*a conversation between brothers* ========================================================================= Giles Isley: "Tommy, you know we've been told not to go out there until given the okay. Those pirates might still be out there!" Thomas Isley: "I don't give a crap, Gil. How are we supposed to feed our families? They depend on our fishing to survive." Giles: *sighs* "If we go out, we'll have to stay local. We can put out some nets, catch local fish." Thomas: "That's not worth a pearly damn. We need the open sea, Gil!" Giles: "And what happens if we're caught by those soul sucking pirates?!?! Then what will become of our families?" Thomas: *minutes of silence* "We're not like Phil and Esmour, they have other trades to fall back on, Gil. Phil's wife runs the kitchen for the Guild, so he'll be more likely able to pitch in and make decent gold for his time there. And Esmour, well he's a mapmaker by trade... he can sell his sea charts." Giles: "I know, I know." Thomas: "We have no choice, we must fish." Giles: *rubs his face* "Fine but we can't involve Phil and Es. If its true they have other means to make a living, let them stay in the safety of such a living. However, I will not go out to deep sea, Tommy. Not risking it. Staying near Trinsic." Thomas: "Fine. Let me get the boat ready. Is it in the bay still?" Giles: "Yes she waits where she always has. Let me have a quick chat with Ann. She's going to want to know we're heading out." Thomas: "That woman is so demanding! Helena isn't that way." Giles: "Well that's probably why Helena is your third wife, brother." *grins* Thomas: "Oh you think you're so clever." *chuckles* "I'll be out by the boat." ========================================================================== The Isley Brothers are two of four witnesses to the possible sighting of the crew of the USS Odyssey on board a large pirate ship. It is our only lead to the whereabouts of the Lord's crew. Some RBG regiments might be apt to further question the witnesses. They can be found Wednesday, April 23rd, at 8 PM EST around and about the city of Trinsic. Might be worth it to some to have a chat with them.
