The shot from the blunderbuss was fired towards the back of the boat where the hatch from the cabin comes out. You think that something was coming out of the ship.

Hob Henderson
HP: 1; LP: 1; Condition: Normal

Hob shook his massive head sadly. "Looks like we've got another deader in here, poor blighter couldn't even finish his supper." He leaned back a bit and held the door open for Elizabeth to take a look or scan it with her contraption. The hatchway down looked like it was going to be a tight fit.

>OOC: Hold the door open for a moment, in case anyone wants a look. Once they're done (or if no one wants a look), he will move inside, to see if he can fit down the ladder.

Manchester looks down at the goblin, "how the hell should I know where it went? Besides it was pretty obvious the 'temporalis im pacem' spell was put up here in the drydock. Whatever it was would have had enough time to get off the boat well before then. Lady Elizabeth, are we going to do a full autopsy or just leave the poor buggers here? There may be other clues on the bodies."

Iggy holds up hands and backs away making it clear that the archaeologist was on his own with regards to icky dead body things.

He does his float-arm-reel thing up to the deck of the ship to join his other companions. "While there is a slight possibility of something down there, it is most likely monster-creature is in London eating people. We are here now mostly to search for people who could be alive and bleeding out and to search for clues as to what this thing is or where it was picked up or what to fight it with. At this point, haste over caution is recommended; the longer we take the more Londoners it eats. Iggy says with customary bluntness.

Elizabeth responds, "Definitely do a full autopsy. We should also search the ship for evidence of what beastie is responsible." She moved toward the open door leading down.

Looking at Hob, she said "Let's see if we can find clues below."

"All of them or just this one?" Manchester pulls out a small medical bag and pulls out a scalpel."Lets begin".

"Quicker if we split up." Iggy says. "You have a short-wave communicator, yes? We can stay in touch." Iggy says pointing to the small comm antenna on the suit.

"I'll go down the hold area." he says, moving to the hold hatch. "I'll call if I need help getting something off high shelf." he teases with a sardonic grin.

You lever the heavy hatch cover off. To the side of the hatch there are steep steps leading inro the hold. You smell the hint of alcohol and tar and damp. What you don't smell is blood. The lighting is very dim down there. You will need a torch or a light source to make out further details, even with your sharp goblin eyes.

Iggy flips down his night vision goggles as he descends into the hold.

The hold is mostly empty. There are 7 hammocks in here. 3 empty. There are obviously bodies in the other four There are sea chests at the foot of each hammock. There is a door at the back of the hull. You suspect it leads to the captain's cabin. Whatever goods the vessel was carrying are gone.

Elizabeth walked into the ship and found the dead bodies. A normal person would be fazed, but a normal person does not build their own clockwork armor. She began to search the sea chests with her X-ray vision device, looking for items that might be interesting, papers, shipping manifests, journals and the like.

The chests are locked but it is easy to find the keys on the bodies, especially with x-ray vision. There is a bottle of cheap grog in one. There is tobacco and a pipe in another. Most of them have a coin pouch and clothes. There isn't a huge amount of money in them. One of them has a small painting of a middle-aged woman and a child. There are boots and wet weather gear hanging up. The clothes have a sailors knife on the beltImage

"I found many crew dead in the hold. No cargo. Unless they were hauling dead crew intentionally... which seems improbable." Iggy says into the commlink the realize Elizabeth was in the same place he was, especially as she, presum ably, has a light source with her. "Ack! I thought you were going with orc valet." He say to her. "No matter. I will check in Captain's cabin through that door. Yell if you need something... or if something is ripping your face off. I will likewise." Iggy says.

He opens the door to where he thinks the Captain's Cabin is. If nothing jumps out and tries the face ripping thing he will reel himself into the Cabin and look around.
