    Under new management

    Post  Chris on Fri Oct 19, 2018 10:47 pm



    Dawn stretches her rosy fingers over Wyvern Bay.  A layer of morning fog covers the ship like a blanket.  New Captain Hawkes notices that the crew wakes with the spring of purpose in their steps.  

    Describe what your character does on the first morning aboard his own ship.  



    Sailing through the Archipelago is no easy task.    Who shall act as Navigator and plot the course?

    Crispy wakes quite early in an introspective mood. Avenging Gundren had been his sole purpose for some time, and a vast uncertain future now lay before him. He spends the early morning hours meditating and practicing martial arts forms on the foredeck, hoping the fleeting moments of peace will offer some guidance.

    When the rest of the crew wakes, Crispy will rummage the ship’s stores in an attempt to procure some breakfast. He’d been the cook’s mate on Gundren’s ship, mostly because he is a shite sailor and he is supremely comfortable and capable around cookfires in the galley. Whatever he finds he will do his best to prep into a meal for himself and the others.

    Sam will take a whack at the Navigator roll. Assuming he's successful, with the Capn's leave, he'll then man the wheel

    After taking stock of provisions and the other sundries aboard, Sjon will take a walk about the entirety of the ship looking for any sort of damage. Broken chains, cut ropes, punctures or cracks in the hull, railings, or decking. He makes note to do regular maintenance and repairs with Mending. Should there be any questions about the weather forecast, he is always happy to spend a moment and perform druidcraft to predict the upcoming weather.

    Should Crispy whip up something delicious, Sjon will certainly make his way towards that.

    Hawkes wakes with a start, as he often does. Drifting to sleep the night before, he wondered whether he would wake up back on the prison ship. 'Tis a recurring thought at bed time, but particularly after a great achievement or pleasant day.

    "Aye Sam," Hawkes consents. "Swing her past the docks before taking her out. I will relieve you mid morning." Hawkes strolls on with his morning inspection.

    "A fine meal, Crispy. Make sure Renda is fed well before we reach civilization."

    "She's a fine ship, Sjon. Let's be sure to strike her name from every part of the ship."

    Hawkes begins with the logues and documents, if Rogan kept any. Hawkes will skim them for information before redacting the name of the ship.

    The Eye is generally in decent, but not great shape.  It did take some damage from the Krakken before Renda quelled its hunger with a sacrifice.  That damage consists of broken railings, cracked boards, etc.  It is nothing that makes her un-seaworthy, but is just basic hull damage.  The rigging, sails and vital items seem intact.

    Sam finds some common maps of the Archipelago in Rogan's quarters.  There are no maps of Frostheim or his home. Hawkes wonders just how long ago that was....

    Sam aims to sail past the docks....

    study I appreciate that call Alan, as I am hoping Rob will be standing on the docks flagging you down for a ride lol!

    study ok, you can find Rob later if he decides to roll up a character, moving on.....





    Sam pilots the ship out of Wyvern Bay and into the open ocean.   Hawkes estimates the ship is making about 9 knots with strong winds.  The crew notices some playful mantas surfing in the ship's wake.  



    One leaps out of the water, before the pod departs.







    After a couple hours, the winds calm down.  The ocean is still and peaceful as the ship slowly sails along.

    Around midday, the crew begins to feel hungry.  Renda notices a rocky island off the starboard side.  The Archipelago is full of hundreds of such islands.   Sjon finds some fishing gear stowed below deck, if the crew wants to catch some lunch.

    Sorry guys, busy weekend. Back on station.

    Renda wakes early as always, eats a few chickens alive, and gets to work.

    Any additional info on the kracken dagger after bonding with it?

    no worries, we were slow waiting to see if Rob was joining


    I basically already told you about the Krakken dagger when we discussed whether you needed to ID it - it is a ritual sacrifice dagger, that grants the owner a boon from Krakken (by whatever name) after an appropriate sacrifice. You have to keep the blade, but not necessarily use it or hold it, to maintain the boon.


    Renda ate the only live chickens that were on board the ship. Finger-licking good! The crew will have to do without eggs for the rest of the voyage.

    There is probably some small game to found on the shores of islands or of course live fish, nice a wriggly

    stop to look for food (live game) or keep going and fish?

