Bootjack, on board The Fortuitous Sunrise, with Samhnasach . He looks but can’t hear where the voice is coming from. Before Samhnasach can do anything Bootjack runs to the edge of the ship and throws himself into the water. He is about 90 yards from the pier at this point. The sun is starting to fade. Samhnasach rushes to the edge of the ship and casts some sort of spell on Bootjack. This immediately makes Bootjacks legs feel heavy, and hard to use. Bootjack assumes this is fatigue.

They are greeted by three strange people, a tiefling, a human, and
