Gartheia - the flower-pot Island

By:

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.

Fear the Gods

       By: manfred

Culture/Religion: based on fear and respect. Gods are very dangerous creatures, sometimes friendly, often not. Temples are the way to make contact with them... if not easier, then at least more concentrated in one place. Were it not for the temples, gods could be running amok among the people. Therefore, mortals have to keep the gods close to temples, entertained and worshipped. It doesn't make the bad ones any friendlier, though (and is no guarantee some won't go on trips now and then). Still, there have to be priests that are hardy men, able to survive the rigours of their position, get a sufficient number of worshippers to make the gods feel important enough, and mediate the contact between mortals and immortals.
