Synopsis:
The Band of the Wolf continues their fight against giant skeletons inside the The River of Death of Elegy Island when a strange and fast zombie bull rushes Dio into the Captain’s cabin of The Crowe. Without the capacity to speak, he draws a broken sable and shows Dio that he was the one who damaged the inscription on the wall and the Captain’s Ring. Dio fixes the zombies broken tongue with a harm spell placing his hand inside the zombie’s mouth. Then Zombie is then able to explain that he was the original captain of the ship, that he wants to break the curse but that he failed. He tried to destroy the ring and it didn’t work. " The Curse is a Ring around the Ship, and only the Death Kahuna can see it. "

The Zombie Captain gives Raizak an old napkin with a drawing of the complete Captain’s Ring. Raizak gives Frutumal the drawing ad Frutumal uses it to cast a Locate Object spell and Daero pulls a teeth from the giant’s skeleton laying on the small island. " Turn the skull around!!" Shouts the Zombie Captain. “Turn the dammed skull around!!!!!” Dio orders one of the wraiths to rotate the Desecrated Skull of Passage and the underground current changes it’s course to move the ship out of the underground river.

Navigating the river still with three colossal skeletons boarding the ship, the wraith crew start to remember details about their past. They sail passing by the hulls of “The Frenchman” and “The Sea Predator” and “The Severed Hand” are some of the names. The Wraiths remember turn over to the Zombie Captain and shout his name " Carrasco !!!"

In shame, Carrasco explains that they are his crew and ship and that they were curse because of his greed and cruelty. He wants to free them from the curse. Dio casts atonement on Carrasco but there is still the last word of Death Kahuna.

" The Curse is a Ring around the Ship, and only the Death Kahuna can see it. " Raizak believes that the ring has to be ensemble and both pieces destroyed but under specific circumstances that Carrasco didn’t meet the last time he tried to destroy it. Returning to the port of Nula, were other ships await, they are given a special treatment but surrounded by undead and warriors. Of course, the ship was always Death Kahuna’s.

Nek-Ron Emptyeyes asks for the two pieces of the ring and offers passage paid by Death Kahuna on any of the ships visiting the island that day. Dio takes a chance and destroys both pieces of the Captain’s Ring with his mace. " and only the Death Kahuna can see it. " The ring destroyed, the wraiths turn into spirits that are free to go to the afterlife and the damaged ship crippled by the 100 years of battles sinks in the bay.

The Cursed Wraiths of The Crowe ends and Death Kahuna is not happy. Emptyeyes is about to order the Band of the Wolf arrested when a halfling dressed in a white suit interrupts: " Salutations! The Band of the Wolf you said? Maybe one of you can point me to Raizak Derek. My name is Herve and I believe he has an invitation from my master that is about to expire. "

Claiming in a peculiar voice that his master has “seniority” over the Band of the Wolf as "my master’s business with the Band of the Wolf were here before your master’s business with the Band of the Wolf. " Herve is able to take the Band of the Wolf to his master’s island in a beautiful ship with peacock painted sails.

Time:
Mystara Calendar
Duration: 2 days and 2 nights
Finished on: Nytdain the 5th of the month of Felmont of the year 1032 After the Coronation of the First Emperor of Thyatis (AC)

Synopsis:
After going down the stairs of The Northern Tower, the Band of the Wolf entered the Tokraka Dungeon. They recognize the battle damage done on the last time they were at this dungeon The Black Pit Part 1 and The Black Pit Part 2 and continue to secure the areas they explore last time and to explore the areas that they didn’t explore last time. They followed the tracks of the mines in direction to the blocked entrance. There they found out that someone had performed a ritual that turned five of the miners killed 500 years ago into Wraights and the ritual pentagram was keeping them respawning and tied up to the mine as a protection of some kind.

Frutumal casted invisibility to undead on Raizak who studied the pentagram and discovered that it needed a combination of Turn Undead, Dispel Magic and Disable Device to destroy it. Dio, Raizak and Daero did the right combination and the wraights were place to eternal rest.

A mummy dress in nithian ornaments was seen fleen the scene toward the lower levels.

As expected, the Monster Scarab Beetle Swarm was below on the Nithian Crypt. The Band battle the swarm and tried to localize the golden scarab using a Detect Magic spell. The battle was fierce. The golden scarab was on a wall at the end of a tunnel and the mummy casted invisibility on it to hide it. Frutumal used purge invisibility and the Band was able to target and destroy the golden scarab and at the same time battle the second swarm.

The crypt was built to study the ruins in the next level below Tokraka Dungeon Ancients. The mummy left was a wizard who was tasked with the protection of the archeological site from the enemies of the Nithian Empire, the Milenian Empire.
