Our young adventurers found themselves in the city of Port Peril, a known safe haven for pirates. As they took in the city life in the Formidably Lady tavern, they were selected by Master Scourge as new crewmen. Separately they enjoyed the spicy food and rum at the tavern. The night disappeared into a haze until they awoke in the hold of a ship with the other new crew members and with nothing other than the clothes on their backs.
After a brief confrontation with Master Scourge and other pirates, the adventurers made their way to the main deck. The ship, Wormwood, was already at sea. Captain Harrigan introduced them to himself and the first mate, Mr. Plugg.
After the introductions and assignment of duties, the crew was called to witness the Keelhauling of Jakes Magpie. The PCs settled in for their first night aboard ship. The next morning there was a gain a small scuffle as 4 of their fellow crew-mates attempted to make them late for their duties. After another brief confrontation the PCs started day two.
They were selected to take care of a rat problem in the bilges. After clearing out the rats they explored and found a few items that can be used or traded or gambled.
