Underworld Dreams

By:

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world

Oscar Wilde

The underworld is an ever present phenomenon. I do not refer to the metaphorical realm of the dead, or the hidden milieu in which the vampires and the werewolves play out their terrible battles. I speak of the layer of society that lurks beneath the facade of law abiding citizens, that dark and visceral realm of the rogue, the criminal, the street thug and the murderer.

This submission serves as a hub for general thiefdom and roguery. Share ideas, links, so on and so forth. More material to be forthcoming.

Philosophically speaking, crime is a rarely welcome, but natural supplement to an organized society. Where there is law, there is crime as well, and it cannot...

Hey, where's my purse!


(Psst, the Rogue freetext is so much more popular than Thief. Why not change to the good stuff, my friend? And I can offer you the best price on the market... so what do you say?)

Quool's Tide

       By: Murometz

Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.

Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.

Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!

Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
