Cursed Necropolis: Rio Grande Valley

会期 37 - Anachronistic Shit (時代 錯誤 の 糞)

Ryan’s notes:

Kazemde wants me to leave Anum behind at the behest of Oda Nobunaga for reasons unknown.

I just roll with it, Mummy shit, man.

Kazemde thinks he may be scaring his cult away from him.

Also, I’m no longer seeing weird psychedelic techno shit as I head in to nature, it’s all natural stuff now.

We bail on Anum, Bahiti manages to catch Oda Nobunaga leaving with us. He’s acting very strange about the whole thing, trying to play it off as everyone going to take a shit at the same time “It’s a new form of composting?”

Odas says “You should probably go with them too. When you see rats flee, it’s a sign that the ship is going to sink.”

Bahiti is very confused, only answer she gets from the cultists is “it’s the gods command.” “the god of fire and vengeance ” (Kazemde)

Bahiti tells Anum that a bunch of people are leaving, and that Oda is being obnoxious about it. Also tells him that Oda is talking in a modern way.

Oda is sitting on a wagon, waiting of Anum. They have a talk about why Anum is here, and about Apotheosis. Anum says his new attempts to find Apotheosis is to not look for Apotheosis.

Kazemde was invisible and watching this whole time, making sure Oda isn’t about to stab Anum.

In the meantime, Bahiti senses that despite being in the middle of nowhere, there’s Sekehem being used but she’s not sure how.

Kazemde notices that he’s not lost Sekehem until now, were he just loses a point of Sekhem.

Using my astral sight, I see the embassy room where we’re all passed out, however I see people busting in to the room, and they appear to be raising guns at us. One is shot at Kazemde, and the vision ends in a bright light. The people are carrying the weird weapons we say in the Nobunaga tomb.

I know that: We are not dead, it looks to be the same group of guys, and our bodies have not been moved.

Also, I have a nosebleed.

I can’t tell anyone because they all left me. Assholes.

I just wait for them to catch up.

会期 36 - Where there’s smoke, there’s fire (火の無い所に煙は立たぬ)


Ryan’s notes

Kazemde tells his followers to go find Citlali, they cower in fear as they fear her, but they go to look for her. Kazemde joins them.

Kazemde tracks Citlali’s foot prints to the city wall, deduces that she left the city and is now in the forest

Kazemde returns, tells us that Citlali has vanished, doesn’t know where she is. He then goes to push the drunken Nobunaga out of the cart, Nobunaga rolls on to his side and falls deeper in to the wagon as Kazemde moves to push him.

We’re on the road, now, and we venture from town to town. We decide to practice pretending to be a traveling circus troupe, even if we only get pennies for it.

We perform our magic act, we do pretty well. Kazemde manages to attract a crowd, and Nobunaga gets people to sing drunken songs with them. Bahiti and I don’t draw as big of a group, but we get tribute in the form of food and small trinkets.

Anum hands out Charms for protection, and gets some help from one of the buffer villagers who says he’ll look out for the elder who Bahiti read a death-mist-prophesy to him.

Later on our way out, we encounter a villager traveling who lets us know that Tahiti’s reading helped save the village elder.

Montage time: First village we perform at, we kinda suck, but the people here have a better idea where Kazemde’s cash is. I start doing well, and turn out to be the main attraction. Bahiti suffers a but, but still manages to get some attention. Bahiti also gets another vision of someone who is reviled getting taken away by the mist.

I secretly try to inform people that the mist is for realz, but no one believes me, and eventually my rumors develop in to their own things.

We decide to follow the defiler of daughters guy and watch the mist take him so we can find the mist’s body pile were there might be phat lootz.

We stalk defiler man man/’s house, eventually he comes out to pee, and while he’s doing that we see a woman behind his house beckon him over. When defiler man goes to follow, she runs in to the woods. We follow, but eventually we lose track of them (except for KAzemde). He sees the woman turn in to mist and attack the man.

Kazemde attacks the mist woman, but he has no success and simply passes through it. He takes minor ice damage from the frozen mist. Kazemde watches the mist envelop the defiler man and freeze him to death.

The mist retreats from a now visible Kazemde, and Kazemde turns in to a flaming bird of death. In a forest. He shoots molten glass laser beams. We all see him doing this, and have a forest fire on our hands. We leave.

Kazemde follows the mist woman as a firebird. The mist shapes in to a woman and asks him what Kazemde thinks he’s doing.

