The crew docks on beach on a forgotten island, Father Captain Bingo Goodbeard has to stay on the ship as it is his gods holy day. There is debris from previously failed voyages to this island scatter across the beach. There are many bones of sailors and pirates covered in teeth marks. One skeleton has a massive pirate hat which Corus Ahlorsath] and Ace Featherstone both race to get it first. Corus Ahlorsath takes the hat as he is first in command in the absence of Father Captain Bingo Goodbeard. The hat exchanges heads and gets placed on a tree by Ace Featherstone but is eventually taken back by Corus Ahlorsath using his honed slight of hand skills.
The crew see smoke rises west part of the island and decide to invest it. To avoid the possible dangers and difficult terrain of the forest, they choose to walk along the coastline of the island. Suddenly a Giant boar and min boar rush out the bushes in a panicked state towards the crew. Corus Ahlorsath runs towards the sea, Ace Featherstone flies out the way. Shortly after two Allosaurus come charging out. Mayrog plays dead as the Allosaurus come closer and gets dinosaur drool over her. Corus Ahlorsath starts yelling and drawing attention to himself. The crew make short work of the Allosaurus, especially Ace Featherstone the tenderizer of dinosaurs punched the both them to death on the same one turn (double kill!).
As they continue their journey they spot giant scorpion and a mini scorpion. On this island it appears that living creatures have mini duplicates of themselves but it drains their life force (plot point). The crew now all have miniature version of themselves. When they get to the smoke they realize it's a campsite home to group of Gnolls. There is a fire pit in the center where they are sacrificing animals and throwing in barrels full of laughter (plot point) to appease their demon god. Ace Featherstone snuck around the campsite to take an inventory of available goods for stealing. He finds a treasure chest in the room of the Gnolls Clan Leader who is currently asleep. Corus Ahlorsath convinces the Gnolls that he is carrying out an inspection of the campsite. Both Ace Featherstone andCorus Ahlorsath work together speaking in primordial to open the chest which contains the Mace of Terror (pg 180 DMG). Corus Ahlorsath decides to hide the mace in his large pirate hat. As he exits the Gnolls notice he stored the mace and start to attack. Corus Ahlorsath uses the mace and scares off a majority of the Gnoll. One that brave manages to knock downCorus Ahlorsathand take back the Mace. But Ace Featherstone uses his fists of furry knocking down the gnoll, he then grabs the mace in midair. The rest of the crew run away into the forest before the Gnolls regroup. As they run they here the Gnoll clan leader shrieking in rage over the loss of his mace.
