Out and About with Fedler:
"Oh," says the black mage. He hangs his head in shame. "I didn't think about that."

Out and About with Fedler:
Fedler sighs, and gently pats Steve on the back. "From what I remember, she's not that close to her father, but you still humiliated him. You should tell her that you're sorry once we're at sea. You can still make it right."

"I'll do that. He was a good man who just wanted his daughter to be happy even if she does ignore him. How could anyone ignore their parents Fedler? Don't they know what they have?"

Out and about with Fedler:
This seems to sadden Fedler, whose facial features suddenly soften, reminding Steve of the hunter he met outside of Lomner's inn.

"That's a question for the ages, Steve."

She looks at the end of the street, and recognizes the shops that mark the border of the open market.

"Let's go. We have to buy everything we need before the ship leaves."

Fedler waits for him before she starts walking again.

Out and about with Fedler:
This appears to catch Fedler off-guard, but she still manages to give a quick answer.

"I just needed to change my look."

She pauses, like if she wasn't sure what else to add to that, then look at Steve, and with a little smirk, she says, "Don't let your hair grow; you would look horrible."

Fedler actually chuckles at this strange sight.

"Come on, we tarried long enough."

She finds one leather shop, and enters it.

I think we can skip to whenever you have finished purchasing what you need, and go from there.

Steve used to hang out on the docks and watch people when he finally got a bit of freedom so he has a general idea of the kinds of things sailors would wear and goes out of his way to not buy any of them. No sense presenting himself as some kind of sailing expert when he's not. Instead he kits out as a novice sailor on his first trip; cheap but well made is the order of the day for him. It will be scratchier than he is used to but at least he shouldn't stand out too much so long as he stays with Konrad and Mihai.

OOC:
Got it Kolson.

"Oh, right!" exclaims Breeze. Her mood darkens a little, and she explains to her two companions what she learned. "She didn't finish writing the letter, but it said that they would send someone to check up on his behavior. I don't really understand why, but from what I gathered, he is more... 'violent' than the other patients, but also less irrational."

She considers these facts.

"Come to think of it, these are unusual madness symptoms. I think?"

The fairy tilts her head, and says, "I don't know."

OOC:
I'll wait for Konrad to chime in.

Also, it's normal if you don't understand what Mihai and Breeze are talking about Rory. Konrad doesn't have the in-charater knowledge about what happened between the three of them.

pirate disguise:

Captain Hook from the recent live-action Peter Pan film. Less fancy, more of a practical style, all dull and not made of any shiny materials, and no frills. No hook, either. But the pants are leather. No wig.

To hide my scars
I will be buying what's basically a commoner's turtleneck to wear underneath it. On top of that, a bandana that I can wrap all around my face(but leave a slit for the eyes), and tie tight to keep it secure.

Hat
But the hat will be different, it will instead be an admiral's tri-corner hat, and it will be just as fancy as the rest of the outfit would be if I hadn't dumbed it down.

Piercings
I will also suffer through getting my ear pierced for a small gauge earring, and an hoop earring that hangs from that.
And my left eyebrow pierced for both a stud and a ring.
And my lip pierced for a stud ring.
And my nose pierced for a (gulp) septum ring.
^^With bandana facewrap, I won't be needing the stuff that won't be anywhere near the eyes. Nos pierceing stays because I will allow a slit for my nostrils, and the septum ring may be hanging visibly.
This is mainly to complete the image of a pirate who's had enough success to splurge on enhancing his personal image, but not too much. If it helps, they're all brass, which is a non-ferrous metal alloy. Brass will turn brown over time. I've done a little research

Face paint
Lastly, heavy mascara applied underneath my eyes, and especially above and around my scarred right eye to conceal the presence of scarring on my face. Actual mascara. Yes, I've done more research.

Now, how much of this is too much for reimbursement from the Coins?

about that job...:
I'm done with my forgery work, so I check about that job one of my contacts said might have for me, because I am interested in making some more cash.

