To celebrate the fact that I Rodsh Derr have become a member of the Free Traders Association, I've build them a ship. I gave command to Captain Bennet, a former mate of mine for whom this is his first ship as a captain. I present the FTA Achernar The FTA Achernar has been specially designed to transport big rum barrels, her mainsail boom has been strenghtend so she can load and discharge the barrels herself in any port, and her hatches enlarged. --- On the mainmast you see the Sea-Rats colours On the mizzenmast you'll find the banner of the FTA and on the stern the personal flag of Rodsh Derr, which doesn't have to mean he is onboard though.
Currently in Bastion. Rodsh: So? What do you think? Cathy: Think?, It’s just some hideous abandoned house. R: I bought it. C: What? Why would you do that? R: To use as a house. C: For whom? We’ve a ship! R: I Thought you’d like it. C: Like it? Did you got hit with a 2x2 brick in the head or something? It hasn’t got a scrape of paint on it. It’s completely overgrown with some poisonous vine. Not to mention the strangler bush over there! R. Poisonous? it got nice flowers C: DO you even have more then one stud in that brain of yours?! R: It can be painted you know. and some gardener can take down that vine. C: Well I’m not living there. I’d rather sail before the mast on an Oleon Order ship. C. How much did you pay for it anyway? R. Just five Doubloons. C. I’m going back to the ship. We are sailing tomorrow, we've got a ball to attent remember. OOC. I was experimenting with building a vine on a wall. and with the current grey scale challenges on the web in my mind, this was the result. The story followed soon after, and then I decided it was worth the post on here. And yes I did this because I got stuck with the water issue on the moc I had planned, (see shipwright thread)
After passing a very rough Sea of Storms, Rodsh found him self in Bastion. His crew is off to enjoy the town, Cathy is out to get provision for the ship. But Rodsh himself travelled to the outskirts of town just a little up the Lifeflow river where he finds the Shipwright Brothers. Masters in building small boats, sloops, launches, and even the odd canoe, you tell them what you want and they’ll build it. Rodsh is there to order new boats for his ship, as he lost two on his travels, and the other one is beyond repair, or as the boatswain said it, “a rotten death trap”. They recently hired a new apprentice, who today is trying steam bending planks for the first time. He’s quick to find out why they gave him those pliers to hold the plank.
After a long journey beyond the known world, Rodsh and Cathy find themselves in the Sea of Storms. Their ship made a quick stop in * to visit Rodsh his cousin Jacob who is still in charge of the Derr Merchants Warehouse, the trade business is doing good. They picked up some newspapers at the stop over. Apparently there is a Ball hosted in King’s Harbour. Rodsh finds that is an excellent event to find out what all this buzz about newly discovered islands and adventures to the east is all about. But first they’ll have to visit Bastion, Jacob didn’t have any new boats in store, and the ship is in desperate need of some new ones. in Bastion there should be some available. and the crew needs a day or two off anyway and what is not a better place to have fun then in Bastion. *(I can’t find out where I ‘placed it’ on an Eslandonian island it should be according to the topic.)
