Category:Apocalypse / Sept / San Juan, PR
Caern Level: 3
Sept Rating: 3
Location: Isla de Cabras, San Juan, PR
- This park was bought before the Shard Seed was placed. While in reality it is a well developed and busy city park, it is now a private preserve. The park is significantly more Wyld now than it is in reality. More native plants grow, particularly along the edges exposed to the rest of the world. There is a barrier along the East Beach that prevents all but small craft from coming close to the beach. It is only appropriate for shallow drafts. The West side of the island does have an appropriate deeper water dock that is accessible for deeper draft craft such as yachts and the like.
- There is a set of three tablets that rest on the Bawn in the main gathering area.
- Multiple shrines dot the Bawn.

Respect Those of Lower Station, For All are of Gaia
This applies to Kinfolk, and specifically applying the Bite unwillingly on a kin, or the forceful coercion to be Bitten. Such action would be a breach of Litany. - Interpreted by former Truthcatcher Wins-Flame-Wars, in the human year 2017, of the month of June, on the day of the 15th
Officers of the Sept can and must be held to a higher standard. As such, any violation of the laws below by an officer shall be punished thoroughly.
Every member of the Sept is vital and important. When acting within the bounds of your auspice, ensure you inform the Councilor for your auspice. It is their job to know and coordinate the activities of their Auspices to the betterment of the Sept, they cannot do so without information. This ensures the harmony of action, and the safety of the members of this Sept.
1.Do not break the ban of our Sept totem, Dolphin.
The Will of Dolphin is one of hospitality. Violation of Hospitality disrespects the totem of our Caern. Members of the Sept, or visitors to it, shall all be held accountable for their actions and choices. Those whom are invited into our territory, who have shared our food and succor are to be honored, unless they break faith with violence or violate our laws. Members of the Sept are expected to in return honor each other and those who visit in the same way. Offering violence to one who has received Hospitality is a violation of this law.
2.Use challenges to resolve disagreements, not violence.
If a dispute cannot be resolved by words, that is what challenges are for. Being so unable to control your Rage as to do violence to another outside the bounds of challenge, makes you a liability not only to the Sept, but to the Nation. Failure to do so is a violation of this law.
3.The orders of the Sept Leader and the Council of Auspices are to be obeyed while they are in the pursuit of their duties to the Sept.
Failure to do so is a violation of the Litany, Submission to those of Higher Station. The Officers in turn, are cautioned to always keep Respect of those beneath you in the forefront of their minds when issuing orders. All are of Gaia.
4.While in another Sept’s territory, members of the Gathering Tides will abide by their Sept Laws.
As a Nation, to respect another’s Laws is to show honor to our own. Failure to do so will be punished by Gathering Tides, as well as the Sept upon which the transgression was issued.

|Dog||Jaggling||Loyalty||Dog is a spirit of loyalty, that wonders the umbral streets of San Juan.|
|Crab||Jaggling||Unknown, possibly Sea||Crab is a...crab. No one has seen Crab or where Crab lives, or stays, or visits. Crab is mysterious.|
|Bat||Jaggling||Unknown||Bat lives in the mountains, no one has visited Bat in a long while.|
|Cat||Gaffling||Animal Fathers||Cat was once a living black cat that wondered to the Bawn looking for the Death Spirit for final release. It once helped guide shifters to the Autumn Realm when it was taken home. It has been recently seen wondering the streets of San Juan in the Umbra.|
|Manatee||Gaffling||Sea||A small herd of West Indian Manatees that travel the warm waters of the Puerto Rican coast.|
|Corozal rat||Gaffling||Rat||A once populous number of these spirit rats roamed the Umbra but their numbers dwendle as their earthly counter parts have since gone extinct. No one knows when the last of them will disappear|
|Boa||Gaffling||None||Numerous yellow tree boas exist within the Umbral landscape of the forests of Puerto Rico. They also have found ways to survive within towns and even San Juan.|
