Our adventurers, Boris the half-orc (dire gnome?) bard, Seebo Garrick the albino (actual) gnome fighter, Maud the lady of high society and spy and Belemir the half elf inquisitor of Abadar have embarked on the ill fated last voyage of the Sea Bitch.
After a giant crab crawled upon the deck, and being not at all intimidated by Belemir, it was distracted by a brightly dressed half orc after missing with both its mighty claws.
Belemir, using one of the ship’s docking hooks and rope took advantage of the situation as the gallant adventurers beat the crab senseless. Crab chowder was enjoyed by all, and Belemir having gained the achievement Krab King Killer now has a +1 to all attacks vs crustaceans.
The crab chowder, though delicious, was poisoned!
Boris and Maud were rudely awakened by the native eurypterids taking exploratory nips at their feet for lunch. However, this ultimately proved to be their undoing as our illustrious heroes curbstomped the offending lobsters into the ground. Boris heroically tore off the stinger of one eurypterid and hurled it through the brain-pan of another, saving the party from (un)certain death.
Boris gains the ability to sing “Rock Lobster” as a spell like ability, granting:
School evocation [sonic]; Level bard 1
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one creature
Duration instantaneous; see text
Saving Throw Fortitude partial (see text); Spell Resistance yes
You unleash a powerful song, targeting a single crustacean. The target is dazed for 1 round and takes 1d6 points of sonic damage per two caster levels (maximum 5d6). A successful save negates the daze effect and halves the damage.
The party ventured forth, and found a pool of water to restock their dwindling supplies near their landfall and they set up camp for the evening. It is now night, there are ghosts in the surf and predators stalking the night…..