    The above-spotted island appears rocky.  It sounds like you want to keep sailing and look for something more lush and tropical....


    The rest of the first day features calm winds and slow progress.  The crew does not see any other islands in the second half of the day.  





    “A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”


    Captain Hawkes, how does the crew pass the night in their watches?

    While Hawkes, Crispy and Sam slumber away below,  Renda and Sjon stroll the deck of the ship, enjoying the spectacular display of the heavens above....






    Fortune favors the bold!  The night passes with nothing more to report than a few shooting stars and some light fog.


    Unfortunately, the sleepers are not so lucky.   Hawkes, Sam and Crispy's sleep is filled with nightmares.  These are the worst fears and personal demons for each character.

    There is no save or roll of any kind, sorry.   Hawkes, Sam and Cripsy's rest is so disturbing, it doesn't count as a long rest and they regain none of the benefits.  In addition, each sleeper starts the day at -5 to their maximum HP.  You have full HP, but your current and max are 5 less.   Hawkes, Sam and Crispy feel groggy and tired for the whole day.

    Take a moment and describe your character's horrific visions....

    Hawkes stands the first watch, uncertain about his new responsibility. Sailing with Hawkes as first mate has been unlucky for two crews now. What will he be like as Captain? He knows he is clever enough, but does he have the character?
    Hawkes drifts off into a haze of uncharacteristic worry. "You'll get another job," she says. "We'll come up with something."
    Little... Suzie... Coughs, "we can't afford a doctor, it's just a cold," but is it?
    "Bang bang bang," the door rattles. "Open up! Your tax is overdue!" Hawkes barely has time to grab a lock of Suzie's hair from before she died before his family is rushed out of their hovel and evicted. His...son... Puts up a fight and is shot. There's a scuffle and a soldier dies. "Death by hanging!" The Judge is proud of himself. Hawkes watches his wife's face darken and wakes as the rope tightens around his neck.
    Hawkes is exhausted and shaken. But he is even more certain than before that the most dangerous thing a man can do is try to live an honest life...

    It’s the monastery again. It’s ALWAYS the monastery. Crispy is already exhausted when it begins. The kind but stern master drilling him endlessly on control, and focus, and discipline and...and...ENOUGH!!!!! Crispy feels the heat raise from deep in his gut and then the flashes begin...the mater consumed by the fireball...his fellow adepts rushing him struck down in turn...the other masters sprinting out of the spartan dormitory with tongues of flame licking at their heels and climbing up their backs...their bodies joining the others...and then he is running with panting, ragged breaths not loud enough to drown out the screams of those trapped inside... the snowfield in the mountain pass outside the gates gleaming in the moonlight...so cold...no fire....his own sobs he can hear but not feel...the numbness...the regret...

    As Renda wakes him for the sunrise watch Crispy mistakes him for the sherpa who drug his hypothermic body down from the pass, he is shivering despite the early morning tropical warmth. After a minute to collect and reorient himself, he heads topside to groggily start his day.

    Josh asked me to write his nightmare for him....

    Sam fancied himself an actor in his youth. He has always been charming and took naturally to the theater.

    Sam's sleep is filled with recurring stage scenes. He walks out on stage, but he is naked. The audience laughs nervously. Sam tries to speak... but he forgets his lines. His fellow actors stare at him. Sam rushes off stage left. He is met by the stage manager, a dumpy halfing with round spectacles. He hurriedly helps Sam get dressed, whispering his lines in his ear.

    Sam enters dramatically, only to find himself naked once more. The scene has changed. The play itself has changed. The lines he was told by the stage manager no longer fit the scene. More uncomfortable laughter from the groundlings.

    Sam tries to exit stage right, but instead of the darkened wings, he ends up on yet another stage, still naked and with no clues of his lines.

    Sam wakes from hours of this cycle. He is relieved to find that he is wearing clothes, though they are drenched in sweat.

    Day 2 at sea....

    Sjon and Renda notice the other 3 are dragging their feet all morning.  It's as if they didn't sleep well.

    Progress is slow due to the crew's tiredness.

