TL;DR: Kyull the Tortle knows how to drink, Tortle Island is quiet, and there’s griffins at Griffin’s Roost! See Ayten's Recap
I needed some goddamn fresh air, so I went with some others to Omgar, the paradise island of these turtle dudes. The trip started fun enough by getting absolutely wasted with Kyull at the bar. Next thing we knew, we got an enterprising young fisherman named Hamilton to take us over to the island, which seemed to be...moving? He was a nice enough dude and I think with the right training, I could make a real sailor out of him. It’s weird teaching people to sail...without the pirate stuff.
Honestly, not much to see at the island. Things were certainly fun enough. Great food, great drink, sharing stories with with the turtle dudes, but these other groups that have been here pretty much cleared Omgarr out of treasure. There are tons of stories and rumors of stuff, but nothing new that we found that Ayten, Bennie and the others hadn't seen before...until we came on the crazy giant lizards we called Valaquaraptors. I think we found a nest or something. Luckily Ayten and Bennie distracted them while we ran into the nest to find an old corpse with some loot on him. I got a nice ring and we all got some treasure. Poor guy was some kind of minor noble from Sanctus. I guess we’ll never know for sure now that Omgar is moving on.
And speaking of Omgar moving on, we had to take off ASAP before the island left us too far from the rainy hellhole of Black River Island. As Hamilton took us away, we spotted a large structure at the top of the cliffs to the east of the island. Luckily enough, there was a seaside cave entrance to take us up; unluckily enough it was filled with those stupid sahaguins that have attacked BRI before...and some goddamn rust monsters that ruined my axe, and soem kind of weird ooze thing, and some undead, but the real prize was at the top. Motherfuggin Griffins! And they had eggs! Ayten made sure we didnt harm them and they didnt hurt us, but we need to find a way to secure this fort, dubbed “Griffin’s Roost”. It’s clearly the best place to watch for incoming ships or lead an eastern signal point. You can even see the island from the top! It would also be fuggin sweet to ride some griffins and drop in on these hag bitches!