Kazemde flings more molten glass at her, and the mists disperses and fades in to nothing. Kazemde is still a giant firebird in the sky.

The villagers are panicking and feeling, we get in to our cart and make to leave, some of the villagers try to board and we let them. Kazemde’s cultists chide the villagers for following the wrong god.

Kazemde rejoins us, invisible.

After we leave the village, the mist person appears in the back of our cart, asleep and bleeding. Anum figures out that it’s a fear eating monster, and that Citlali (who this person is playing host to) is no longer in control of the body.

As we get to the next town, we get a lukewarm reception because people are more concerned about the giant fire that just happened and they’re worried about Nobunaga coming with his army. Bahiti reassures them that this isn’t the case, but I spread rumors among the nobles that Nobunaga is actually coming.

At the last town we perform well. Anum glasses the town and people are in to it. The cultist lays more groundwork, Bahiti reassures them, and I sow rumors hat war is coming to the upper class.

Mist woman wakes up and is silently tending to her wounds. Anum goes to Kazemde and signals that he might have to kill mist woman, then asks her a trick question of what kind of music she prefers.

The mist woman answers poorly, and Anum and Kazemde kill her. We now have no idea what happened to Citlali.

会期 35 - 1580 C.E. / 5412 S.C. (1580 西暦 / 5412 ソティス周期)



Ryan’s notes

We “awake” sitting in a court setting, but tea is being served and it’s a more casual environment.

Anum “awakes” in a room with Oda Nobunaga, in the middle of a personal conversation with him.

Citlali’s stranger hunger is still there in greater amount, but normal food seems to sate it.

Irah is also there, looking mad. Haha.

Kazemde pokes Irah in the back of the head. Irah is mad, and wondering why we’re here (she asks in english)

I tell her we found a cool artifact thing, so we decided to poe around with hit. She demands to know where we are, she tells us she’s at a really nice apartment that shouldn’t be anywhere near us.

I ask if she got my message, she apparently didn’t.

Meanwhile, with Anum, Nobunaga asks if Anum accepts something. Anum just smiles, asks what he needs to know right now. Nobunaga says he can give Anum the logistics, but he can help Anum with his spiritual development.

Anum nods, shoves a handful of sweets in his mouth.

Nobunaga says he wants Anum to go to the north, recruit enemy soldiers so they can perform a pincer attack. Anum wants to know where to get some good things to eat or watch good play while he’s doing all this.

Nobunaga is confused, and suggests that Anum keep a low profile.

Anum says he wants to explore life, and Nobunaga gets enthusiastic and helps Anum plan things out.

After this, they go out and Nobunaga makes a speech about unifying the land, some people are a bit confused, but roll with it. Nobunaga says Anum will be key to his plan, but then he just leaves and the formality begins to break down a bit.

Anum lets us know that we’re leaving tonight and not get too drunk.

Citlali follows Anum around with appreciative eyes.

Kazemde does a search for any items he might have stolen, but he runs in to trouble with his courtiers. Poor guys. Burakumin.

I go around taking samples of sweet foods and snacks at the party.

Citlali-chan continues to stalk on Anum-Sempai from afar. Why wont he notice her?

One of the servants is super concerned for Anum, and approaches Citlali about his drinking. The servant is really worried about the mission Nobunaga has given them. Citlali says she’s got it handled and the servant backs off.

Citlali invites one of the guests out for a walk. He’s confused and pretty sure she’s up to something, but decides to roll with it. Citlali leads him to a secluded area and flirts to pump information out of him. He reveals that he keeps women in an abusive kinda way.

Citlali armors up, but suddenly the two of them are in a forest that is entirely black and white and the dude is afraid.

Murder happens off screen.

The party begins to wind down, and Citlali returns with her power levels restored.

I mingle a bit, get the impression that some of the generals are tired of the war.

Kazemda interrogates his cult about his stash of stolen goods, one of his priestesses informs him that “perhaps it is where you came from, in the holy north?”

We head out on our mission, disguising ourselves and our funds.

Also, someone is sleeping in our cart, who is also snoring rather loudly. It’s a very tired Nobunaga.

I decide that, since our cover is a traveling troupe of performers, to pass myself of as a magician because I can pull random junk out of nowhere.

