The PCs wake up shipwrecked on an isolated island, unable to escape the archipelago while the unnaturally active volcanoes that surround it continue to generate vicious currents and tumultuous weather patterns. After awakening they are ambushed by aquatic savages before being introduced to one of the island's two unique native races. The PCs are tasked with saving the beleaguered tribe by completing an annual ritual and capturing a pubo, a misshapen and clumsy landlocked bird. This typically simple task will prove to be a far more dangerous endeavor than they expect however and they soon find themselves to be the prey! Should they survive the encounter the mystery of what plagues the dwindling population of islanders is slowly revealed in this first module in the Varakt's Halo adventure path!
