It is going to be seven days to Brigandy Bay in a small skiff with limited supplies, seven days in cramped conditions with a small crew and no defences. Despite the dire circumstances we set sail with Pots filling the sail, enhancing our speed in the hope of shaving some time off the journey, taking a course using the seas currents to our advantage. Six hours in we spot a dark area in the seas ahead and change heading for an intercept course. As we get closer we find a ship wrecked, [[The Layla’s Pride]] and as it turns out had the same issues as the Rebecca, all apart from the burning bit and giant ape that is.
The lone survivor, a self important Scurillian, Equais is taken on board. She was measuring the water depth and has many maps as she has been surveying the world. From her estimates the water is continuing to rise which is more of a concern for the land dwellers. With another body on board it is now a very tight fit and Equais seems very, well bossy and she even starts throwing some of the yellowback meat overboard as it was smelly and we shouldn’t eat it. I don’t think anyone would disagree that it was smelly and that we would rather eat something else but we had no choice.
The days slowly went by with the water dwellers taking time to swim in the ocean and get off the boat to stretch, we survived a storm and Hopper went fishing as a giant school of tuna swam by. Towards the end of day five we spot a clipper circling the area and in our wisdom we head towards them. After a brief conversation with the captain the clipper sailed away and we realised that the pirates we just encountered deemed us too small a fish to even bother plundering. We must be in a bad state.
Half way through day seven we arrived in Brigandy Bay, a free town, the only free town which was setup by the pirates. We all disembark the skiff and head for the nicest tavern in town, The Black Queen, we each get a room so we can have some space, followed by some food and drinks. Teran unfortunately does not get a room, it seems that Edda Elamis an old flame works at the tavern and things did not end well. It seems that there are a few different stories on the way it ended and Teran’s version is not the one that his one-time friend Rogar Reddergar and her new love told her. Teran Terik though has taken some solace in that she now has fallen so low as to work in an establishment like this that on the surface he doesn’t seem to care.
Ella Valham decides to go for a walk outside in the search of some open space and just outside the door is Prickly Pete, an obnoxious, womanising old man. After knocking back his advances Ella heads back indoors and Pete follows. A young human named, Lewis Robertson, watches as Pete follows Ella and as Pete starts to climb the stairs he grabs Pete and gets a drinking game going in the disguise of a previous meeting where Pete owed him some money. In the end Pete was so drunk that he passed out and then thrown out of the Tavern. Ella who was watching from the top of the stairs came down to thank Lewis for helping her out.
The next day, on a rumour, we head down to the docks and find ourselves a job on the Witches Brew and make a deal with the Captain Bryn Brokar to work for food and lodging in exchange for any working ship we can find. Now we have a job we just need to get ourselves a ship so we can head towards The Teeth where there is apparently an arch mage, something Pots is very keen on.
