Depraved locals shuffle through the street. Choppy waves assail the docks. Strangely absent are the sounds of boats and the passage of sailors, though an abandoned, decaying rowboat is bumping lazily against the dock it was tied to. Starving seagulls caw their mournful woes as they search the fishless waters. Shops shutter their windows and bar their doors when outsiders approach. Locals whisper gutteral comments to eachother, threatening outsiders with harsh glares and perhaps more sinister threats. A mad drunk weaves through the cobbled streets. The wind off the ocean is mournful, carrying a corrosive sea spray that speeds the town's decay. Every now and then, just on the edge of hearing, something can be heard shuffling about in the upper floors and basements of the dilapidated tenements.
