The Beginning of War
(As Told by Isca)
I gaze out to the misty skies,
Across the widespread seas,
Only to feel vast emptiness
I glide into the ocean deep,
Where darkened shadows linger,
The world above me shines the light,
I drift within the silent waves,
Breaking upon the shore;
Alone, I am, for all to come,
I swim across the shadowed seas,
Where darkness falls upon
The dimming light traced in my heart
On seas rough, grey and stormy,
When the mists swirl around,
You may not hear it coming,
For it sails without sound.
You will not hear the breaking
Of the waves 'gainst its sides,
As its blackened hull passes
Silently through the tides.
In the dark, you won't see it,
Nor its crew of sea-scum,
Until moonlight reveals all,
And you cry, "It has come!"
The fearsome Revenge,
With all its cannons ablaze,
You prayed never to meet it
In your seafaring days.
Scarblade stands at the helm,
His smile cold in the light,
But he looks not at you,
So you may yet last the night.
As the waves part before him,
He calls, "Take her down!"
The ship sinks below the waves,
Where he surely must drown.
But if you could still see him,
Your face would turn pale,
For he can breathe underwater,
And to Maraqua he sails!
The troops were placed; the sides were set;
The battle-lines were drawn.
The two opposing forces were met
By the light of a sickly dawn.
And Scarblade rallied his pirate crew
With a tale of gold and plunder;
A shout went up; the tensions grew
To the sound of approaching thunder.
And Kelpbeard in the depths below
Urged on the Maractite mob:
"Our goals are clear! Our freedom dear!
Let every pet do their job!"
And somewhere in the murky sea,
Two sisters huddled close;
They needed no visions to prophesize
The upcoming clash of the foes.
And now the rain begins to fall
And now the clouds roll in;
And now approaches a fearsome squall
With a crashing, cacophonous din.
As they all converge at the chaos' heart,
And the warring sides grow near;
As the wind screams fit to tear ships apart--
Take cover! The storm is here!
The Invasion of Maraqua, A Prologue
Kelpbeard rules Maraqua in its rebirth,
He must face enemies great and strong,
For though his kingdom is built in secret,
To think it is safe is so very wrong.
Into the water dives the Revenge,
And Scarblade readies for his assault,
Isca and Caylis are tossed out of their homes,
And it seems to the King that Garin is at fault!
"No one should venture to the surface,
For the surface folk bring nothing but trouble,
A pirate assault is coming to Maraqua,
Prepare for war and on the double!"
Swords of steel with Maractite clash,
As an epic battle rages below the sea,
Will it be the pirates or the good Maraquan folk
Who will in the end claim victory?
Will the magnificent kingdom under the ocean
Be once again ruined and left to the dead?
Or shall Kelpbeard's forces finally prevail?
We shall all wait and see what lies ahead!
To Battle on the Sea
In the air hangs tension so thick
You could cut it with a knife.
Beneath the tranquil surface
Of the ocean, there is strife.
The men of Scurvy Island report
Faithfully to Captain Scarblade.
Amongst them are many amateurs,
And the finest of their trade.
With shiny weapons and armors,
The soldiers of Maraqua gleam.
The thought of their new city
Is their only hope, it might seem.
But within each Maraquan soldier's heart,
A noble flame burns bright.
Despite the fear of land-dwellers
They will not go without a fight.
War looms on the dark horizon,
Bringing with it an epic story
Of struggle, valiance, and great greed,
But who will claim victory?
