From Griffin’s Log:
In our continuing search for the Crystal Pool, we landed on an island to taken on fesh water, and to scout around for clues. Our scouts soon found evidence that others had been here recently, and possibly had come to a bad end, leaving their treasure behind. With Ashalla, Rosemary, and Hawkeye, (plus a handful of crewmembers), I pressed on toward the center of the island. We soon found the tattered bodies of some other Heritor’s crew, and a circle of large eggs. Approaching the eggs from the opposite direction was the crew of the Heritor Fortrwyn (all pointed-eared demons, so far as I could tell). We had had a brush with them in the abandoned Drichean mines recently. Whle I was somewhat uneasy about the ggs, some of which were rocking as though hatching were imminent, the area appeared to be rich in treasure, so we pressed forward. Ashalla and half the landing party bore to the left, toward a pond where the signs indicated that a treasure might be found. Ashalla imbued Bluff the Chantyman with waterbreathing so that he was able to recover the treasure from the pond. Another was found in a clump of dense foliage. Meanwhile, I found myself in a scuffle with Fortrwyn’s demon crewmembers in the very center of the circle of eggs. A blast of demon magic warped my sword, although I still used it to split one of the demons.
Fortunately, my Heritage makes swords somewhat optional, and I felled a demon or two with hurled rocks. (The situation was somewhat confused...) At some point during this fight, one of the eggs cracked, spilling a baby monarch into the middle of the melee. It was felled by one of the demons, but gave out a horrifying scream as it died. It was a little later when we found out what that scream had portended...
The melee in the middle of the egg circle continued for some time. Two of my crewmen had pinned the demon lord against a rock, and I stepped in to finish him with my sword. The bent blade twisted in my hand, though, and Fortrwyn dealt me a mighty blow. I stepped back for a moment to recover. Not wishing to trust the sword again, I hefted a head-sized rock.
Fortrwyn struck down another of my crew, leaving me an opening. With a final effort, I struck him with the hurled rock and he fell.
Meanwhile, another egg had hatched, which would have been problem enough...but the death cry of the first hatchling had attracted the attention of a fully mature monarch, a monster like few I had seen before. I calld out to the remaining crew members to follow me in a bid to seek safety by heading back to the beach (and our ship) by another route. Happily, no other crewmen were lost, but only five of the party that had set out that morning gathered again at the ship as night fell...
<Here ends the excerpt from Griffin’s log>
From the player point of view, here was an overview of the table:
and a closer view of the zone where my crew was engaged. You can see that Griffin simplified the situation somewhat in his logbook sketch.
I did end up with three treasures as the game ended, although Chris’s Fortrwyn and crew managed to make off with the central treasure from our egg circle; I always had something even more pressing to do that to try to drop his treasure-carrying crewman with the usual rock.
I've acquired a newly repaired TV and a regiment of Mantic Dwarf Shieldbreakers.
I've also acquired some preemptive envy for whoever hits the current Mega Millions jackpot, because it's sitting at $900 million, with a $513 million cash option. Unless that person who hits the jackpot is me, and then you can all envy me. I'll share the wealth by financing a run of the old Rose triad...
