I awoke (or at least I think I awoke)disoriented, sick, weak, and unsure of where I was. I was sure I was dreaming at first. Being in a foreign location and unsure of who I was led me to believe that was the logical conclusion. I was in a room of stone covered with arcane markings floating through what seemed to be the outer planes. Two beings whom I didn’t recognize were woken with me, and seemed to be just as disoriented. I at first assumed they were symbols of my dream just as the arcane markings also seemed to be.
It wasn’t long before I was convinced that this was not a dream, and my companions were real. It was then I started hearing the voices. There were many voices, but the only one I could make out and understand was one identifying itself as our ship. It helped me learn to activate the doors of the ship using the control panel and telling me I had to make my way to the heart of the ship.
I’m not sure why I am on this ship, wbere we are, or where we are going, but I still feel as if I belong here. I think I may have been a crewman, or perhaps an important consultant, for the journey. My companions don’t seem to have similar skills. I don’t understand what their reason for being here could be, but I cannot deny that their martial prowess will come in handy.
We managed to find some supplies and other controls. We managed to release what I can only assume were other crew members or possibly passengers from stasis a little ways into the ship, whereupon we were immediately attacked by some alien beings. Or rather, the ones we released were attacked. I attempted to study the creatures as my companions fought them, but they ultimately proved hostile and dangerous, making study impractical. I sealed off our section of the ship as best I could. We defeated the few creatures that stayed behind, though I wish I could have had more time to study them. They were violent and mindless, or perhaps just completely foreign, but magnificent in their own way.
I think my best course of action now is to get to the heart of the ship. The elf has misgivings, thinking the ship is against us if it even is the ship speaking to me, and she may be right. But, its worth the risk if I can learn about and control this ship and these creatures.
