Freki and Beowulf

Freki McGillivary stranded a while ago on the shores of Tidra. The Tiger and Dragon Chain welcomed him and offered him a new home in one of the caves.

A few days ago he met and captured a boy, who was supposed to be a runaway-slave. We held him on the island  for some days, while Freki and the Chain tried to figure out, whom the boy belongs, as the boy  contradicted himself all the time.
But after Franzi and Kenshi had brought him from the dungeon to a cage in the upper cave to generously grant him some more comfort, they found the cage broken the next day and the boy escaped. You shouldn't rely on a slaveboy's word!
We are all a bit nervous, as we don't know, whom the boy will tell about the island and we fear for the peace and safety of the savages. We are considering adopting measures to prevent danger...

((OOC-note about the rescuer: TP'ing several times on the island and quickly TP'ing out, each time he sees someone on it, then finally taking the chance, when there's noone else on the isle. And then RPing, that he "coincidently" flew with his tarn over the island which was lost and forgotten for 100s of years and then "coincidently" finding his lost boy there, not even taking the challenge to PICKLOCK a door but just "cutting the knots of the cage with his sword"... That's not the best of RPs, I guess. *sighs*  But the RP with Freki and Beowulf was good and nice. Thanks, guys!))

After the flood...

Many things happened in the last weeks... After the flood and the earth-quake there had to be cleaned and repaired a lot on the island. But finally last week Franzi could stand on the top of the cave, look over the island and nod satisfied. The birds started to sing again, the few tajuks that survived the  catastrophe are running in the woods again. And the savage boys crawl out from their hidaways.

Franziskus frowned a bit as he saw, that all their trading goods in their stocks were victim of the flood. Worthless. With a resigned sigh he considers to become a thief or other possibilities to get their values back. On the other side... who needs tarsks on a natural island like this?

re-opening soon

The rebuilding is progressing. We're not only repairing the terraforming but also had some new ideas, so the Isle of Tidra is becoming even prettier then before. We hope, that it will be re-opened this week!

A special

to two very generous donators who donated 10.000 L$ each. It's not (only) about the money, it's also a prove to us, that they like the beauty of the Isle and that our work is appreciated.
