Why did I get on the boat again?
Oh that’s right – my overwhelming sense of duty to protect the weak from the oppressors. Well, looking around the Melora’s Fury I can see there are plenty of oppressed on this ship – or not. All these people look like battle hardened sailors of varying degree.
Clearly reports that Xara smuggled children were wide of the mark. Instead it looks like a story of smuggled dragons – and possibly other beasts, magical or not. Guess that makes it alright then! Nothing to see here folks…
“No creature should ever be chained, that was exactly why I bumped that mage on the ship!” Yeah let’s go with that Jason, everyone will lap that up. Let’s forget the death threats the dragon offered up, that’s not important.
And to top it off, we are now headed to Erigaelis, a place I have never been and was never intending to head to! What we’ll find there is anyone’s guess.
Okay, being serious, at this point, I almost wish we had found children instead – then the sense of dread I have wouldn’t be nearly as bad. Unleashing a dragon on your own party (albeit a month from now) can do that to you I guess. Of course, I’m not worried about myself at all – battle is second nature to me, even against such a beast. However putting my comrades in danger because of my own actions…………that is unacceptable. I already have enough dead people on my conscience as it is, I don’t need theirs added to it.
Will Biithul even remember us a month from now? Maybe, maybe not. In any case, a month is a long time. Many things will have changed by then – we will all be much stronger – and should Biithul decide to keep true to his word, I’ll make sure I correct my mistake.
