A night in the city
Waydin Thrust with his dagger but the captain easily sidestepped the attack. However it gave Milos an opening, leading with his own small blade and catching the captain in his free arm. His cutlass downward swing on the captain's head was blocked by the bastard sword.

Clashes of steel and yells could be heard behind them as The caravel's crew and ship Renthor's men were fighting and dying.

A night in the city
 Waydin heard the sounds of battle begin to engulf the ship. If he could hold on for just a while longer, he might live to see the dawn. This enemy Captain avoided the Magelings thrust of steel, like an adult might deflect a child. That fact angered the would be Mage, as Waydin attempted to recall the lessons of the Brotherhood's Arms Master,He feinted a slash but quicly changed he angle of the blade and thrust towards the enemy Captain.

Waydin attacked again with his dagger but missed the captain. Milos led with his own dagger and then his slashing cutlass but the captain side stepped and deflected as before - this mariner was no stranger to battle it seemed.

 The opponent was skilled,perhaps even more skilled the Milos. All Waydin had to do was hold on until the Luskin forces prevailed...he hoped.

 The Mageling attempted to wait until Milos attacked the Captain, then the would be mage would make his own stab, in the hopes Milos had the others attention.

07:52, Today: Waydin Boshar rolled 1 using 1d4.  Dagger damage.
07:38, Today: Waydin Boshar rolled 20 using 1d20.  Attack roll.

Waydin Held off form attacking. Milos stabbed forward with his dagger and scored a hit on the captain's shoulder following quickly with a overhead slash of his cutlass which managed to slip past the captain's parrying bastard sword and cut an opening in his side.

Wadin came forward with his dagger and stabbed cleanly into the captain's side, sinking his dagger up to the hilt before pulling out again. The captain stepped back and collapsed in a heap, dropping his weapon.

"You two hold!" came a command from behind him and both and mageling turned to see that Ship Renthor was triumphant in taking the ship, the caravel's men either dead or had surrendered. Three men came to them weapons draws uncertain of Milos and Waydin's alleigances.

"Stand easy lads", milos said sheathing his blades. "Im Milos Ravenwood of Ship Suljack and this Waydin Boshar of the Arcane Brotherhood. We snuck aboard to stop these dogs from leaving the city - glad you could join us."

  Waydin could not believe the fight was actually over.He had actually participated in physical conflict,and lived to tell the tale. His emotions where a conflict of relief and exaltation. But before he could speak to Milos,his fellow victor, they where challenged by others.

 Waydin, the one that was usually unassuming, turned to regard the Luskin sailors. A sudden sense of strong annoyance came over him, when he was confronted,and then ordered by Luskin sailors. The Mageling, found himself speaking like one of those over him, in the Towers. " It is as he claims. Why do you think they could not steer correctly? And the main sail did not burst into flame on a whim of the Gods. Stand down, Or  do you threaten one of the Brotherhood, Men of Luskin?" Waydin crossed his arms,and regarded them with a cold expression.

The three men regarded Waydin with a man who was not to be trifled with. They sheathed their weapons and nodded and left them both.

As they walked away, Milos regarded Waydin with a raised eyebrow.

"Well, I see the Arcane Brotherhood taught you how to talk to subordinates."

Milos looked over and saw a man who wore a surcoat and tricrown hat coming forward with another man.

"Im Captain Rhos of the Blackhammer - I understand it is you two I have to thank from keeping this ship from escaping the bay?"

  Waydin watched the three sailors retire,and he let out a breath of relief. To Milos, he replied. " It has been a long day, Milos. I am in no mood to be trifled with. Here comes someone in authority. " Said when he spotted the Captain approaching.

 Waydin girded his mental lions, for this next conversation. This was a Captain of his own ship, one used to being obeyed. Waydin would have to tread lightly with this one,but he would not be intimidated. " Well met, Captain Rhos. I congratulate you and your crew, for the rapid response made to the alarm bells, and your battle prowess. I shall be sure to include this in my report to the Masters of the Brotherhood." Waydin was doing his best to imitate someone with authority.

