The survivors of the Giant Aligator attack, Gregory (real name Mogdar), and Ren gather the remaing supplies from their dead friends and continue to follow the map toward their treasure. Not too long and the pair reach the shore. Scouting forward they find an entrance to a cave near where the “X” is on the map!
Seeing some tracks and not eager to go into the cave, Gregory sets a trap near the entrance then both he and Ren fall back to hide among the rocks. A short while later they hear some people walking up behind them.
There is a quick battle where the two fight off what appear to be four cultists. After dispatching two of the four (and injuring a third), Ren recognizes his father! They are able to revive one of the two that had fallen and attended to the wounds of the third.
Talking with his father, Jack, Ren hears the story of a desperate town fallen on hard times that fell under the spell of a charismatic cult leader whose name was Sam. The fishing in the area had bad luck and when they joined the cult things got better. Jack and his friends were on the way to bring the offering to Water god.
They set up Jack’s friends with a fire to keep them comfortable while they recovered from their injuries and the three of them went back to the cave to bring the offering and investigate.
They quietly enter the dark cave and light a torch. In the main entrance they find two exits, to the right they discover a bedroll and some pouches of food. To the left they find a narrow corridor that bends to the right in a gentle arc. The get around the bend and see unbelievable creatures.
The creatures initially use a net on Ren’s father Jack and take him out of the fight. There is some back and forth in the fight, but Ren and Gregory prevail.
After tying up the survivors, they search the rest of the cave and find an unusually placed locked door. Behind it they find the old pirate treasure!
