With repairs recently completed on The Blue Nixie, and Lavinia Vanderboren determined to capture her brother, she tells the party take the ship, at this time captained by Amella Venkalie, to Blood Bay. There they hoped to find Vanthus Vanderboren, who planed a raid on the Crimson Fleet hideout. The hideout was situated in caves in a small cover protected by a dangerous reef, know locally as Kraken Cove.
As the ship approached the bay the adventures saw numerous dead deformed sea creatures floating in the waters, and smoke from what must have been a fierce blaze burning in cove itself. As the turned into the bay they discovered a ship drifting dangerously just outside the reefs that make the cove a perfect hideout. Amella explained they wouldn’t be able to clear the reef without good charts of the reef, so they would need to find charts or set down the other side of the cliffs and make way overland.
On the hope of finding charts or some explanation as to what had happened in the bay Amella brought The Blue Nixie alongside the drifting ship. As the adventurers boarded, The Sea Wyvern, they saw it’s deck was covered in blood and the bodies of butchered sailors, their limbs covered in cuts and bit marks. Some were twisted and deformed as if they were partially mutated into something else but were died during the process, the new form unable to survive.