Notes For A Vision From Sun Ra About the Group In Japan

Anum went by Yasuke, with no family name given. The Jesuit wasn’t Xavier, who I think might have been dead at that point, but Alessandro Valignano. Kazemde was also around as Daruma Hata, an crazy underground Keikyo (Nestorian Chrisitan) holy man with a Burakumin cult. Irah was around as a travelling Inari Shinko priestess/huckster, Ira Fushimi. The Bahiti analog was named Maria Fátima Cão and was sort of a consort of Nobunaga’s from Europe.

会期 34 - So it goes... (是非に及ばず)



Ryan’s notes

On the edge of Kyoto, Citlali notices people’s aura’s, some are grey and have their pulses visible

My clockwork visions are back 200%, but the machinery is much more well kept

Anum notices the tomb of Nobunaga is open, also, there is a huge exhibit of Egyptian artifacts

Kazemde notices dozens of pings of artifacts for him to eat, most in the city proper

Anum hooks a bucket and a rope together to make a sling, cosplaying a historical figure

Fernando calls, asks if we need a ride, he doesn’t trust us to not get in trouble on foot

Fernando arrives, with a young teenager with him, his name is Fernando Jr. Fernando: “Ehh… I get around.” We make our way towards the inner city.

Kazemde is also now worshiped in a cult as the god of smuggling

Kazemde notices clusters of Sekhem in different cultural centers, museums and other old places. Most are low level. Kazemde Jr. takes notes on these locations.

I notice that the pings are located in populated and well secured areas (cameras, police stations), Anum thinks it matches up to the old city roads from old timey kyoto

Kazemde gets a signal of a very powerful artifact in Honno-ji. While on the way there, Citlali gets a sense that the grey-ed out people are super jerks, yakuza or corrupt.

I notice that the super tech laying around is very prominent in the actual city, but all but non-existent in the ancient temples.

Anum makes a bee-line for Nobunaga’s grave, there is one other person there, who is also grey and a douche.

Kazemde turns off the camera, Anum meditates on the grave of Nobunaga, Kazemde senses the Sekhem under the grave

Anum remembers sitting across from Nobunaga, who is asking him questions about his philosophy of life, especially how he expects to reach apotheosis if he doesn’t know what it is. He also remembers being one of Nobunaga’s generals, and being secretly sent to raise an army to form a pincer attack on another enemy.

Anum asked Kazemde to be gentle with the casket (not utterly destroy it). The casket is hollow, empty other than an urn.

Kazemde uses my quantum pockets to get a shovel so he can dig up the grave.

Citlali and I are on watch, and I notice that when Kazemde is really starting to dig (using Sekhem), the light on the camera turns from green to purple. Security cameras do not use purple.

Citlali notices a group of school children (11 years old) and a teacher heading their way. She feels protective of them, knowing they are near something supernatural. She goes to try and intercept them to say that the area is off limits.

The teacher is highly skeptical, and also grey/douche. Citlali manages to convince the teacher to leave, as she implied that she knows that the teacher is abusive to the kids.

Kazemde digs up an old box, covers up the hole haphazardly, and we bail.

Fernando asks if we should run or not, we tell him to drive casually.

However, we see five black vans and a police car drive towards the temple very fast, ignoring traffic.

I use my far sight to spy on the investigators as they arrive at the temple, they close down the temple claiming radiation. People unlabbled swat uniforms disperse throughout the temple grilling people, some even have rifles. One has an scanner that he swears around the area and another has something that looks like a rifle, but has electricity at the end. They also take the camera that was turn around.

I explain this to Kazemde, and tell him he may want to deal with this if he does’t want trouble later.

In the box, Kazemde finds an urn that looks like the urn Irah used to make us go on a past life adventure. It looks like a bagdad battery. It’s a five dot artifact.

Fernando was already to our safe house, which is actually the Peruvian consulate. We get let through the gate when they see Fernando Jr. We are lodged in a house for guests of the Peruvian consulate. The Japanese police aren’t allowed in, nice.

Fernando Jr.’s mom is the ambassador to Japan.

Citlali confesses to Anum about the grey people and the urge eat them. Anum says he’s sure she’ll work through it, then he recalls an errand he needs to run.

Once we’re all together, we lay down or sit on chairs and open the past life box.

We are subject to a rewind effect and are thrown back in time, in the middle of a field of Kyoto before it was Kyoto.

Before all of this, I prepare an email to send to Irah about our use of a precious artifact.

