The Fugitive, a Bouvaldian prisoner transport cut through ocean waters choppy with the coming storm when the watcher in the crow’s nest called out a barge warning. Captain Crof cursed his luck and the weather, ordering half sails while directing the course between the shore and the barge. The Captain hoped that the night would hide his maneuver and prevent the criminals aboard the barge from recognizing his ship, at least until they had passed. Captain Crof ordered his crew to work in silence, a tension settling over the ship. Depending on who was aboard the barge was the luck that would determine if The Fugitive would sail quietly by in the night or enter into battle with unknown foes. Captian Crof put his second in command, first mate Draib on the wheel, while he paced the deck of his ship calling out quiet words of encouragement to his battle hardened crew members.
Suddenly a dozen strange creatures, hunched-over wretches with long, pliable arms like tentacles capped with five spiny claws, appeared around the surprised crew. One of the creatures seized Captain Crof by the neck, the crew similarly attacked Alas luck was not with the crew of The Fugitive this night.
The battle would continue
for some minutes before the crew was defeated and the summoned creatures disappeared.
The ship sailed on, taken by ocean current before wrecking itself on a volcano torn beachhead. The wreck freed a number of prisoners while
several others drown. The survivors of
