    ARE YOU CALLIN ME A LANDLUBBER! I think you needs have a conversation with my pointy friend. If your bilge-bucket of a ship so much as scrapes a single barnacle from mine I'll send you off to apprentice with the boatman in the nether regions of the Dungeon Doom. Where do ya think all those restless souls come from!

    Grace heads down the dirt path to the Pirate's Plunder. Sure, SeaDog was her faithful first mate but she would need some able hands if she really wanted a chance at that prize money. Most of the lugs that frequented Buc's Den weren't worthy of polishing her boots, but she was hoping that an old friend would be there this evening.

    [​IMG]

    A veteran of many battles, Lady Sterling sat at a table with her friend Nissa. Across from them sat Jarvis. Grace knew Jarvis... not an honest bone in his body he was the biggest cheat in all of Buc's Den! Grace watched as a quick flick of his wrist brought a Queen of Hearts onto the table. His worthless card fluttered to the floor un-noticed.

    Well, not completely... Nissa's quick elven eyes spotted the movement and she cried out: "Jarvis, you are a cheater!" Jarvis made a quick reach for the dagger in his boot but Grace was too fast for him.

    [​IMG]

    Nobody in the tavern moved, they all knew of Grace's quick and lethal temper. Sterling looked up with a grin as wide as an Ettin's Head, "Grace! You old Sea Witch! Where have you been!" Nissa stared on with wide eyes as the female pirate kicked the chair back and took a seat at the table.

    [​IMG]

    Grace returned Sterling's smile... "Girls, I have a sweet deal for ya. There's this race... big prize money and nothin but trash-talkin landlubbers with leaky tubs signed on."

    "So, you're finally gonna make me part of your crew?" Sterling grumbles.

    "Well lass, only if yer done messin with those smelly trogs in the Painted Caves. I figgered you and Lurg would have exchanged nuptials by now you've danced with him so many times!" Grace slaps the table and lets out a laugh that echoes through the tavern. Sterling joins her as Nissa looks on with a smile, her elven eyes twinkling.

    "Come girls, take a look at my new boat. Just outta drydock. I wont tell ya how many dang Titan's and Cyclops I had to kill to get the gold for her... but she's sweet!"

    [​IMG]

    Nissa and Sterling rush to the dock and gaze at the Dragon Ship.

    "I've never seen anything so beautiful!" Exclaims Nissa

    Sterling eye's the tillerman. His ample muscles ripple under his swarthy skin. She strokes her chin and sighs... maybe it's time for her to give Lurg a break and get a little fresh air. The tillerman returns her stare with a wide grin.

    The excitement of the moment overwhelm's the ladies and they dance about the dock shouting Woot! Woot!

    Grace notices a wet pair of boots lying on the dock... she kicks them back into the sea.

    [​IMG]

    Then she heads to the Pirate's Plunder and enjoys a Guiness. Ahhhh.....

    EWW. You can keep that sticky warm stuff for yourself. And that's coming from an Irishman!

    *reaches into the fridge for a chilled Bass Ale*

    ... anyone seen my other boot?
