Rise of the Twelve

The Treasure Hunt
Booker and Captain Git

Booker found himself in one of his favorite watering holes having a couple pints of Rum. Lucky for him he was an Able Drinker. When Captain Bartholomew Jones joined him at his table. Booker had been watching the local maiden as she went about her task.

The Captain had met Booker before while he was still sailing with Scarlett.
It seems the captain had come into quite a find. A Syrneth compass. This compass apparently had a place for gems to be mounted in it, and the legend says once all the gems were found the compass would point to a great Syrneth treasure. there was only one problem the Compass currently pointed to what the captain thinks is Cathay.

So he was getting a crew together and needed a good Helmsman to navigate the waters around Cathay. Booker agreed to join the motley crew and off they went sailing to Cathay.

As they neared the wall of fire. The ship was set upon by three Vestenmannavnjar Raiders.
The battle was rather one sided being 3 against one and the pirate ship sunk when it’s powder magazine went up. Booker awoke to find himself floating on a piece of debris, and as luck would have it the captains corpse floated quite near him, still clutching the bag that held the Syrneth compass.

Booker wasted no time alleviating the corpse of the Compass and since his piece of drift was better than Bookers sending the captain off to sea as well. Time passed until a ship arrived finding Booker. It was a Cathayan ship and on board was a Cathayan Sorcerer. Booker was rescued and taken back to their Cathayan stronghold where he recuperated.

Sveta and Matushka
Look I can fly

Svetlana Ivanovna went to sleep with a smile on her face. It had been a good day in the tea trade business, she had made some new acquisitions, and sold some others. All things considered Matushka had ben kind to her.

As she slept she dreamed of Matushka coming to visit her. Matushka told her that she needed Sveta to run an errand for her. And that she would need to fly tot he far off land of Cathay where she would find the Bear, the rat and the weasel. She had a message for them that her most favored was in trouble and they would need to proceed back to the land of the rat as soon as possible.

When Svata awoke she found a curious necklace with an amulet on her nightstand. It had the symbol of an Eagle on one side, and the Symbol of Matushka on the other side of the Amulet. Placing the the necklace around her neck she suddenly felt strange, a moment later where Sveta had been standing now stood an Eagle. Matushka had told her she would know where to look, and a moment later Sveta leapt into the air and began flying. Straight for the wall of fire.

Great were her keen eyes, and she spotted many prey for a quick dinner along the way to Cathay.

Booker and Scarlett
Here we go again.

Booker first met Scarlett when he signed onboard a ship seeking treasure. Scarlett the self proclaimed Pirate Queen was a red headed beauty and she took an interest in Booker. She promised not to betray anyone at least until the had found the treasure.

The Treasure map itself was written in Latin and they required someone to translate for them. So Scarlett and Booker went to a nearby Castillian controlled island to carry out her plan to get someone who could translate. That plan was to pose as a couple wanting to get married and get a priest to marry them. The Sham marriage ceremony began and just as Scarlett was about to grab the priest someone recognized her. She knocked the Priest out and started running ordering the bewildered Booker to grab the priest and run for it. They managed to steal a carriage to carry the priest in and finally elude their followers. Triumphantly returning to the ship with their translator.

After searching for clues to the lost treasure and sailing to several islands they finally found what they were looking for. Unfortunately for them the Natives did not take kindly to intruders on their island. All of the crew was captured except for Scarlett and her monkey companion Dexter. Everything seemed bleak for the crew as several were killed and added into the big stew pot. Booker found out that he was unfortunate as he would not be thrown into the stew pot, but rather the chiefs daughter had taken an interest in him, asking the chief to make him her mate. The Chiefs daughter was about 5’ tall and 5’ wide, and Booker longed for the death in the boiling waters of the stew. Dexter appeared just when things looked darkest and untied booker from where he waited his marriage. The two snuck away from the camp in the night and met up with Scarlett.

They each to a hold of the treasure chest raising it up at which point Scarlett exclaimed she only came back for Booker because she could not carry the treasure chest by herself. The two escaped back to the ship, and Booker vowed never to fall for one of Scarlett’s schemes again.
