Ahoy, jolly tars!
Slip the anchor and set sail with none other than William Azure and Rubidenus Fuchia on board the Huntress in tales of high adventure on the open ocean....
Cut. Cut. Cut. Look we're working with a skeleton crew here and this has to happen just right. Budgets tight and we need to get this all in one shot so look alive.
Scene IV...opens with the sound of roaring surf and the creak of a ship's rigging. The Secondhand Lions have captured Lion's Port and turned it into a pirate haven. The governor has retreated inland and the cane field slaves have burned a lot of the farms and settlement. The island is a cacophony of crazed drunken depredation. Seeking to make a mad dash into fame the pirate brethren have crewed two ships and make plans to set sail into the shipping roads outside of Lion's Port. On the eve of the voyage more than half of the crew were no-shows (snowy weather kept them at home) and had to be trundled into the hold of the Gimlet. The Huntress, was re-crewed by Captain William and Lt. Rubidenus. The two adventuring ships set sail into the great wide open only to find a full scale naval war going on.
The French and British fleets beat at each other. The winds of war would declare this day for the French. The British forced the capitulation of two French SOL, but failed to secure either and fell prey to losing one ship, the Queen to the French.

The fall of the Queen to captured and struck French ships.
Tune in next time when we here Dwalin the Dwarf say.
