From the Journal of Kraugh Ebonfeather
I awoke in the hold of what I would come to learn as the Wormwood, next to a Strange Metal Man and some swashbuckler. Before I could figure out what happened, the Boatswain, Master Scourge, came in and led us all abovedeck where we met Captain Barnabas Harrigan. He told us to stay queit, but the metal Man, “Number Six” was talking, so Scourge whipped him. The Captain put his first mate, Mister Plugg, in charge and Plugg had us climb the rigging to the crow’s nest. Everyone laughed at me and I almost fell, but Mister Six saved me.
I was assigned a job as a swab, where I meta grim man in the bilges. He didn’t take too kindly to me. I was so tired from cleaning that place, but at least I had a nice meal at the galley. We met a nicelady who gave us back some of our stuff. But after dinner and rum, I was tired. So I went to sleep.