|Puerto Rican Gharial||Gaffling||None||Another fading spirit due to its earthly counter parts long extinct, the long thin-nosed crocodile was once native to the waters of the island.|
|Elkhorn Coral||Gaffling||Coral||Like the reefs of the waters along Puerto Rico, so to the spiritual Elkhorn dot the underwater landscape. Like their earthly counterparts, they suffer.|
|Mysterious Blue Lobster||Unknown||Unknown||Spotted in January of 2020, this mysterious blue lobster spirit was spotted following members of the Sept back from the Umbral realms of Dolphin. Its purpose is unknown.|
|Spirit Name||Rank||Brood of Spirit||Description of Spirit|
|Name of Shrine||Location||Description of Shrine|
|Coral||On the bawn||A small alcove build of mortar and beach collected coral pieces, sheltering a single larger piece of undamaged coral the size of a football.|
|Coral||100 yards off the coast||A carefully tended cluster of transplanted corals, meticulously cleaned of trash by a Bravo regularly.|
|Dolphin||Tide Cove||Sculpture of Dolphin in her human and animal form set on a based made of crushed stone and coral that takes the shapes of wave. Submerged at high-tide and exposed at low-tide.|
|Boa||On the bawn||One of a host of new shrines dedicated by Bad Omen and Spins Silver, Boa’s shrine is a tree on the Bawn that is strung with palm wreaths braided and woven into infinite loops around each branch, where offerings are left in a hollow under the roots.|
|Coqui||On the bawn||A small, sheltered bromeliad garden in a shallow pool, where a glass frog watches from between the fronds and “sings” when the wind blows at the right angle over the holes in its transparent body.|
|Crash Caddo||On the bawn||A wide, flat stone served as an altar atop a short, rocky cliff above a plunge into the exposed northeastern ocean. A metal cockerel in profile, with the single star of Puerto Rico cut into the center, spins wildly atop a rod bolted to the top of the rock, simultaneously a weathervane and lightning rod in honor of the lord of storms|
|Trade Winds||Off the northern coast on a rock island||A simple reed woodwind fixed to a post on the rocky outer island, oriented north to south. When the Trade Winds blow, from north to south, the bright strips of blue and green cloth tied to the post dance in the wind, and the high-pitched harmony of the instrument can be heard on the shore|
|Crab||On the beach and the bawn||A cairn of ocean-worn stones piled together on the beach and contained by a sturdy, woven net. It is mostly submerged at high tide and exposed at low, and makes excellent feeding ground for the crustaceans feeding in the surf. Another small cairn is present in the trees on the bawn for the mangrove-dwellers. Many of the stones are dyed or carved in the rough impression of a carapace.|
|Ocean Glass||Near the beach||On a flat rock altar overlooking the beach, bits of sea glass of every size and hue are affixed in a three-dimensional mosaic resembling a cresting wave.|
|Corozal Rat||On the bawn||A woven nest of fronds rests inside a hollow at the foot of a tree on the bawn. Small offerings of local greenery are left there for the spirit of the little herbivorous rodent.|
|Puerto Rican Gharial||On the bawn||Near the bromeliads honoring Coqui and sharing the freshwater pool is a triangular stone resting in the water, just high enough for the polished obsidian bulb of its nostrils and the glinting yellow glass of its eyes to break the surface.|
|Manatee||Eastern lagoon||In the sheltered lagoon on the eastern side of the island is a patch of carefully-tended seagrass. Manatee’s shrine is watched over by a glass fishing float tethered to the bottom by a long enough lead that it drifts, glinting in the sun, across the whole patch.|
|Sand||On the beach||Sand’s shrine is not so much a single altar as a form; at the edge of the ocean, sunken posts, reeds, and rocks create ever-shifting patterns of sinks and rises as the sand piles ebb and flow around them with the water. Sand’s shrine is reborn every few hours with the tide.|
|Elkhorn Coral||On the bawn||Like the other inland shrine to corals, but this one is located on Las Cabritas, in a hollow among the volcanic rocks. Shattered fragments caught on the rocks by the tide are placed here, but those fragments that can be reseeded are relocated to the off-shore shrine.|
|Death Spirit||At the edge of the bawn||A stone with a small hollow, where a candle or incense may be burned out of the rain. A pair of small brass bells hang from the apex and stir the rising smoke when they are rung.|
