Chapter 3: A Dangerous Detour

Post Sun Apr 10, 2016 12:16 am

Awaking in the morning of day 9, the party all regain a hit point and do not lose any food.

Please look in the 'Maps' thread for the contents of the scroll you found. Soon...like, when I post it.

What do you all want to do?

Teruk and his tiny army of 5 guys are willing to go to the desert ruins if you wish. But Teruk was under the impression you just wanted help with building and carrying wood. He is prepared to help with that.

Maju gets the feeling that Teruk may actually have more men around somewhere, but he isn't offering them.

Hmm... Kanya observes that the area near #11 could make a defensible base of operations for the pirates, assuming the boat gets fixed and Herr Kapitan wishes to run raids from this island.

DM: Herr Kapitan (Jab-Afri) probably won't want that. He is most likely going to want to get back to his regular piratey life in the shipping lanes around Siam. This place is well out of the way of any major traffic.

OOC: Well then, it looks like we will need to do some pillaging and raiding upon the nearby villages... Oh hi Teruk! :)

I think we should find out what the ogres are doing... but since it looks like we're nearing the time when the ship should be ready to sail, we should go back and check on it.

Maju casts Read Languages on the old scroll map and figures out that it seems to be a hastily made copy of a better map, which has been damaged. The copy that you have refers to "illegible" and "water damaged" parts, in several places.

The text you can read says:

1 - Experimental base, underground testing areas for mutation and transformation magic
2 - Experimental temporal magical portal and testing ground
3 - Endenharga, Main Harbor and "illegible"
4 - Old underwater testing area and residence of The Grand (???? illegible).
5 - Malhargha, Cliffside dwellings, road.
6 - Old Beach Landing (not suitable for larger vessels), road.
7 - Temple of Alora, former ancient temple of unknown people. Road to be constructed to here. Strong natural magic in this region.
8 - Finharga, Onshore base for main portal (11).
9 - Alternate south harbor, disused and "water damaged section"
10 - Colharga, South east base and dwelling quarters, trade point with southern natives
11 - Main Portal. Underwater apparatus required except at extreme low tide. Newcomers advised to spend at least 1 week at the onshore base, acclimatizing, before "water damaged section."

And that's all s/he wrote.

Well, it pains me to think of wealth left unlooted but to be left on this island, I think would be a far worse fate. So yes lets go. I just hope that we find something interesting to fight on the way back. Speaking of that, Altair has told me that the ogres are not camping that far from us just north of here. Perhaps we could kill them on the way their?

"I think Teruk would appreciate us taking out the ogres and would offer help. Plus, it seems to be on our way. Let's head north."

Kanya looks surprised. "We sail to plunder the trade lanes of Cathay. What riches will two fleeing ogres have. And as for Teruk's appreciation... Seems like the Captain got the ship repaired before any help from this savage warlord arrived."

OOC: I don't care. Kanya certainly does though.
