New Horizons

The Blood Eagle - 7

Prelude

The prow of the ancient ship is well up on the sand. The ship has a single main deck with a partial aft deck. While the ship’s stern is under water, the aft deck is above water. The ship’s lone mast has toppled to the side, it’s lines long since rotted away.
The pebbled beach is covered with debris. Driftwood and boulders are evident, as well as old timbers and barrels. It also becomes apparent that there are a number of skeletal remains among the litter and moss, some of which appear to have weapons.
“I wasn’t dreaming? There is someone there?” comes a female voice from the deck of the ship.

Summary

Rance and Lanquor struck up a conversation with the attractive woman. She explained that she had been aboard the ship for the battle and had been stuck here when the captain was speared. Somehow his death or the spear had somehow trapped her spirit. As they talked they noticed she was beautiful and had strange marks on her back. She was not undead nor evil as far as they could tell although she was enchanted.

As Bob, Truman, and Rance boarded the ship with the intention of replacing the bell, a strange voice spoke to Lanquor and he found himself compelled to remove the spear. When he did, the woman laughed maniacally and was revealed to be a winged demon. About a half-dozen other demons joined her.

There was a furious battle and the demons proved difficult to slay -- it was even harder since about half of them, including the woman, could fly. Bob blasted her twice with his musket while the others were tied up dealing with her allies. It wasn't easy as the demons seemed immune to some damage and the battle was tough. Both Timbers and the Luggage were enlarged which helped but was barely enough.

Luckily, Timbers managed to clear the last of the minor demons just in time to grab her by an ankle and swing her onto Rance's spear. She disappeared in a pool of ichor.

After killing the rest of the demons, they checked the dead and the ship for treasure and found some. Once they had cleared the treasure from the ship, they finally replaced the bell. A long rope was used to ring it while they were ashore as no one was certain what would happen.

A quintet of undead appeared even as the bell dissolved into dust. the undead were dispatched quickly and the group laid their plans for their continuing adventures.
