As she takes her seat in the boat, Calina finds herself next to the detached tentacle. It rests limply on a fishing net. The appendage looks pretty much like a squid tentacle, but has some large bulges towards its tip.

Despite fear to touch the tentacle, Calina is intrigued by the bulges. Maybe if they can cut it open they might learn more of this thing.

" Comrades, what do you make of these bulges?

Yemon considers his answer carefully. "Maybe there's something inside? I don't think squids give off light usually. We could cut it open and see."

There are scaling and gutting knives on the fishing boat if you are keen to pursue this course of action.

Yemon is content to let smarter people decide what to do next.

Dersu runs his hands through his hair.
"We should get rid of it. It's bad augury, and their might be more of those things."

"I don't know, shouldn't we know more about what attacked us? It might give valuable information."

Although scared to touch, Calina is intrigued by it too.

Ota gingerly prods the tentacle with his foot. Nothing awful happens... for now.

Manabu looks at the remains of the creature. He says, "I agree with Yemon and Calina." He picks up a knife.

"YES! Get rid of it!" exclaims Dersu, mumbling to Bear under his breath.

Good, good. Are you going to slice into a bulbous bit?

The blade cuts in after Manabu applies some pressure. There is an evil hissing noise and a faint scent of rotten yuzu as the sac deflates.

Dersu may make an Identify (R) roll here.

Dersu can't bear to look, but he is compelled to watch.

The gas has the whiff of some old technology, but Dersu can't quite put his finger on it. When the sac is fully deflated the tentacle flops over on the deck, bringing a cartilaginous protrusion into view.

Manabu moves closer to the tentacle, prodding the protrusion with his knife. Yes, the knife is his, now. He looks up to the others. "Any idea what we've got, here?"

Calina can't remember she ever has seen anything like it.

"No, I don't think so Manabu."

The protrusion is vaguely conical and has a seam down its side. It looks like a beak that has fused shut. The pointy end of the cone has an opening about the diameter of a chopstick, and the cartilage inside has a metallic sheen. The gassy smell is here also, but not as strongly as in the gas sac itself.

Metallic cartilage...we might be on a trail here. Might this be some technology that has been lost as far as we know?

"Can we find out more about this? Where does this come from?"

It looks more natural than technological to you -- a bit like mother of pearl perhaps? But the gas smell is other way around: technological rather than natural.
