Our Pirates make way to Rickety Squib’s to disguise their ill gotten ship from Captain Harrigan. After a some minor course adjustments, a signal flag is spotted and the ship is turned into the cove. Rickety himself comes out to fleece the new blood, who are more than willing to turn over treasures to him.
Fipps Chumlett and Syl Lonegan are sold into slavery. Maybe this will give them time to reunite after she dumped him for Doc and Doc for Pugg.
The heat was oppressive and everyday Doc had to buff up the crew. While the crew gets ready for some nine pins, a water naga attacks and drags Tashi into the river. Doc and Soleh spring into action and dive in. Mifune and Juan are a little slower but join the attack after creating a boat. The water naga is slain and Doc tries to find some other underwater intelligent creatures.
A couple days later the village was attacked by a swarm of giant wasps. Tashi was carried off by the wasps never to be seen again. The pirates did rescue Hadalya from the wasps who was grateful to Mifune.
