VAREK/LUMAK: Roll for Day 4’s Activities: 4
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Stumpy stretches out his shoulder joints before leaping out of bed, his previous day’s lashings taking only a small toll on his vitality.
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Rebeus has been up for about an hour, studying his spellbook clandestinely. He now rolls out of bed, grumbling somewhat as if he had just been wakened by the bell.
VAREK/LUMAK: Varek finishes his quiet contemplation in his swaying hammock as he prays to Besmara for her blessings.
VAREK/LUMAK: Lumak swings out of the hammock, landing softly on the wooden deck, quickly checking his belongings before following the pirates to the top deck.
DUNGEON MASTER: When you get on deck for work Plugg growls at the four of you. Two of ya be doing swab work two of ya be doing riggin…you decide then get out of my hair
DUNGEON MASTER: Stumpy and Varek look at each other and decide to do swab duty and are sent to haul rope for the day where you are required to tie and untie knots in the ship’s ropes and moving heavy coils of rope from one part of the ship to another, requiring a DC 10 Profession (sailor) or Strength check. You will need to also make a DC 10 Constitution check to avoid being fatigued at the end of the shift.

DUNGEON MASTER: Stumpy and Varek, realise they are working with Tilly Brackett and Ratline” Rattsberger while on swab duty.
DUNGEON MASTER: Tilly is a female human who you have noticed as tough joker who likes her rum, but seems reliable. Ratline is a male who is a rat-faced halfling with long arms and three missing fingers.
DUNGEON MASTER: both of them seem to be indifferent to both of you, they have not been invovled in any of the scrapes you have had in the last few days yet neither has gone out of their way to help you.
STUMPY/RUBEUS: While in the midst of rubbing some seawater onto the deck, Stumpy “accidently” splashes Ratline across the face.
“Yar!” growls stumpy, “ya have the look of a parched sea dog!”
DUNGEON MASTER: Are you making fun of my face you bastard. You stay on that side of the deck and I’ll stay on this side! Else there will be trouble.
STUMPY/RUBEUS: “Avast! I’ll swab whichever side o this miserable ship I happen to fancy,” growls Stumpy.
VAREK/LUMAK: Varek strikes up a conversation with both Tilly, “Me name’s Varek, good to meet another friendly face aboard this ship. Should be sleeping off a hell of a hangover back at port however I found myself aboard this here fine ship much to me surprise.”
Diplomacy check: 1d20+2 = 19
DUNGEON MASTER: Yea, I know who you are, Rosie has told me about ya, you have been pretty nice to her, I appreciate that. My name is Tilly. Same sort of thing happened to me. Don’t really remember where and when, I was a little under the weather for a few days so it could have been any time during that bender’ Tilly says laughing.
DUNGEON MASTER: Tilly’s Attitude has changed to Friendly
DUNGEON MASTER: Ratline is now unfriendly to you
VAREK/LUMAK: “If you have any problems let me know. I’m sure if we keep an eye out for each other we can do just fine given the circumstances. If you are a friend of Rosie I know you are a good sort to trust,” replies Varek with a slight grin.
DUNGEON MASTER: Tilly responds, Now worries mate! then moves away as she notices Scrourge coming in your general direction scowling at you. However when she moves away Scourge has nothing to comment on so grunts and moves away
VAREK/LUMAK: Varek wipes the sweat from his forehead, muttering under his breath, “Damn this sun if making me sweat like a pig in a sweatbox!”
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Stumpy tries his luck with Tilly, making small talk about his favorite rum houses back in port.
DUNGEON MASTER: Tilly looks at stumpy through squinting eyes and says "are you accusing me of being an alcoholic or are you trying to chat me up? Which I might add is unwelcome.
VAREK/LUMAK: Varek swabs the deck closer to Ratline, “How are ye going? My head hasn’t stopping spinning, I think I might have had a drop too much last night. At least I haven’t feed the fish yet if ye know what I mean. Haha.” Varek motions to Ratline’s missing fingers, “What happened with ye fingers? Did ye loost em to the sharks that seem to always be waiting in the waters for an easy meal?” Varek shivers slightly at the thought of sharks and the icy waters they sailed in.
