A much more somber and thoughtful piece then I was expecting, and certainly memorable. I'm not sure it's a place most typical greedy/ goal driven PC's would be satisfied with finally finding. (given there's no treasure or other tangible rewards to be gained from the place and no great "villain" to overcome.)
Nonetheless, for those looking for a memorable legend, and a equally memorable location, they would be hard pressed to find one more so.
A bit more detail about the rumor of "You will not live to see the New Moon after witnessing its beauty." might be a worthy enhancement. I can feel there is potential for a surprising climax here with the PC's being attacked by whales, or some type of water elemental near the beginning of the new moon, seeking to return them to the watery grave as well.

hmmm....this might be difficult to explain properly. We wanted to minimize the demon influence and maximize the strenghth of human WILL! Ayyosha's will. An exaggerated take on what the human spirit is capable of, when faced with ultimate desperation and hopelessness, so to speak. Ayyosha achieved a new state of being due to some unknown universal force. The demon was added to make this easier to digest as an rp concept. Of course there is resistence to the One True Faith! Stay tuned! There are many that twist the nebulous ideas for their own design. Thats the OTF's beauty. Easily altered and recalibrated. See Earl Garmon Cabbagestalk in Qacha's Neck to name one such miscreant. And your damn right! It aint easy taking over the world! Passively-aggresively or otherwise. I'm sure Scras will have his own take. Thats the pleasure of working with him! We dont step on each other's toes
