Hear Ye One and All! Let it be known that many new High Seas ship's Captains are as yet unfamiliar with ship security. Therefore I took it upon myself, and let me assure you at high risk of severe sea sickness, to investigate and test security upon all floating vessels found throughout the lands... errr... seas. It was noticed that several unsavory fishermen, fish mongers and alchemical type gargoyle characters were loitering around your boats and "casing the joint" so to speak. They have the look of untrustworthy souls. So I double checked all gangplanks and mooring lines to ensure that the ships and boats were found to be secure. When in doubt, I boarded these same ships and boats (mind you, at great personal risk) and secured what goods I could before these cretins absconded with your properties. Further, seeing as how your boats and ships were not secured against stowaways and illegal boarding, I floated these same vessels some ways off shore to minimize the risk of boarding. Also, what cargo could be removed has been safely stored in a chest to prevent pilfering. Many cannons were found to be irresponsibly left fully loaded and primed and were secured for safety, and removed to be repaired at my shop. Oh and sorry, but your fish seemed to have rotted somewhat, being dead and smelly, and was left behind. It is to your benefit and the safety of sailors around Sosaria, that you learn to properly secure your gangplanks, weapons and cargo. Please note, that you may retrieve your cargo and weapons at my house upon proof of ownership.

Thank you.
