Mythology of the Seven Seas

The Fate of Atlantis

Far east of the Pearl Sea, in the shadow of the home of the East Wind, was the marvelous metropolis of Atlantis. Ashanti had gifted them with more good earth that is in all the Shimmering Sea. The soil brought forth incredible wealth of vegetables and livestock. Zephyr placed them under the care of the East Wind, and the people of Atlantis paid great homage. This so impressed the East Wind that he guarded their ships where ever they sailed and taught them the secrets of capturing the wind so that they could make the largest sailing vessels ever seen. The Atlanteans used this knowledge to spread there wealth across the eastern seas. This pleased the East Wind. The trade brought the Atlanteans yet more wealth. And with that the Atlanteans developed science and magic such that they could grow independent from the gods. Their advancement and independence still further pleased the East Wind.

Others, Stygia, Mistress of the Seven Seas, was not pleased by this. All the gold and wealth of the Atlanteans was born on the backs of her sea and yet she was not offered any. All that came to her was what fell out of the ships during the storms that so seldom occurred under the watchful eye of the East Wind. Ashanti saw Stygia grow jealous of the wealth of the Atlantis and knew what horrors Stygia could bring upon the mortals there. Ashanti did not wish to see it. So she shook the earth so as to remind them of the power of the gods, where their place was and that they should honor the gods.

The violence of the earthquake was so intense that many Atlanteans called out to Zephyr to save them. Zephyr was not pleased that Ashanti would mettle with a city under his protection. He wished the Atlanteans to live free of the oppression of the gods. Thus he had the winds play a song to lull the Earth Mother to rest away from violence. He then had the East Wind blow the fear from the hearts of the Atlanteans. Seeing that things were restored he returned to the Crossroads.

Now this series of events sat no better with Stygia than before, the Atlanteans grew more independent and showed no fear of her might at all. This would not stand. As soon as Ashanti was asleep and Zephyr was distracted by the happenings at the Crossroads, she went about her dark business. She began to raise the sea over all the earth of Atlantis, dragging the city down into the depths of the sea. The East Wind saw the rising water and tried to blow it out to sea, but the wind had little effect against the rising tide. The resulting wind was so strong that it tore every sail in the eastern seas.

As the people began to cry-out the East Wind carried their message to Zephyr, who knew that only Invincible Hyperion could burn Atlantis out of Stygia's grip. Hyperion was at the Azer Forge which was as far from the Crossroads as they were from the eastern seas, but something must be done for the pride of the East Wind so they set out immediately. When they arrived at the Forge, Hyperion was hard at work smithing new islands for the Blazing Sea. Beating black ferrous rock into flaming domes, to cool in the sea. Now Hyperion had been long at work, but even he was not fully unaware of distant Atlantis. The Solar Eagle had told him of their mighty empire. He saw little reason to leave the Forge for prideful fools, more islands could be made. The Lord of the East Wind told Hyperion of their resourcefulness and the things they had created and he was intrigued. He was told of their fair treatment of one another and how the shared the wealth of their land with all of the eastern seas and his heart was turned.

He flew to the city as fast as the Sun could carry him. He struck the sea with his fiery hammer and boiled off the invading flood water, but it was too late. Atlantis was now only a city of the dead. Hyperion saw no further point in effort and left the remains of the city to be reclaimed by the sea. Hyperion told Stygia he would fight no further for her prize, but with it she must keep the dead, and use it as a city for the dead. She agreed to the fire gods terms. Now Ashati had been awakened by the sounds of Hyperion's hammer. She saw what had become of Atlantis, that Stygia had gotten her gold and her revenge. This saddened Ashanti and she shed a single tear. Her hope that this would show Zephyr the errors of his ways. The tear encircled Atlantis forming the Hidden Sea and Zephyr displeased with the entire outcome commanded that no wind would ever bless this sea, so Stygia would need to ferry the dead by hand. This was fine with Stygia too. She gather her wealth and moved into the greatest palace in all of Atlantis with the dead of all who have ever lived to serve her.
