BEASTS OF THE EARLY SEA

The apprentice asked me what was the most ravenous creature I faced during my wandering. Such an amusing question, aye! His pristine curiosity reminded me the innocence of youth, as a distant reverberance of my aged spirit. I hope that his cautious excitement for the unknown will not vanish by time, because it is one of the keys to reach a proper wealth.

Many moons ago I visited the golden shores of the Early Sea, an extended and savage barrier of sand that separates people from the monsters. In front of me, a boundless surface of dark water was shimmering under the gentle lights of the evening. From the depths of that touching beauty, vicious beasts were manifesting their gluttony with guttural screams.

As the myth reveals, at the beginning of time our world was completely submerged. Under the abysses, the Markets were wilder than nowadays, and the prehistorical inhabitants of the Blocklands were forced into a bloody existence according to the law of the richest.

After a while, the greediest predators enlarged their dimensions beyond excess, and became whales. Unable to transfer on the emerged lands, these ancient animals remained confined into the rests of their primordial broth, the Early Sea, together with their blind hunger.

Attracted by my money bags, a young exemplary confused me with a wealthy adventurer, and then it started to yell me its challenge, with voracious madness. Later, the beast discovered the magnitude of its fault, since offending a blessed Cryptodruid has only one outcome. The defunct horror sank into the cold waters, after being hacked in pieces and deprived of its whole balances.
