They have been travelling for so long. Trapped in the greenness of the oceans, the blueness of the skies. Assaulted by the saltiness of the air, the coldness of the winds.
Prisoners of their very own dream, with no chance of redeem, are these cursed sailors. Condemned to ride the waves for eternity, to infinity…
A punishment of some sort, for a sin or fault of long time forgotten. Have they gone too far in their passion? Or are they the unlucky victims of some capricious Gods? The answer is held by no living soul.
Do they have the tiniest chance to be forsaken? The slightest hope of ever going home? Will they ever be forgiven? This is a mystery, a secret hold by some deity or maybe the soul of the sea herself.
Mystery among mysteries is the fate of the lost sailors.
