    "Ar! Did I ever tell thee about the time I was in the Tokuno Islands and I met a wench who was entranced by a cuddly ferret? Anyway, 'tis a dull story."

    Since the localization for the tillermen has been DOA from before AoS until the last week or so, I wonder just when it was added, and by who?

    I miss Fertbert...

  5. I guess when you sit there long enough even NPC's can get bored... Well, the first time my Tiller man started talking I just about crawled out of my skin, expecting a serpent to jump out and eat half of my boat as one of the new "surprises" (I was fishing for my aquarium, and I'm still suspicious that the nets will pull up more than they offer...). But, no, it was just the dang Tiller man.

    If I let my tillerman drink he starts telling stories and bad pirate jokes now...

    Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the waves, a captain and his crew were in danger of being boarded by a pirate ship. As the crew became frantic, the captain bellowed to his First Mate, "Bring me my red shirt!". The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, which the captain put on and lead the crew to battle the pirate boarding party. Although some casualties occurred among the crew, the pirates were repelled.

    Later that day, the lookout screamed that there were two pirate vessels sending boarding parties. The crew cowered in fear, but the captain calm as ever bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!". The battle was on, and once again the Captain and his crew repelled both boarding parties, although this time more casualties occurred.

    Weary from the battles, the men sat around on deck that night recounting the day's occurrences when an ensign looked to the Captain and asked, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before the battle?". The Captain, giving the ensign a look that only a captain can give, exhorted, "If I am wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show the wound and thus, you men will continue to fight unafraid". The men sat in silence marveling at the courage of such a man.

    As dawn came the next morning, the lookout screamed that there were pirate ships, 10 of them, all with boarding parties on their way. The men became silent and looked to their Captain for his usual command. The Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my brown pants!!
