Chapter 1: The Deluge
15th Abadius 4716 AR - Desperation Bay
The Kaava Cutter's keel cuts through the crystalline waters of Desperation Bay in a cloudy day. The Sargavan naval vessel has left Port Freedom with the first rays of the day. As each month, the Kaava Cutter has initiated its detour from its weekly service between Eleder and Port Freedom to visit Sargava's southernmost and newest colony, Pridon's Hearth.
Even after the day off at Port Freedom most of the passage in the vessel come from Sargava's capital, but there are a few individuals that boarded at the smaller port. From here on the rules of civilization become fuzzy while the unmerciful laws of wild nature dictate sentence. There is no other right in Sargava's frontier but that one to fight for survival and progress.
Aside from you, at least another twelve passengers travel in the Kaava Cutter, and most of that people are indentured laborers traveling with a minor noble from Sargava's capital called Gallio Menius. It was difficult to ignore the man as his servants loaded and moved around boxes and farming equipment to the dismay and frustration of the ship captain.
As the morning progresses you decide to check the dinning room below decks, where you have heard the cooker serves moonshine in preparation for lunch time. As you all arrive, you find out the only other person in the dinning room is a Mwangi, a dark skinned and short woman, with a slender muscular frame and wiry black hair. She is dressed in simple clothing made from animal hides and overtly ignores you while she drinks from a stained wooden cup.
You hear up the boots of someone descending from the opposite stairs, and when you turn to check, you find out some of the other passengers are coming downstairs to gather around the table. Perhaps this might be a good moment to introduce yourself and get to know each other, after all, it is probable they will soon be your neighbors and fight alongside with you to build a future in this remote and little piece of Golarion.
