1.  Description

Searsport was once a very small human town known for its history of hosting 17 shipyards that built over 200 ships, and supplying the famous sea captains that sailed them. It was also at one point the second largest deep water port in Maine, due to its bustling confluence of shipping, both by land and sea. The location of Searsport had been ideal for early human railroads, wood products, and other development interests, much of which is still present in the town. Many houses have fallen into disrepair without human assistance, so Luperci have taken to salvaging or scavenging goods from human structures rather than rebuilding them. The locals of Searsport, most of which are seadogs -- both novices to the craft and well salted -- live either in their boats, or in Luperci-built ship yards where they work on constructing their own vessels. Despite its small community, Searsport has become a haven to many seadogs, for they are considered savvy shipwrights and are a niche port that is well known among the sailing community.

Searsport rests at the mouth of the Penobscot River estuary, and is drained by Long Cove Brook and Mill Brook. Summers can tend to be warm, humid (but never hot), while winters can dip into frigid temperatures with plenty of snow. Because it is situated right off the coast of the Atlantic, winters in Searsport tend to be milder than inland Maine.

3.  Waterways

3.1  Gulf of Maine

The Gulf of Maine sits off of the Atlantic Ocean and is quite expansive, containing within it the majority of oceanic waterways along the southwestern coasts of 'Souls, including the Bay of Fundy. Because of its influence by the Labrador Current, the waters in the gulf are colder and more nutrient-rich than those that can be found further south and off board. Though rocky rather than sandy, the coastline of the Gulf of Maine is still quite scenic and provides an abundance of different types of fish and other sea life.

3.2  Penobscot Bay

Originating from the mouth of Penobscot River, this inlet of the Gulf of Maine stretches from Searsport to Freetown and includes several unnamed islands. With its diverse sea life, fishing and shellfish gathering are commonplace in the bay and Luperci are likely to find their efforts handsomely rewarded if they are willing to take the time to do so.
