Lake Huron rolls, Superior singsIn the rooms of her ice-water mansionThe Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald;Gordon Lightfoot.
Lake Superior is the largest, deepest, coldest, most storied and least predictable of the Great Lakes. Called Gichi-gami by the natives who once worshipped her, it has often been said that she keeps her secrets. But not all secrets she keeps are her own and not all her dead were taken by her own hand.
Superior is home to the most rugged and militant of People First! militias, the slickest of secret of organized crime hideouts, the most varied of both baseline and cryptid wildlife and the most organized of the Native American diaspora tribes. Like Gichi-gami herself her people are slow to trust but their loyalty once earned is bountiful. They are also slow to anger, but when they do finally blow, the consequences are dire.
Duluth, on the southwest point of the lake is currently a tense place. Between Covid 19; Cryptid Lives Matter protests after a certain revelation by a Duluth police officer of the systemic racism he himself had nearly acted on; the recent revelation of a kidnapping plot against the Governor of Wisconsin and the undercurrent caused by issues between the Cryptid community and the People First! militias; The area doesn’t need to add in a planned Pipeline not from the Canadian Oil sands, but from somewhere in Western Ontario that nobody has heard of; but that is what it just got.
Recently both MSNBC and Fox news are reporting on strange occurrences going on on both sides of the Pipeline battle which barely have airtime between the riots, the protests, and the upcoming election.
It is into this chaos that a veritable scrabble board of agency acronyms from both Canada and the US have been thrust, each with differing direction from the top.
Like any man or god, Superior has her own dreams, loves, secrets and purposes. They may or may not match with those of her people. Will She give up her secrets and sing or hold them close like she holds her dead; deep in her ice water mansion? And can this mystery be solved before the Storms of November close the lake, and many of the roads?
