Legends of the Sea IThis book is about the arrival of The Hungering One… signed by 'Umbra'.After asking Merrick himself, deciphering his drunken journals and speaking to pirates who were there, I believe this is it. This is where they used Merrick's accidental enchanted shanty to summon forth the first Megalodon - The Hungering One! Those pirates avenged poor Merrick's crew, not to mention his legs. But now all of the ancient, deep sharks have awoken…
Legends of the Sea IIThis book is about the origins of the Warsmith… signed by 'Umbra'.I met Salty - a genuine skeletal parrot! He was once a man, but was changed when creating cursed cannonballs from one of Flameheart's cannons. His partner in alchemy was the weaponsmith, Wanda, who forced him to take the brunt of the curse. But she did not escape unscathed. Flameheart's hatred fed her own, until she became the twisted skeleton captain, 'The Warsmith'. She waged a failed war on the Outposts.
Legends of the Sea IIIThis book is about the fate of the Forsaken Shores Alliance… signed by 'Umbra'.When Grace Morrow and Stitcher Jim joined their crews to form The Forsaken Shores Alliance, they travelled to places few pirates had seen. They even reached The Devil's Roar thanks to the Shroudbreaker, but Stitcher Jim was secretly seeking power for his then-master, the Gold Hoarder. He betrayed and killed all of them but Captain Morrow, who survived her poisoning but was trapped in the Roar. A dark tale indeed.
Legends of the Sea IVThis book is about the Festival of the Damned… signed by 'Umbra'.This ways no easy spot to reach! During the Festival of the Damned, pirates would light these beacons with various coloured flames. How incredible that the Ferryman allowed access to the Flames of Fate, which change to reflect how a pirate dies. I'd like to learn more about them… but I'm not rushing to the Ferry of the Damned. What if I don't come back? A chilling prospect.
Legends of the Sea VThis book is about the hunting of Krakens… signed by 'Umbra'.The fogs on the Sea of Thieves are heavy, but were especially bad during a certain year. They seemed to stir up the Krakens and sharks. Perhaps those creatures just saw a chance to prey on lost ships, but the tables soon turned as pirates realised something… Many Krakens and Megalodons eat up valuable loot from the ships they sink. Suddenly, hunting them for goodies became a tempting prospect!
Legends of the Sea VIIThis book is about Duke selling gunpowder to the Trading Companies… signed by 'Umbra'.The skeletons once began hoarding huge amount of gunpowder, known since as 'Black Powder Stashes'. The Trading Companies didn't like that, so Duke of the Bilge Rats saw a chance to make the seas safer while also making a lot of gold. It seems this was Duke's first step towards acquiring the connections and capital needed to launch the Black Market.
Legends of the Sea VIIIThis book is about the theft of the Dark Relics… signed by 'Umbra'.I have found some strange artefacts, which I believe to be what the Order of Souls calls 'Dark Relics'. Many of these arcane objects were stolen from them in an organised effort by the skeletons, though Duke was able to retrieve many. The Dark Relics were later used for terrible deeds, opening windows to other worlds and dispelling powerful curses!
Legends of the Sea IXThis book is about Duke's business and the arrival of the Emporium… signed by 'Umbra'.I've come across strange activity by Duke. It seems he got much of his Black Market stock from these accursed Reaper's Chests. The things he couldn't use - piles of bones, mostly - he sold on as Rag and Bone Crates. Strange what people will do to make their way. These Pirate Emporium folks, for example. Once Gold Hoarders, now working for some outsider. But suck delightful pets they sell!
Legends of the Sea XThis book is about the appearance of the Fort of the Damned… signed by 'Umbra'.Stitcher Jim believes that the appearance of the Fort of the Damned is the result of a ritual using the stolen Dark Relics. Pirates have found that the coloured Flames of Fate can be used to 'wake' the twisted Fort and repel the skeletons seeking to use it. But what's really going on? Such determination to get into our world… but are we stopping them or helping them by waking the Fort?!
