”I agree with Khazmia. The people of Farshore should not be condemned to live under this creatures thumb. But if the beast can be reasoned with I prefer a peaceful solution. The papers you found, did they go into any more detail about the Lords of Dread? Or about the Crimson Fleet and their attack on Farshore?”

"I'm afraid not," Lavinia replies to Linah, shaking her head. "This was the most explicit of the notes."

Ooops, missed Khaz's last post...
"I think we can trust the beast based on the pirates' notes. They clearly reached an accommodation. I suppose if you can kill it, that might be the best solution, but if Emraag's reputation can be believed at all, he may be beyond even your capabilities."

Zstelian nods to Lavinia. ”Send word to those other settlements that stood with Farshore against the pirates. Seeing the beast placated and the Lords of Dread destroyed benefits them too. Any aid or intelligence they can provide could make the difference. We should go prepared for a fight. There’s no telling what kind of agreement the pirates made with the beast.”

"Was we lucky enough to take any of the buggers alive, they might be persuaded to tell us", interjects Sekathral. "If not, not, and we'd better weigh anchor anyway. No sense sitting around"

"While I might not like to add to this creatures influence it might be the lesser of two evils in the short run. Perhaps it can be persuaded to abandon the pirates side."

Before leaving Linah will go to the temple and place Vanthus ring (the ring of protection +2) on the altar. She will pray to Sarenrae to clense the ring and then cast bless on it to sever the ties from it's former owner and make it a tool for good.

Anything from our knowledge rolls, Motte?

Kyson looks over the maps and the stories told of Emraag.

"Why can't ships just sail around the Cove? Isn't the ocean really big?" Kyson ponders more. "Also, if this dragon turtle has been receiving tribute for a long time, then this is probably LOTS of tribute there. I mean, that turtle might be rich rich."

Kyson ponders, looking at Lavinia.

"What kinds of tribute does it require? What does it have and what does it want?"

Sorry. With your roll, you can just look up dragon turtles...

"My parents expected to return here, and they left some valuable jewelry and artwork. I'm hoping that will be sufficient for the Glutton. Some ships do escape the creature's wrath -- obviously neither the Sea Wyvern nor the Blue Nixie encountered it -- but not all of them. I don't think it's worth the risk."

Before leaving, Sekathral will get together with Zstelian and Kyson, mining their respective spheres of knowledge mixed metaphor? for a way of dealing with the monster should the negotiations fail.

Are you asking me for anything? I figure Kyson can tell all of you all about dragon turtles, so let me know any preparations you want to make before you go.

As you make your preparations, Lavinia brings you a set of long reed pipes.

"We were able to get this sea skirl from the native tribes. They produce a strange kind of drowned music if played with one end in water that the Olman say should attract sea creatures. Hopefully Emraag will hear it and be interested enough to come talk."

Linah gives the reed pipes a worried look. "Are we going to encounter the dragon turtle while on the boat? I was hoping that we would be able to have the parlay on land."

Zstelian nods in agreement with the paladin. "Meeting on the open water gives the beast a big advantage if we've got to fight him."

Kyson rubs his chin.

"What are the advantages to letting Emraag live as opposed to giving him the chance to experience Sarenarae's conversion? We like that it preys upon pirates, we don't want it to prey upon good peoples like us."

Kyson still doesn't know what to do, still wants to discuss.

"Is it possible that the turtle wants something more than just treasure? We have access..." Kyson's eyes flicker to Khaz and her ability to teleport "...access to many more markets and might fight something it wants more than treasure. Like some fatted calves to eat. Or shiny umbrellas. Or something."

Kyson really has no idea what a dragon turtle might crave.

"Do you think there is something that we could give it that would bend it to attacking pirates and leaving us alone? Something more valuable...like it's life?"

"Do not use her name like that, Kyson! Sarenrae is not a goddess of death!" Linah protests loudly. After taking a moment to calm down, she continues. "The advantages of buying off the creature is that we spill no blood. I am not keen on the idea of subjecting Farshore to owe the beast a regular tribute, but it might buy us some time and help us device a plan on how to deal with the threat."

"You can try to approach him on land. I suspect you will have to land elsewhere and walk to the cove though," Lavinia says.

Sekathral was thinking about making some kind of giant turtle-fishing device, which will no doubt be as effective in practice as any other scheme he's come up with ;)

Kaz raises an eyebrow at Linah's outburst. "We all understand that The Good Lady would prefer to redeem rather than remove said creatures, but should he prove difficult to reeducate, it may come down to his death. We should decide now, how many of our ships, with how many of our people, is he allowed to eat before we must serve a more permanent redemption upon his mortal being?"

Kyson looks at Linah, wondering if he wants to question the lady's direction. He grits his teeth, remembering a passage from his scribings long ago.

"Linah, if this turtle would protect or deal with evil, then giving it tribute just encourages it further. We should entreat it to enjoy the sunshine or give it the blade."

Kyson has nothing more for Farshore now that Khaz has chimed in.

”I am sorry that I snapped at you, Kyson. I do not disagree that Emraag should be stopped. I am how ever deeply offended by the notion that conversion to our lady’s light could ever come at the tip of the blade. As to whether or not to try and buy this creatures allegiance I would prefer to resolve the issue peacefully. I understand that our hands might be forced to strike but I will not sail to the creature’s lair with the intention to kill. I am not an assassin.”
