Saturday lunchtime at 'The Sovereigns' in Woking means more 50 Fathoms.
Location: Brigandy Bay.
Now that we have sold our cargo, we are looking for a good price on goods to sell on. Unfortunately, Brigandy Bay is a 'consumer' and not a 'producer' of goods, so we don't find any good prices.
We are also looking for 'winter clothing' for the next part of our journey.
We find 'blue-bear' suits in a shop, but they are very expensive. Whilst negotiating with the shopkeeper Baxter had entered into an argument with him and was kicked out into the street. As he left he managed to sneakily steal a telescope.
Captain Shia haggles the the price down by trading in the treasure map we had just acquired for a big discount.
Upon returning to our ship, we spot the shopkeeper looking for something in the docks. It turns out he's looking for a ship.
Rackham approaches shopkeeper and convinces him to come aboard our ship.
At this time Aquirus disembarks and takes his leave of our company to go his own way.
Finally we set sail.
A few days out of Brigandy Bay and we spot something. We have encountered a frigate without any mast drifting in the sea.
Approaching closer, we see signs of a battle, cannon ball holes, bloated bodies on deck, etc. Then someone appears on deck, waves at us and collapses.
The frigate is named 'Conquistador', when we go aboard we find the collapsed man has been mutilated. Win attempts to heal him.
The man is named Jim Black. his ship was attacked by pirates. The captain decided to surrender, but the pirate captain had the crew butchered.
Jim Black tells
The description of the pirate captain matches that of James Lowe - the man we rescued when we left Coaker Mountain. The pirate ship, a galleon, was named 'Mad Dog'.
Jim Black tells us they were attacked some 2 hours ago.
We search the Conquistador and find no other survivors, just their personal effects. We also find a large supply of food in the cargo hold.
we decide to leave, towing the Conquistador behind us. It's slow going, but after a week of travel we arrive at Baltimus.
After docking, it takes a while to find a buyer for the food-salvage. But after some persuading we manage to sell it all.
We put the Conquistador in to 'drydock 3' for repairs.
I play, I paint.
