The Crimson Entente DoE
AND THE SCUTTLING OF THE MIGHTY ATLANTIC
Many moons ago, a great flotilla of ships would navigate the vast seas of Orbis. Embarked upon a voyage to return to the old-world, they struggled through vicious storms, brawled with infamous pirates and charted new lands and riches. Legends and lore of ancient empires and cities slowly crumbling with relentless march of time, propelled them forward into perilous unknown. As their ships raced east, charging towards the rising sun, their hearts of hope chased a future beyond the horizon.
Yet all was not well within this fleet. In the shadows of the great-ships, darkness was stirring. Two captains, brought on several months into the voyage, with dark and bloody ambitions belied by their apparent geniality, would have a lust for power to such a degree, that they would betray the admiral – sacrificing both him and the alliance at the altar in their greed.
As the knowledge of the treachery spread, it was mere hours before the first flames erupted upon the decks of the fleet, as it was torn into two and brother fought brother. Amid the chaos of suspicion and grief, dozens of frigates were scuttled. The survivors would drift at the whim of the currents for weeks, the wind having disappeared from their sails and their bearings lost as they drifted from their course.
All, was not lost, however. Lady Fortune does indeed favour the bold and thus, having pushed against the evil enacted upon them, the balance was tipped in the favour of these sailors. They beached upon the sand-banks outside of what remained of the town of La Rochelle, the great towers of the harbour a beacon of hope for the survivors.
The continent lay before them, as they pressed deeper into its heart. Men and women of the sea, now rebuild and rule from castles in the hills. A new alliance emerges, remembering the blood and life had been spilt in their journey, an eagle rising from the plains of Europe.
Their fate presses onward

tldr: The Mighty Atlantic is dead, we're creating something new (not just Sean doing it this time, though), that's loosely themed around a fusion of Franco-Germanic culture. Avoid the traitor, Morgan. We also care about our members, or something like that.
