Session One – Shipwreck

You all woke up on a foreign tropical shore among the debris of your ship and with memories of a fierce snowstorm the previous night. Obviously, some deviltry must have been involved.


You salvaged what you could find and worked hard to make makeshift weapons. Also, some time was spent foraging and trying to find drinkable water. Then you took on venturing into the jungle towering next to the beach. As it was, the jungle turned out to be a vast, insect ridden swamp.


Traveling along the many waterways you had a run-in with a huge crocodile and in the end, met two Pumpkin-Head Scarecrows near a dead body and a run-down swamp boat. An intense battle followed, where you got to try various combat maneuvers and even managed a fumble where the Ernie the Elf tried to spear a Scarecrow grappling with Sigurd, with the result that the spear ran through the straw-man and into the face of the player character. Sigurd rolled good, and managed to dodge, but still got a nasty wound in the cheek. The elf also missed his Fear check and panicked, jumping into the boat and abandoning his buddies to do the battle alone for a while.


We left off, when you slowly left the shore, staking out into the unknown in the half-rotten swamp boat, after having defeated the Scarecrows and throwing their pumpkin heads into the swamp.
