Research: The History of the Minotaur
« on: October 16, 2019, 04:49:27 am »
A young, blonde-haired figure makes his way into the library, taking a look around. He'd already thumbed through the plain bestiaries, the various tales of the coming of goblins and orcs, of the old gods and even a few tales on this Sylansia that seems to have taken the Monster world by storm. But something else had taken his interest. The Sullivan and his crew, all minotaurs. He'd heard legends, been told tall tales, but he decided it was finally time to settle in and see just what the written word had to say on the subject.

You find mention of the following referring to Sullivan and Minotaurs ...

" Those that travel to the Port of Sullivan, know that the Pirate Sullivan has been removed and a young Bull Minotaur has taken his title. He bring a clan of minotaurs from the near by hills to claim the port as his own. "

" Sullivan's Port was not always a port but has been in the past a trading hub situated high in the jungle trees "

" Monster clans come and go in the area around Sullivan's Port, as they trade and sell their trophies from raids of caravans and villages. Some bring raw materials that they find or get slaves to collect for coin "

no other reference to Minotaur history
Build it and they will come.

Following the rather limited mention of the current Sullivan and the lack of written history on the monstrous beast-men, the blonde haired figured heaved a sigh and closed the tome. Extrapolating from what he'd learned, pieced together, he figures that the minotaurs typically tend to reside in hilly, forested terrain and are capable of somewhat sophisticated hierarchies when compared to the lower monsters like goblins. Nothing terribly exciting to gain just from that, but it does bring up a few more ideas.

The youth seeks out the librarian, asking for maps of the areas around both the port and from any mountains or hills near it, wondering if he could spot a particular pattern, a path they had taken that could be back-tracked.
