Still stranded on Smuggler's Shiv

The kids are still stranded on Smuggler’s Shiv. It has been a long 5 days, but they’ve managed to acquire the island map, and make a few of their fellow castaways friendly.

In order to run the adventure I created a few objects to help out.

First off we have a paper clock, this helps me keep track of the hour by hour effects such as heat, wandering monsters, and disease, the kids also get a kick out of it.

I also made a wrecked ship out of an old Cheez-It box. Being there are about 20 wrecked ships on the island, I figured this would come in handy.

For this adventure I’ve been using a combination of 3 source books, and the adventure book.

My eldest is having a kick playing the parties Alchemist, and blowing up things which his bombs.

My axe, what have you done with my axe!

   Previous bits of the story

With no time to dwell on his pain, Asuck feels his body being dragged across the wet sand. Using all the strength he can muster, he catches a glimpse of what caused the initial pain, and what is now dragging his large body across the beach.

As Asuck eyes begin to focus on the shadowy figure, nausea and disorientation begins to over take his senses. Doing what any Orcish warrior would do in such circumstances, Asuck reaches for his trusty Great Axe, but his fingers find no such weapon. Rage in his voice he screams, “My axe, what have you done with my axe!”.  Dwelling on the sickness no longer Asuck manages to overpower his capture and slips away.

Now, standing face to face he plots his attack, but then a voice from the west echos across the beach, Sea scorpions!
