Mare Necrosia by Rob Morganbesser (Genre: Living Dead)
The vessel bobbing on the waves had once been a dragon ship, feared throughout Europa. Now it was barely afloat. The figure head was damaged; burned to the point where if it had a dragon head on it, that image was gone. The main sail was tattered and torn; just enough remained to flutter in the breeze. The tide, coming in brought the ship to where it grounded on a beach of small pebbles, many of them perfect for a sling. A few children, not old enough for chores, ran toward the ship but none were tall enough to look over the freeboard.
No shields were arraigned on the damaged hull, nor were any oars there. From within the ship came a moaning sound, that of a man in pain. Panicked, the children ran off to their village, but the arrival of the ship had not gone unnoticed.
