Ella Valham sat in the crows nest overlooking the seas and down at the crew. Next to her was the Kehana slave, Hopper, the last Kehana on ship, the rest had disappeared over the past few months. The captain was down on deck commanding his vessel whilst the others worked away. Pots was filling the sail with the wind needed to continue our journey, a wind magician who is very necessary in an environment like this.
The Rebecca was moving smoothly through the water when it struck something large causing most to loose their balance. Hopper looked down and saw a large shadow move through the water and then disappear. Ella glides down to the deck as the others regain their footing and go to the edge of the ship to look at what happened.
Ethalamandas and Teran Terik lean over the edge to see a gaping hole in the bow and now everyone is on alert. Grug starts to gather equipment to help with the repair effort and the crew start to get busy.
Hek mean while spotted some sharks circling 3 crew members who fell in the water so she decides to jump in. Ella throws down some rope for the crew to climb up whilst the Doreen keeps the sharks busy. The crew overboard got safely on the ship and Hek with the support of Pots, who from on deck provided magical assistance killed all three sharks.
Hopper, now down from the crows nest heads towards the damaged area of the ship below deck, now flooded knee deep in water. He grabs a plank and braces the side of the ship so it doesn’t buckle any further. Dahk, the ships Doreen first mate, who was also there had taken this opportunity to knife the Kehana in the back but missed. When Grug and Teran arrived the two were fighting and it looked like the slave was attacking the first mate. Having none of that Grug also took a swing at Hopper, can’t have slaves attacking the ships crew and especially not killing the first mate. Unfortunately Grug missed and Dahk died. Hopper could not believe that everyone was trying to kill him whilst trying to repair the ship, but it didn’t look good and he knew the Captain would not be happy. In fact he was lucky Grug didn’t kill him on the spot, a punishment suitable for the crime, whether Dahk started it or not a slave just can’t do that kind of thing.
Teran settle things down and Hopper tried to fix things but the damage was too extensive and there was too much water. The ship was going to sink, it was now a question of could we get to land before that happened. As it turned out we managed to get to Torath-Ka, the Red Man savage world.
The Rebecca was now beached and scout parties ventured forth. Pots, Grug, Ella and Hopper headed west and came across and old skiff, one which may offer a way off this island if it can be repaired. To the east Etha, Teran and Hek came across some large foot prints, not human but Yellowback, a large fierce reptile. Teran looked up from the footprint to see three Yellowback’s charging.
Back at the Rebecca the two teams come together, after spotting smoke bellowing from the ship. Etha, Terran and Hek tell of their tale of the yellowbacks and how they were defeated but they have to move on. The crew has been taken, dragged into the jungle and the provisions gone.
It looks like we are stuck here for the moment…
