Location description[edit | edit source]

Sullen lights glow green at the jetty's edge. Behind the port buildings, the island is is knee-deep in ash. There are ruins here and there, of houses destroyed by fire. Far above, the mountain's top flickers red: just for an instant.

"Hello, hello. I have zomething for you -"A cowled and buzzing shape clasps your elbow. It whispers in your ear. Its breath is lava and old brass, and a queasy vibration through you were its gloved appendage has taken hold. You have what you came for. Back aboard ship, quickly Your vision blurs. Perhaps you are unwell.

"Hello, my zoulless friend."
Put a blemmigan ashore

Mushroom songs
Dig among the ruins

Perhaps the villagers left valuables behind. You could pick over their remains to see what you might find. (You ghoul.)

Failed event

The creases of your palms are grey with ash. Your crew coughs incessantly. You have found nothing but ruined fields and empty shelves.

Rare failed event (50%)
A diary of dreams

One wall of a barn still stands. Someone has gouged words into it, in one of the lesser alphabets of Hell - an account of a dream of the Usurper Sun, of its gear-teeth sunk deep into the roots of time, of its servants in robes of gold and amber, of its beauty and its lies.

Successful event
A crimson cache

In a dry well choked with ash behind a shattered farmhouse, you find two casks of zzoup. Emergency supplies, or hidden treasure? No one will ever return for them.

Rare successful event (50%)
A cellarful of bones

How many of them died down here? You could bury them in the ash, but they're so choked and jumbled, you might as well leave them here below. The whole island is the unholiest imaginable ground, anyway. At least you have souvenirs. Three grinning skulls and a carven crooked-cross.
