Misadventures of the Regal Drake
Part III: A Premature End

June 18

     We have encountered a myterious object on the eastern shoreline. It appears to be a metallic ball fused within the hard rock. Some of the crew believe it is not of this world, while others consider it a sign from God or an omen or some other nonsense. Since all evidence suggests we are the first humans to set foot on this island, I have concluded that good, scientific reasoning and deduction exposes it as nothing more than a remarkable natural formation. I am alone in this opinion. The wise man in the galley known as 'The Sage' has predicted that this object will somehow put a premature end to our journey, and this has the crew even more agitated than usual. If I'm not mistaken, I have reason to believe there are rumblings of mutiny, but I fear it not. Calm, decisive leadership will prevail. I am certain my next entry will tell of return to the harmony, good will, and hope with which this voyage began...