Diplomacy check: 1d20+2 = 14
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Stumpy grins at Tilly’s sudden change of behavior and continues to talk about his fondest memories of swilling and wenching.
DUNGEON MASTER: Ratline says, nothing much… happened when I was new to being on a ship… got a rope caught around my hand when I shouldn’t have and a sail went down and my figers went up with the rope it was attached to.
DUNGEON MASTER: nothing really all that exciting.
VAREK/LUMAK: “I’ve seen that happen before, if I was there I would have patched ye up like new. I tell you what scars and missing fingers are just like tattoo only with better stories. I bet ye could do well impressing one of the woman on board if we told em ye fought off a hungry reef shark or something. Add a bit of spice to liven things up if ye know what I mean. Besmara’s blessing to both of us to stay on this wooden deck.” Varek glances over the railings of the ship into the dark icy depths of the ocean with a shiver running down his spine.
DUNGEON MASTER: Eh…women are interested or their not. stories won’t help em. anyway I gotta swing over to that line over there to check the knots see ya later
DUNGEON MASTER: Rebeus and Lumak are in the rigging with “Badger” Medlar a female half-elf who is an older woman who shaves her gray hair into stripes and Shivikah a female human who is a very tall Mwangi exslaver. Both women are not that interested in talking to either of you, if you want to make friends with them you know you are going to have to work hard
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Rubeus works the rigging, moving deliberately so as to not fall.
VAREK/LUMAK: Lumak works around the rigging, repairing damaged rope and checking the knots to ensure they are secure. He will attempt to influence while working the rigging.
Profession (sailor) check: 1d20+5 = 13
STUMPY/RUBEUS: During the course of his day’s work, Rubeus attempts to strike up a conversation with Badger. “There be something about the sea,” he muses. “I be young now, but I could get old out here and not be regrettin’ how I spent my life..”
DUNGEON MASTER: I Understand what you are saying young one and I have indeed done just what you say and it still holds sway over me.
DUNGEON MASTER: Badgers Attitude has changed to Indifferent
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Later, Rubeus finds himself musing in front of Shivikah.
DUNGEON MASTER: Shivikah turns to Rubeus and says. Look Plugg and Scourge have it in for you.. I don’t care for you so tht makes you a no go zone for me. you stay away from me. I’ll stay on this line you stay on that line and that way I won’t be tempted to slip a dagger in your shoulder blades kapish!
STUMPY/RUBEUS: Rubeus gives Shikikah an even look before returning to his tasks.
VAREK/LUMAK: Lumak climbs over he rigging to speak with Badger, “I haven’t yet had the chance to meet you, my name’s Lumak, a sneaky scoundrel of a halfling if I don’t say so meself. Ye look like you can handle yourself quite well, how long have ye been on board this ship? Me? I’m trying to learn the ropes and find me footing.”
Diplomacy check: 1d20+6 = 26
DUNGEON MASTER: I haven’t been on this ship long, but I have been on ships all my life. You are doing quite well with the ropes if this is your first time. I wolud be happy to take you through the basics to make sure you do everything correct. The rest I suspect you will pick up quickly mr Sneaky scoundrel halfling. You remind me of me when I was your age!

VAREK/LUMAK: Lumak offers a wide grin, “That is most kind of ye, if ye are ever need a return of the favour ye only need to ask.”

STUMPY/RUBEUS: Stumpy grins and marches down the steps, greatsword at ready. Rubeus follows behind, sans the smile and with his crossbow drawn and loaded.
VAREK/LUMAK: Lumak grins at the mention of danger, sliding down the rope as quickly as possible without risk of falling. He scampers off with dagger in hand.

He just gave Rosie her fiddle back which was confiscated so she can entertain us lot plus he dealt with four dire rats single handed in the bilge today.
