mad.
Mad for the gem.
Mad for him.
But the Narwal knows that she can have neither until the curse is broken.
It has been his passion this past six months to find a way to free her.
Free her soul.
Farewell to the Balclutha this day. When the Narwal disembarks, he will be bound for the Caspian Sea.
There is a portal there that leads to the Iron Seas which holds the answer he seeks.
Meanwhile exhaustion finally catchs up with Captain Vix. She catnaps in a hammock below top deck as the crew scurry about per usual. All the while, keeping an eye out for the Balclutha.

The English Captain of the “Medusa’s Lair” pirate ship gets killed in battle leaving his only daughter “Mar” with the dilemma of taking the Captain title. The crew does not seem to accept her as a Captain because she is a young female.
What the crew does not know is that she was attacked by a vampire on the night of her 22nd birthday and she is now a pirate vampire. After a demonstration of vampire power the crew does not dare to question her abilities and start calling her Captain right away.
Mar is going to find true love, learn charity and meet Yargo the waterling who was once a warlock during her sailing adventures
