Once the hungry sea scorpions are defeated and the party awakes, they can took stock of their surroundings.
“What happened?” Each PC’s last clear memory is of sitting down to dinner aboard the Jenivere. After that, there’s nothing but a confusing jumble of images, remembered as if in a dream—feelings of nausea, panic, fear, an drowning. The logical conclusion is that the Jenivere sank or wrecked, and the PCs washed up on the shore—although they’re not particularly wet, and someone stacked their gear in a pile for them.
“Where is the Jenivere?” It only took a few moments of scanning the northern vista to spot a familiar looking ship. This is the Jenivere, listing to port, partially submerged, and with her hull a gaping ruin as she leans against a jagged cliff side among several sharp rocks.
“Who are these other people?” The five NPCs who remain unconscious during the initial fight against the sea scorpions awoke soon after the fight ends. One other passenger, the Varisian scholar Ieana, is missing, as are all of the ship’s crew besides the one member in the party.
