Session 15 in which,

  • The Scions set sail for the Isla De Nobon, on the Amistad.
  • The figurehead was gone, leaving only scarred wood.
  • The twin personalities of Joseph Cinque and Sengbe Pieh were reunited, stopping the deathless war between the crew members.
  • The ship was sped on with divine assisstance.
  • The Scions passed a wailing rock, festooned with chained prisoners, being harired by black and white hawks.
  • HIto shot a prsioner free, who swam to the ship.
  • The prisoner was Kai, twelve years old, who claimed to have a wife and two children at home. He told the Sicons that he worshipped the Goddess Aia, and that the rock was hungry, a place of punishment and torture. He himself was from a hunter gatherer tribe that lived on an island.
  • Aia was the Goddess who had protected them when the valleys of their enemy filled with ice.
  • The Scions were attacked by the Lusca, but fought it off while narrowly keeping the The Amistad afloat, finding the below decks filled with people stacked like cordwood.
  • Shorlty after, they were becalmed, until Theo sang up a wind and sung praises to Agwe.
  • A volley of silver missilies, heralded the arrival of Grecian trimers, made from shing silver and bedecked with lotus and lion heraldry.
  • A duel for passage was fought between Chambers and the ships captain, Tyrone Wallace, which Chambers eventually won by tipping him into the sea.
  • The Scions eventually arrived at the Isla De Nobon, leaving Kai on board, to join the below decks crew.
  • Passing a weathered marker stone on the beach, they passed through dense jungle before following a river down to a vast plain, its clear water running over gemstones. Bathing and drinking, HIto spoke with the kammi of a gemstone, and took one for posterity.
  • Walking through lush grass, the Scions came on the bones of a sailor, gnawed by human teeth.
  • On the plain below, herds of buffalo likes creatures wheeled, chased by red lions, and two cyclops squabbled over the carcass of their prey.
  • Striding acorss the plain, toward white runins in the distance, they stumbled over a second stone marker to the village of Alanei.
  • Bellows echoed across the island.
  • Theodore rode Violette, to see her hunting amongst a group of archaically dressed people, talking gibberish, but got her attention using her phone.
  • Arrinvg at the ruins, the Scions found a naked giant staked out, bellowing frantically, as a roc soared over head, its wings casintg shadows onto the giant's back.
  • They apprhened a small boy spying on them, who introdcued himself as Kemi, and led them to hihs mother Amanirenas and her band of warriors who told the band they had captured the giant, as he was the first of the Prester's creature and thus precious to him, and they wished to lure him into an ambush.
  • After a brief discussion about the places history, in which Amanireanas explained that she was a Scion of Isis, and that the triangle symbol on their cheeks was a mark of respect to the previous civlisation that had been wiped out, the Scions began to prepare for the ambush.
