The brief history of Sacris Fishersson, A.B.S. 

Growing up in the fisherman’s village of Tront was not exactly an adventurers dream. But for the simple folk that lived there, life was good. There was ample food for all seasons in the many fish that lived in the seas. There were weekly festivals in the town square where everyone gathered to celebrate their good fortunes. For those in hard times, the people of Tront were always willing to lend a hand to those in need. They had all they needed, and wanted for very little. 

Sacris Fishersson was no different than any of the people of Tront. He grew up the 5th child of Aldens and Kalida into a life of fishing. He and his brothers (Kews, Donas and Sqos) went to sea with their father before first lyte every morning, and came back at last lyte every evening, their nets brimming with the seas goodness. His mother and sisters (Kala, Mina, Aurennia and Brunia) would then clean and process the fish for cooking and drying. Life had not changed for Sacris in the 12 years he had been born. 

Then one day, a large sailing vessel came to Tront to trade. Her name was the Waverider, and she was the biggest ship Sacris had ever seen. With 3 masts and a crew of 30, it larger than even the largest vessel in all of Tront. Sacris went to his father and asked to be part of the crew of the Waverider. He knew as soon as he saw it that sailing on this vessel was what he was born to do. His father could see his sons face that he would probably leave with them anyway as a stowaway, so he gave consent and went to the captain. 

The Waverider captain happened to have use for an able bodied fisherman, as the waters in Southern Golgotha were teeming with fish, and as he put it: “The ‘lubbers always pay top dollar for a fish!” So he went to work with the crew of the Waverider as their fisherman. The crew was sharp, and he taught them many different techniques on how to get the fish they wanted. Since they were able to get their fish on their own, Sacris turned his attention to the topsman. He was fascinated with the way these men would scuttle around the masts, rigging the sails. He asked the captain if he could apprentice with them, and the captain agreed. Sacris spent many weeks tottering on the masts, repairing sailcloth and rigging. It was better than he had ever dreamed. 

One day in port, and old wizard was brought aboard the Waverider. The old man set sail with them that day, and when the winds had died down to nearly a crawl, Sacris and the Master of the Tops went above to change the rigging to get the wind. As they were changing, the old wizard spoke a few words, raised his hand and the wind that blew up nearly knocked them from the yardarm. 

Sacris immediately went to the wizard and asked him how he’d done this. Magic was not generally known on Tront, apart from the few cantrips the witches used to light candles. They certainly knew nothing that would be as remotely useful as summoning the wind! Sacris asked the old wizard if he could teach him how to summon the winds and clam the seas. The wizard took him on as his apprentice, and began to teach him the art of magic. Sacris learned the early lessons quickly, and found many useful spells in the wizards old book. He shocked the Master of the Tops when he ran up the mizzen mast without using his hands at climb at all. He also learned how to magically mend sailcloth, and could do repairs in a tenth the time it took the other topsman. 

Sacris proved his worth again on the Waverider, and the crew was as grateful as the captain. Sacris had enabled them to double their profits and hadn’t ever asked to be rewarded for it. That crew made Sacris an Able Bodied Seaman, which meant that Sacris could now get employment at any harbor in any land. The captain proudly handed him his ABS papers. But that same day, the old wizard couldn’t be waked from his sleep belowdecks. Sacris went to see him, but the old man had passed on. Sacris was sad for the loss, but he was sadder still for his lessons had ended. He’d now have to seek out another teacher, someone who could show him how to bring the wind and send away the rains. 

And once he learned, he’d return to Tront and show the village people, and allow them to be truly free.
