Passage to Ataraxia

Session One

Go For Broke

Isini awoke with a yawn and a smile on the small dirigible headed for the Calamshani shore, and found himself completely alone. A refreshing stroll around the decks turned into a frantic search when he realized his friend, and incidentally the pilot of the ship, was missing.
