Sunday gaming at 'The Sovereigns' in Woking continues.
For the first time in almost exactly 3 months all 6 of us are in the same room at the same time. So on with 50 Fathoms.
Our 3rd ship, 'The Herodica' has been repaired and is now seaworthy.
Foolishly, the party have decided to make Jacob the captain of The Herodica. Doesn't anyone know that Jacob can't sail or even swim!
We discuss our next move and decide to head to the 'Kehuna Flumes' and set off.
During our journey, we spot a convoy of ships flying the Baltimus flag.
We approach the convoy, they in turn fire their cannons at us and warn us off. We hold back and query them.
They provide us with no useful information and threaten us again.
We decide it isn't worth the trouble and sail away.
As we approach Kehuna Flumes, we start to notice sea creatures that we don't usually see in waters and the air seems warmer than expected?
Then we see 'the flumes'.
They mostly have the appearance of a vertical stack of rock.
Some of the flumes are like chimneys and rise above the sea level, most however are under water.
'The Kehuna' are a tribal people and are very protective of the region as it lush in 'mineral' resources.
In fact we see minerals being spat out of a chimney whilst we are there.
We then noticed 3 elongated bodies swimming in the water around us. They realised that they are 'long' eels. Giant eels that produce electricity, it is wise not to strike them, so we moved to a newer spot.
Since we were at the Flumes to collect Kehuna gold, we looked around for a good spot too collect some 'minerals'.
Rackham and Wind dive down and begin their search. They manage to find 8 ounces of gold before we decided to move on. It was wise to avoid any local Kehuna.
We moved to a new spot and Rackham dived down again.
Rackham acquires some 'guard sharks' in case he encounters any trouble.
After some effort, he manages to 'mine' some more gold. Now that we have enough for our purposes, Rackham resurfaces and we prepare to move on.
I play, I paint.
