Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies
Notes - Episode 2
- Zora and Willem go to Abydos Keep to acquire the key to Vanlo’s fetter while Roderigo stays to watch over the still-unconscious Sebastian.
- Willem detonates a rudimentary explosive to attract attention while Zora covertly enters Captain Rigaldow’s quarters.
- Zora finds the key, as well as a report regarding a newly-discovered underground ruin of Kroyu origin.
- The ruin is located at the tip of Abydos’s northern peninsula. It was discovered when a huge stone from the Sky of Stones penetrated the island’s cloud cover and broke off the tip of the peninsula, exposing several chambers to the open air for the first time in over 300 years.
- The report states that there have been casualties due to traps. It appears that an additional skyship will be accompanying the usual monthly resupply ship (tomorrow), carrying soldiers and scholars to secure the ruins and discover its secrets.
- Zora and Willem ambush a Falcon patrol en route to the village in order to resupply, and are currently waiting to ambush a second patrol, hoping that news of the first patrol’s disappearance will not yet have reached the keep (or at least the second patrol).
- The group is currently planning to head to the ruins under cover of darkness, investigate the ruins, then tomorrow stage a revolt and takeover of the resupply skyship in order to escape the island.
