New Horizons

Castaway - 2

Prelude

At the ship
Furtive sneaking

At the ship (later)
Angry railing and gnashing of teeth

Summary

As the group approached the second ship they noticed she had plenty of good timbers to make their repairs and they couldn't help but hurry their steps a bit. Perhaps that's why they failed to notice the angry gnome who fired a wildly inaccurate shot at them.

After a few minutes discussion, Chuck managed to convince the gnome the grouop's intentions were friendly. He opened up and told them about his friend Rollo who had recently been kidnapped by cannibals. Not wanting anyone to be eaten, they decided to rescue him.

Timbers picked up his tracks and was able to follow him from the beach to a game trail and beyond. As they walked, three pigs suddenly charged onto the trail and attacked them. The group set to and was easily able to overmatch the hundredweight porcines. As they finished and Timbers healed Rance, a giant bird soared overhead.

It dove for the pigs, but settled for Chuck and carried him off. Luckily, it was no match for the combined firepower brought to bear by Bob, Rance, and Lanquor and it was soon grounded and then put to the sword. Chuck was healed and then it was on to the trail.

They followed it up to a potentially dormant volcano, pausing only briefly to deal with a trio of large lizards who attacked. There was a stream near the volcano and a waterfall. They found an entrance to the caldera near the waterfall and went in.

Inside the cave they were attacked by two giant humanoid creatures who might have been golems. It was not an easy fight, but they prevailed and Timbers used the last of his healing before they progressed.

In the final cave they found an old woman and Rollo. As they spoke to her none of them realized that Rollo had disappeared. He turned out to be the real cannibal and an alchemist. He threw a bomb at the old witch which exploded leaving her sickened.

Unfortunately for him, a single shot from Bob's trusty musket left him headless. With him out of the way, the group helped the witch and learned that it was the gnome who had gone cannibal prompting Rollo to try to hide from him.

They found some treasure on the gnome and even more when they returned to the ship to scavenge for food, gear, and spare parts they needed.
