Appearing back into existence resting against the lip of a rooftop in the dock quarter of Irolek, Maelkur gave a quick appraisal of the situation before moving in. Apparently the enemy ships were still in process of bombarding the docks and hadn't moved in for the kill just yet though their troops were positioning to do just that. While he had studied in the Tower of Hoeth in life, he had studied many subjects including the powers of magic. It was part of a wizard's life to study and learn about all walks of life and though he had no practical experience with naval war and siege, he had some working knowledge of it thanks to his study. Sheathing his weapons just long enough to catapult himself off the roof to the ground-level, Maelkur hit the dusty street and rolled forward while he re-drew his blades. Standing at the ready but still behind some cover to protect his person in case the ships decided to launch another volley into the city to quell additional resistance.

Move into town, staying out of sight.

Madbeard jumped onto the deck of the ship waving his saber. "Arrr Lads. Give them another volley! Jim come 'ere lad."

Jim bound up next to the dwarf. "Uh but sir, wouldn't that damage our plunder?"

Madbeard roared with laughter taking a huge swig of his beer. "I don't care me boy. I like ta blow things up. Fire the cannons!"

Two small boats left the flagship and began rowing towards the town. As they neared they could be seen swarming with pirates armed to the teeth with guns and blades. The last boat was still having pirates jumping in and setting the oars.

The guards drew their swords and ran towards the docks taking cover behind crates and rubble as gunfire and cannonballs rained over the town. "Draw blades men they are about to land!"

Teheboq's ribs ached as he stared at what remained of the apothecary that had treated him. Of all the places the enemy could have hit, it was the one place that Teheboq cared about at all that had been targeted. Turning his gaze back on the enemy ships Teheboq quickened his pace. They would pay.

Spying Seros, Maelkur narrowed his eyes and focused a bit on reinforcing the glamor about his body. He wasn't quite ready for the Chaos mage or the Tomb King to be aware of his relationship with Quicksilver nor was he ready for it to be common knowledge that he existed. Moving from building to building as rapidly as possible as he could without leaving himself in the open for too long, Maelkur slowly advanced closer to the docks to be ready to engage foes.

Paelic slid behind cover to avoid the hail of bullets and cannon fire. Taking a deep breath he felt a familiar warmth in his hand as magic flowed through his body.

*Cast Sword of Rhun*

Casting Roll
20+10+40-31 < d100
39 < 7

Miscast Chance 20%
80 < d100
80 < 58 No miscast.

As quickly as the magic entered his body it left him. Paelic scowled, he had to concentrate. Messing up another spell here could lead to his death.

*Sorry about the delay fellas*

Randomize Target (*GM Magic) - Seros

Madbeard laughed as the people on the docks fled before his impressive firepower. Everything was exploding to plan. Gazing onto the docks he saw a few defenders taking cover behind crates and the one ship still in port. There seemed to be a few odd defenders that didn't fit the typical city watch. One was an extremely large saurus warrior moving alongside a man clad in heavy chaos armor.

"Aye aim the cannons at the two big uns. I bet they make a great big ole mess. Splatter em onto the dock." Madbeard roared with laughter as the cannon leveled itself at the two defenders.


*Flagship targets Seros*
Hit Roll
BS + d100 - 10 (Teheboq's Large Tagret > AG + 40
35+51-10 > 14 + 40
76 > 54 Success

Wound Roll
S + d100 > T +40
40 + 16 > 17 + 40
56 > 57 Failed to wound.

The cannon roared as it flew straight at Seros. Instinctively he dodged out of the way the cannonball glancing off his dented breastplate. Madbeard frowned. That was disappointing.
"Load all the guns mates! We're givin dem a volley to remember us by!"




The first two rowboats reached the docks. Pirates jumped out of the boat armed with cutlasses and pistols.

*Four Pirates w/Cutlasses and Pistol Enter Docks*




The third boat rowed closer as a man stood up readying his blunderbuss at one of the guards.

*Dingy Attacks Guard with blunderbuss*
Hit
BS +d100 < AG + 40
18 + 99 > 12 + 40
117 > 62 Hit

Wound
S + d100 > T + 40
25 + d100 > 16 + 40
25 + 48 > 56
73 > 56 Wound

Damage
2-10 + S-T/5 - Arm
4 + 1 - 0 = 5 damage.
The bullets caught the guard in the shoulder in a spray of blood. Having no armor to protect him he fell to the ground clutching his wound. Dragging himself back to his knee the guard drew his longsword and readied himself.


