Having concluded our ‘business’ with Euryale which … whom(?) we now realized was a Medusa – All those poor statues … people … blocking their ill fate out of our minds as we made our return to Wickingford along the way taking the effort to pull down the archway gate …as it fell over, nothing much really happened, I guess it really was just an old archway …

Back in Wickingford we managed to persuade the villagers that relocating to a safer distance from both the lizard-people and the danger posed by Euryale would be wise and soon we found ourselves on the road again with pillars of smoke from the abandoned and burning village to our backs … I do hope they find a safer haven to make their home, we all need one … hopefully when this is over I can find one to claim as my own as well …

Having left the burning village behind, we traveled on – eventually reaching the lands of Andoran. Andoran is a strange place indeed, not bad I actually liked what I saw – the people seem to be an industrious and friendly lot, very guarded about theirs and others personal freedom something which Surt Tinge found difficult to grasp …and he almost got into trouble when he started an argument about slavery vs. bonded servitude …to be honest the finer points went a bit in over my head, but I do find the basic argument that its just wrong for one person to own another …

From Almas the port capital of Andoran, we managed to hire passage on a well armed merchantman called the Lions Share, on which we intended to cross the inner-sea to the fabled city of Absalom – Having spend a couple of days in Absalom before our ship was ready to depart, we had a chance for a bit of shopping and even seeing a few sights, truly when not being ambushed by raging monsters of having to witness the death of close friends, travelling across half the world does also hold its charms … Leaving Almas no the first tide, we had a breathtaking beautiful view as the suns’ first rays hit the Almas huge trademark golden statue pointing out across the sea, it was a beautiful sight.

At sea thus for the second time, I think we all enjoyed the pleasant atmosfpere much different on the Lions Share than what we experienced on Bronzetyren however as we were to learn the calm days was merely the lull before the storm …and a couple days later that storm broke with a vengeance ….

It had started out as a pleasant sunny day, but soon we found our selves fighting not only for our ship but our very lives, when we were attacked by the chelish tri-hull Dastardly Endeavor – It was a dark hour indeed when with The Lions Share ablaze our only chance was to set a collision course for the ship of our bane …unfortunately we only just managed to board her before the remainder of the Lions share sank beneath the waves …with a loss of all hands …
