 +====== Campaign IX, Chapter 5, Episode 9 ======
  
 +**Location:​** ​ Straits of Sloph
 +
 +**Characters:​** ​ Captain Karazos, Hagin Silverbeard,​ Irettan
 +
 +The //Stormy Maiden// was registered to Karazos of Al Fahim. ​ A twin-masted brigantine, she carried cargo among the [[gaeleth:​places:​Middle Seas]] from Teras to Kur Maeth, Aboris to Moharis. ​ According to her logs and the harbor masters, the //Maiden// made fair profits carrying rare and exotic goods that were neither illegal nor contraband. ​ How Captain Karazos was able to line up such deals was a secret that many a ship's captain and merchantman would like to know.
 +
 +Karazos'​ first mate was a dwarf called Hagin Silverbeard,​ heavily tattooed from head to toe and as mean a mate as any.  He carried a heavy warhammer in his belt, and a crossbow slung over his back.  With the crossbow, he would often fire blunt-tipped rib-breaking slow-moving quarrels at members of the crew that moved too slow.  The captain was the kind leader, and the first mate was the evil that none dared cross.
 +
 +As rough and gruff as Hagin was, the ship's navigator was truly the most feared member of the crew.  She was a tall, regal woman, with skin the color of new-fallen snow and hair the color of raven'​s feathers. ​ She was as cold as the harshest of winter nights -- and a frost witch, as well.  Unlike many other mages, she had the gift of being invisible to the powers of the Seekers. ​ She had also used her gift to help enchant the smuggling compartments aboard the //Stormy Maiden//.
 +
 +Captain Karazos had several smuggling contacts throughout the Middle Seas, who used good cargos to help hide the smuggling operations aboard the ship.  In late Spring of 1332 Avard, the //Storm Maiden// managed to slip through the Straits of Sloph, right past the nose of the Inquisition,​ with a young woman of a mage and a number of arcane items aboard (not including the ship's own frost witch). ​ The ship was also smuggling a purple powder that could knock a man unconscious before he next blinked his eyes, which it picked up from the town of [[gaeleth:​places:​Breakrock]].
 +
 +Defender Ravis of the //Thrust of Yatindar//, reputed to be one of the most thorough of Kur Maen sea captains with a nose for contraband and mages, was narrowly evaded by Captain Karazos.

 +**DM's Notes:​** ​ Dinner was sketti, and it was good -- although next time, I'll have to make more.  When there aren't any leftovers, it tends to make me think someone went away hungry! ​ Bill has been choosing where we play for each of these sessions, and he chose the Straits of Sloph, last time we were together. ​ The guys managed to avoid fighting and getting into combat several times, and I'm quite proud of them for that.  They have just as good a time role-playing,​ as they do rolling for initiative and then dealing as much damage as they can.  Sommer intended to play Irettan, but wound up having to sit out the session; she was pretty tired, and Bill was able to take over for her.
