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.

Boots Of Ennui

       By: Murometz

These magical boots empower the wearer with several abilities at once. Wondrous leaping, water-walking, and even flying! Yet the boots possess an insidious curse upon them as well. A deep and almost unfathomable (by others) feeling of listlessness, boredom, and even apathy affects the boots' wearer at all times whenever they are donned. Magic will not dispel the effects.

And so while the wearer of the boots can perform great feats of action during combat or at other opportune times and key moments, they'll never really want to do so, complaining "Meh, what's the point of it all anyway?" or "I would fly up and save us all guys, but sigh, maybe uhm, soonish, mkay? Bit bored by this whole burning tower at the moment."

Naturally the boots wearer's fellow PCs will grow quickly frustrated with this arrangement. There have been numerous occasions when one angry PC literally tears off the boots from his companion's feet in anger, and dons them in turn, only to immediately suffer from the same effects.

The solution lies in constantly "motivating" the boots' wearer with successful rolls, involving threats, flattery, fiery speeches, or even bribery.