Sesión Treinta y Tres - In a Mirror, Darkly (Un Espejo a la Oscuridad)


Ryan’s notes:

Surrounded by black pyramids, I take a shot at one, causing it to shatter and disintegrate. However, once I did that, another one literally just popped in to existence. However, they do not react at all, just remain stationary. One approaches Kazemde, about an arms length from his torso, and my danger sense goes off. Kazemde rolls initiative. The top point of the pyramid is starting to glow red, Kazemde knifes it, and it goes spinning and a laser comes out and hits the wall, melting an inch or so through it.

Citlali and Bahiti notice that the laser’ed wall resembles an ancient text that they had been studying. Anum can tell it’s a simple sentence saying “for us please do not attack”. Anum tells us to not attack, and starts to talk in Iremite. A pyramid approaches him and starts to glow red, like it did Kazemde. Our danger sense goes off. Anum introduces himself, at the same time the pyramid shoots a laser in to his chest. On his chest is burned “Can you be able to understand me?” Anum tells it not to attack him, and tells it to communicate without layering him.

It goes back to Kazemde and laser communicates again. Kazemde grabs it and turns it so it doesn’t laser him, up on the wall, it lasers “please please help. looking for us, looking for one of us”. Kazemde tries to carve back “do not laser us, we can help” in it. it lets him do it.

All of them start to act together strangely, and eventually writes on the wall “You understand us, you will help” Anum carves back that he can. It tells us that one of it’s kind is hidden in one of your kind, and it needs help finding it.

there is a breif period where we work out communications, as apparently they can only understand things in the moment of writing, nothing else. Anum tells the pyramids to protect us and not attack anything that we don’t attack. Negotiations are had, and we agree to help them. Apparently, one of their kids is lost inside one of “our people”, and if it gets out in to the world, there would be significant consequences. They can’t sense the baby pyramids when they are inside someone else, but apparently the mummies can.

We tell them to keep an eye out for a “back mouthed shark guy” and open him up if they see him, as their baby might be in him. Wink wink.

They agree to help us with shark guy if we agree to help them.

While looking, Citlali hears a noise that seems far away that sounds like a child crying. She looks around to try and pinpoint it. None of us heard it.

Anum realizes that it’s not normal for a person to walk around with a gaping chest wound, and asks one of us for help. Citlali attends to him, although he rejects any use of sekhem

Kazemde and I are pretty sure we’ve spotted the shark guy. He’s hiding in a group of people to protect himself from us, and also Citlali can get a sense that the baby pyramid might be hidden inside one of the kids. Anum points them out the kid to the pyramids, and tells the rest of them to dismember the back mouth shark guy. the pyramids don’t understand the concept of surveillance on them, but they go to dissect the shark man.

They push the crowd away, and shark man tries to activate his supermode, but he gets caught in a net of lasers and dismembered.

Citlali goes to check on the kid, although the kid and the parents are freaked out. Anum asks if the human will be harmed checking for the baby pyramid. the pyramids tell us to observe their work on the shark man “We are very thorough”.

Kazemde recognizes that, while the dad does coke, they seem to be a happy family who were taking their kid on a trip.

We make a second look, just on the off chance that the kid isn’t the pyramid host. None of us see anything of note except for Anum, who notices that the kid is wincing every so often, but we can’t tell why.

Bahiti goes to try and suck the baby pyramid out of the kid, they manage to distract the parents for kazemde to knock them out and stash them somewhere, and Bahiti performs her ritual. After a bit, a baby pyramid comes out of the kid’s chest, with a small line of energy connecting it to her her. The baby pyramid seems to be trying to stay attached to the kid, Anum asks the other pyramids to help without endangering the kid. they try, but the pyramids say that they need to take the kid with them in order to remove the baby pyramid. They say that they’ll take the kid to a location our choosing after they’re done, and we give them the address we got off the parents.

We decide to hand off the parents to the pyramids, just so they can be together.

They fly away and vanish inside a ruined structure that hadn’t been there before. One stays back and asks us where we’re going. Anum points to Kyoto. Suddenly, we find that we’re now moored in japan. In a lake. In the middle of japan.

We eventually get off, the poor crew baffled as to how this happened. As we disembark, we get a call from Fernando, asking if that was us on the news. Fernando is confused and disappointed, but he’s going to text us where to meet him.

Also, Kazemde stole a quarter million dollars of stuff.

Sesión Treinta y Dos - Bad News Flies (Las Malas Noticias Vuelan)


Ryan’s notes:

After the power goes out, I hand out flashlights from my quantum pockets. This is clearly the work of shark guy, so we decide to wait for him to come to us so we can ambush us. A half hour later, we hear a man’s scream two rooms down from Anum’s room. We hear the staff going to investigating the scream. Also, Kazemde fails a memory roll, he gets a feeling of not wanting to be here on a boat. They guys investigating come back with a stretcher and moving the body.

