The ship is filled with an air of somber and grief at the events of the last few days. We left Sitara’s family and headed down the coast to find a village by the name of Callica in ruins, as if an attack had recently taken place. Our search found no people in the village and an Oami caravan. It was the caravan of Dasha’s family, however it too was abandoned. Mesi realized that the tracks we found on the beach were that of a Ta Atouan raiding ship, and that the inhabitants of the village as well as Dasha’s family had been taken as slaves. We rushed off to intercept the ship and save them, fully aware of our low odds of success. Using Mesi and Diallo’s status as criminal against the state, we got them onto the ship under the guise of prisoners and started to try and strike up a trade for cargo. I slipped away into lower decks to try and free the enslaved rowers, and the surprise attack began. When the battle ended the entire slaver crew had been killed, and we had lost three of our own. Shakeel, Nimat, and Kamal. I did not know them well, but they followed Sitara loyally until the end and have my respect and gratitude. I only wish I could have done more to prevent their deaths. One of the slaves who knew trade and helped me organize the slaves during the battle, Idowu Idr, has taken up a leading role for the liberated slaves. They plan on taking their ship to the Free Isles and will likely spread the word of our ship and crew... I don’t claim to be a leader, I’ve never had the talent or desire to do so and I hold Sitara’s skill at it in high regard. Losing her crew members has sent her into depression, but hopefully she will come out stronger and even more determined to stop this from happening again. We are heading back to the village that had been raided, and will begin to rebuild as well as give the crew time to grieve.