    Nobody fished yesterday, so it's goodberries and dry stores again for breakfast and lunch.  Survival checks if anyone wants to fish.


    Sometime after lunch, Unfeathers cries out from the rigging

    " <sqwak> Land Ho! Land Ho! <sqwak>"

    the crew sees an island with a large mountain in the center.  black sand extends from the mountain to the beaches.  the island looks very lush and full of life.  there are tropical birds flying around the trees and Renda thinks he spots a drove of tapirs at the treeline.  



    also, let me know if anyone wants to discuss the night's events or try to do anything to figure it out

    Renda observes the sorry state of his crewmates and is vexed.

    "Hungry faces..." he says before too long, gesturing towards the afflicted. "Not enough dream to eat."

    Gazing out at the game roaming the island...
    "Hunt, Capatan?"





    He also fishes up some fresh meat -

    of course there are arrows, no worries. "here's a magic bow, but no arrows!" I am not that much of a dick GM Rolling Eyes

    Renda has a good fight with a White Marlin! He manages to haul in a 60lb fish







    Do you guys want to drop anchor and take the launch to shore? everyone or only some?

    look at the pic below....  the rest of the island looks like the sides of the image.  it features about 10ft of beach with 20-50ft rock cliffs.  the vegetation is dense. it seems as if any lava flow is generally limited to this one chute.



    the black sand area is the most accessible landing, though certainly not the only option.

    The party spots multiple herds of animals as the ship makes its lap

    there are droves of tapirs



    you see a mob of emu



    you even spot a Huddle of Walruses



    the party can tell there are some larger creatures moving about under the tall canopy of trees as well

    Until this moment Sjon had not realized how awkward it would be to climb into a launch craft with a staff in one hand, but he makes do and is ready to explore. As the crew moved towards the shore, he spends a moment, casting druidcraft to gain some insight on how the weather will hold up around the island for the day.

    Sjon studies the clouds, the patterns of a school of fish, the calls of birds.... it promises to be a bright and sunny day.



    The crew lands on the beach. The sand is warm and soft. Seagulls dive into the shallows for fish. Small crabs scurry away from your boots.

    The crew stashes the launch and covers it with some palm fronds.

    To the right of your landing is the black sand. The huddle of walruses are sunning themselves.
    To the left is the drove of tapirs near the treeline.
    Ahead and above on the rocks is the mob of emu.

    Which way and how do you proceed?

    The crew makes it way up the rocks and into the thick canopy of the jungle. There is a faint smell of rotten eggs in the air. It gets stronger as you climb up, when you reach the upper treeline, you can see the mob is congregated around some bubbling hot springs.



    Since you are hunting, i assume you are sneaking up in them?
    If so, everyone give me a stealth check and your passive perception please

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +7" :

    A passive check is a special kind o f ability check that doesn’t involve any die rolls. Such a check can represent the average result for a task done repeatedly, such as searching for secret doors over and over again, or can be used when the DM wants to secretly determine whether the characters succeed at something without rolling dice, such as noticing a hidden monster.

    Here’s how to determine a character’s total for a passive check: 10 + all modifiers that normally apply to the check If the character has advantage on the check, add 5. For disadvantage, subtract 5. The game refers to a passive check total as a score. For example, if a 1st-level character has a Wisdom of 15 and proficiency in Perception, he or she has a passive Wisdom (Perception) score o f 14.
    The rules on hiding in the “Dexterity” section below rely on passive checks, as do the exploration rules in chapter 8.

    PASSIVE Perception for Renda is 16 : 10+2/WIS+4/Proficency

    Sjon has an irresistible urge to sneeze. Seems that trying to stifle it has only made it worse.

    The party creeps through the thick jungle towards the mob of Emu.

    "ahhhh..... ahhh...... AAHHHHCCCHHHHOOOO!"

    However, Sjon sneezes and scares them all off. The mob scatters as they flee further inland and up hill.


    Sam's keen eyes notice that a small grey creature appears to be following the crew through the jungle. All Sam can see is occasional flashes of grey fur or tiny ears. If Sam had to guess, it looks like a large mouse, though it would stand some 3ft tall by the height of the ears.




    Do you guys want to keep following the Emu, stop and investigate the grey mouse or something else?
