Golden Age of Fantasy Piracy
Eye of Abendego
The Eye of Abendego (pronounced ah-BEN-deh-go)is a vicious, permanent hurricane located in the Gulf of Mexico. It appeared a century ago at the beginning of the though it’s origins are still a mystery. It is utilized to great effect by the pirate lords of the Caribbean who hide their illegal activities behind it. The intensity of the Eye is variable. At its weakest it can tear the sails off the biggest ships. At its strongest, the wind alone can blow a large vessel into splinters. The Eye periodically spawns smaller storms which travel up and down the American coastlines, bringing torrential rain and hurricane-speed winds to outlying regions.
