Incident Report – Unbounded Wayfarer Recovery (Cont.)
Crew Roster Addendum
Galakrond – Vesk Mercenary Soldier
Starship Endless Threnody
Crew reported literal skeletal crew resistance; half dozen defenders overcome. Eoxian ship leaking necromantic radiation. Ysoki crewman Twitch disabled generators to safeguard approach to bridge. There, he and Shirren crewman Winslow hacked navigational computer, retrieved coordinate data for Unbounded Wayfarer – Ulmarid. No further data regarding pirate vessel Lawblight. Requisition order for sturdier ship placed.
Briefed crew on planet Ulmarid. Isolated planet in the Vast uninhabited by intelligent creatures. Two large moons collided ages ago, resulting in a field of tumbling debris high in orbit, preventing easy access to planet’s surface. Planet seems to have little to offer; mostly a desert world, with poisonous crystalline rains and screaming winds.
Android crewman Kusanagi piloted Odyssey through planetary asteroid field commendably. Landed half hour’s walk from source of distress beacon. Crew reported weathering storm of poisonous crystals from briefing. Crew reported attack by local fauna designated Skreebara – multi-legged burrower with sonic manipulation [Dossier Image Below]. Vesk crewman Boske showed initiative, utilizing anti-personnel weapon found near wreckage. Valuable carapace crystals harvested.
Wreckage of Starship Unbounded Wayfarer
Unfortunately, all hands lost. Crew reported impact marks of heavy metallic slugs (as coilgun). Lawblight must employ weapons such as these. Crew utilized insignias to access computer logs. Transmitted data regarding four previously unknown Vast locations:
- Elytrio – wasteland planet that displayed signs of scattered technology
- Lamentia – sentient asteroid teeming with morlock “children”
- End of Bright Things – large space station stuck between the orbits of two blue dwarf stars
- Wealdriad – stormy, oceanic world with upthrust columns of basalt piercing the storm-tossed ocean’s surface
Coordinates for a fifth site too corrupted to display, but crew reported finding a magical item salvaged from the lost location: iridescent spindle aeon stone. Crew also went above and beyond call of duty by returning to Odyssey with bodies of fallen Unbounded Wayfarer crew.
Odyssey came under attack by pirate vessel Lawblight [Dossier Image Below] upon exiting asteroid field. Utilizing details gleaned from earlier investigations, the crew quickly gained advantage over enemy vessel. Odyssey sustained minimal damage and Lawblight was disabled. Ordered crew to enter Drift and return to Absalom Station.
Mission Accomplished. Recommendation to induct all crew to full Society membership.
