They make it back to land... and find themselves on the Island of Lost Souls... aka Ghost Island.

In thrall to the pirates. The disco pirates confer. Rockwell is philisophical. Rescued by mermaids Thalassa (Carla Tassara) and Bahari (Aydrea ten Bosch). Under the sea with sea horses! Arrival on the Island of Lost Souls... ...aka Ghost Island! A future adventure: Witnessesing the collapse of the Great Statue of Colussus. A future adventure: At the Sea of Eternity and Sunset.
