The venomous penal colony in the south bay
The house of mankind’s congressional library keeps myriads of books on historical monuments, which include a record on an island that was forbidden and forgotten for centuries.
The record dates back to the ancient time when the kingdom was ruled by a wise king Khuppa, the father of infamous king Kafra. Under Khuppa, the empire prospered. The market was full of rich foods and wines and the capital city’s sprawling streets were filled with laughter and bustling with activity as visitors and merchants from all over the world come to marvel at its high culture and enjoy landmarks.
For decades, King’s command kept the city safe by policing. Sentinels were all over the city to maintain order by arresting all criminals, thieves, and phony alchemists. The capital penitentiary soon became filled with these intractable outlaws. Khuppa had to find a way to make space. He decided to exile these criminals to a far-flung penal colony.
The script writes that the penal colony was decided to be an island located in the South bay. The isle that has long been known by the seamen but was not explored previously due to its isolation from the outside by the cold, strong, tremendous currents of the waters of the south bay. The isle was known to be teeming with rocky terrain, thick fogs, toxic fauna, and thickets of mangroves. Putrid swamps were found all across the untamed island, never welcoming to the outsiders.
Before the vessel transporting the convicts leaves for the island, one of the convicts burglarized the king’s chamber and took the king’s precious world stone.
The ancient script depicts the landing of the convicts was perilous. The band of convicts raised their torches and marched into the murky mangrove forest to find a place to set up their settlement. Their trail didn’t have an exit and their screams heard but soon muted by the spine-chilling howls.
A few days later, king Khuppa discovered stolen world-stone from his safe. Khuppa hurriedly dispatched his king's guards led by lord commander Espen to the island to retrieve the world stone. The isle was an unforgiving place to the knights as it was to the convicts.
Only Espen the lord commander of the kings-guard escaped from the island and came back to the capital, shattered and broken. His account of his experience on the island was quite outlandish. He said, his knights were literally slaughtered by eerie monsters residing in the bogs. He continued to lay out what he has witnessed. Many of his brave soldiers poisoned, haplessly incapacitated by the most venomous reptiles on earth and eaten raw by huge Vodyanoys often risen suddenly from swamps. Ogre tribes ambushed and slain the knights.
Most startling was his illustration of an enormous creature he encountered at the heart of the island. Arrived the central pond, he lowered the glow of his torch’s flame down to the bog, only to descry unbelievable sight. There were shattered livers, jagged veins, tears of fabrics, sunken chest, rotting skulls of the convicts floating all over the toxic dark water.
Maddened by the scene, Espen slowly craned his neck and saw numerous eyes staring down at him. When he lifted the torch, he saw a three-headed dragon coiling over the world-stone stolen from the king’s chamber. This massive creature is later known as “Hydra”. As soon as he realized the situation, he fleed to the shore without turning back. When he reached the shoreline, he could find a canoe and sailed north to the capital.
Khuppa couldn’t help being aghast to what he heard from Espen. Reckoning it would be pointless to attempt to retrieve the world-stone from the savage island, he declared the island as a forbidden territory and completely banned access to the isle. Thereafter, no one ever stepped into the island and the place was lost from peoples’ memory until the ancient document has been found in the congressional library.
When the heroes came back from the mystic forest, there stood the house leader holding the ancient document at his right hand. He mentioned his concern about the world-store hidden in the island being seized by some evil forces. That would jeopardize the entire mankind. He called upon the heroes to go into the island and bring back the precious stone.
A ship has already arrived at the port to transport the heroes to the forbidden island. Heroes, now it is the time to sail to the forbidden island and retrieve the world-stone from the realm of the satanic monsters!