The two guards ran up to the pirates as they lept from the rowboats. Swords drawn slashing at their attackers.

City Guard- Attacks Pirate 1
Hit
WS + d100 > WS + 40
12 + 47 > 15 + 40 -> Success

Wound
S + d100 > T + 40
12 + 20 > 14 + 40 -> Failed to Wound

Guard Captain- Attacks Pirate 2
WS + d100 > WS + 40
16 + 17 > 15 +40 -> Failed to Hit

Swords clashed against cutlasses. The guards fought desperately knowing they were outnumbered and out-equipped. The guard captain's strike was quickly parried by the prepared pirates. The other guard's strike was true but only lightly cut the first pirates arm. Laughing the pirates pushed forward to attack.

Teheboq's body instinctively flexed at the loud clang of the cannonball ricocheting off of the chaos mage's armor. To his dismay it appeared that the warrior-wizard had received little more than a dent to his elaborate armor. Why was Teheboq fighting alongside such a creature? Chaos was his true enemy, and this man worshiped one of the foul gods that ruled over it. When he had first met the being something deep inside of him had told him that he had needed the sorcerer, and it's true that he would have been unable to defeat that abomination by himself. Even now he felt that powerful feeling, that for some reason he desperately needed this being alive to complete his mission.

Perhaps he had already been tainted by the island's corruption. Regardless, he had trusted his feelings once before, and he would follow that path again. With a roar Teheboq charged the first of the pirates to land.

Seros gathered his senses after being struck by his second cannonball of the afternoon. This did not bode well for the rest of his day. Looking out the dingy full of men with guns, Seros raised his arms, and tiny red flames began appearing and spreading on the hull of the small boat.

Teheboq charges Pirate 1 -> Enaged Teheboq recovers 1W due to Adrenaline Rush

Hit

20+85 > 54 Wound!

Damage
3-6 + S-T/5 (1) - Armor (0)
3+1-0=4 damage

Roaring Teheboq charged forward as the pirates leapt onto the dock. Swinging his spear in a wide arc towards the first one the pirate parried the clumsy attack easily. He did not count on the weight of the seven foot lizardman still barrelling forwards as he caught Teheboq's bone covered shoulder in the chin. Thrown backwards the pirate landed on the ground spitting bloody teeth onto the ground.




(Seros casts Red Fire on the Dingy ) -

Casting Roll

Damage
4-11 + 82/10 - Arm(0) (*1.5 fire vulnrability)
(11 + 8 - 0) * 1.5 = 28 fire damage.

Dingy 3 destroyed.

Seros raised his arms as the flames spread from his outstretched hands onto the small wooden boat. Screams filled the air as the pirates could not escape the flames. Several dived over the sides the flames clinging and burning their bodies even underwater. The boat slowed to a halt and began to take water and vanish under the surface.



(Paelic once again tries to cast Sword of Rhun)

*Cast Sword of Rhun*

Summons Hand Weapon 3-6 + 5-10 fire damage. Adds an additional 5S for every 30 pts on spellpower check.

3-6 HW + 5-10 Fire + 25S.

Feeling the power of fire flow through the air Paelic latched onto the wind. Grabbing hold he pulled away small threads of its power into his palm as the familiar warmth flowed through his skin. Pulling the ball of flame appearing in his hand slowly like claw he stretched it out into a fine blade of about 4 feet in length. Glancing over the crate that served as his cover Paelic could see the pirates rushing the docks. The defenders were outnumbered but thankfully someone had managed to take out one of the landing boats. It could be worse. Drawing his blade close he crouched as he ran to the next closest piece of cover towards the fighting. He knew he needed to get into melee range but taking a careless cannonball to the chest would prove unwise.

Madbeard laughed as he watched the lads in the small rowboat jump from the flaming ship. Served them right. If was their fault for being so flammable. Leaning over the side of the deck he watched as the rag-tag group of defenders entered hand to hand with his boys. This would prove to be entertaining.
"Fire into the big ole mess of bodies!"

Jim bounded up to Madbeard's side. "But sir, our lads are in there."

"Aye! It'll make a bigger boom that way. Aim for the big pointy lizard thing. He ought ta be big enough for those scruffy seadogs below deck to hit properly."

