  • Session 48: Stealth Section

    "So, if the bastard didn't bother comin', what's he up to, eh?" Chopper demanded of the Wormwood officer, a Varisian man named Bintrim Whist. "Doloruso said Harrigan was sure his fleet would crush you." "He was mistaken," Feruzi said. "Yes, ma'am …

  • Session 53: BOOM

  • Session 2: Life Aboard Ship

    Posted by "Jennifer":http://www.obsidianportal.com/profile/Jennifer/ Ezikial looked up at the fat man blocking his path. "Well," he drawled. "I think--" the fat pirate staggered backwards clutching his groin from Ezikial's well-placed kick. He pulled …

  • Session 16: Good News

    As a city, Senghor was a bit on the small side, but large enough that the _Crisis_ brought little overt notice; they paid the docking fee and the officials became scarce. "We should set a watch on the ship and allow liberty in shifts," Feruzi commented …

  • Session 17: Tooth and Nail

  • Session 19: The Honeymoon

  • Session 39: Sorry Soiree

  • Session 40: Fire and Water

    "Perhaps we should go down to the grotto?" Feruzi asked. The guests were headed to bed and no amount of searching had revealed Sefina in or around the hold. "I think it would be a good idea to inform our trusted allies first. We should not leave our …

  • Session 43: Captains Who Want Things

    "So, just guessing from our previous behavior, we're not going to heed the warning and stop here, correct?" Feruzi asked. Ezikial grinned. "Do we at least have some kind of rotting curse repellent? "Verily, I have remembered to bring my own repellent …

  • Session 51: Didn't We Just Do This?

  • Session 52: This Also Seems Familiar

  • Session 57: Final Boss Fight

    Two boatswain's mates on the main deck moved toward the main mast. A charau-ka, an ape-like humanoid, readied a bomb while the more ordinary sailors cleared the deck, wanting to be as far away from the fighting as possible. The sniper in front of …
