3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
A few days after the great white shark incident, Able Seaman Kinstal Minare is on deck and ends up working alone with Skald. He and the bosun are winding up rope below the mainsail, so it seems like an opportune time to ask the prickly half-elf a few questions.

3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
While standing near Skald, Kinstal grabs a rope and starts mumbling, loud enough to be heard by Skald.
"No way one of our ropes just frayed ad broke.  Skald is way too thorough for that."

Looking up to be sure he was heard he says to Skald,

"Hey Skald, I've been thinking about this and something doesn't seem right.  I saw you checking the ropes, they were in excellent condition.  And that rope was not frayed at all. Do you think someone has it in for the Cap'in?"

Kinstal keeps working while talking hoping to get the half-elf to ease up a little.

Kinstal Minare:

Skald is wearing his wide brimmed straw hat that comes down low over his eyes, so Kinstal can't be sure that the bosun has heard him, but the warrior does notice the hat tilt to one side after the comment is made.

Kinstal Minare:
"Hey Skald, I've been thinking about this and something doesn't seem right.  I saw you checking the ropes, they were in excellent condition.  And that rope was not frayed at all. Do you think someone has it in for the Cap'in?"


Skald grunts, and then looks up. Despite the brim of the hat keeping the sun off his face, the man is squinting in the noon sun and his face looks sweaty and clammy.

"All I know is that I checked all the ropes the day before we left port... they were fine. I checked that rope before I strung it up between the two ships... it was fine. I know someone cut it. The question is... do you know who that was Kinstal?"

The bosun continues to work as he talks, laying coil after coil of rope onto the deck. He moves with remarkable speed and dexterity.

Re: 3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
Kinstal wracks his brain trying to remember who may have been on the deck after the rope was strung between the ships.
"I don't remember who was up on deck that could have done this.  You sounded like you knew who it was, if you know we must tell the captain and confront them."

Re: 3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
Skald pauses in his work, looking up and staring directly at Kinstal with squinting eyes.

"Damn it man. You know who was the only one up on deck at the time... It was you! I don't known why you've got it in for the skipper, but he think he is a good man and he passes us on time at least. Maybe it was just a prank gone wrong, I don't know, but leave him alone!"

Skald snorts, yawns deeply, and then goes back to coiling the rope.

Re: 3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
After the commotion below decks, Kinstal finds Skald again.
"Look Skald I'm not sure what ya meant but I had nothing to do with the Captain's rope being cut."  Moving closer to Skald, kinstal gets a concerned look, "Are getting any sleep Skald, you look exhausted."

"What? Err...yeah, ugh. I haven't been sleeping right. I keep having this crazy dream and then when I wake up it's like I didn't get any rest at all. Ugh... I don't know. I must be going crazy."

Kinstal looks at Skald, a look of concern creeping onto his face,
"What kind of strange dream Skald? Have you mentioned this to anyone else?"

"What? Ugh, just some sort of stupid nightmare where we all get killed. Bah! We're sailing through the Sea of Dread, probably just nerves."

"Are you crazy?! No I haven't told anyone else. The first mate already wants my guts for garters, I don't want her to be on my case even more..."

Re: 3.1 - SWW - Kinstal Questions Skald
"You're right, I'm sure it's nothing at all.  I should probably go see if anyone has figured out what happened with the father."

Kinstal turns to leave, then says over his shoulder, "You don't think these dreams have anything to do with what happened to Father Feres do you?"

Skald sighs. "Anyway, that is how the dream goes Kinstal. The same way night after night. It seems that we triumph, well, the few that survive do. But with all the sailors on BOTH ships dead, how would the voyage continue?"

"Bah! Listen to me! I sound like an old woman. Ignore me, I'm sure it is nothing."