*Flagship targets Teheboq*
Hit Roll
BS + d100 > AG + 40
35+13> 15 + 40
48 > 55 Failed to hit

Madbeard watched with anticipation as the heavy cannon was aimed and fired. The ball flew short landing ten paces in front of the dock with a terrific explosion of water. Scowling Madbeard spit onto the deck and marched downstairs.

"Oy! Lads. I'ma coming down there and one of you scurvy dogs is walking the plank for that abysmal performance of what you call aiming."

"If you want something to die you gotta shoot it yerself," he mumbled.




On the docks the pirates surged forward.
(Pirate 1 attacks Teheboq )

Hit
15+d100 > 40+30
15+92 > 70

Wound
14+d100 > 40+30
14+46 > 70 Failed to Wound

The pirate slashed quickly at Teheboq with his cutlass. It was clear the pirate had quite a bit of experience with the blade as he caught the saurus on the leg with his second swing. The dull blade did little to pierce the lizardman's thick hide and scales though. The small cut seemed to do little but enrage the beast.



(Pirate 2 attacks Guard)
Hit
15+d100 > 40+12
15+17 > 52 Failed to hit

Another pirate jumped forward swinging his blade wildly but the wounded guard was on the defensive parrying blow after blow with his sword with the strength of desperation.



(Pirate 3 shoots Seros with pistol)
Hit
18+d100 > 40+14
18+61 > 54 Hit

Wound
25+d100 > 40 + 17
25+ 47 > 57 Wound

Damage
4-8 + S-T/5 (1) - Arm (1 - Normally 3 but pistols are Armor Piercing)
5+1-1 = 5 damage

Watching as the flames spread from the armored man's outstretched arms the pirate yelled and drew his pistol firing on Seros. "Die wizard!" The close range shot flew true and caught Seros in the ribs the bullet piercing his armor. "Lads target the mage!"


(Pirate 4 charges Seros)
Hit
15+d100 > 40+26
15+58 > 66 Hit

Wound
25+d100 > 40 + 17
14+ 98 > 57 Wound

Damage
3-6 + S-T/5 (0) - Arm (3)
5+0-3 = 2 damage

Seeing the wizard destroy the landing boat the last pirate surged forward determined to engage the mage at swordplay where he would surely be superior. The pirate ran forward as Seros drew his sword to parry the wild swing. As Seros parried the blow the pirate drew a knife with his offhand plunging it into the gap in his armor created by his allies bullet.






Guards!
City Guard- Attacks Pirate 2
Hit
WS + d100 > WS + 40
12 + 9 > 15 + 40 -> Failed

Guard Captain- Attacks Pirate 2
WS + d100 > WS + 40
16 + 83 > 40+15 -> Hit

Wound
16+d100 > 14+40
16+17 > 54 Failed to wound.

The wounded guard was so focused on defense his attacks were weak and telegraphed. The pirate was able to block them easily. As the pirate saw an opening he lunged for the guards exposed torso as the Guard Captain ran over the deflected the blow saving the other guard. Pressing the attack the guard captain slashed at the attacker grazing his adversary but causing little damage.




All around the defenders more pirates surged onto the docks as citizens and scattered guards grabbed whatever they could find to fend them off. Cannon fire rained overhead. Things were not looking good for Tameria.

Snarling at the pathetic criminals who dared to attack him, Seros parried another blow and took a quick step backwards, raising a shield of flames in the gap between him and his attacker.

As the pirate was distracted with Seros, the devious Maelkur slipped out from behind the cover he'd taken with his wicked dark-elf blades drawn. Taken from the armory of the Balor'ai ships along with a large complement of deadly Druuchi poison, Maelkur was well equipped for this battle. With the illusionary face of the young male contorted into a sinister grin behind the black cowl he wore, the deadly swordsman stepped in behind the distracted man and directed both the long blade he held in his right hand and the shorter one in his left at the exposed flank of the fool who was apparently too distracted by the awful majesty of the Chaos mage.

*Seros casts Orange Fire*

Casting Roll
40+20(SL)+5(HA)+7(W) +10 (1*Previous Cast) - 42 < d100
40 > 36 Failure
Miscast
95< 29 No Miscast

Seros pulled desperately at the winds to shield his body from harm. But it seemed the changer of ways fickle gaze had left him on his own. He could only watch as the protective flames that stood between him and his foes flickered and vanished.



