    Siren's Song

    "Storms swell over the Inniro Archipelago. 120 miles southwest of the Umbral Coast, deep into the Ouryan Sea a sizable fishing vessel, The Muscle, is trapped by these sudden onset winds and storms. The waves batter their sides, their nets tangle into a mess, one man falls overboard, and is lost to the black waters that swarm the ship. Captain Voltair rallies his men, calls out to them to not fear the depths. A small swell such as this could not sink this vessel. The men attempt to pull their nets up, bring down the sails to prevent ripping, all seemingly in vain as the typhoon beats down on them like a fist from the gods. As the men are looking over the side for their lost comrade, they all speak of horrors circling below. Masses of tentacles, longer than the entire ship, crabs reaching up with claws from the murky depths, one is even almost compelled to jump ship to embrace a siren’s song before being restrained by his comrades. The men are tired, their faces sting from the rain being shot down onto them. One man runs to the captain and yells something into his ear, the words being lost to the rest of the men from the gale force winds deafening them. The captain takes a deep breath and announces, “Rocks off the bow! Prepare to swim!”