"Maybe they should take the glob-yule away," he spits out absently. "Wait, what are we talking about?"

Konrad missteps. "In his head? Right, new magic. Anyway, a little less delusion, a little more aggression seems to add up to the same amount of crazy, if you ask me. Poor man."

Sympathetic shrug. "We'll have to wait and see what happens, but it's up to the asylum to suss out what's wrong and how to deal with him. I don't think we have anything to add at this point. A terrible shame."

disguise:
I guess I shouldn't say "recent" when I mean Captain Hook from the 2003 film Peter Pan.

OOC:
To Kolson; your outfit will be paid in full by the Coins.

To K; your outfil will also be paid in full. As for your sea experience, I guess we'll see what happens.

To Rory; man, I was searching everywhere in that Pan movie from last year, and I was like, "that's it?" Good thing you specified it was the 2003 movie. That outfit looks much cooler.

Also, the piercings, and especially the hat, will cost you more than what the Coins are willing to reimburse; more specifically, 9 gp.

It's a really nice hat.

For Konrad:
Your forgery contact, Ms. Wrinkle, says that she'll have a new job for you whenever you come back from your trip. They operate exclusively in the Free Feathers, and she doesn't have any job to offer that would take less than a day to complete.

Breeze nods solemnly to Konrad's acute observation.

"He's right," she says with melancholy. "Let's go shopping instead of talking about how there's nothing we can do about this."

She flies away to find the toy store.
____________________________________________________________

Breeze stays for a whole hour at the toy store to find something new to wear, but the only piece of clothing that she likes is a blue cloak which is a shade darker than her hair.

She shouts with joy, "I look like a super hero!", while zooming around the store.

The owner, an old woman nearing her seventies, was thrilled to finally meet that fairy she heard so much about; once it was clear that Breeze wanted new clothes, the owner proposed that she sews outfits expressly designed for the fairy. Breeze, who was ecstatic, immediately agreed. She bought the cloak, and arranged to come pick up the rest of her new clothes once she's back from her trip .

Once the whole party reconvenes at pier seven of the docks, they finally see the ship they are going to travel on, and a frantic crew who is finishing the last minute preparations.

Ship:

Fedler, who has now changed her clothes for a new outfit, looks like this.

Fedler 2.0:

She gestures to the rest of the party to get closer so nobody but them hear what she has to say.

"During this trip, call me Red. I figured that's enough."

Breeze is amazed by the simplicity of the name, and her mouth takes the shape of an "o".

"In that case, you guys call me Blue! That's perfect!"

She lands on Fedler's shoulder, leans on the hunter's ear with her hand, like she would with a wall, and happily announces, "We're Red and Blue! The most feared duo in all the western sea!"

A slight smile appears on Fedler's face. "Sure. That's us."

There's 15 minutes left before the ship departs, and none of you can see Zelk.

name change:
Quick false name change for me, for something shorter, less of a mouthful, and not obviating my Myrzen descent: just "Akim".

[*tosses the gold pieces across the gaming table* That'll do me fine, a paltry sum really.]

Forgot to roll Diplomacy vs Zelk for meeting her for the first time to go towards disposition. We're gonna say I rolled that with my little q-snap-plus-finger-pointing gesture. Result, please?

Konrad twirls about and flourishes in his new longcoat, marveling at the look and feel of the fashion he once sported many moons ago. He can't help but pull out his sword at the mirror in the shop and shout, in a manner very much unlike he used to speak, "Avast, ye scuttle-hounds!" giving the store owner and customers a bit of a jump. He chuckles innocently and puts his weapon away and flourishes with a bit of jazz hands at them to show them that he's enjoying his new look.

Roll Diplomacy for the above interaction.

Later, taking in the sight of the ship, he momentarily loses himself. It's the first time in at least half a year or more that he's seen a decent ship meant for the high seas. Love me some cannons. Seen bigger though, with way more cannons than that. And no figurehead? I suppose it's just as well. We've no need of a ship to wage naval combat, and these folks do have a budget to keep.


