LitFest Tour Monday May 4th 2020: Siren’s Lore

The Company of Faire Folk rides out! Or walks, flies or (consults notes) swims as is your preference. Our Tour today takes us to the beautiful and mysterious region of Siren’s Lore, designed by Syn Beresford.

A lost city of secrets, mystery, and magical ruined beauty. Overgrown ruins hold tight the secrets of sea deities past. We survived the fall, and this is our home. Look for us just below the surface, swimming against the continuous, ever changing tides of Sirens Lore.

Things to See:

Basalt columns and buildings in decay, newer structures within the shells of what stood before.
The boards you walk upon are warm but worryingly soft. There is new growth, but the plants rise from old decaying versions of themselves. The jungle presses in towards the sea as the mangroves flourish.

Hidden Secrets:

Which unlucky ship foundered here? Did her crew join those here or did they lose their lives as the ship was plundered?

Things to Ponder:

Is the statue of the Siren, or was it plunder from some passing ship?
The statues are clean and polished. Are they representations of worshipped Gods?
