    Skald goes below.

    Meanwhile, Kabsi doesn't find any signs of injury on the person.

    Kabsi pauses. He was here to recover an ally's remains, but this man threw a bit of a wrench in his plans. Ultimately, he decided that, as a healer, his living patient was of a greater priority. He remembered reading that above water doctors had some sort of alchemical agent for waking people up called "smelling salts", but seeing as they didn't work underwater he'd never invested in a set of them. Instead, he lightly slapped the man across the face until he opened his eyes.

    Rhoha

    Opening his eyes to see Kabsi standing over him and feeling no lingering pain from his wounds, Rhoha grins and says, "Rhoha thanks Kabsi for the healing, but even a foe like the Fish man and his pet cannot best Rhoha!"

    Rhoha stands on the deck of the ship about to say more, but looks puzzled for a moment looking slightly upwards at Kabsi and asks, "Why Kabsi taller than Rhoha?"

    Skald nods his head slowly, probably longer than is comfortable. "I don't know what you are now, Rhoha. But I know why you are ..... you," and with this he gestures to Rhoha generally.

    Even an inch shorter than Kabsi, Skald is still three inches taller than "Rhoha" is now. "What do you make of that?" asks Skald to Kabsi, gesturing to this "Rhoha's" hair that seems to whip about by a breeze not felt by either of you.

    "But it all makes sense now. Skephilipika was protective of his territory .... had a powerful animal pet .... and was tougher to fight from Kabsi's description than brawn alone would indicate. My guess is that he had nature magic that enhanced his prowess, and that he .... well, he had you reincarnated, Rhoha. The kopru is apparently a druid like me. Well, not like me, as I'm a storm druid, but you get the point."

    Kabsi shrugs. "Hard to say. What's important is that our ally is not currently dead, which is a definite improvement over where I thought he'd be when I woke up." He then puts his hand on Rhoha's shoulder, which was significantly lower than it used to be "But this is a big change. How are you feeling, emotionally speaking?"

    Rhoha

    While Skald and Kabsi discussed Rhoha’s altered form, Rhoha was inspecting himself visually where he could and patting down places he couldn’t see like his head (no longer bald) and his features (Nose the wrong shape, ears weird).

    When Kabsi asks him how he feels, Rhoha is staring at his hands. Hands that lack the signs of broken knuckles and scars that Rhoha’s fist fighting style inevitably leads to. ”How Rhoha feels?...” Rhoha says softly in his new higher pitched voice, “Rhoha feels like hunting down Fishman and fashioning a goblet from it’s skull.”

    With a grumbling sigh, Rhoha continues, “But saving Farshore comes first. We here to turn half ship into whole ship? Fine. Rhoha find time later to hunt.”

    "SHIP AHOY!" calls Skald very excitedly and unnecessarily loudly in both of your ears, as he points out further into the bay.

    There she is, incoming, maybe a mile out .... the Blue Nixie.

    Kabsi nods at Skald's announcement before turning to face Rhoha. "You were very, very dead before the kopru showed you mercy by reincarnating you, so a modicum of respect is called for." As he made his way to the side of the ship, an odd sense of schadenfreude hit him; maybe now that Rhoha saw that there are consequences to running headfirst so much, perhaps he wouldn't be so insufferable and convinced of his invincibility. He put one leg on the railing, a smirk plastered over his face. "If you're still bothered by this turn of events, just remember one thing: You could have reincarnated into a cute halfling girl instead. Think of all the pretty little dresses you missed out on!" he says, sticking out his tongue before leaping off the side.

    And where does Kabsi go? Does he go back to shore to let the others know? or farther out to greet the Blue Nixie?

    And Rhoha?

    Kabsi made his way back to the shore; trying to meet an approaching ship was a tricky business, and it was all too easy to get rammed by it in the attempt. Better that he be at the shore where they're more likely to weigh anchor. And if they are heading to the ship, it's only a little swim to get there and a better angle to approach them regardless.

    Kabsi will inform the rest of the party of Rhoha's changed status, as well as the fact that Skald had spotted the Blue Nixie from his vantage point at the ship. There wasn't much to do until it weighed anchor, however, so he waited at the camp, doing miscellaneous bits of clean up in the mean time.

    Rhoha

    Grumbling as Kabsi flees after his insults, Rhoha sits down to meditate and take stock of his new form. Before entering his trance, Rhoha says, "Rhoha needs to feel changes. Can someone keep watch on Rhoha?"

    Hoggie nods hesitantly before sitting cross legged on the sand, observing Rhoha and petting Rusty.

    Hoggie nods to Kabsi before sitting in the sand and petting Rusty, looking to the water to wait for Skald or new-Rhoha to return from the ship, or for representatives from the Blue Nixie to make their way.

    Back on the ship, which is where Rhoha is and Hoggie isn't, Skald says, "We should get back to shore to meet with the others before your meditation. Can you still swim like before?"

    Rhoha

    Grumbling and uncomfortable to admit weakness Rhoha speaks hesitantly, ”Rhoha not sure... everything feels... Raw. Unstructured and unstable. Rhoha also feels... less than before. Rhoha can swim, but will be defenseless.”

    Upon Sklad’s request, Rhoha will attempt the swim to shore. Unarmored and not showing his previous ease in the water.

    Show
    Full Round action Swim checks. Success is 15 feet of progress, Failure by 4 or less is no progress, failure by 5 or more is going underwater. Rhoha would take 10 if he can for 19. Otherwise rolls are in the spoiler below for the first Minute.
