13th April 2020
It's Easter Monday, Easter Sunday was a no-go for gaming, so we decided to reschedule for Monday as everyone would be available. So I'm sitting in my living room, connecting to the group via Skype.
Location: The Flotsam Sea
Our fight against the Octopods continued.
We are still battling the warlock and the giant octopus. Rackham manages to defeat the warlock and by using fire, Shia manages to vanquish the giant octopus.
We searched the enemies' ship and found some useful spoils of war:
- A sealed barrel of water, we examined this and discovered it was water from Earth. What we've been looking.
- We also found an unusual pair of cannons that exuded an air of magic, they were magical and apparently known as 'The Big Pounders!'
- A magical figurehead.
Rackham searched the dead warlock and found a glass eye in a pocket, he senses that it was magical in some way.
After this, we went deeper into the Flotsam Sea. Eventually we managed to acquire some elemental water without any trouble.
After this however, a thick fog settled on the water and as we pressed on, it became thicker. Navigating our way out of this was going to prove very trying.
As we are trying to get our bearings, a figure of a maiden or a girl seemingly materialised out of the fog? Even though she is not close, we easily hear her voice.
She told us the following. "Seek out the sword of King Amemnus, the heart of the archmage and what The Kraken have lost? Without these, our task will fail.".
With this she simply vanishes, lost in the fog.
A few hours later the fog evaporates and is quickly gone.
We spied some land on the horizon and now the sky is clear, we take some bearings. We are greatly surprised to find that somehow we have crossed the Flotsam Sea and found ourselves on the other side.
The island we spotted ahead, is part of 'The Whip Islands' chain of islands!
I play, I paint.
