The Submerged Museum
During the month of Harvesting, 2998 E.Alz, a massive flood destroyed the fisher town of Deep Cue Garn, on the northwest coast of the Thaur Island. For 16 years, the town laid abandoned and rotting, covered by a thin layer of sea salt that prevented any plants from growing on the structures, before it was slowly repopulated after the fall of Goldwaste City during the High Rust. However, one of the buildings suffered a particular destiny that allowed it to be reclaimed by nature despite the salt: An old wooden building that served as a small museum for the town, where both art pieces from the town's inhabitants and historically significative items were stored, was lifted from the ground by the water, and dragged back into the sea a short distance from the coast, where it sank leaving just bits of the roof above the surface during low tides. Endelers can usually be seen perching lazily at the top of the roof to get some sunlight, before preparing to try to get through the door and windows to get a meal out of the smaller creatures that call the building their home. While losing their art and historical pieces was a hit to the townsfolk' cultural identity, and the flood was a terrible tragedy, after the town was repopulated on recent years the inhabitants grew fond of the sighting of this structure that they now call the Submerged Museum, which sometimes the few waterland silkies from the town attempt to explore and, in rare occasions, bring back some of the items trapped in there. However, for most of the items there is a certain level of agreement that they are now a part of the sea and should stay where they are, filled with new life.
