I couldn't resist.
also holy shit sabrina flashbacks Can I nab Jessica Parker Kennedy as a FC, please?
I will go right ahead and put her down for you!
As a profession - is it possible for my character to dabble in medical herbs? Maybe she has a different sort of drug she sells under the table?
That's definitely possible.
I think Undine is doing an apothecary owner, but don't see why we couldn't have another character dabbling in a similar field, especially if she has different sorts of drugs to sell under the table.
This vaguely reminds me of the world Pandemia from Dave Duncan's "A Man of His Word" series. Particularly the isle of Durthing from the novel "Perilous Seas." The Skolsung in particular remind me of the Jotun/Nordland raiders from that series.
Anyway, color me interested (the color interested is a hot reddish salmon by the way). Pending a decent character concept that hasn't already been taken (my first few ideas are covered by characters I found in the approved character thread, so I'm still thinking.)
edit: with a concept.
I'm thinking maybe playing a native girl, a slave but only technically, as her whole village and all the people in it are owned by someone that takes little interest in the holding. They live off the sea - fishing and pearl-diving mostly. With salvage and beach-combing as secondary sources of income. They might also be wreckers - people that lure ships into treacherous waters to wreck so that they can salvage them later. Though no one in the village profits at more than subsistence level from either the pearls or the salvage work - all the profits go to the master/owner. Or at least to the factotum that administers the village for him.
The village is locally but not well known as the go-to place for undersea exploration/salvage, as they can dive to amazing depths and stay under for quite some time.
Is such an owned village of indigenous locals something that might exist on the island? or on one of the tiny unmapped islands nearby? If the concept fits, I'll work more on the character
Sounds like a rather interesting character and culture!
If she is from one of the native groups on the island itself, I would have to say no, just because it's been established that the capturing of natives on the island is somewhat illegal, as it helps to protect the alliance between the villagers and inhabitants, and the indigenous people.
Now, if she was taken from, say, a smaller, nearby island, or even from one of the Shattered Islands, that would be more than acceptable.
I haven't heard of that series before. I'll definitely have to check it out.
