26th Sarenith, 4712 AR
The next morning, the pirates begin searching the island for their compatriots. Seeing grindylows playing in the surf off the western coast of the island, they row out to investigate. Their they discover an underwater entrance into Riptide Cove, home of the grindylows and apparent location of their crewmates.
Moving through the caves is difficult due to the submerged caverns, razor-laced traps, and vicious grindlows and their minions. Fighting every step through the caverns, they finally come upon the main hall of the Cove, where they find the Brinebrood Queen and her mutant son, The Whale.
They have to act fast during the battle as Sandara and Jack are hanging from the ceiling of the cavern. That is, until the Queen cuts them loose to sink below the waves and into the hungry claws of lacedons in the deep water below.
The fight takes it’s toll on our pirates, and rescuing their comrades proves to be as hazardous as the battle. But they do succeed and are able to return to the Man’s Promise with the needed water, plus a suprise mutiny against Plugg & Scourge. With the help of their friendly crewmates, the two officers surrender and are marooned on Bonewrack Isle with the ghouls and other creatures. But the heroes promise one day to return and finish off their former tormentors.
