The North Star Guides YouEdit
(Eastern islet, Rum Runner Isle)
Sudds met a young whippersnapper today. Green as leaves, he was. He hadn't even heard of the North Star!
You don't need no spyglass to find her, Sudds told the lad, she's the biggest and brightest friend and she likes to stay put.
Spot the North Star and you'll never need a compass again!
And the boy smiled, and asked Sudds: "What if it's raining?"
Sudds gave the lad a thick ear. Busy, too busy for foolish questions! Gots to reach ol' Plunder by nightfall...
The Little Glimmer FishEdit
(Highest peak, Plunder Valley)
Brave little Glimmer Fish...
He used to swim down here in the water with all of his brothers and sisters, shining in the sun. Sometimes it's not wise to shine too brightly...
Bigger fish came with empty bellies, and their teeth went snicker-snack!
Soon Glimmer Fish was the only one left to guide the ancient ones on their journey here. One brave little light, all alone...
The ancients felt sorry for Glimmer Fish and placed him in the heavens where he could swim in safety. Lucky little fishy!
Now Sudds must swim along too, all the way to the shores named after the sneaky snake...
Snake Gets What He DeservesEdit
(Mainland, Snake Island)
Snake has many voices and likes to play tricks. He coiled along a branch and waited until the Great Warrior was near.
"Help me!" came the Sea Queen's cry, "Won't someone help me, for wicked One-Eye has me by the tail!"
Warrior heard it all. Warrior ran through the trees, not looking up above his head, and whump! There came Singing Snake to coil around his throat.
Snake is cunning, but Warrior is strong! He grabbed at Snake and hurled him up into the stars, where he has lived ever since!
Sudds can't get a good view from here. Needs to sail out to Old Harry's place before daybreak...
The War that Shook the SkyEdit
(Northeast rock, Devil's Ridge)
There was once a great battle that shook the whole heavens, and caused great sadness to Sudds's friends above.
Great Warrior knew that he would have to battle Old Kraken, for she planed to feast on the merfolk and their kin.
To fletch the arrows he would need, Warrior told Proud Eagle to give up eight of his feathers, or they would go to war.
Eagle refused, of course, and tore at Warrior with his sharp talons, but it was no use. Warrior fled with his golden prizes!
He dropped one feather as he fell back to earth, and it's still in the stars! Sudds wants to see it from the moon-shaped isle...
The Binding of the KrakenEdit
(Southwest rocks, Crescent Isle)
Great Warrior took his arrows and went to make war with Kraken, but he had lost a feather along the way.
He thought of Singing Snake and the venom it used to bite, and he tipped each of his arrows with the very same.
The arrows stung the Old Mother and made her sleepy, so that she sank down to the sea bed. Warrior gave out a great cry.
The ancients came, then, with their great chains. Together they bound Kraken rightly to the star above, far out of reach.
The Sea Queen was grateful, for her people were saved, and she promised they would always help those lost at sea.
