1st of Frost
Meet at Guilding meeting room
Get to know one another.
Discuss assignment, including terms and payment. Discuss transportation. Employers give little in the way of an idea as to what the job is really about.
We are basically told we are to seek a lost merchant vessel, missing with all hands (1 captain + 9 deckhands, all human) We are given a list of ports the vessel visited prior to it's disappearance.
Go to Old Seagate harbour via different routes.
In habour is the "East wind of Tyko" a ship of 600' long, 200' beam with 9 masts and crewed by Giants. We board "The Blackened Blade" it's much smaller sister ship for the coming voyage.
Set sail out of Seagate for Chelamby, entering into an unnatural 'fog' where we and the crew are attacked by pirates.... who are using an "inn" and the land it stands on as their vessel. We eventually drive the pirates off.
Human is killed in combat unfortunately. Personally I am torn between doing as ordered with regards to using a magic I have in effect up and instead trying to save Human. The balance of saving one vs the real possibility of being overrun as a group. I am still not sure if it was the right decision (but will never know). Silverfoam loses a leg in the conflict and notes in passing on the matter "I do apologise, it is traditional for admirals to get legless"
Human is brought back by unusual means onboard the "Blaken Blade"'s large companion ship.
6th of Frost
By our perception after about 12 hours we leave the mist and come out seeing an island with clouds above it.
Silverfoam divinates Toledo Steele to see what magics were used against us. The result was Wicca and Water.
We sail into the port of Chelamby (of the Kingdom of the same name), it is earlier morning.
After making anchor, the ship's first mate informs us that we will probably be there for 2 days and gives us some mail to take ashore and delivery. He requests that we return aboard to help deliver a shipment in the evening of the same day.
Silverfoam asks about where we can stay without the prospect of marriage. Basically an apprioprate, neutral Kassen to stay at. (that is not part of either of the 2 local factions).
Pilot master tells us of a good healer in the city for Silverfoam's situation. We walk through town and find the healer/wicca (elven). We look to acquire restoratives and healing potions. Salve of Regrow lim is available and told we need to supply green aggart if we are to get restoratives. Annocke is advised to seek out Quilos, a mage in the ice to the north and given a small container of paste with 3 uses. Synthetic poison antidote is on offer. Human is offered a potion to give visions of what one seeks. Quickness powered is available. We learn that there is a reward offered to learn why the Aura Borealis cancels out the effects and abilities of the Thaurmaturgies, the reward is offered by a local guild in Chelamby (they seek a sample of a special rock that has this effect imbedded in it) We learn that orcs, giants and humans have been through purchasing a poison that is particular effective against Silverfoam and Annooke. We also learn that Dwarves in the north will pay alot for the hearts of certain fiery flying snake creatures.
As we leave the healers a guard arrives with a letter for Silverfoam.
