WEFOUNDThe Serpent Sea (The Books of the Raksura)


A  sea serpent was a mythical , snake or dragon like animal that seafaring lore would describe as a giant green monster with yellow eyes that lived in the oceans, and particularly said to appear during violent storms.

The Serpiente de Muerta was a blue sea serpent that was covered with fish-like fins and breathed blue fire, which Jack Sparrow claimed he had encountered on Isla de Muerta . 

The crew of the Black Pearl had also encountered a giant serpent that was mentioned in the lore of the game Snake Eyes the very next day after they had played the game. The serpent approached the ship and swallowed the pirate Mary Bonny , who later appeared alive on a remote deserted island.

The word “California” evokes different images in people’s minds, depending on when and where you grew up and how much television you watch. You might envision sun drenched beaches, filled with bursting bikinis and beefcake. A wonderland where everyone surfs and is in the same yoga class as some celebrity.

If you’ve had to take a business trip to Los Angeles, you might envision a traffic ridden sprawl of fake paradise that vomits forth suburbs, strip malls and bad chain restaurants. A pinnacle of “Generica” that continues to spread like an epidemic. If you watch a lot of recent right wing news you might picture a post apocalyptic war zone overrun with Mexican invaders who crave the flesh of white children.

The reality is different and nuanced. Yes, California is filled with beautiful people, or at least people preoccupied with physical appearance. There are thousands of extremely talented people there, most of whom will never be noticed. A fleeting glance at modern entertainment reminds one that stardom and talent often have little to do with each other.
