Pirates of Devil's Cove (UN-C-739)
At first the men did not realise what had happened, returning to their ship at morning light they set sail for home.
It was not until mid journey that they began to notice changes, they no longer needed sleep, no longer desired food and took no pleasure from their drink. No breath stirred from their body, no blood pumped from their veins. They had become literally 'walking dead'.
Realising the curse must have been placed upon them at their last port, they turned sail to return to the island and force someone to lift the curse.
For over 2 years they searched in vain for their last anchorage. When ever they approached the area where they believed the island to be located they would inexplicably find the tide against them, or a storm would swell preventing them from approaching or a fog would descend to obscure the island from view.
