The Brooklyn Sound

The Brooklyn Sound

Where the Sound begins is at least as great a mystery as where it ends. At one time the Brooklyn Sound flowed through the caverns of the Underworld at random. At times it rushed with the brutality of a flash flood, yet emptied into caves where it was little more than a trickle. Captain Uridian and his legendary vessel, The Albatross, seem to have changed that. The very action of charting most of the Sound seemed to lock the river into its course, and its path is now, somewhat, predictable. It flows through much of the Underworld, but it takes a special vessel to follow its course, for at certain points it flows upwards.

Several of the caverns that the Sound flows through have taken on bizarre tonal qualities. The sounds of the flowing river bounce off stalactites and back at the water causing odd reverberations. Most ship crews have taken to putting wax stoppers in their ears to block out the sounds. Those that haven’t tend to go insane. Many of those maddened by the river claim it was speaking to them. Most would like to dismiss such talk, but the River Crazies do seem to know the strangest things, and more than a few secrets that others thought were kept…
