Rolf cracked the hatch in his escape pod and climbed out. He stood, peering at the world around him. There wasn't much to see, as far as he could tell. Not far below him was a bench that looked like it afforded a somewhat better view, maybe. He rolled down the hill, collecting the brown dirt on his uniform as he went.
"Brawzen is going to kill me for ruining another suit," he muttered to himself as he clambered up onto the bench. He still couldn't see anything. The entire area was covered in a layer of thick, white cloud-like stuff. However, he could smell brine. "The sea!" he shouted, tumbling down from his perch and rolling over to the edge of the hill.
While he had been a captain of his own ship for a long time now, as a wee beanian lad, Rolf had dreams of being a captian of the 18 seas. Nowadays travel by boat was considered a joke, what with intergalatic trade much more profitable and much faster than being guided by the wind and the waves.
A loud beep and a crackly radio voice distracted him from his daydreaming. "Captain! Captain! Are you there? Come in, Captain!"
He fumbled for the switch on his communicator. "This is Captain Rolf. Report," he replied, turning the volume up.
"This is Zana. I'm here with Brawzen. It seems we crashed on an alien planet. Where are you, Captain? Brawzen and I will join you!"
"Let me scout out the area and I will let you know when I figure out where we are. Over and out." Rolf stuck the communicator's mic back into his front pocket and peered straight down the hill. There was a road...Maybe following it would bring him answers. He tucked himself back into a ball and rolled down the mountain.
Rolf came to a rest in front of what looked to be an official building. At least, it had a sign and a flag and that was good enough for the captain. He rolled into the front door, mentally shaking his head. "Poor security they got here, to just let anyone in," he muttered under his breath, convienently forgetting that was how he was able to get in so easily. Rolf climbed up what looked like another entrance, about 4 stories up by his estimate, and slid into the slot.
He fell into a pile of red envelopes, which is not where he expected to end up at all. With a sigh, Rolf set about opening all the envelopes in his reach, hoping for more clues about where he was since he still couldn't find an information desk. He set the contents of the envelopes in order around him.
"What is this place?"
Rolf left behind a code. Collect all the codes from the crew to find the ship.
