Having switched back into his civilian identity, Shoutarou calmly walks up to the group talking to the little girl.

"I can teach you music if you'd like to learn it." He says with a smile. "I'm Shoutarou, by the way."

"Yes, well... I think we should be preparing," Magiries says, more than a little flummoxed by the sudden adoption of a random child.

You all take shelter from the coming storm in the goat barn, convincing Elisande to stay with you.  Your sleep is restful.

However, you are all awakened before dawn.  Somewhere in the night sky above the thunderclouds, Selune has raised an old moon: a slim, fading crescent.  In the wind and rain, its light is lost to you.  However, through the sheets of water, a pale glow and swirl of fog unaffected by the storm approach the landing.  Screams of the damned ride the wind.

"And here I am without a cannon." The currently unmasked hero sighs.

"Anybody got a spyglass? It would help if we could see how many dead we need to put to rest."

"Do you know how much those things cost. *Mutters under breath* Pricey enough they keep them in locked cabinets. Ahem. *Continues*. Okay, so there actually is a ghost ship? Fuck. Can we take it? Not if we're badly outnumbered. Can we run? Well, we have a sailor and there has to be *some* boat around this place we can nick. So is the storm or the dead more likely to kill us all. Decisions, decisions."

Enar calmly starts making a last check-up of her gear.

:"Run away? In one of the local boats? With this weather?  May as well cut our own throats, trust me, we have  better odds making a stand here no matter what's inside that boat."

The paladin then shouts to anybody who may be hearing:

:"Hear me good people of this island! The undead are coming! We'll stand against them! I ask that you stand with us! Grab your weapons and raise! Raise and fight! Fight for your lives!"

She doesn't really hope that anybody will answer but worth a shot anyway.

"... Of course it bloody is. I am so wholly unsurprised that this storm makes getting off this island suicidal that I guess I'll just have to deal with some vast horde of ghouls and geists. Well, it's a good story to go down with."

"Um, I'm all for the heroic defeat of a ghost ship or whatever, but...

...we don't need to fight them strictly head-on. Wouldn't we stand a better chance if we could lure them into a bottleneck of sorts?"

Magiries gets to her feat, already equipping armour.

"It may be possible to push towards the cave that the villagers didn't want found. Although I recall some pressure not to enter, perhaps we can shelter there and persuade the villagers in. Regardless, as it lies down a ravine..."

"Not much time left, I'm guessing."

Desperate times call for desperate measures and so on.

"Let's set fire to the houses. If the villagers think we're out to get them before they're overrun by undead, they will flee faster. It's a disgusting tactic, but it might work."

:"Did you happen to see any oil storage? A big box of alchemist's fire? Because with this weather we would need a miracle to start even a small bonfire going otherwise."

Then she turns to scream at the villagers again:

:"So are you just going to sit in your houses and wait to die? Sure we slayed your previous leaders, but they were rotten to the core! I understand if you hate us, but then you'll never get your revenge if you let the undead kill you now. Living on, that is the best revenge! So come with us to the cave, it's the best defensible position on this island, and who knows you'll get a shot at backstabbing us after we take out this undead crew!"

The only response to Enar's shout are some unusual sounds coming from the village.  You then hear the sound of a door being broken down.

:"Well crap seems like they've landed, ah well there's worst ways to go than fighting an horde of evil skeletons."

:"With me! Fight the undead scourge!"

Enar rushes towards the sound of the broken door, sword and shield in hand, rain falling down her hair, hoping at least the rest of the party follows.

Aval:

"Well, I was never one for famous last stands, but I don't think there's a choice. I guess I'll go down fighting!"

And he follows.

"FOR JUSTICE!"

Quickly donning the rest of his "hero gear", Kamen Rider Kaitou runs to the aid of his valiant ally!

You see a group of shambling undead led by a spectral wizard taking villagers prisoner and leading them to the landing.

Kamen Rider Kaitou attempts to rally his allies to battle through the use of appropriately dramatic music.
