"Good luck," the Captain says as the two adventurers are lead away.
"And keep your head down, there may be some fireworks."
*Been there, done that*, the lizard man thinks. Aloud, he promises to use care in the battle ahead.
By the time Owen and Ted reach the boarding party, three men, two women and a mutant dog (who looks like a pit bull), the submarine has already crested the surface. A hatch swings open to reveal...
Little more than fog. The land can be dimly glimpsed about thirty feet away. Two rafts are inflated and thrown in the water. As everyone boards, Ted and Owen realize that this is almost the spot where Louissa was attacked by the tentacle. However, there is no sign of Alister or Lady Sialillion, only a shredded cloak that they are sure is Sia's.
There's little time to respond, as arrows start hailing on them from the shore. These are no ordinary arrows, for they manage to stick into the hull of the submarine, almost surely a mega-damage structure.
The reptilian mercenary makes for cover as quickly as can. After crouching down behind something, he telepathically informs Owen that he intends to get closer. A moment later, he takes off in the direction the arrows came from.
