“Ive always been in awe of the sea. Something so big, so powerful, and yet at times, gentle. It is just as much home to us as our island. We have lived by it, and we have died by it. But now, things have changed. I look out over it even now, its not the same anymore. Today we travel across our waters…, no, not our waters anymore. ….Today we travel over these waters to the homeland. But not quite our home.
We are who survived, we with no home. We shall wander for a time.
But for now, we sail. This ship is much larger than my peoples’, and it is strange. I can feel it in the woodwork, in the lines and sails. These are strange people too, but for now we will trust them. What more can we do?
I see Brice from time to time, he looks well for what he has been through. He has awakened. He will go on to do great things, for our world has changed and him with it. More than us by any means.
Shawn, I can hear him. Still speaking to the survivors, his word brings with it a calm, like the morning breeze. A holy man my father would call him. I did not trust him at first, but then my father told me ‘His ways and our own are not as different as you think, my son.’ My father was right, I have come to value Shawn’s insight and reason.
I think Ill wait here a while more, the sea is calmer now. Not for too long of course, I can already smell the ale, Tsokin is headed my way, or maybe Slanish. The half-orcs. They are just as out of place as I am. Good lads, never a dull moment.
Time to go it would seem, my friends are waiting, but I cant help but wonder what will become of us.
We who survived."
