Battle for the Blue Nixie
Thursday October 26, The Blue Nixie, Essanos Harbor
The battle rages across the deck of the Blue Nixie while a fire rages in the stateroom cabin, apparently started by the rogues that held the ship! The nasty blue-furred Coyle spell-caster that was previously stuck on the cargo net has turned into a body of water and splashed down into the hold. Arn engages some of the remaining foes on deck while Silver and Moonscar move to put the fire out. Valinya and Seeker begin moving toward the hold where new wisps of smoke can be seen.
Down below, the blue-furred Coyle is retreating to the bilge while several other Human and Coyle pirates are starting small fires and releasing what appears to be an entire cargo of contraband animals. One large beast, a dangerous cross between a spider and scorpion has already begun to feast on one of the Coyles it has caught. The fires spread quickly throughout the hold and the Coyle spell-caster disappears under a door. Fortis does his best to follow but cannot keep up with his liquid foe and looses him in the bilge.
Valinya uses her magic to help move some water and Arn to where they can be more useful while Moonscar dumps one of the troughs of water from the deck down onto the conflagration. Arn, Seeker and Silver engage the ravenous beast and are able to dispatch of it without much trouble. The fire is put out and the remainder of the seamen onboard quickly give up the fight. They are all gathered up and taken to the previously burnt stateroom and guarded by Seeker while Fortis, Moonscar and Valinya begin a search of the other cabins. Arn searches the hold and sailors quarters below-decks and Silver does a flyby around the ship looking for any sailors that fled and watching for any other incoming trouble.
For some reason, I forgot to take any screen shots of the action in this episode. Doh. This session was short due to some technical difficulties and consisted of pretty much just the ending of a fight scene. More action to come on the next Continuing Story between sessions.
