I’ll start the adventure log off for you guys, since you may not remember everything I read off. (basic info on your NPC acquaintances is in the Serpent’s Skull Player’s Guide)
After boarding the ship from points all over the globe, and sailing, some of you, for several months on the the Jenivere, you drew closer to your destination of Eleder, the capital of Sargava. Each of you has his own reasons for traveling to the former Chelaxian colony. You’ve gotten to know each other, at least in passing, while on the long journey.
You all sat down to eat dinner with Captain Kovack. That is the last thing you remember before waking up groggily on an island somewhere in the ocean, with nothing but horizon to your north and jungle to your south as sea scorpions tried to turn you into a meal.
Aerys, Gelik, Ishirou, Jask, & Sasha were lying unconcious several feet away. Yet, none of the crew, including Captain Kovack or his First Mate, Alton, are present. Also missing is the Varisian scholar Ieana. Some of your armor and weapons lay in a neat pile near you. There is food & fresh water for maybe a couple of days. But other than that, none of your other gear is present.
Bootprints in the sand led to & from the water to the beach. And furrows led from the water to your bodies. And what looks to be the wreck of the Jeniver is listing to port, partially submerged, the hull a gaping ruin, as she leans against a jagged cliffside among several sharp rocks.
This is where you found yourselves. Low on supplies. Very hot. Very humid. And no hope of rescue in the immediate viscinity.
