Taradain, I'm so happy to see that you have survived. Most the others are in the city dealing with the riots. Gharis, Fortunato, Trark, and Timos have all been captured by the slavers, we were hoping to find them, along with you of course. Have you seen any of them? Will you help us free the others?

Tiberius is relieved that someone he knows has survived but very anxious that he has not seen the others. He urges Larius to help him search the other rooms and encourages Taradain and any others willing to join with them.

Gharis, Trark,Marius,Turano, and Tatjana were with me deep in the hold of this ship Timos was not he may still be in the city but if there are riots who knows. there were many of us in the hold most of us chained to the floor. Yesterday a beast with many heads broke through the ship inot the hold and ate a few of us. I honestly did not know which to be more frightened of the beast or the slavers. at any rate the beat did enough damage that we were able to free ourselves sort of as o motion to our chains Trark made me promise to go to the vorloi ship as soon as possible but if you believe he is on this ship then i will join you in finding him.

(Note that Taradain does not, but Tiberius knows Timos has escaped the slavers trap. He was the one who told you Taradain and Tatjana had been captured. Fortunato instead disappeared before and Taradain has not seen him. Trark and Marius too are searching for him on the deck below).
No problem, often I need a recap too :-)

Larius, we best keep searching for Fortunato. Taradain, if you think the others can make it to the Vorloi ship without your help I would like your help. I was mistaken about those taken, Timos did escape the slavers clutches, but the others still need to be freed.

Act 3 - New roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


While you are still talking, Trark and Marius comes up from the deck below, and the orc has Fortunato, unconscious, on his shoulder.
"He should be well - Trark says - but I had to stun him because he kept telling he could not leave his friend.. maybe they gave him some drug. We should now go up and reach for the Vorloi ship. Happy to see you, Tiberius!"
Marius and Larius nods to each other and clasp their arms.
You feel relieved for just an instant, then from the decks above you hear a lot of people screaming in terror and panic...

To Trark and Marius Was there anyone else that could have been with Fortunato that could be this friend?

What is going on on the deck?
Tiberius carefully takes a look to see what is causing the panic.

Act 3 - New roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


You go up and immediately see that the main deck is in utter chaos, with people fleeing everywhere, many even throwing themselves overboard into the dark, cold night sea. Mikel appears before you, a sickened, terrified expression on his face as if he just saw Death itself. He also seems weak and wounded, even if you cannot see any wound on his body.
"Undead! - he just says - Run to The Stefania", then he turns, sword in hand, to face what you now can clearly see. Two sailors, with terrible wounds on their face and chest that obviously have been the death of them, walking toward you, arms poised to grasp at you, a terrible dark void in their eyes. Zombies, as the one you fought in the sewers a tendays ago!

Act 3 - New roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


There is too much chaos on the deck, with people running everywhere, to pinpoint who is controlling the zombies, yet you notice a man, finely dressed in bright colors, with a large hat, walking calmly on the deck without even a drawn sword.
He is looking around with apparent friendship and calm. While you are observing him, he looks at a Vorloi man and smiles to him. The man immediately drop his sword and smiles back to the finely dressed man, as if he was an old friend.
The scene creeps you out even if you do not exactly know why, and you realize you really do not want the finely dressed man looking at you.
Mikel in the meantime face the zombies, splitting the skull of one of them in half. The creature drops down, now apparently really dead. Mikel keeps telling you to run to The Stefania.

Act 3 - New Roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


You soon understand that the presence of the undead and the strange man is fast turning your boarding into a rout, at least on the Vorloi side. Your men and sailors are running toward The Stefania as fast as they can, and it seems there isn't any kind of defensive line anymore. You see Trark, Marius, Tatjana, Turano, the adventurers, Mikel and Gharis fight for their lives against sailors of The Black Octopus and undead.
You also see that Carla and many other girls have been surrounded by enemies.
A hand grabs the leg of Taradain while she is running toward The Stefania. The girl turns and sees that a zombie sailor, with his throat open, is holding her, and now trying to bite her calf.
Tiberius rushes to her aid, but a live sailor tries to hit him with his cutlass, fortunately missing the young thyatian completely. The sailor however rises his cutlass to strike again..

Tiberius tries to elude the sailor and rush to Taradain's aid, pulling out his sword as he goes, striking the zombie as he gets there. If he must, he counterattacks the sailor while failing back to aid Taradain.

Taradain stomps on the zombies head until it stops moving and then moves to deal with the necromancer using chains to choke the man out out

Act 3 - New Roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


Taradain kicks the zombie hard, sending it back and freeing herself. A well placed hit with the chains then destroy the zombie's skull, putting him down. She cannot see the necromancer in the chaos, however.
Tiberius tries to hit the sailor but only manages to nick him, however the sailor is clumsy in his following strike, and Tiberius can easily dodge and push him away, then people running around take him away from the young thyatian.
Your allies, lead by Mikel and the adventurers, are retreating back to The Stefania, keeping the enemy sailors and undead at bay, but then you realize a group of enemy sailors is pushing Carla and most of the other girls back toward the stern hatch.
And, quite out of your reach and with many enemies in-between, you also see that the fine dressed man is talking with Trark and Marius, who still have the unconscious Fortunato with them. Trark and Marius smile at the man as at an old friend..

Act 3 - New Roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


Mostly because the crew of The Black Octopus does not care much about a little girl, you manage to arrive near to the fine dressed man. He smiles at you and immediately you think he is so beautiful, and you really want his friendship.
Only with a great mental struggle you manage to drive this sensation away.
You try to scratch the man but he doesn't even move a hand to defend himself. Your nails do not leave a trace on him, as you were hitting a hard stone. You try to attack him with your chains, but you obtain the same result.
Trark and Marius grab you, trying to stop and immobilize you.
"Why you are doing this, Taradain? - Trark says, distressed - The captain is our friend!"
"You are such a special girl - the man says, and you have to struggle again to push away the powerful charme of his voice - you should remain here in my ship with your friends".

Tiberius goes to help Carla and the other girls. He goes up to the group of sailors and tries to smack one from behind with the flat of his sword and lead them all away. At the same time he yells at the the girls Run to the Stefania.

Act 3 - New Roads
Scene I - On The Black Octopus, Night of the 13th Day (Thaumont, 13th 990 AC)


Tiberius knock a sailor down, and Larius and others help him to create enough confusion to let some of the girls escape. The enemy sailors try to fight back, but are repelled for now.
Mikel and the others advance too, trying to reach Taradain. She looks around for a lantern, run to grab the nearest one and tries to throw it at the fine dressed man, but Trark and Marius grab at her, crying not to hurt their friend. Several sea birds attack too the Vorloi men, forcing them to retreat a bit.
The Torenescu men are almost completely back on their ship. "We must return to The Stefania!" Mikel cries again.
