Lost Harbor
We return to the fourth night of survival in wherever we are, with most of the party reunited at camp. Jude is sick from a spider bite, and some of us are tending to her as best we can with limited medical supplies. For the rest, your preparations to see the night through must be in order as the hour grows late.

ACTION> While dawn is a great time for fishing, over the course of the morning the net only manages to catch two fish by the time the sun has risen substantially.
NAV Lt Navarro 08-Jan-2020 22:40:28
CMO: That's good news.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Jan-2020 22:41:24

CSO Cdr Wright 08-Jan-2020 22:45:14
:: thirsty, gulps down another couple leaves of rainwater, trying to hydrate well for the journey knowing there is plenty for everyone and they can't take it with them.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Jan-2020 22:45:14
::Begins to follow the river downstream, listening to the various animals calls, and etheral echoes of their chaotic thoughts.

SCI LtJG Jude 08-Jan-2020 22:45:49

MED Lt Acacia 08-Jan-2020 22:50:13

:: abandons her shoes and collects her big rainwater collecting leaves, making sure at least one of the torches are lit before dousing the fire ::

CSO: Well, guess he wasn't in so much of a hurry after all.

All: Well, we should get going.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Jan-2020 23:02:39
