United Pride

As the 2nd Era came to a close, Brind-Amor once again turned its sights toward exploration. Much as the Champions of Elon boarded the Chaytan and began the first trek around Brind-Amor, the Brind Amor Confederacy turned their eyes to the Great Sea and imagined what lies out there.

The United Pride was a galleon with cannons and a top-notch crew that set sail on a 5-year mission of exploration in Year 19 of the Red Comet.

Transition from 2nd to 3rd Era – The officers and crew was selected for this mission from the results of the most recent Tests of Reshk in Elon, and they trained for the next three years before leaving. The Council of Elders Council of Eldersbegan to get worried as the five-year anniversary of their departure passed. The became fearful at the 6-year mark and immediately began construction of another galleon to explore and discover what happened to the United Pride. Esbjorn Broske was essential in pushing this project forward. The Sea Word would be commissioned soon after the next Tests of Reshk and they will leave later in Year 26 of the Red Comet.

Session #8 (3rd Era) – As the Sea Word sailed to Geargrind Island they learned that the United Pride did stop by here and that their crew had extensive talks with a local researcher named Elza Crinkletoes. Also they learned that they retrieved some flora samples for Engineer Glinwhiz from nearby Prewth Island. Also, they recovered a flintlock that belonged to the captain of quartermaster of the United Pride off of a pirate captain named Chaza who commanded the Soaring Waves who was a part of the Tempest Swarm.

Session #9 (3rd Era) – From Elza Crinkletoes they learned more about the United Pride. She worked with them a great deal, especially Captain Ravenclaw and Quartermaster Yi. They were in the Styrc Isles only a short time. They helped Engineer Glinwhiz with a small sample of trees and plants from some of the other islands, and most notable were the cottonwood trees of Prewth. Elza said she mostly worked with them on mapping the islands since she had done a good deal of research on each of them. One stop that stood out was on the rocky island of Ston Cay in the town of Hillford. A elf wizard named Glynxidor fell in love with a local there and finally the captain agreed to let him go off the ship. Apparently this upset some of the crew members, but as Elza pointed out, what could the captain do?

Session #12 (3rd Era) – The Sea Word caught up with Glynxidor but discovered him to have gone mad with the death of his beloved Ellenthel. He reanimated her as a flesh golem and the Senior Officers were forced to kill them both. Now the Sea Word sails for the Decius Empire, as did the United Pride did some seven years ago.

Session #13 (3rd Era) – The senior officers of the Sea Word learned from a dwarven merchant in Basti that the United Pride used to ship goods for him, but disappeared about a year ago.

Session #14 (3rd Era) – The crew of the Sea Word finally found what was left of the United Pride when they attended the King of the Hill Tournament in Centum Treyopolis. The fought along side Captain Saeryn Ravenclaw and Quatermaster Yi and won their freedom. After this, Captain Jaffe handed over controls of the Sea Word to Captain Ravenclaw while he dealt with the consequences of the Slave Branding.

Session #15 (3rd Era) – Following up on a tip, the Sea Word headed to the town of Scalaycium in search of a handful of crewmen from the United Pride. They learned that the crewmen tried to help the people of Scalaycium and investigated a ruined temple in the marsh, but were killed by the necrotic beings that inhabit the ruins.
