The mainland south of Skara Brae, known to
locals as Corwyn, the City of Virtue, was once again subject to the horrors of
the late pirate captain Martin Bloodeye and his undead crew. Bloodeye, recently
thought defeated, returned to Corwyn with one final hunt for his "Bloodeye
Bloodeye first came to public attention as the result of nearby archaeological
digs that had disturbed the local dead. Two men from the Museum of Vesper had
come into the area seeking the infamous Bloodeye's last known treasure,
including his infamous "Bloodeye Cutlass." Seamus and Simon Finlay,
the relic hunters from Vesper, recovered this artifact but dug up more than they
anticipated: Martin Bloodeye and his crew.
Several instances were reported in the days that followed of Bloodeye leading
his undead pirate crew as they rose up and hunted for the "stolen"
cutlass. Vigilant local defenders beat back the hordes of evil again and again,
and in time they were rewarded with the destruction of the skeleton named Martin
Bloodeye. However, this did not stop the resilient captain.
While a group of defenders had gone to Vesper, seeking the aid of the Finlays,
Captain Bloodeye somehow reformed his spirit into something resembling a human
body. He once again led his minions against the Corwynites and any who allied
with them, his forces larger and fiercer than ever before.
The defenders returned with the Finlays, who were able to use the Cutlass
against the undead masses. Bloodeye seemed taken aback and confused that someone
else could wield his weapon. Bloodeye was beaten down in a flurry of attacks,
his body pulverized beyond recognition.
Experts Simon and Seamus Finlay were able to confirm that the pirate and his
crew were finally defeated, and returned the artifact known as Bloodeye's
Cutlass to their Museum.
