Isle of empty eyes part 2

The officers of the Lucky Albatross begin the process of “taming” the island of empty eyes. They are also searching for the ancient ruins of Sumitha, so they can acquire the Immortal Dreamstone and return it to Bikendi Otongo in hopes it will put his spirit to rest so he will quit haunting the remains of the fortress.

The first signs of danger came when they were set upon by six large harpy/cyclops crossbreeds known as the daughters of Imerta. The daughters would ambush passing ships and were a menace to anything they think they can defeat. The next encounter was what appeared to be a giant corral with beams made from whole trees. Obviously made to hold the triceratops that were charging the party as they were noticed. They were able to overcome the triceratops, and Rik noticed the surprisingly aggressive behavior. He hypothesized that this behavior was probably caused by extremely aggressive hunters and they should expect aggressive behavior from creature that might normally be docile. As they traveled at the top of the cliffs on the northern coast of the island they could see what they assume is the ruins of Sumitha, but it was getting late in the day and the ruins were a full day or more of work best started fresh and possibly scouted a bit. When they got to the northeast corner of the island, the terrain became more swampy and they noticed a few hundred yards ahead a small (actually medium sized) dragonlike creature being stealthily approached by the largest snake any of them had ever seen. With their quick wits and heroic action they were able to save the bronze dragon from the gigantic anaconda. When the battle was over Rik was able to bond with the dragon, with help from a ring bestowed upon Rik by their ships Mascot Rotgut the albatross (who Rik thought he saw devour his previous companion eagle). They were then approached by a much larger bronze dragon named Jeriko. Jeriko informed the party that this dragon looking creature was an actual dragon born from a mother who was poisoned to death during labor forcing him to be born early stunting his mental and physical growth and capability. Jeriko asked Rik to take care of his son. He would serve him as well if not better than any animal companion he would ever find. He was very friendly, energetic and loyal. Jeriko needed a nap and someone needed to pay his son daily attention. If you do it well you may be rewarded if you sacrifice my son there may be severe consequences. The next morning Desnamona gathered they officers together because she had had a strange dream that she thought may have been more than a dream.

“I was in they body of a bird. I think it may have been Rotgut, but can’t be sure.I was flyinq away from our new friend Ralphus. I was completely confident he would never catch me. I was flying along a cliffside as I turned extremely close to the cliffs, Ralphus flew into the cliff only instead of crashing he disappeared into the cliff for a moment before flying back out of the cliff as if it wasn’t solid”. I don’t know if it means anything but I felt you might be interested.

And that is all,
