The Merfolk Rescue
At the behest of the Merfolk, Ramsey and crew set out to rescue two Mer who had been captured by Captain Douglas. They arrive at the location with the ship lights off to approach as covertly as they could. Then, Shan and Rathbone used a river and headed downstream into a cave, as quiet as mice. Once inside, they discovered two imprisoned merfolks whom they hurried to free.
As they search for a way to escape, they come face to face with Douglas. During the battle, Ramsey flew backward and triggered some kind of ancient mechanism, possibly a trap left behind to protect the shrine. A ghostly blue light flooded the cave and illuminated Douglas, cursing slowly his flesh into stone. Merfolk, Ramsey and his crew escaped just in time before the shrine collapsed.
