Czarina’s EagleWith the delivery of the cannon, the Czarina’s ships are complete. As she agreed the town of Somajez and the island it’s on is once more controlled by the Vendal League. Hopefully no more lives will be lost fighting over that island. Since the town really didn’t have anything going for it, you decided to sail to Ekatnava the nearest town of any size. Ekatnava is a large shipping port, at the mouth of the river Ekatnava.
Large Rowdy Fairgrounds
If it can be bought in Ussura it can be bought here.
Most Modern City(in Ussura)
People from all lands.
Sarangerel- A note is left at the dock by a passing stranger. The note says “ Misha Oksanova has one of the artifacts taken from your family” the note is signed with the symbol of the magnetic compass(Explorer’s Society).
Pyotyr Irinova Dimitriov- You hear that at the fairgrounds, there is a Mireli performer. At the fairgrounds you find them dancing with sabers, They are a married couple Ingrid and Hans Drexal and their students, a total of five Mireli’s sword dancers.
Ardeth Bey- The bars in town are a buzz with the story that Oksanova’s dog fighting show, has the body of a strange creature on display. It is said to be a spider made of crystal. No one knows where she found it, but rumor has it that the dogs will be fighting one tomorrow night.
Wojeiech Androsik A strange man approaches you, “ sorry to bother you sir, but the young lady selling flowers at the fairground told me to give you this.” The small package when opened contains a small bag of salt, and a small loaf of bread, and a small bottle of wine. (traditional marriage salt for the adversity they will face, bread for the prosperity, wine to show they will never be thirsty again).
They watched the dogs fight against the spider, and then approached Misha, she said if they would go to a syrnth that she knew the location of and get her more of this gem encrusted silk. She would return the artifact to Sarangerel. She did warn them that the crystal spider came from the same ruins. The party always being up for a monster hunt set off. The ruin was 2 days climb from the shore in mountains that are sometimes Vesten and sometimes Ussurern. The ruins ended up being a mine carved out of the inside of the mountain, the entrance a modest cave. They quickly entered gathered the silk and began to fight the spiders who sprang out of holes in the ground. There were blue crystal spiders the size of dogs, brown crystal spiders the size of bears, and white crystal spiders about twice man size. Also some tiny yellow spiders that came out of holes in the ground and grabbed artifacts that were on the floor and carried them deeper into the mine. After beating back the first couple waves of spiders Ardeth did manage to kill one of the brown ones before it could flee. With more spiders coming out the group decided to flee. Almost all of them did make it out with one artifact or another.
When they arrived back where they had left the black swan, they found their crew tied up on the beach. Someone had stolen their ship!
Nyx Little Swan Waring used her magic to tug the strands of fate and get a nearby ship to save them. None other then Borgshowed up and for a small fee took them back to Ekatnava, where they found the Black Swan sitting in port, with it’s mast gone. It appears that Ilya Ekatnava Paveltova v’Novgorov decided to just take Paveltova v’Novgorov Brothersback. So the crew had more time in Ekatnava to wait for a new mast to be put on the ship.
These two sessions were all personal stories. Ardeth wrapped up a monster hunting story line, Saraangel, and Wojiech started their story lines, Capt Nix did one step in her storyline. After this the party is headed back to Dunkeen to meet with Lady Jane. They group also completed a ships adventure with having cargo worth more then 10 wealth, it was also the 5th ship adventure completed.
So all in all a good couple sessions.
