Dreams On The Shiv
Each of these describe dreams that party members have had or that other characters have described to them since being shipwrecked on Smuggler’s Shiv.
You’re back aboard the Jenivere, bent over the railing being seasick. After your latest bout of retching, you slump back and see the rest of the passengers and crew are on deck as well, all of them sick save for the captain and the quiet Valerian scholar Ieana. She whispers in the captain’s ear, then gives him a kiss on the cheek.
At that point the captain holds up a wooden soup spoon, and you realize that you’re holding one as well. Everyone has a spoon.
The ship is sinking, and the only way to stop it is to bail out the hold with your spoon. You work feverishly, but the waters keep rushing in. Just before you wake, you can see monstrous things with pincers in the water trying to claw their way into the ship.
Eyes In The Jungle
Two red eyes appear to stare at you from within the jungle. It is too dense and dark to see to whom or what they belong. You can do nothing but stare back. Just before awaking, something large and red leaps out at you, but before you can see what it is, a giant green snake appears and swallows it up, then turns its attention to you, at which point you awake in a cold sweat.
No Soup For You
You’re sitting down in the galley aboard the Jenivere, getting ready for your meal. The ship’s cook has given you a steaming bowl of soup, but you drop your spoon. You see that the deck below is covered with seawater up to your ankles, and your dropped spoon has sunk into the water and washed out to se through a hole.
You’re forced to lift your delicious bowl of soup to your lips and drink. But something big goes into your mouth as you do so, and you feel a sharp bite on your tongue.
You drop the bowl, only to reveal a serpent had hidden in your soup that now dangles from your tongue as it chews furiously. You start awake, biting your own tongue in an attempt to bite through the snake’s body.
