Tempest

Tempest.jpg

The Endless Isles have always been ravaged by great and terrible storms, some natural, some the manifestation of angry spirits. Once the people of the isles were simply forced to cower in their homes, emerging only to sift through the rubble and bury the dead. But a benevolent weather spirit took pity on the people and taught a number of the wisest shamans a ritual that would allow them to bind the most catastrophic storms and save themselves from destruction. The ritual required the storms to be bound into the bodies of newborn babies, who would grow up to be figures of fear and respect in their villages: Tempests.

Tempests are considered holy men and women, keeping the entire community safe through their sacrifice. As they grow older they learn some limited control over the weather, and are instrumental in ensuring good harvests and bringing ships safely into harbor. But however benevolent the Tempest may be, there is always a storm raging inside. The older and more powerful they become, the more difficult it becomes for them to control their emotions, and the more prone they are to outbursts of temper. Eventually most Tempests leave their homes for the good of those they love and live out their days in seclusion.

Tempests can be found across the Endless Isles, and their nature varies accordingly. Galway Tempests are brash and daring, while Grimstad tempests tend to be as cold and merciless as the brutal ice storms of their homeland. The Monsoons of Orlean are slow to rouse but unstoppable when set on a course, and the Sandstorms of Arabi are paragons of roiling, barely-contained rage. Bretony is the only kingdom that has no Tempests (and considers them witches to be burned), and it has caused them their greatest naval disadvantage.
