Scum of the sea

First sitting

Omar and Abraham had found a port city (fort clostin)since there departure from there home village(venwer). Omar was sick of being a tailor apprentice under his adopted father. Abraham choose to come along worried for Omars well being. The two spent only a few days in town before meeting Dem. He was a local poor fishermen and shipwright. Omar happened to have some coin and spotted Dem selling his morning catch to a fish vendor on the docks. With a growl from his stomach he decided to try an haggle the fisherman for a deal on breakfast, and maybe a few extra coins to be maid. Dem was ready to cut a deal and noticed he was dealing with a thief since Omar approached Dem had been waiting for an opportunity like this. Dem sold the best of his catch to the eager. Before the transaction was complete Dem asked the elf of a special job, a item he had wanted for some time. A spyglass none to be owned be the man who lived in the house right in front of the vary fish vender they stood at. The overconfident elf accepted gladly, at that moment Abraham came into view walking towards the two. The dwarf engaged Dem in conversation instantly. As he did Omar slipped from sight of all. Dem and Abraham hadn’t even noticed until the engagement got stale Dem then offered to have a drink at the tavern five strides away known as (jims chum). Before the began to walk Abraham noticed Omar flat on his back getting screamed at by a villager. A few dozen lockpick attempts gone wrong might have been noticed. As the man opened his door he pushed the thief off the stoop and onto his back. The owner of the house became furious and started demanding answers Abraham ran to Omars aid saying it was a simple miss-understanding of address the man excepted that and slammed the door shut. Dem and Abraham then went to the tavern looking forward to drink. Omar stayed out that night scouting as the dwarf and gnome shared drink and tales. The spyglass was all the elf currently cared about. As night fell deeper and the patrols loser the elf found his opining in a window sliding through silently and concealed Within the shadows. He thought he was silent… The man in the home who was heavily asleep awolk fast to the sound of footsteps in his home he ran to the open window protruding his head past the opining to look for a intruder. As the man ran to the window Omer jumped into the shadows of the mans livingroom at the vary last moment. The man ran out of his front door searching around the house. Omar saw the spyglass mounted infront of him above the fire place. The elf took it and left unnoticed. As he came to the fish vendors stand he noticed it was well after midnight and had made no planes with his companion or employer and had simply done the job. As he thought of that luck would have it Abraham was leaving the bar and spotted Omar. Abraham approached the elf and assured him he knew where Dem lived and would complete the deal tomorrow. Omar nodded and walked to the inn with tired eyes. Looking at the spyglass before tucking it back away noticed a large folded pice of paper rapped around the middle section it was the deed to a ship in port! The two rested and awolk looking for Dem. They found not but ten feet from the dock fishing and arguing with a wench. The women kept saying she loved him as we approached. she asked who we where. Abraham responded saying he was Dems inter racial love child. The wench excepted that and inbraced him in a hug not thinking twice. As that was happening Omar was giving the gnome the spy glass and explaining how there was a deed attached as well. Abraham came into the conversation after he had sent the wench off. We decided to go to the ship and scout out the situation. It was a small sail boat well stocked and to are amazement there was no Crue on bord not a soul. Dem got his belongings and Omar riled up three lesser thieves to join him. They set out as fast as they could and amazingly brought no attention to themselves. Pulling away from the dock they noticed a man thrashing in the water screaming for help. Abraham tossed him a rope, just as a shark fin surfaced for the man Dems wench had come running twords the dock calling out to him. She then triped and fell into the harbor. For whatever reason the shark stopped going for the drowning man to brutally devour the wench. It was a clean steal… No one noticed us leave,we were not followed it was amazing. Are crew handled the ship with no problems. But we where unsure on what to do next. A planer ship sailed twords us with shots of terror claiming a blue dragon to be not far behind them. We passed them and continued our path not seeing any dragons. Abraham decided we should get his cousin from a not to far continent. A sandy desert like place, it didn’t seem worth it but Abraham told us of his cousin and his great skill in engineering. We decided it to be worth the trip with nothing else at hand and no clear path. As land came into sight so did a small transporting ship. Dem wanted to start his piracy and wat better way then the weak. We pulled the ship close to the other Dem offering trade claiming to need rations for starving men in exchange for gun powder. Both ships flue friendly city flags so the caption thought the best of his current situation. Dem and Omar walked over the plank to the ship that was about to be sacked. The caption explained to Dem some of his men had scurvy and needed fruit for the clarics could only cure the sickness but not help the ammunity to it. As he asked Omar slipped into the shadows unnoticed and Abraham started over the blank. As he reached the victims boat Omar backstabed and killed the first mate. Dem then rushed the caption making quick work of him and headed twords the stern of the ship. The ranger maning the ship let fly his arrow into the shoulder of Abraham. Dem then attacked the ranger giving him no chance to release another arrow. Omar then rushed to Abrahams side slicing into the oncoming crew man trying to attack the wounded dwarf. The deck was clear and noone emerged from below. Abraham quaffed a healing potion and we continued below deck. As we went down the stairs we entered a room of three doors. We herd alittle snoring. As Omar pressed hi ear to the door to try an hear anything he was poked by a nail in the door it just so happend to have to be the same outcome on the door across… Dem opened the door to his right and staring back at him was a gnome atop a chest. Paralyzed with fear he died quick as Dem rushed him. Abraham entered the door straight across from the stairs to come face to face with a most odd half-Orc magic user. This creature had no control of his magical prowess but let fly a magic missile into the dwarfs chest. Abraham screamed out to the half-Orc, I know of you confusion. The Orc then sank to the ground crying and Abraham went over to comfort him. As Dem looked around the gore of wat was once a gnome he noticed Omar holding he’s ears outside of the door. But also saw the chest the gnome was sitting on. Then he felt an abrupt coldness and herd a almost familiar shreek. The door shut looking him in the room. A blue green mist rose from the corner of the room. It was a specter,Dems dead wench. It let out a noneunderstandable mix of word that all sounded like complaining. The gnome was so scared he shoulder rammed the door going into the next room. Two sleeping crewman awoke quickly. The assassin leaping twords Dem was cut down in mid sprint. The illusionist tried to cast a spell. Dem cut him in half with his hand syth, and sent the other flying as if it were a boomerang killing the last foe in the other room then flying tword Omar. Who dodge the flying missile by the hair in his bleeding ears. Dem the entered the room which Omar stood in. The Spector still followed everyone could see and hear it. As they approached the dwarf for an answer to get rid of the ghostly thing they stood in awe, as a dwarf comferted a half-Orc who was sobbing on the ground. There was also a tiny rain cloud over the half-Orc as he cried. We decided to bring the Orc along only Abraham wanted that we thought of it as a bad idea. We then looted the ship. It carried cooking spices but under the spice we found two (PP) worth of drugs and in the chest gems of different sorts and a pair of bone dice Abraham took. A group decision was mad to leave the unharmed ship in sea an leave no ties to us and this crime. The dessert town of the engineer cousin is now in sight and we are ready to set off into this small dessert port town
