Before the the Lothario decided to join the Sea Rat expedition to the unknown lands, he and his two brothers had a discussion in the captains' quarters of the Octopus.
"Lothario," Jacobo said "it is time to expand. We have no clue to where our father is or what happened. I want to go on the expedition, but I think it is wise if we split up for the time being. I know some sailors in the Sereen Qay who are willing to make a doubloon with me on trading some weapons."
Alfie and Lothario looked at each other and nodded, this has been coming for some time. Alfie responded: "I'll travel with you to the Sereen Cay where we will get you a ship. I will stay there and try to enlarge the family business on land." Lothario knew they needed to split up, if they ever wanted to create a sizable business.
Alfie and Lothario Fraunces traveled as planned to the Sea Rat village, which was still fairly new. With the help of some connections they bought a class 3 trading ship, sailed over to the settlement to sell to the brothers. After a new crew had been mustered, the ship took of on her first adventure under a new captain. Alfie stayed in the Sereen Cay, fascinated by the tales of the Corlander explorer which never returned from the main island.

The presentation is not very well as I am always struggling to make good pictures with my phone. Need to invest in a decent camera sometime. If anyone knows a good tutorial on how to make quality pics with a white background, please share.
