"I agree." Bongo says. "We've given him money, and that's enough."
The Harbor Master sizes them all up, and whatever his faults, he can
clearly see a tired but battle-ready group. "I'll take it out of the
moorage." he spits. "You'd be well advised to make yourselves scarce
from my harbor as fast as you can. Next time we meet, I'll have my
pound of flesh." With that he stomps off.
Phaeton looks to the others, "I think we best take his advice. We don't
want trouble." With that he heads off the ship and down to the dock
"Whaddya say we all find a place to hole up for a few hours." Bongo
says. "I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm exhausted."
Bongo looks to Lady Frost. "You feeling alright, Frost?" he asks.
Even as the company disembarks, some shouts can be heard. In the
glimmer of dawn can be seen a flying creature in the far distance.
Those with advanced optics can make out some skeletal beast with a
black-robed figure atop it. It circles high above, but is soon gone,
heading inland as fast as the wind.
A young boy seems to materialize out of nowhere and comes running up.
"Welcome, good sirs and ladies." he says, sweeping off a dirty red hat
and bowing. "Ye look to be newcomers. Perhaps ye be looking for a wee
bit of breakfast, or perhaps something else. Name's Edig, and for a few
credits, I'll take you where you want to go! Fair deal?"