Also, Kazemde mentions that we’re in the Dragon’s Triangle, which basically means that a whole bunch of weird shit, and that the lights on his ship back in the day had gone out. Kazemde looks out for anything strange, and only sees a guy with a flashlight checking around. There doesn’t seem to be anything strange going on outside at the moment this evening. We get told to stay in our room for security purposes, but we can tell that they’re nervous, and that they’re even checking the rooms that are empty.

Kazemde gets a very faint feeling of Sekhem, it’s flickering and moving about the boat at random.

I use my clairvoyance to scope the situation, and I get vision of black pyramids in a desert landscape, actually floating. There are forty of them, their size is unknown, as there is no sun in the sky. They pyramids also vanish and reappear at random.

Back on the ship, there is also smooth jazz in the background, coming from someone’s room. Probably playing it. Another half hour passes, and we hear another scream. Bahiti, in Anum’s room, is staying as still as possible. We hear another scream in the next half hour, this time on the deck. The smooth jazz is continuing, stopping only when the screams happen. Another guy comes guy, telling us to stay in our rooms.

After a bit, we hear the guys making patrols get in to an argument with the people who are playing music, but nothing happens, as they can’t really enforce it. It’s getting close to midnight. While burning time, I pull out weapons and ammunition to prepare for the worst.

Suddenly, a little stream of electricity comes out Bahiti, and now they have a working alarm clock. Suddenly, a tiny floating and rotating black pyramid pops in to the room, and pops out, accompanied by a flash of Sekhem.

We discuss moving to the ships vault, as the room is no longer secure, and I realize that we’re not moving.

Kazemde doesn’t remember how he dealt with this, but he remembers silent skeleton things trying to board the ship, and he was only able to drive them off by giving something that he had in a chest. We decide to all make our way to the Apostate. Anum asks me to keep an eye out for guns. I tell him I’ll need new coat (quantum pockets ftw)

The apostate is playing on the deck, and he has a crowd with him listening to the music. We get stopped by a guy telling us to go back to our room, but Anum bulldozes his pay through him. Kazemde has found a bunch of fancy knives, but no guns.

I hand out pistols to the group from my quantum pockets.

The Apostate waves to Kazemde, in a way that implies he wants him to join the band. The apostate asks for a few minutes before he jumpstarts Kazemde’s memory. The Apostate doesn’t know about the pyramids, but compares them to iPods. Kazemde has him do the memory thing. Kazemde remembers being in a giant cathedral made of stone, at a table drinking some sort tea. The Apostate is also there, talking bout something Kazemde isn’t interested in. Suddenly a pyramid shows up, projects text on the table asking him what he wants to eat, Kazemde places his order, and a little bit later it comes back with a meal.

Kazemde does it again, this time regarding the skeletons. He remembers fighting a tooth and nail to keep his treasure, but facing a rebellion from his crew, is forced to give up his treasure. Kazemde keeps this to himself, but explains that they’re basically servants.

Anum tells Citlali to try and woo some of the crew to get us food and drinks. She manipulates a guy in to doing that, and says he’ll roll out a fridge. Kazemde and the Apostate have a talk about the good old days.

Bahiti, when touching the fridge, turns it on for a good few minutes. We decide to try and find the engines so Bahiti can power it. We don’t have a map, but Bahiti uses her new electricity power to power her phone that has the civilian map to cross reference it with Kazemde, who knows where everything valuable is, and where nothing valuable is.

On our way to the engine room, we pass by the safe, which is partially open. We investigate, as Kazemde is mad that someone might be taking his stuff. Inside, there are two bodies on a stretcher and Kazemde’s loot is gone. There are some medical supplies, so we grab them and I put them in my quantum pockets so I can abuse it forever.

We get to the engine room, and I start having a very very light mechanical vision. We find a book of SOPs that has a section on restarting the engine. Bahiti on the other hand, knows her shit, and she takes care of it herself. She gets drained, but manages to turn it on, and I keep an eye on the door in case any shark guys come through the door, but either way, the ship starts to move.

Then mummies sense a rush of Sekhem coming towards us from all directions, through the walls, likely.

