After killing a few more giant centipedes, we found the ship’s weapons locker– still sealed! We all have as much as we can carry. I even got new armor of Ysoki make, so at least one of the ships personnel was an Ysoki. Probably in engineering. In fact, we found a log of sorts detailing that the twelve survivors of the thirty-eight crew were leaving the ship and heading northwest to integrate with the native Telia, a rather non-tech people. The log entries kept mentioning Sprocket in engineering. I used to read the histories of Sprocket and Widget (namesake of my own Widget 2.0); I can’t imagine it is the same Sprocket. We would like to find this group– even after twenty-five years, there may be survivors still living here.
Only one problem. We cannot contact our ship. We are not sure if Brock and I-9 aren’t receiving our hails, or are, and we aren’t hearing their replies.
