For those in peril on the sea.

Thank you Mario, But our princess is in another castle.
episode 21

The party begins negotiations with Aethean and Brutus. The pirates have a list of demands that they want. The party basically didn’t have any demands

They discover a few things about the southern lands that they find interesting. There are very few humans, no dwarves, and its basically controlled by an orcish empire.

The party is offered the chance to tour the pirate ships, they learn about gunpowder and canons.

Elsen pretends to vomit down into the hold in order to get below decks. She cleans up the mess but manages to pilfer a few things after drinking from a spitoon to induce vomit.

As the evening goes on the discussions with the pirates goes well, after a couple of hours, the alarm bell on the pier starts ringing frantically.

The party meanders over to the main pier after ensuring the pirates were settled back onto their ships and watches were set.

They find that both Collette and Maryann were both knocked unconcious and Collette was badly wounded. Leslie who was ringing the bell says there was a loud crack then everything went black. After casting some healing spells, they find out from collette that some hideous creature had made off with Griselda saying that they were taking what was owed to them.

The party after talking amongst each other decided that was OK, and that they didn’t want to leave while the pirates were still in port. Collette was disgusted by this decision. As was Madrak.

episode 20

Crew awakens to a dense fog, unable to see they aren’t sure which way they are heading.

After much deliberating, Elsen climbs the mainmast and is able to pin point the sun, directly overhead.

After much more deliberating Blake flies into the air and up through the fog, he finds which direction a couple of islands are and heads the ship that direction.

Boot gets Quatro intoxicated, the poor little guy pukes up some gears and eventually passes out face down. Followed shortly by Bootjack himself. Kith bravely stays up and takes the watch.

The next morning the fog begins to lift, they discover and island just south of them and realize that they must have gone too far south as they do not recognize the island. As Hannik begins to prepare to disembark and do some exploring, they see a pair of ships bearing towards them… falling asleep TBC

They decide to turn away from the ships as Elsen has had dealings with this group of individuals before and they are pirates, and not very nice ones apparently. The party realizes they are much faster than the other ships and are able to make landfall back at the docks with some time to spare.

They raise the alarm and put together a small assault force on the wave drake, and a ranged attack group on Norrain’s ship. They sail out to meet the opposing ships ready to fight if they have to , but flying the flag of truce, that Elsen was able to recall. The other ship raised the flag of truce. Elsen, disguised as a male elf, Kith, and Bootjack went below decks and launched out of the rear of the ship (white chip ftw). To meet the opposing crew on their dinghy.

The captain of the other ship spoke in elven and Kith decided to take the reigns on the negotiation rather than speak common and allow everyone to have a role in the negotiation. He made a deal to host a feast for the pirates and to stow the guns. Bootjack made a show of taking a very long time stowing the weapons to trick the pirates into believing it would take them a long time to set their weapons back up.

The party also set up some ambush type traps burrowing small pits along the docks and filling them with oil, hiding a bunch of goblins with bows behind some crates a dock over in case there is trouble.

The pirate ships landed on the middle pier after avoiding some of the wreckage in the harbor. The Captain of one of the ships, an elf named Aethean and the other Captain a massive taciturn orc named Brutus. They sat down and commenced the feasting. The mood was light and there was a lot of banter.

Elsen disguised herself as a member of one of the pirate crews and snuck on board their ship.

Hannik ensured that the pirate crews were fed hard dwarven ale and made sure that his people were being served a more watered down ale.

A big fight, and a reunion with an old uh... friend.
episode 19
  • Party was not well rested after fighting Grawn, soon they realize that they don’t have access to their full repertoire of spells and abilities due to fatigue and hunger.

Hannik swims up and grabs a piece of a recently defeated shark. The party eats the raw fish, some reluctantly.

Hannik starts looking through the steel kelp orb cages, finding some gruesome remains, some strange black orbs with bright golden center, and finally he finds Elsen. A wood elf thief from the south.

The party soon realizes that they have taken too much time and that a small force of mer folk have arrived to hold them.

The party attacks the force and after a fierce fight defeats them. Hannik kills one of the merrow and steals his shark mount, utilizing his animal handling skills to the best of his ability. The creature helps score the victory.

Kith nearly dies after his lightning spells cause too much damage and cause him to draw too much attention from the enemy.

The new thief goes batshit crazy, slaughtering enemies left and right with gusto.

After defeating the group the party smashes their way through the side of the temple wall membrane and drop down into a lava rock maze. The mer folk refuse to follow despite T’sunimo’s orders

The party soon finds out why, their old friend “baby Kraken” as they call him makes his triumphant return. He searches relentlessly for the party, nearly cornering them several times before being lured away by a witty Blake Griffin using invisibility and Kiths pass without trace. Eventually losing the creature without having to engage the beast with the party nearly dead.

The party manages to find their way back to the ship and find that they have been gone for 90 days or so. Quadro is there and lets them know that he had thought for sure that they had perished. The party slept soundly allowing Quatro to stand watch, and then prepared to set sail and return home.

-they can hear talking and shouting from the outside. It sounds like they are being searched for possibly.

-They smash their way out of the orb and find themselves in a dark dark area with several mer creatures near them, and sharks circling around a hundred feet or so up above them. They can see T’sunimo and Grawn above as well. The room has a hundred or so orbs of similar size to the one they were captured in.

- The mers see the party and engage them, and are quickly defeated. T’sunimo and Grawn engage the party. T’sunimo, whom the party doesn’t particularly like, takes the brunt of their attack and flees.

-Queen asks the party to escort them to the temple of the great worm. The party is unsure but Trevor says yes for everyone.

-After several skirmishes they reach come to the temple of the worm. The name fits quite literally, as the temple appears to be some sort of massive worm corpse or fossil.

-The queen invites them inside, they find her in a room filled with hundreds of orbs similar to but smaller than the one they gave her. She requests that the party take their rest and they will be provided with food, lodging, and drink.

- The party is lead to a large tube flush to the ground Grawn pulls a small star shaped plant out of his pouch and places it over the tube. The plant expands until it is the size of the tube and the party is able to stand on it. They stand on it and it closes up around them forming a sphere. They can feel themselves descending.

-Don Tabb quips how it would be funny if they just locked themselves in a prison cell.

-They just locked themselves in a prison cell. The orb starts leaking black cloudy substance into the water. The party starts beating and banging on the orb, they can feel it starting to break down. One by one they slowly drop out of consciousness.
