The Soul's Truth
Water’s Edge was once a thriving port city populated by a massively human majority. It was a hub of trade, drink, and all the earthly pleasures a sailor could want. Large wooden buildings were erected and fountains were built, and all was beautiful.
About 5 years ago the blight came. Brought from over seas by sailors, it quickly spread to most of this continent wiping out the human population for hundreds of miles in any direction. This disease was so fatal that it managed to touch the lives of some nearby populations of the Llenea, Sydh, and Clan barbarians as well. Some say it was a curse, others say just a mere set of coincidences, and still others say the beginning of a new era free of the human cancer.
What is known is that humans no longer travel to this side of the continent for fear that the curse still lurks there, and will continue to kill any humans who try to re-inhabit the area. Since the blight struck Water’s Edge has been as a ghost town, it’s main business destroyed by the spirits of those who died here. They hold pirates and sailors accountable and as a result none have been able to spend any extended time in the city since without being harassed and threatened by the restless dead who still dwell in their nightmare. Some say they have even seen a new monster in the waters off the coast nearby that devours ships and sailors before they can even touch the shore.
