"Perhaps Melnibonéan? Ruins of their work have been found in that province." Althoth mutters, overhearing Alasdair.


Althoth sneers as the rescue unfolds.  These ones are weak. Mercy clouds their vision.

Did none of them wonder how the small boat moves while they do not? Currents they would say.


Althoth moves to the railing to look down at the Oinishman.

So far, I'm going with snob, I was originally tempted to throw in about drugs but then somehow it didn't fit into my post. I'm mainly still introducing Mi'il though I've set up about sth happening to her with the other 2 PCs.

Just then Alasdair makes a rare appearance on board. "Gerhard" he calls, clutching an old Grimoire in his hands. "Come see this", the serious-minded guild-man says, and shows Gerhard a certain passage...

"Thirteen times, the waves to the Chaos-Star's lair;
And the Blood-Star lies there.
Circles within circles, and eight-pointed signs.
Seven times seven where the elder ones yet dwell.
Twelve times twelve demon-warriors from hell.
But the Blood-Star lies there.
And the hero fair will the Mad Seas dare;
And sail for the Blood-Star's isle.

On a mournful victory day,
The Chaos-Star shall arise anew."


"It makes little sense to me Gerhard", he continues, "But no doubt it refers to our quest. This is a tome from Vilmir by providence. Many centuries old. But the words were not written by Vilmirians."


The captain meanwhile, eyes the sea-stranded Oinishman. "I have no love for the brutes of Oin. Yet this man looks as if he has suffered. Drop a rope. Hoist him up."


"Dooooom!" the Oinishman intones, and licks his wind-cracked lips, as he watches the rope thrown down into his catamaran.

And so the ship sailed on...

The next two days proved uneventful, and the winds held up, guiding Fate's Plight toward the deep harbor of Menii of the Purple Towns.

Old Bhroo complained to anyone that would listen that his bats were stressed and agitated by something or someone on board. Little could he know that Altoth/Zylonion was the cause of this agitation.

"Bad Omen" he would mouth over and over again.

Alasdair meanwhile spent his time poring over maps and texts provided by the guild below deck.

The Melnibonean kept mostly to herself, sipping dreamwine by day, and doing gods-of-chaos-knew-what by night.

Ebrin, though still enamored with Mi'il, got along quite well with Gerhard and Joleri, and spent time with them when he wasn't helping his father.

Ivor for his part, learned the hard way that sea-travel wasn't for him. Green-skinned and miserable, he spent most of his time hacking his bile into the uncaring sea.

-----------

On the third day of the voyage, the winds stopped blowing, and the ship was becalmed. Captain Sharlto cursed aloud. Only Ivor was happy now.

Boredom set in amidst the crew, as all waited for the winds to pick up again. By early evening, they still had not. It seemed Gerhard's earlier words about the Melnibonean women proved prophetic for them all now..."adrift on waves of ennui"

A forty foot Oinish catamaran was spotted starboard. As it came into view, a lone man could be seen squatting on deck, gesticulating wildly. The catamaran was drifting aimlessly, and no crew aside from the lone figure could be seen. Usually, an Oinish catamaran sported at least a half-dozen Oinish "sailors".

"Doom! Doom! Doom! Doooom!!" the emaciated, pug-nosed Oinishman cried out.

"Bad Omen", said Old Bhroo and Dolorous Werrus in unison.

"Are we fishing him out, Cap'n?" came the voice of another sailor.

Well, I thought that being a Melnibonean, I'm supposed to be a snob or else on drugs, am I not?  :wink:

Seeing the ebbs and flows of Althoth's activity, Gerhard could but wonder how long the man would last. Yesterday, he had painted visions of the arcane, of realms beyond thousandfold veils, and things from beyond the scope of imagination, and today, his wits were but his and his alone. He knew that state from the elderly - one day vibrant and full of lore and hard-earned wisdom, the other a vacant husk. Perhaps the sea had affected him more than he let on?
The Melnibonean, for all her trim and cultured charm, was adrift on the waves of ennui, and he soon lost interest. The mage liked women witty and saucy, and cheeky and irreverent, vibrant and vital. Shrugging, he joined Joleri and Ebrin in a none-too-serious discussion on how they would outrace the Purple-Towners on the Regatta, so decisively and punishingly that - after recovering from the wreckage of their fleet - they'd forbid foreigners from taking part ever again.
"Never going to happen" the boy laughed.
"This girl is going to make it happen!" was the raucous reply.
"Trust her on this one - and check your boat's bottom for suddenly appearing holes" Gerhard advised, receiving a jab in the ribs as reward for betraying such vital secrets. Laughs were had. There would be enough serious days ahead, of that he was sure. But not today.

Thanks for the updates on attempts. Haven't been very active here lately (not entirely by choice).

Major bug fixes will be looked into but anything minor will be left due to a coding rebuild in work that will refactor and change any issues that are currently going on here.

I ask for a little bit of patience for a big payoff!
