Dawn OOC Posted March 16, 2015 Share Posted March 16, 2015 The wind snapped the sails sharply, drawing Captain Akoiâ€™s attention upward. The Ultgar mariner scowled and shook his head. The sailors muttered and tossed shells into the waves when the officers werenâ€™t looking. The offerings to the elven sea god would have been punished if caught, but the sailors always honored the human and elven gods whose waters they crossed. This was Princess Elenaâ€™s ship, The Queen Ascendant, and she was easily the second largest ship in the Imperial Fleet. The massive ship allowed the princess to bring herself and select guests, mostly other nobles, onboard. The nobles all had their retainers, of course, so there was barely room for the adventurers that Elena had insisted venture with her. The nobles had berths in the upper decks, and the adventures in the middle, while the sailors and menial laborers slept in the hold. This ship didnâ€™t have the horses, but that was only so there was room for the lowest social strata to sleep. The nobles had assumed this was a great excuse to party, and Elena had joined in, spending the nights in celebration and the days sleeping. Her four advisors had worked diligently to prepare for landing. The adventurers had little to do, other than talk to one another and wait for landfall.
