As Dipsy and I chatted about the days' spoils, laughing at a mark for his foolish Georgio ways, K'lypso announced she had met with a pirate at the west bank in Britain. He attacked her on sight as she arrived by way of magic. True to tradition, we sped to Britain to lend aid, always spoiling for a fight. We arrived with K'lypso leading the pirate through the streets, shouting oaths at him, taunting him. We neared the inn near the magic shop, to find more pirates there, the fools set about attacking my large red friend Pain, the Gypsy War lizard. They were unable to harm we Roma, but they were able to harm the Dragon. He was unable to injure or target them. Unstable drunks? Misbegotten Pixel Marauders? or some new threat on the horizon?
