In this session of the Skull and Shackles campaign, the crew is hiding out in the Tulita village on the outskirts of Blackblood Cay. They are guests of the Tulita shaman, Milliauka, and his son, Mokoli. They are welcomed to stay in the village as long as they are in Blackblood Cay if they wish to avoid the authorities. The shaman shares what he knows about Shark Island, the Shark God, and the pirate lord of Shark Island. After being rewarded with a necklace of Tumatenga and warned about the rising influence of the Shark God, the party heads off to finish their errands
While at the whale market, Tidus flees from Grund when he realizes she attempted to cast a hex upon him. He flees the Fallen From Grace Inn, naked and screaming “rape!” while running down the streets. Back at the whale market, the crew decide to head to the Apsis Consortium and purchase some wares there and learn what they can on why the Consortium is interested in them. While at the Consortium market, they meet the mercane merchant Brazil. After making some purchases, they move on to say hello to their old friend, Captain Pegsworthy. They make good relations with the old Captain, and then come across a naked Tidus wandering the streets.
The crew decides to head back to the Fallen From Grace Inn and learn more about Grund, only to find that the inn is crawling with dragoon soldiers. They follow after a contingent of soldiers carrying Tidus’s equipment and ambush them on the streets, using non-lethal methods to knock out the guards. With Tidus equipped, they move on to their next errand.
The crew arrive at the governor’s manor and begin to come up with schemes on how to get inside. Quade and the rest of the crew, with the exception of De’de, disguise themselves as a traveling noble and his entourage. They are able to bluff their way in to have a meeting with the governor himself, Simeon Smythee the Vain. The governor entertains Quade, mentioning that he is the second elf noble he entertained in the last month, making a reference to Amon of Candlestone. Wynter breaks away from the group and meets up with Nefti. Meanwhile Tidus gets caught up in some mischief in the manor. Swapping goods, Wynter is given the package they were sent to pick up and Quade is able to excuse themselves from the governor’s presence.
Once outside the manor, Quade takes a peek inside the package and discovers the sleeping figure of Agasta Smythee. The group argue over the merits of delivering Agasta over to Captain Lanteri and eventually decide to follow through with the delivery. Once the group returns to the Magpie warehouse, Mo the Quartermaster scolds them for their misadventures and rousing the Dragoon guard. When Captain Lanteri arrives, Quade demands a private meeting with her. Intrigued, Lanteri speaks with Quade alone. During the private meeting, Lanteri admits that she needs Agasta in order to find the next clue to Captain Redclaw’s treasure. Her client wanted the Blushing Bride, but since the Magpies can’t steal the ship within the short deadline while the dragoons are alerted to the possibility of thieves, Agasta was a contingency. Quade then demands to be involved in the decision making, which Lanteri agrees. Once back with the group, Agasta is freed from the bag of holding and is welcomed by the Magpie crew as a new crew member. Agasta falsely believes that she is running away from home to join a life at sea as a pirate. Mary eventually catches up with the group, having escaped Fort Stormshield.
The crew then join the Magpies as they board the Magpie Princess with their newly acquired cargo. While out at sea, Tidus and Agasta grow closer with one another romantically. The Rajah assigns the crew to their new roles aboard the Magpie Princess. Tidus is assigned the role of a rigger, while De’de is given the job of being the cook’s assistant. The rest of the marines are given jobs as swabs.
The Magpie then arrives at Beacon Point, where they find three ships waiting for them. One of the ships is the Blood Moon, the vessel belonging to the lord of Shark Island, Avimar Sorrinash. Lanteri brings Quade, Wynter, De’de, Vancid Creed, and Agasta to the small sandbar. Tidus suddenly realizes what is going on and immediately tries to rescue Agasta, but soon changes his mind when he realizes that Sorrinash has the waters surrounding the sandbar guarded with sea devils and sharks. When Agasta realizes what is going on, she begins to panic and is dragged forth before Sorrinash. Free Captain Sorrinash welcomes Lanteri and the two captains share a brief exchange of words. Quade takes ahold of Agasta, knocks her out, and then promises her that he will save her before handing her over to the lord of Shark Island. Sorrinash then gives Quade a piece of the eight pieces of Besmara, stirring another memory to the surface. Quade then hands the silver piece to Captain Lanteri.
As the group leaves, Sorrniash awakens Agasta, “I want you awake to experience this.” And then he bites her, infecting her with lycanthropy.
The group leaves with a bitter taste in their mouths as they return to the Magpie. Quade questions Lanteri about the piece of eight. She responds that with the eight pieces of Besmara, she will become the next Hurricane King.
