The Squall-tiger is a fast beast, and sweeps over the ship before Thessaly's elemental can get hit it with magic, but she is able to affix a powerful binding curse upon it, slowing its movements enough for Cloud to blast it and the skies above with his appropriately named wind-wand. The massive bellow of wind clears a gap ahead of them, and true to Cutlass' words, the crew sees that Agyl Island is not far off. Indeed, the circle of open sky around the island is actually quite near. Above the island's corners, you see three spheres of brilliant gold Aura levitating, glimmering like the sun. The spheres exude a protective warmth, driving off any clouds and Squall-beasts that get too close to the island.
Yet, even this is not enough to deter the Squall-tiger's attack, as pillars of lightning strike the party once more as it passes overhead. Again you feel the beast's power from exposure to just a bit of the lightning, as even a small amount is incredibly painful.
>Everyone loses 1 Hit and 1 Wound
Although both ships are able to recover their allies in spite of the terrible storm, a powerful wave strikes the side of the Hidden Dagger,
nearly turning it onto its side, and the force flings Cutlass and several others overboard, tossing her into the churning waters.
"Captain!" several of the Hidden Dagger's
crew shouts, tossing lifelines to her and the other downed crew.
[1d10+2] Helplessness Recovery, if successful Cutlass can act this turn.
Before the Squall-tiger can leap away, Cerulean's lantern burns away a good portion of its side, causing it to roar with anger. As the fire burns it, Cerulean can feel her strength restoring, her flesh healing some of the burns caused by the lightning. The lantern's voice cries out with beastly joy, making wet chewing sounds and savage gulps.

Seeing the party so close to the perimeter of safety around Agyl Island, the Squall-tiger and a number of lesser Squall-beasts all gather together, weakened by the attacks but not yet giving up on taking these ships for their amusement. They charge forward in one final assault, hoping to get you before you can get to safety. "Almost there!!" Bee Holder cries, as she and the crew brace for impact.
