This morning I woke up and after a light breakfast on the boat I headed off to the seamstress to see if my clothes were ready. She had everything ready for me, I gave her a wrapped package of dried fish, and ten gold. I make sure I have enough supplies to last Ka and I a week’s journey to Finger.
First day out—-I finish reading the chapter in my book and spend the rest of the day working on training Ka to down.
Second day out—-I study the first spell in the book Inky Cloud. I get close but I don’t master it.
Third day out—-I study the second spell in the book Survival Instants. This was hard to understand, it’s going to take some time to get this spell.
Fourth day out—-The wind was so strong today that Knives and I both stayed in our cabins sick.
Fifth day out—-The wind has died down today, but there is a scraping sound coming from the bottom of the boat. John went down to investigate. The captain asked Knives and I to go down with John to deal with the problem. There were sets of claws poking through the bottom, attacking them got them to drop out but with out doing lethal damage they just reappeared. Knives asked the captain to rake the bottom of the boat. John was attacking the claws and I monitoring the guys patching up holes and pumping out the water.
A woman is seen swimming towards the boat screaming for help. We are suspicious of her, Knives fires a cross bow at her head, she screams and swims away. I cast Summon Nature’s Alley II and summon two octopi to attack the sirens under the boat. John sends a net down across the bottom, he caught two of the sirens and an octopus. After throwing the octopus back and one of the sirens jumped out the guys tied up the other siren and started to question the siren.
Things didn’t go well so we just started “fishing” for sirens and killing them as we hulled them on board. The sirens catch on and we bring up the two octopi. The guys hatched a plot to attach themselves to the chain and go under with weapons ready to attack those still under the boat. When they came up Knives was unconscious and there were two sirens in the net. John untied himself and went to help Knives while Ka and I attempted to kill the siren that was still alive in the net.
We looted the sirens and got four javelins and nine sets of seaweed armor. As we loot a mist appeared around it, but the boat sealed out and the sirens didn’t attack us. The captain said because of this we had to tack an extra day onto our journey.
Sixth day out—It dawned a nice day. John and Knives were on deck with their books reading/studying. I spent the day on deck working on the down trick with Ka.
Seventh day out—Today was rain. I spent the day inside in my room. I didn’t get far in my studies, I don’t like being cooped up inside all day. I spent a good deal of the day dreaming of being out in the sun.
Eight day out—Wind died down today, we might be out at sea a bit longer. I worked on the down trick with Ka today on deck. Knives studied on deck, and John worked with the crew.
Ninth day out—Still no wind and John spent time hanging out with the crew while they waited for the wind to pick up. Knives could still be found on deck studying. Ka and I spent the day on deck working on the new trick.
Tenth day out—Today there is wind! The captain says we’ll reach Finger tomorrow. John worked with the crew, Knives trained and Ka and I kept working on down.
Eleventh day out—Finger is in sight. I finish teaching Ka down about the time we reached the port of Baylet. Finger is a large island, much bigger than Armita. There are mountains that look similar to volcanos, that are surrounded in mist. The land appears to be jungles and marsh. Ka and I are excited about the jungles.
