History

Reports of the Vanderboren expedition to the Isle of Dread indicate that unlike the exploits written in the Barbarosa journals, the Vanderborens gained the trust of the natives and traded with them. The Seven Villages (the Olman tribes) assented to giving over control of the 25-square-mile islet of Temute (“the abandoned place”) to the colonists. Temute had been uninhabited for years, the reason is unclear, and the Olman are reluctant to go there.

The Vanderborens set out for the Isle of Dread in 1406 FR/4703 AR (four years ago), negotiated with the Olman for help building the colony, started construction, ran out of metal (because the natives don’t produce any), left Lord Manthalay in charge while they started the return trip to get provisions, lost the ship The Mercurial to a sea monster, took several months to repair the Blue Nixie and then had trouble organizing the third expedition. They had just bought a replacement for The Mercurial and were taking it for a test trip when their son, Vanthus Vanderboren, burnt the ship to the water line, with his parents Larissa and Verik aboard.
