The group set out on a fact finding mission. The mission was to set off for Mackerel Jack’s to gather information on Ziva. The group consisted of Salty Pete, Gramzy, Cornelious, Oli, and Signet. The group headed to the Missing Scales and to Black Garter, but with little result. On the way through town they encountered Captain Tobias ‘Balloon Swallower’, who appeared to be beating the town at liar’s dice. As the rest of the day had been a bust the group sat down for some high stakes gambling, little did they know how high stakes it would be. The game quickly escalated, and before they knew it Capt Tobias was ‘all in’ on one round of liar’s dice. Captain Tobias called lair, and lost his ship….the Twilight Runner. The group was a little suspicious of their new acquisition, however it was a fine vessel so to the seas it went.
Salty Pete was promoted to Captain and the Twilight was renamed the ‘Ships and Dip’. On day two of sailing the skies became stormy. The seas parted revealing a huge shark…..and the old tale of Fin Fin – the ghost shark was quickly remembered. The tale states that Fin Fin was finally killed by a captain ages ago, and to this day he haunts who ever serves as captain of the Blood Dawn every evening. The battle was fierce, however the crew managed to fight off Fin Fin and set off immediately to bring revenge to Captain Tobias for his evil ploy. The group also remembered that the legend states that there any piece of the harpoon that originally speared the beast offers protection against the curse….and Captain Tobias just happened to have a wooden ring.
The group was torn on how to enact their revenge on Captain Tobias. They were currently residing on Mackerel Jack’s Island, which demands no attempts on the Captain’s life. The group settled on a Hail-Mary attempt at fixing Gramzy up with a disguise as well as an aroma cancelling spell and sending her in to seduce the Captain in order to capture him and get his protection ring. Gramzy managed to get a few Squid ink beers into the captain and take him back to enact the plan. The team managed to slip off the ring and place the Captain back on the Blood Dawn just in time to promote him back to Captain, without a wooden ring on his finger…….and Fin Fin took care of the rest.
The Captain Salty Pete has control of the Ships and Dip and wears a wooden ring for the rest of this life.
