In Which Our Heroes Discover a Map

“Lost and found and nearly drowned/and stranded in a tree,
the pirates found themselves marooned/denied their life at sea,
with wits and steel they cut a deal/and made a common cause,
but little did they know they sailed/into the viper’s jaws.”

The Ballad of the Roundtable Pirates Castaways by Rothas Menteur (work in progress)

Our scurvy band of brigands washed ashore on the isle of Eastwick, on the Eastern border of Bretony. While serving last rites to their unfortunate companion Bartholomew Spencer, they discovered a treasure map tattooed on his back and a note home hidden within his filth-matted beard. The party relieved him of both the map and the note before commending him to a semi-dignified burial at sea.
After an awkward encounter with a stranger in the woods, our miscreants came upon the farming village of Bloody Bay, where they were treated to a less-than-friendly reception. They learned that the people of the village were on edge due to a series of increasingly bold kidnappings by a local band of slavers. The party investigated the kidnappings and eventually managed to trail the kidnappers into the nearby woods, where they stealthily crept into the camp and took the slavers completely by surprise. After a fierce battle, our crew managed to free the kidnapped family of farmers (and a bizarrely-named local leatherworker with a penchant for cutting throats), convince one of the slavers of the error of his ways, and bring the leader of the band back to Bloody Bay to await his rightful punishment. However, shortly after the arrival of Lieutenant Sebastian Carver, the representative of the local constabulary designated to carry out the leader’s execution, the man and his guard were both found dead. Our piratical party now heads for the village of Eastwick, with an offer of potential employment from none other than the local magistrate…
