We plodded around in the wreckage a bit more, and realized that we had best get some rest, as this planet has an 18-hour day cycle. It also still has a lot of tectonic activity; we were greeted during the night by what sounded like eathquakes.
This morning, we decided try a few more hails for our ship, and, giving up, headed toward where the surviving crew of the Vengeance had planned to go. Unfortunately, we had to swim most of it. Widget flew ahead a bit to warn us of anything dangerous. Of course, the danger was in the marshy waterways. A few times a giant centipede got close to us. Lexx threw a stun grenade at one. And while it didn’t kill it, it did alert a humongous swamp eel, which appeared right below the centipede… and ate it. We were very quiet after that. We eventually got to a (swampy) lake were some 8′ tall, multicolor-furred striders were grazing. We could finally see the clear sky too. Maybe we can contact our ship. Or at least spot it!
