Savage Tide Rising

Welcome to Sasserine

Session 1 - March 8, 2008

Sasserine

A renegade elf comes home, returning from the wilds after long years of training in the magical arts. A young human, content in his life as an herbalist, chooses to make a new home in Sasserine – perhaps to continue his studies of sealife, or is it to remain near Senara of Wildwood? Three more elves, connected in ways they cannot imagine, each cover continents and oceans to find their long journeys come together in the bustling seaside port. A lost relic of the War seeks hope for a monastery. Another, alone and imprisoned, seeks only to discover the mysteries of his own origin…

A note, a simple request and generous offer, brings them all together.

Those who twitch the strings of Fate look on.
