New Horizons

The Tower - 6

Prelude

As the party approaches the watchtower they saw from the ship they come across an overgrown rampart. The rampart is about five feet tall, and about as wide at the top. Spaced along the top are a series of stone markers, spaced about ten feet apart. Lanquor pulls one out of the circle to examine, but is unable to decipher it’s runic script.
Within the Rampart are the remains of several long buildings, their stone walls standing but their roofs long since fallen in. The tower itself is at the far edge of the enclosure, aparrently only a few feet from the cliff’s edge. Of note is that while the vegetation around the enclosure is lush, within the plant life seems sickly.

Summary

As Rance crossed the barrier about a dozen undead of various types appeared within the ruins. A few were armed with bows and quickly attacked while others were armed rusty and barely functional weapons. The crew of the Far Trader engaged these vile creatures and soon brought their reign of terror over the ruins to an end. They investigated and found some booty in the form of both magical items and treasures.

After some investigation they turned up a trap door which led beneath the settlement to some naturally occurring vents. They followed the vents and eventually encountered another pair of undead pirates who tried to end their investigation. They were dealt with quickly and also yielded some rich treasure.

They continued going down and finally smelled the brine of sea air. They continued down until they found themselves in a large water-filled cavern. Looking around, they found many bones of the dead; it was clear that natives had fought hard against the pirates, but there were many dead on both sides and there was no way to tell if the natives or pirates had won the battle.

Beached on the shore of this natural cavern was a waterlogged ship with tattered sails. There were none of the old sails left, but it was pretty clear they had found the Blood Eagle.
