"Another year," a limp-finned Guardian sighs, "still no Tidelord."

Amid the tangles of the Fishspine Reef lies an unusual scene: part massive archaeological dig, part somber Saturnalia celebration. While Water Flight's expedition to the Outer Ocean lifted the spirits of the Tidelord's abandoned children, it uncovered nothing of his whereabouts, and the Sea soon fell back into a marked gloom. It was only by coincidence that, right before the next year's Wavecrest, an astonishing discovery was made: an ancient city perched next to the Leviathan Trench, its name lost to the time and currents.

Now, this city has become a crossroads for dragons of all sorts-- intrepid adventurers plunge the ruins in search for treasure, while archaeologists pull their scales out at the loss of valuable data; Tidelord-hunters scrape through the sand for any sign of their lost deity, while mourners bemoan their disrespect; locals marvel at the mess this all is, while tourists... do the same. The Wavecrest Saturnalia has never been quite like this.

At least there's not leviathans in these ruins, right?

Right?

Support Water's Dominance push and win cool prizes! OOF only. Open now.

While weather conditions in other Flights (windy, stormy, apocalyptic) may interfere considerably with their archaeological attempts, nobody has it quite as bad as the Water flight, who must excavate entirely underwater... with no magic.

There's no cushy party boat or private island for Water denizens this year: they have to pitch in, same as everyone else. Still, they insist on holding a private raffle. It's custom. It's tradition. What would the Tidelord think if He saw us mix with the land-dwellers? He'd never come back!

The inhabitants of this ancient city, as it turns out, were quite cultured-- it seems like their artwork turns up on every other sandy stone.
