The team was awakened in the night to screaming from the hamster wheel room.  Flick (or was it Rick) was waiving a wrench in the direction of a wide-eyed, and quite nude, halfling woman who was in the hamster cage with one of the giant space hamsters.  The other hamster was missing!  After providing a robe, the team learned the woman, Tilly Tumblefur, was a werehamster!  She actually was the missing hamster!  She had been transformed into a werehamster by a wizard named Morlax in Realmspace.  She had escaped and fled to Bral where she hid among the giant space hamsters and happened to be the one purchased by the party’s tinker gnomes.  After talking for a while, they offered to allow her to join the crew if she would continue to serve as their motive power on the hamster wheel and take on the role of cook.  She readily agreed and was given a hammock in the wheel room instead of having to sleep in the hamster cage.

Several days later, The Perry came out of spelljamming speed beside an old green squidship named the Ombre Émeraude.  Atop the forecastle tools had been laid out in piles to spell out the word “Help.”  The group immediately noticed, much to their chagrin, that the air was stagnant and old.  It intermingled with their air, drastically cutting the amount of “safe” travel time available to the ship and crew.  They saw a beautiful pale-skinned woman by the stairwell, and she turned and fled down into the bowels of the ship.  The group crept out onto the ship and began to investigate.  It was eerily quiet.  They found the cargo bay doors open and the bay seemingly empty. 

The group opened a door and found the ship’s galley filled with the bones of 11 humans.  The bone piles were mostly stacked neatly, although a couple had toppled or been scattered.  Hekera examined them and determined they had been piled orderly and respectfully.  The bones had been separated though with neat cuts at the joints as if chopped apart by a large metal blade.  Disturbingly, he also noticed human teeth marks on the bones.  While within the galley, Snaggy and Khesen overheard a scratching sound followed by faint cries or screams.  They opened a door and found what appeared to be the pantry, and it was completely empty.  With dread, the party began to suspect perhaps a doomed crew had long ago resorted to cannibalism in an effort to survive!
