    Challenge Phrase: The Torn Map
     
  2. Plot:: You know those sea serpents and sea monsters you see on those maps? The ones that are believed to be decoration. Well, they aren't. Each one represents a sighting. People have a hard time staying quiet after seeing one of these beasts. mapmakers take note of these stories, and add them as a warning, usually unheeded. They also add them for our benefit. You see, we know about these creatures habits, that they usually stay in the same areas, their "territories." We know because it's our job to hunt them, and bring them down. Each map we find is valuable to us, because each map is different to those of us that pay attention to the details, such as the serpents and monsters. Some of them lead to only dead ends, but we've seen the creatures and have done battle with them before, and we know that they are out there.
     
  3. Since the beginning of time, people have told stories of the Bermuda Triangle, painting it as a mysterious place that simply swallows ships, people and other objects, a place ruled by supernatural powers. For many years, people have believed these tales and avoided the place, but in the recent centuries, science started investigating the Bermuda Triangle. Many, many logical and reasonable explanations of this strange phenomenon came up, all of them believable, all of them fully credible. Yet the true explanation behind the Bermuda Triangle is something so terrible that we can not even comprehend its existence, a creature that can warp all around it, even the laws of reality. It lurks in the depths, patiently drawing Its prey closer and closer until It can devour the vulnerable flesh, bone and steel, then It seeks another target and lures that to Itself.

    The form of this unspeakable monster has only been seen once, but all records have been erased of It. Only a small group of humans exist that know of It, and even they are slowly dying, for many refuse to believe that something so beyond our range of comprehension exist. And thus, as the days go by, It grows stronger luring more and more targets towards Itself. Its body slowly gains nutrients, pushing up the sea level. Its volume expands, slowly engulfing the entire world, at first only in water, then in Its body. And when the floods start, it will be already too late for humanity, the blind species that refuses to accept the existence of something so trivial as a concept, a beng that is truly beyond comprehension.

    But that day is far. Far too far to be of concern to humanity. Far too far to be of concern to the star that the Earth revolves around. But just close enough to make the universe shiver in fear.