 He was about to say somethig else, but then indicated his companion."This is Milos,a good man to have at your side. He actions where as critical as my own, in slowing this ship down, so your good Blackhammer could close and overwhelm it.... By the way, Since the two of us assisted in the capture of this vessel, we claim our fair share of the prize money." Waydin said with a most serious expression.

Captain Rhos heard Waydin's words & then regarded Milos at the mageling's mention of him.

"A man of Ship Suljack...Interesting you were capable of such an act", the captain Rhos said.

"No more surprising that Ship Renthor's men knew how to get their ship's out to us", Milos said with sarcasm.

The captain let out a small laugh. "I see you have no apprehension in voicing your opinion - do not let your bravery cross foolishness, however."

Captain Rhos turned to Waydin. "Once we have secured this vessel, i will transport you back to the city and send runners to the Hosttower of your actions - as well as to Ship Suljack."

The captain walked away and Milos turned to Waydin. "As you can see, there is no love lost between Ship Suljack and Ship Renthor."

 Waydin would wait until the Captain concerned himself with other matters, then whisper to Milos. " Where would the Captain's quarters be located, on a ship such as this? We can explore that area,before these beggars loot it."

"Come - i think i have an idea", Milos said leading the way.

Going below deck, Milos took a couple of turns and found the quarters of the late captain. It was big as expected of a captain's cabin - bed, closet, table and desk and a large footlocker at the foot of the bed were the furnishings within.

 When they arrived at the Captain's cabin, Waydin put on a pair of gloves in the hopes they might offer a modicum of protection against any nasty surprises that might lay within."You take the foot locker, I will get the desk. Take only small items of worth,and leave something behind. Or those above will know someone was here before them. Make haste." With those words spoken, the Mageling attempted to search the desk for anything of interest.

Waydin searched the desk and found a leather bound chapbook and some nautical maps. Milos found a small hand chest 1'x 1'x 2' that was locked in the foot locker and a tied leather scroll case.

As Waydin found the nautical maps and chapbook, he noticed something odd about the bottom of the last drawer.

Putting his hand within and pushing the bottom, he heard a click and a panel popped upward revealing a hidden compartment.

Within is a coffer made of metal and a visible lock on its top.

 When the coffer was revealed in the hidden compartment, Waydin reached in with his dagger blade, and tapped the coffer and the area around it, just to make sure there was no nasty surprises, aka traps, within. If nothing was triggered he would then reach in and remove the copper. The panel was reset in the hopes no one else would find it.

"We will have to get back to check our spoils...They will not listen to a sailor from Ship Suljack but they will heed the words of a Wizard of the Arcane Botherhood, Milos said.

"Have the captain give us priority to get me and you back to shore - he will wait till he can secure the ship and search it and that will take time - unless you instruct him to give us passage by boat back to Luskan".

 There seemed nothing of interest in the Captain's closet, and hearing Milos. Waydin had to concur. " Agreed, Milos. Let us retire to above deck, so I might speak with the Captain.Lead the way." Said Waydin to his companion.

Milos led Waydin back above deck and to Ship Renthor's captain.

"Captain - We need to head back to Luskan with haste."

The captain turns to Milos. "A sailor of Ship Suljack gives no orders to a captain of Ship Renthor", Rhos said to Milos as they approached.

 "Waydin wanted to strike Milos for opening his mouth. But he waited for a moment to control his temper, then spoke. " Captain, I have need to be taken ashore in haste. Please have a boat and  sailors assigned, to row us ashore." said Waydin in a polite but firm tone of voice.

"Really? And might ask why? Is it because of what you have the Suljack man holding?", Rhos said, pointing to the small hand chest that Milos held. "And where did you find such an item?"

 Waydin  became angry at being questioned by the Captain." This man is is with me, Captain.And I am on the business of the Brotherhood. What he may or may not have, is the business of the Masters, not you. Now then, If you wish for me to inform the Masters that I have been delayed by you questioning their affairs,,,,," Waydin let the sentence trail off,as he watched the Captain with a serious expression.
