The Redemption has left the Neck and sails outward toward the strange designations leading deeper into the Wyld waters west of known civilization. As the water dominates the horizon the crew start to seek a safe place for Sellis Varl’s tribe to wait while those more inclined to adventure stay to face the dangers lying in wait.
It is not long before danger finds them first. The crew is soon assaulted by a huge Wyld beast stalking beneath the waves. The creature is nearly have as long as The Redemption herself, a narrow collection of spiny limbs and a jagged beak. Though it swims its features resemble some twisted breed of bird with only the barest piscine details decorating it. It immediately tries to shake the vessel while it patiently decided which of the scrambling sailors it wishes to consume.
Vanquo,Sellis Varl,Landi Rowe,Zidell and Ruby Bloome all rushed to action to dispatch this monster. It speared its vicious beak and spewed noxious vomit across crew and vessel. Though it wounded some of the mortals who worked upon The Redemption but was no match for the Exalted heroes. They laid its warped corpse to a watery grave and sped forth toward any safe patch of land in hopes of protecting those aboard who could not protect themselves.
Landi Rowe took a break from her humble workshop to treat the wounded and mend the superficial damages to the ship. As the Twilight craftswoman mended those who required it the keen eyes of Zidell spotted the very thing The Redemption’s crew sought..land. An away team was assembled at once to investigate. The Necessity was boarded and mid way to the island attacked by strange creatures who were fish and not fish. Those versed in tales of the West knew them to be Pelagials. They attacked and attempted to drive away the Exalts but could not deny the Chosen.
Tracks of armored creatures littered the treeline and the beach. Memories of this mysterious place rumbled in the backs of the minds of Landi Rowe and Zidell. The map that guided them revealed this to be the point of destination but this place was reached far sooner then should be possible. Strange things were in the works of this there was no denying. The Necessity was sent back to retrieve the other Exalts so this place could be more thoroughly investigated. Ragara Kashun was amongst those gathered.
Not long inside the jungle the crew was attacked by a group of beastmen bred from wild birds. They lashed at the intruders with spears and poisoned arrows. Not enough to foil the Chosen but proof of curious lingerings in this place not in the place it should be. No sign of the Shield of the West yet but our bloodied heroes press on.