*Teheboq Attacks P1* Enaged a target regain 1W (AR)

Hit
30+d100 > 10(15) + 40

30+13 > 50 Miss! - Poison duration 2 rounds remaining.

Teheboq brought his spear slashing downwards the bone tip smashing through the wooden planks of the dock as the pirate a quick roll to the side. Teheboq readieid his spear for another thrust. The poison coating his weapons seemed to be slowing his opponent down. Another application and the fight would be his.




Maelkur attacks Pirate 4

Hit Rolls
Main Hand -
30 -10 (DW) + d100 > 40 + 15
20+44 > 55 Hit! Overwhelming Assault 1. - Dark Venom 1 applied.

Off Hand -
30 -10 (DW- Offhand/Balanced) +1 (OA) + d100 > 40 + 15
21+62 > 55 Hit! Overwhelming Assault 2. - Black Lotus 1 applied. (-5 WS/S)

Wound Rolls
Main Hand -
20 -10 (DW) + d100 > 40 + 14
10+4 > 54 Failed to Wound

Off Hand-
20 -10 (DW) + d100 > 40 + 14
10+37 > 54 Failed to Wound

Maelkur's blades struck from the shadows but the startled chaos mage looking up gave away his position. The pirate dove backwards parrying the savage blows being quickly put from being on the offense to the defense. The blades lightly grazing the man's skin but leaving sickening black lines of venom in their wake.




*Paelic moves forward w/ Longstride and charges Pirate 3*

Hit
37+d100 > 40+15
37+77 > 55 Hit

Wound
18+25(FSR)+d100 > 40+14
43+27 > 54

Damage
3-6+ 5-10(Fire) + S-T/5 (4) - Arm (0)
6+8+4-0 = 18 damage

Paelic sprang into action as he saw the elf leap from the shadows onto the closest pirate. Grasping the opportunity Paelic sprinted forward full speed through the opening that was created towards the pirate drawing another pistol. Subtlety is seldom effective when wielding a four foot blade of fire and Paelic knew that it was time to be direct and merciless. The pirates eyes widened as he saw the charging bright wizard. He wasn't fast enough pulling the second pistol from his belt. Paelic's blade skewered the man where he stood. With a grunt Paelic ripped the blade free from his foe leaving a charred bloody corpse in his wake.

Madbeard looked onto the battlefield with delight. Things were going splendidly. Sure he had lost a couple of good, no a couple of mediocre men, but he was able to assess the situation and gather valuable intel. The battle might still be won but it would come from artillery not from manpower. His ancestors would be proud although a small part of him wished he were in the fray with a traditional heavy hammer fighting alongside his brothers. Oh well, making things explode was also satisfying. The dock defenders were now a mixture of about two dozen city guards and a band of rag-tag defenders. Although they didn't fight together well, they all with the desperation of cornered animals. He admired that. Madbeard gave them a small nod before firing the cannon. It would hardly matter though. By now the other ships were just getting in position to begin their bombardment of the town.

*Flagship targets Seros - Sorry man luck of the draw. For those who are curious I am rolling a d10 with the 6 defenders in order as 1-6. 7-10 is the town itself. *


Grinning he leveled his cannon as the distracted chaos mage who had burned his dingy. Nobody burns Madbeard's dingy and gets away with it. He was sure there some other people could interpret that but Madbeard didn't care, he had cannons.

Hit Roll
35 - 10 (Tehe's Large Target) + d100 > AG + 40
25+ 1> 54 Failed to hit.

A loud crack was heard as Madbeard's cannon exploded. The large dwarf stood strong as his shipmates were knocked backwards by the explosion and the ship rocked. There was a sickening sound of wood being ripped apart as small chunks of the cannon hole collapsed and fell into the sea. Madbeard stood for several seconds with a blank expression on his face before doubling over with laughter. His face and beard colored black with smoke and soot.

"Ahahaha. Lads now that's what I call an explosion!" His crew members gave hesitant laughs as they circled around him. Madbeard turned around drawing his cutlass with a murderous glint in his eye. "Aye but all fun aside. Who wants to take responsibility for that?" His crew slowly began to back away.





On the docks the pirates surged forward.
(Pirate 1 attacks Teheboq )

Hit
10(15)+d100 > 40+30
10+60 > 70 Miss!

