The crew called out the alert. “Body off the port! Possible survivor!” The team remembered that people lost in the Flow who ran out of oxygen did not perish but instead petrified. These drifting individuals sometimes floated into the gravity plane of passing ships weeks, years, or even centuries later. They remained petrified for an hour or so before their flesh returned to normal; most survived the process, but some died in the transition back.

Not long ago, the team had rescued Faylen Windstrider, an elven veteran of the Unhuman Wars some four centuries earlier, from a similar fate as well as the new team member, Snagyndar. Who might this person be? From where had they originated? How long had they been out here?

As the body drifted closer, they could see it was tiny, only about three and a half feet tall. It was solid gray in color currently, of course. It was about the size of a goblin, halfling, or gnome. Its head resembled that of an octopus with four short tentacles around the mouth. They immediately thought “mind flayer” but had never heard of one so short. Normally they were slightly taller than an adult human male. What was this thing? The group tied up the body and threw a sack over its head.  When it revived, they began talking to it.  It introduced itself as Wizzlecrank.  After talking a while, they learned this creature is a gnome ceremorph, a lesser version of a mind flayer.  They learned out here it seems disconnected from the hive mind but still possessed a wealth of knowledge.  It had much in common with the tinker gnomes; in fact, it had served as a similar role on a nautiloid 230 years earlier.  After much discussion, they struck an agreement with the creature.  They would take it back to Greyspace and it would work on The Perry to help with repairs.  It started with the door frame of the shrine on the cargo barge.  Although nervous, the tinker gnomes were intrigued by this strange guest.
