Okay, a few disclaimers are in order to make sure there are no misunderstandings.
It’s a story that has been on a my mind for a good while now, yet just now have I come around to writing it. It has been inspired by the black metal band Carach Angren©, and specifically by their album “Death Came Through a Phantom Ship”©. I must say that it’s not an original idea of mine, but more of a re-telling of the story they laid out thru their music.
Although it’s the popular mythos for Van Der Decken and the Flying Dutchman, the original narrative and album are property of Carach Angren©. All rights reserved.
For those of you that haven’t listened to the band, I strongly recommend them since they are, well, awesome. You can find out more about them on their official website as well as their Facebook page.
Special thanks to Seregor Dennis Droomers for letting me publish these online and to the band in general for making awesome music.
Cover art is of a marvelous ship, made by Rui Wang at deviantART – go check him out as well. I know the chinese theme does not fit, but it’s cool nonetheless.
All in all, there will be three stories with two parts each:
- The Mariner
- The Captain
- The Ghost
Part one of the Mariner is already live on my Amino, but it will be posted here on Monday 12th of March at 18:00 GMT, with part two the following Monday.