He sighs with some slight disappointment. "Wouldn't bother to loan the prettiest ship to the peons, myself. I understand."

"Ahum..." Red, Blue, Stan, Davine, and me, Akim. He whispers each name as he looks between each of the people present, who may hear him muttering the names. He snaps his fingers. Got 'em. "I think I will dispense with the weight of this accent, it's really too much sometimes, even for me."

"Well then, shall we? I'm looking forward to becoming acquainted with our burgeoning womanizer's ravishing fiance." Without further ado, "Akim" strides up the plank and onto the ship to get a better look at her, and wander about in search of their Free Feathers military officer. No doubt she may have heard of me, I dare say. A bit too much to hope for genial formalities and a diplomatic attitude from her, given my past misdeeds, unfortunately.

Konrad:
Done.

Also, this ship is made for naval combat. Konrad would know about it, although there are other ships that are bigger than that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concorde_class_frigate

Also, we'll say that Konrad hasn't put his bandana on his face yet. Trust me on this.

Except the nod that she gave him when he revealed his alias, Konrad has no idea what Zelk's impressions of him are.

The owner of the shop, as well as the customers, do jump a little at Konrad's whoop, and anxiety spreads across their faces when they see the red mage draw his sword, but they quickly calm after they understand what he is doing, and most of them ignore him; although one of the male customers does smile at this unusual sight.

Back at the docks, when Konrad steps onto the ship, a middle-aged man with a huge black beard standing near the wheel suddenly shouts, "Attention on deck! Captain on board!"

The whole crew systematically stops moving, turns towards Konrad, and salute him. They won't move until given the order to continue with the preparations.

'Stan' will follow 'Akim' up the boarding plank but will absolutely be floored by this turn of events. Captain Kondrad? But as it sinks in a huge grin will slowly overtake his look of surprise. "Why is everything always so wonderful?"

DLL watches as Akim is crowned captain. He wonders if he'll have to go scrub the deck if so ordered, and whether the crew would make him walk the plank if he refused.

[I'm borrowing a line from Pirates of the Caribbean cuz I'm a little blank, don't hate me.]

The poor lad just landed 800G in debt, and this fleeting feeling is all that stands between him and the return to that sinking realization - and perhaps a the idea of a rendezvous with his not-fiance. So Konrad chooses not quip about it.

"It gets better. Come this way, an' don't be afraid to chime in. Yar me first mate, after all!"

He doesn't actually know if Stan is his first mate. Akim gives a wink to the bosun, and walks toward the semi-circle of men, standing between them. "Give me yar names when I point to you."

After they've each given their names, he'll speak at them, "Do ya have the courage an' fortitude to follow orders an' stay true to course an' crew in the face of danger an' almost certain death?"

The answer he expects from them may perhaps be just for show, or the definite truth, as each man takes it.

Diplomacy
Convince the unwilling or meek to bother answering and humoring him, with an assist from Kolson if he adds something like "Well lads?" or "What say you?"

First mate? Sure, why not?! Man Stan is a great sailor. He hasn't sailed a day in his life and here is he is first mate of a fighting ship. This is the best day of his life. Following along behind Akim trying not to look too much like a tourist he decides to help out his captain. "Yeah! Courage and death apparently!"

OOC:
It IS a nice quote.

Red is bewildered by this unexpected turn of events. Blue suddenly pops up from behind Akim's shoulder, raises her right fist in the air, and shouts, "Courage and death!"

The crew is taken by surprise by the fairy's sudden apparition, but their rigorous training kicks in, and they clamor, "Courage and death!" repeatedly, until their captain gestures them to stop. Once they're told to resume their previous task, the man near the wheel comes down on the deck, and approaches the party.

"Captain. I'm Edward, the quartermaster of this crew. I have been told you were to be assigned as our captain for the length of your mission. We have a cabin ready for you, as well as for your comrades. If you have any question about this crew or this ship, I am at our disposition."
