    Yahaxithonix: surrounded him and makeshifted a poor rope.
    Yahaxithonix: Upon a beam at the blacksmithys
    Yahaxithonix: The local priest arrived to give his blessing.
    Yahaxithonix: to the procedure... and ask him..
    Yahaxithonix: anything to say?
    Yahaxithonix: This the man said.
    Yahaxithonix: In youthful blooming years was I,
    Yahaxithonix: when I that practice took;
    Yahaxithonix: Of perpetrating piracy,
    Yahaxithonix: for filthy gain did look.
    Yahaxithonix: To wickedness we all were bent,
    Yahaxithonix: out lusts for to fulfil,
    Yahaxithonix: To rob at sea was our intent,
    Yahaxithonix: and perpetrate all ill.
    Yahaxithonix: I pray the Lord preserve you all,
    Yahaxithonix: and keep you from this end,
    Yahaxithonix: O let Fitz=Gerald's great down fall
    Yahaxithonix: unto your welfare tend.
    Yahaxithonix: I to the Lord my soul bequeath,
    Yahaxithonix: accept thereof I pray,
    Yahaxithonix: My body to the Earth beneath,
    Yahaxithonix: dead friend, a dieu for aye.
    Yahaxithonix: With that...
    Yahaxithonix: the ten pubs... pull upon the rope...and the beam broke.
    Yahaxithonix: and slid out of there grasps...
    Yahaxithonix: to sail upon the seas...my friends.

    Bruin: the seas be similar to dese, but not exactly the same
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: I got my first taste of yon ocean by fishin;

    Bruin: I was but a simple lass back then
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: Enjoyin' da forest and nature
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: So I sees a fishin' pole one day and I figures, why not?
    Bruin: So needless to say, I fished
    Bruin: And I fished
    Bruin: I could open up a cobbler shop with all ye boots I fished up!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And eventually, I got too good for fishin' along the shore
    Bruin: So I was told, head out to see! The fish be bigger out there!
    Bruin: So I saved up me gold coin
    Bruin: Handed it over to a shipwright
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And acquired my first, an' only legally owned boat!
    Bruin: So I tooks her out to sea
    Bruin: And I fished
    Bruin: and I fished
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: Da next day
    Bruin: one of me mateys tells me about dese nasty sea serpents
    Bruin: and how dey sometimes be carryin' dese maps fer treasure!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: So I takes my fishin' pole
    Bruin: Head to port, and sail on out!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: I sail and I cast my fishin' pole
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And I sail
    Bruin: a few fish here and dere
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And I believe I was somewhere between da isle of Moonglow and Nujelm
    Bruin: When I felt a strong
    Bruin: Very strong bit
    Bruin: dis be no fish I knew!
    Bruin: I pulled

    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: LArge and towering
    Bruin: Almost as tall as the mast he be!
    Bruin: A big roar he let out

    Bruin: He casted magic on me!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: poisoning and fireballing me I believe it was
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: A sea monster with magical capabilities!
    Bruin: So I nust defeat this thing....
    Bruin: I knew I had the skill to lay this beast back to the ocean
    Bruin: So I lead the beast closer to the deck
    Bruin: I slowly draw me kryss.....
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And just as the beast nears the side of the boat
    Bruin: I STRIKE!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: But ohh noes, I can nay reach the beast
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: For my arms are too short, and my kryss be too short!
    Bruin: I kept swingin and swingin'
    Bruin: But I be swingin' at da air! hittin nothing!
    Bruin: Twas then I realized, this nay be a job for a fencer!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: So I hurried the sails to make a quick escape
    Bruin: But the winds blew me into the sea serpent as it blocked my way!
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: I tried to adjust the sails and da rudder
    Bruin: But the sea serpents magic just kept comin' at me
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And soon I was finally struck down by da beasts magic....
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: *shakes head*
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: Aye....
    Bruin: If'n da sea was kind to her
    Bruin: She may still be sailing today
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: I have made many other journeys to search out me poor ship
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: But alas, I have turned up nothing
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: Perhaps she be still sailing.....or perhaps she be at the bottom in davey jones locker
    Bruin: But she was a good ship
    Bruin: *hic*
    Bruin: And let this be a lesson to ya's!
    Bruin: *hic*