Sesión Treinta y Uno - Jumping The Shark (Saltando Sobre el Tiburón)


Ryan’s Notes:

On the ship, we spend our time learning Japanese, I use my fractal powers to study it all, and in the meantime I notice that all the gears and turbines are all gone now. Thank goodness. Bahiti uses her mummy powers to learn the language quickly. In the meantime, I notice that the drug trade on the boat has collapsed. A bunch of angry tourists are wanting drugs, but they aren’t being sold.

Bahiti also gets one of her dreams about a small child sitting in a wooded area pulling the wings off dragon-flies. Bahiti interrogates the child, but not much comes of it other than the child is hungry and was looking for Bahiti. Apparently BAhiti met the child once before, when the child was an old woman. Citlali and Bahiti join a japanese study group to learn japanese.

Kazemde steals candy.

I investigate the collapse of the drug trade, apparently the suppliers have stopped selling. I “intimidate” the seller kid in to setting up a meeting with his supplier. I get a meeting set up in a sushi shop.

Bahiti and Citlali are in the japanese classes, having reversed conversations to familiarize themselves with the language. Citlali notices that one staff eyeing Bahiti, she tells Bahiti. The guy looks normal enough, though. Citlali decides to keep an eye on him in return, but afterwards decides to leave.

Using my quantum pockets, I get a crew manifest for Bahiti, and learn that the guy (James Fernandez) staring at her was a cook for a celebrity restraints.

Meeting with the drug supplier, who is also James Fernandez, I learn that he threw all the drugs overboard. He says there are more important things in life than screwing over rich white people. He is lying his ass off, and he’s only here because he thinks he has to be here to deal with me. I call him on it and he brushes me off. I decide to follow him, but he goes back in to his room, so I go back to mine and recon him with my clairvoyance. I get a vision from his point of view of a whole turkey, that he picks up and puts behind his back, there is ravenous eating sounds. Suddenly the turkey is gone, and he goes to watch TV. In the mirror, something on his back is eating the turkey.

I recall a hawaiien story about the children of the shark god, who look like men but they have a shark mouth on the back. Also you should never feed them meat, or they’ll go in to a feeding frenzy. This guy is not going in a frenzy, however. I check out the wiki on the shark god.

We decide to keep an eye on him for now, as well as keep Bahiti under protection.

Citlali and I learn that our ship is about to enter an area known as the dragon’s triangle, basically the bermuda triangle of the pacific. Kazemde remembers being attacked when he was a pirate by shit like a flying whale and skeletons while sailing through there. Eventually he decided it wasn’t going to deal with this anymore, and took the long way around.

Citlali notices that as we get closer to the dragon’s triangle, shark guy is keeping a closer and closer eye on Bahiti, including keeping a notebook, and marking specific dates as well as writing names of other staff.

I notice that shark guy is putting on a lot of weight really quickly, more than a human should be.

Kazemde decides to steal Bahiti by using a food cart and carting her from her room to Anum’s. I bribe a guy to cooperate and smuggle kazemde in and Citlali out. We succeed masterfully.

Citlali and I note that shark guy is now super confused as to why there is no more noise coming from Bahiti’s room.

The next day, there is a knock at Citlali’s door, it’s James, with a cake. I open the door and deal with James, after a bit of stonewalling him, his face goes blank and he walks away. The sharkgod legend mentions shapeshifting, but I’m not certain how much shapeshifting is going on. A little bit later, we get a shipwide announcement asking for James and Jason. Shark guy and prank staff guy have gone missing, apparently.

There’s another knock at the door, and it’s “Bahiti” acting all panic-y. I pretend to play along and ask her why she’s scared, Not!Bahiti says she thinks that the shark guy found her, but she realizes that I’m faking the conversation, and runs away. Citlali and I note how shark guy is “circling” us, trying to probe for Bahiti, and he’ll likely come back.

Then the power goes out.

A sharkman stalks Bahiti. When he was just a man, I cared little. I spend most days in study, preparing for Japan. Finding he is a sharkman with a mouth upon his back, I am concerned. The last man-shark we fought had powerful companions.

I suggest we hide Bahiti and wait for it to attack. Perhaps, we can confound the thing until we reach port. Kazemde is more than able to deceive it, as I expected. Days later, we find it is also a shape-shifter of some sort.

I wonder if we might use it to gift Kazemde with shape-shifting. He would surely treasure the power. and, I feel a bit guilty that he keeps trying to aid me and I have given him so little in out travels.

I will spend a day in thought, if I can, and try to discern a way to copy the spirit hunters from my past vision. I like the idea of a sharkskin and tooth belt…