As the pirate rolled out from under Teheboq's attacks he slashed forward with his cutlass at one of the Saurus's openings. The saurus stepped easily back. The pirate was startled that opening should have enough to land a solid blow. It was only then he noticed the black venom dripping from his wound. He could feel his cutlass becoming heavier and his feet slowing down. This was bad.




(Pirate 2 attacks Guard Captain)
Hit
15+d100 > 40+16
15+34 > 56 Failed to hit

The second pirate slashed wildly as both of his attackers. They proved to be quite prepared and assisted one another in blocking the quick but reckless slashes.



(Pirate 4 attacks Maelkur)

Hit
10(15)+d100 > 40+30
10+80 > 70 Hit

Wound
9(14)+d100 > 40 + 12
9+ 86 > 52 Wound

Damage -
3-6 + S-T/5(0) - Arm (2)
6+0-2 = 4 damage.

As the pirate began blocking both of Maelkur's blade the elf didn't see or expect the pirates boot to come flying towards his chest. The pirate kicked the elf straight in the chest sticking him in the stomach with the small blade attached to the end of the shoe. The pirate stumbled back and looked up clutching his face as he felt blood begin to seep from his nose.

"Can you feel it?" Mocked Maelkur, his composure completely unphased by the boot to the chest that he easily recovered from with a stylish flourish of his blades to accompany the graceful recovery. He looked no worse for the wear and still oozed an air of utter confidence. "My venom is in your blood now and you are slowly dying. You can feel it, can't you? The sudden ache will soon become a stabbing pain... your blood still run freely from your eyes... your heart will explode..."

Laughing at his mockery of the pirate's poisoned condition, Maelkur decided the time was right to strike again. Diving to the left and leading with the foot of the same side, the vampire-elf disguised as a human darted in with his blades intending not to skewer the man or rend the flesh from his bones but simply to land more hits with his blades. The poison that coursed through the pirate's veins was harmful but not lethal. Not yet. It would take a bit more introduction of the venom to his body to cause any real damage to his nervous system.

"And I'll be there from beginning to end, little thief, to watch your life flee your eyes. You should not have come here."

Attack!

Seros was becoming somewhat distracted by the number of cannons being aimed at him, and the sound of one of them exploding served only to break his concentration. Cursing as the spell fizzled in his hands, he decided to take another approach. As his opponent stepped forward, sensing weakness, Seros abandoned all pretense of defense and lunged at the pirate, channeling his anger into the blade.

Teheboq cursed his overconfidence, despite the poison Teheboq had introduced to his system the human had nearly managed to strike him. For a moment Teheboq backed off on his attack. Against a lesser opponent the saurus could simply charge into them and his weight would win the fight for him, but this was a skilled fighter. If Teheboq were to charge again it was likely that his enemy would use his own momentum against him. Switching tactics, Teheboq raised his spear high above his head, the poisonous blade pointed straight at the man's heart. If Teheboq could not win the fight with sheer strength, then he would use his endurance and pepper the fighter with swift strikes.

Maelkur stepped left throwing the pirate off as his main blade cut a nasty gash across the pirates side. Stumbling back the pirate looked at his hand now soaked in his own blood. Slowly he fell to one knee as a small trickle of blood began to drip from his eyes. Falling to the ground his eyes widened in horror as he began to grow still.

*2 Damage from Dark Venom - Dead*





Seros walked up to the man his blade streaking with red flames as he thrust it down impaling the dying man. Ripping the blade free he looked out towards his remaining foes.

(*Attack unnecessary - Red Blade not wasted)

Paelic turned his attention quickly to the pirate battling the guards. The guards forced the man back with their attacks distracting him with a wall of steel. Paelic calmly walked up behind the distracted man and unceremoniously ran his blade through the pirate's neck. The head separating easily from his body falling to the ground as the flames sealed the wound stopping the torrent on blood that would have covered the deck. Giving a nod to the wounded guards he pointed towards Teheboq still struggling with another pirate.

Re: City Raid - Madbeard Strikes From the Sea!

Post  FlyingPinkPony on Thu Dec 31, 2009 3:13 pm

Madbeard laughed as he wiped his bloody cutlass on the shirt of one of his dead crewmen. They were all scum. Horrible seadogs who couldn't fire a cannon worth half a damn. He needed his good ole dwarf crewmen but they were still at port, drinking human piss ale and sleeping with their tall lanky elflike women. He never understood the appeal of human women, they seemed too similar to elves. He stepped to one side as the crew rolled up their spare cannon to the newly opened hole in the hull.

