With Kraken Jack’s life kept safe, the Neptune fully paid off, the crew and I were slightly beside ourselves of what to do. There were many different tasks and opportunities abound, offering their share of doubloons and an innumerable number of treasures from days long since past. However, before we could begin our quest to understand what foul magic continued to sink Caribdus under the swelling seas, we had to get our ship careened and prepare ourselves for our voyage. We set sail to Swindon, preparing to dock within its port and rid ourselves of the parasites growing along our hull. In this town, we found more hearty souls willing to join the crew and we even encountered a young Kehana that wished to join us. He offered us another coin of Redbeard’s treasure and even knew where the secret island was where his horde was supposedly found. However, the only issue was that his previous captain was the original owner of the map.
As luck would have it, Captain Abdullah and his fierce crew descended down upon us. I am certain they thought themselves of great, powerful, and in the advantage with their numbers and skill. Never doubt the power of a Grael, two mages, and a crew hardened by the nightmares that the seas of Caribdus holds. While the enemy had their own powerhouse, he was no match compared to our Gronk and he recklessly savaged his own comrades in pursuit of us. However, even though the Kehana died, we successfully broke the will of our enemies and they broke and ran. I will not be known as a captain who can be cowered though, my father was a kind man but a demon of his own right upon his ship. We hunted down Captain Abdullah and when he grievously harmed Black Anne, I ran him through and watched the life drain from his eyes. We took the map, the extra coin, and made our way back to the Neptune to escape the ire of the town guard.
With the map in hand, we set sail for Redbeard’s treasure. Little seemed to bother us until a massive storm approached unlike any I have ever seen. This was the storm my crew had seen Redbeard’s ship within, and again he appeared like a sword parting water. Undead rushed upon my ship, seeking our death, but the crew and I mustered our courage and fought back against the terrible beings. Quickly, they were cut down and we dropped their filthy corpses back into the deep. No curse would scare us off, Redbeard’s treasure will soon be ours!
