the waters East of the New Worlde ran Red with the Blood of Twelve Score and Five French Protestants. And there the tale forks. Along one path the Spanish colonized La Florida and the French blood dissipated into the waves and the ghosts of slain sailors haunted the Coast for Four Hundred Years.

And along the other, the blood tainted the water, which turned black, bleak, and brackish, and the Gloaming Tide stretched across the Earth. The Black Water – Ancient Curse – poisoned the Worlde.