"Aye lads, see now we got a better view. Don't mess it up this time or I'll be feeding another one of ye to the sea monsters."

The crew responded with salutes and yells "Aye aye captain!" They leveled the cannon firing towards the clump of defenders on the end of the dock and opened fire.

*Flagship targets Maelkur*
Hit Roll
BS + d100 - 10 (Teheboq's Large Tagret > AG + 40
35+21-10 > 20 + 40
46 > 60 Failed to hit.

The cannon was hardly subtle in its new position and Maelkur's keen eyes spotted it easily as it leveled itself in his direction. As the cannonball flew Maelkur dove to the side narrowly avoiding the ball as it collided with the dock in a shower of wood and splinters crushing the man he had just slain and knocking Seros backwards.

Madbeard shrugged. At least the boys were hitting the dock now. He couldn't really ask for too much more.




(*Armada bombards the town)

Cannonballs streaked through the air as the rest of Madbeards ships reached position and had their cannons prepared. Each of the six ships had a dozen cannons leveled at the defenseless town. With a roar the cannons opened fire. The air was filled with iron death as the metal wrecking balls slammed into the town. Many missed their mark but the damage was done. Buildings crumbled and walls collapsed as people even in the middle of Tameria began to run for cover. The siege had finally begun.

*Apothecary suffers 3 damage*
*Guards Barracks suffers 1 damage*




Pirate 1 attacks Teheboq

Hit
(10)15+d100 > 40+30 -
10+71 > 70

Wound
(9)14+d100 > 40+30
9+91 > 70 Wound

Block -
94 < 46 - Failed to block

Damage
3-6 + S-T/5 (4) - Arm (2)
5 - 4 - 2 = 0 damage.

The pirate fought with the strength of a desperate man. Dodging and parrying Teheboq's blows he saw a wide opening as the saurus raised his spear up high for a downward slash. Plunging the blade into the lizardman's chest there was a resounding snap as he grinned looking up at the stunned saurus the hilt sticking from his stomach. Looking down Teheboq laughed. The pirates excitement turned to horror as he saw the blade of his cutlass lying broken on the ground at his feet. The pirate stepped back holding his handle and the inch of remaining blade. Slowly stepping backwards the pirate turned to try and find support where there was none. Surrounded by defenders the pirate looked up to the sky praying to whatever deity would listen.




City Guard- Attacks Pirate 1
Hit
WS + d100 > WS + 40
12 + 77 > (10)15 + 40 -> Success

Wound
S + d100 > T + 40
12 + 67 > 14 + 40 -> Wound!

Damage
2-5 + S-T/5(0) - Arm (0)
4 + 0 - 0

The wounded guard gave a warcry and he, the captain, Maelkur, and Paelic surged forward as one. The pirate dropped his broken blade and dove off the dock into the water below swimming desperately towards the armada. The bleeding man didn't make it far before he began to scream. Dark shapes could be seen beneath the surface and blood began to fill the water as the pirate was pulled under.




Madbeard frowned as he watched the last of his lads fall to the defenders. Even under a hail of cannonballs and outnumbered they fared quite fell. His frown turned to a smile. Yes he could continue to bombard their pathetic town until they all died or submitted but where was the fun in that. They had earned their victory. The port of Tameria had exceeded his expectations. He grinned. He had finally found a worthy adversary.

"Jim!"

The cabin boy ran up to him. "Yes captain."

"Raise the flag and sound the retreat."

Jim raised an eyebrow. "Sir, are you sure. But we can just bombard them into the ground."

Madbeard punched the boy across the face sending his sprawling onto the deck. "I'm mad lad, not retarded. Sound the damn retreat. These land lubbers earned their salt. Killin them now would just ruin the fun. Haven't had such a good time in ages." He laughed as he turned the wheel turning the ship around. "Jim!"

Jim stood up wiping the blood from his lip. "Yes captain..."

"Fetch us some ale. We all deserve a good drink." He paused tugging on his thick red beard. "In fact push a barrel of our finest ale overboard and let the tide carry it to the defenders. I'm sure those land lubbers could use a stiff mug as well."

Jim gave a small bow. "Yes captain."
