Gartheia - the flower-pot Island


Gartheia - the flower-pot Island

Gartheia - the flower-pot Island

Gartheia is one of the more secure pirate islands in the south sea.  It’s shape is similar to an immense flower pot - there are no decent ports or harbors around the circumferance of the island as the stone cliffs overhang the waters lower then mast-height.  In order to gain access to the higher parts of the island requires similar strategies to scaling a castle wall, with the disadvantages of having to do it from a rocking ship.

The pirates of the island have built, at great difficulty, a set of hoists and derricks to load and unload their ships.  There are even plans to build one large enough to lift smaller ships completely out of the water, but these are still just plans.

Once on the upper portion of the island, it appears similar to many other islands in the region, albiet rocky.

The island itself is a massive block of sandstone which is gradually rising from the ocean due to geological forces.  The actions of tides and normal waves are eroding the sides of the island as it rises.

A fragment of letter drifts down to the street. You catch it, and unfold the charred edges.

Looking up from the fragmented text you glance around at the rooftops. There. A minute snowfall of scraps of letters is cascading from the chimney of a half-timbered house nearby.
