    "Sam whispers to the harlot "Stay quiet and hidden. Comply with us and we'll set you free. I swear by my mother."

    He then finds a good shadow as close to the side as possible (whichever side he's rowing to)

    The Tiefling whore nods silently and stays below deck.

    Sam finds a deep shadow on the side of the boat and Renda skulks behind the doorway, ready to act.

    Cripsy covers Bahar's boat with the ballista

    Sjon is stationed at the bow.

    Hawkes awaits the Parlay.




    Bahar rows up to the Cog and calls out, "Permission to come aboard?"

    Hawkes stands where both Sam and Renda can get to him should there be any funny business.

    "Aye, permission granted."

    Bahar climbs up the side of the cog, since nobody bothered to lower him a rope ladder.  "The courtesy of this cog is slightly lessened of late."  He grumbles to no one in particular.  

    Bahar addresses Hawkes, "Since I called for the Parlay, I must state me terms first, I suppose....

    Firstly, I wants me life.   (he looks about warily, unsure of the shadows in the darkness)

    Secondly, I wants me loot, just the part that be mine by right of conquest.  (He gestures to 1 chest, wherever Sam had the runic chests laid out)

    uh... Nextly, I want Grumsh's Eye, as the first mate, the ship should go to me.  (Bahar thumps his chest)

    I do see that you also have a claim to the Eye by right of conquest and since yer flying gecko blasted the port, yer seem to have won that dispute.  I offer yer a deal for me life and share of the loot.  I will teach yers how to open the chests (he jiggles a necklace of his own) in exchange for me life.  I tell you now, all 5 chests will explode - BOOM - if you try to open them wrongly.  

    I swear upon the Krakken that I will remain here in Wyvern Cove for the rest of me days.  I plan to buy the Siren's Call and run the girlies.  There is an old Bugbear saying, "If one seeks revenge, yer should dig 2 graves."  If that isn't plain enough already.... no more.   I got enough coin to retire into a life of ale and whores, which suits me just fine.

    Besides, if yer kills me and the last of me crew, who will spread word of your victory over Rogan?  Dead men tell no tales, yer know.  Rogan be famous, as you must know, so it would be no small bit of renown to be told of how you defeated him and claimed the Eye for yerself.

    What says you, Captain Hawkes?  "

    Hawkes is surprised by Bahar's moderation, but not disarmed.  I should rather have dealt with a fool who gives me all that I asked with illusions of killing me in my sleep, but an honest and shrewd negotiation will suffice.

    I would gladly give you all of your requests…” (Hawkes pauses for dramatic effect), “in exchange for Gundren's life and his ship.  What do you say, do we have a deal?”

    Hawkes let's that sink in, knowing that Bahar will not know how to answer.

    “I see that you believe you are being reasonable, but you also want to negotiate from a position of strength. You're caught in a fallacy. You contend for the ship and concede it in the same breath. I don't blame you; sailing with Rogan would make you accustomed to having the upper hand.  But today you do not have the upper hand.”

    “You do not have a claim on this ship because I was Gundren's first mate and you burned my ship.  You and Rogan OWE me a ship.  I accept this cog, so that matter is settled.”

    “As things actually stand I have 5 chests and am at a disadvantage to open them.  You have your life and are at a disadvantage to keep it.  I could either trade your instruction for your loot or your instruction for your life.  Which is worth more to you?  Mind, if you choose your loot, I swear by the rules of Parley to bury you with it.”

    Now to take away his options Marshall Mathers style:

    “But this is a negotiation, and since you have argued my case for the cog, I will argue yours for the loot and then we can shake on it:  Fine instruction has great value. You do still have the keys to this chest that was once yours and is currently mine. And not to overlook that I detest killing someone who has a glimmer of wisdom. (I do not flatter.  You HAVE impressed me).”

     “Since you are willing to be marooned on this… paradise, I shall not leave you without the wherewithal to make a living.  You may keep half of what loot that was previously yours, that was not previously Gundren's, so long as you stand beside each of the other chests as it is opened.”

    Bahar listens carefully to Hawkes as he diligently picks something out of his tusks. About the time Hawkes compliments his wisdom, he pulls out a rather sinewy piece and proceeds to chew it further.

    Bahar sits quietly after Hawkes' conclusion. He carefully licks each massive finger, as if enjoying his possible last meal to the fullest. He finally finishes and looks at Hawkes with a smile, "Hu Hu Hu... no wonder yer the Capt'n, you talks a lot. Bahar agrees to yer terms." He offers his necklace in one hand and holds out a newly-cleaned paw to shake on it.

    I want to give others a chance to see and either react or not react before sealing the deal.

    Hawkes begins to second guess the simplicity of the scenario. Have I miscalculated? This is too easy... Perhaps he has been wanting to retire for some time and just needs an excuse? Have I inadvertently promised more than I think I have? Perhaps he has the curse of a voodoo witch doctor in his saliva, or perhaps the necklace contains an aboriginal curse that he can only get rid of by selling it? Or perhaps he will indeed try to kill us in our sleep.

    "Your life and these 5 chests opened for half of what is in this chest minus any of it 'twas Gundren's," Hawkes reiterates more clearly.

    Hawkes knows Renda will back his choice. Renda does not like to make choices, and he trusts Hawkes and his other Clan. As long no-one messes with Renda's food, he is generally good natured and easy going with his Clan.

    Sjon stands atop the flight of stairs leading down to the deck, listening to Hawkes' negotiations. He trusts him implicitly more and more as the years have gone by. He stands ready for action, should the situation change suddenly.

    Crispy leans casually on the arming baton for the ballista. “Cross us and you will burn Bahar. You know now not to doubt that.”

    Hawkes spits in his hand to match Bahar's salivary expulsion and shakes. He does not take the necklace. "You will show us how to open the chests. This Parley is not ended."

    To the crew, "keep watch as before. Sam, mark Bahar's process carefully." Hawkes will also look for hidden movements that are not included in the verbal explanation.

    Bahar cocks an eyebrow at Hawkes, "Were yer paws dirty too?  Hu hu hu, you all are a paranoid lot, ain't cha?"

    Bahar heads over the 5 chests.  He pauses to make sure he has permission to arrange them.  Assuming he does, he lines them out in a row.  "Dis one her is the Capt's chest.  Dis one belongs to me.  Dis one is fer the Magewright.  Dis one fer the Sgt of Arms and dis one... dis one.... went whee whee whee all the way home.  HU HU HU"  Bahar looks about for a reaction then continues, "Rogan never liked dat one either, humpf.  Dis last one is fer the crew to share."  

    He sets his necklace down on the deck near his chest.  "Did yer find the other 4? "

    Bahar lets out a grumbly sigh, "That is what me is trying to der here.  Me needs all 5 necklaces to do it.  Der is 1 necklace per chest, see?"  He points to his necklace laid out in front of the 1st mate's chest.   "Do tell me you kept it straight which corpse had which necklace?"  He points to the first chest, "Put Rogan's necklace here".  He points to the Magewright's chest, "and Bellara's (witch) here"  he points to the Sgt's chest "Stout's necklace here"  and the crew chest "and the last one here."  

    He looks at Sam, "Yer can do it or me can do it, don't much matter ter me"

    Sam did collect the other 4, yes

    Sam helps Bahar set them out on the deck in pairs of chests:necklaces.


    Bahar explains as he goes, "The best way, yer see, is to have each off'cer hold his own necklace.  Dat way, yer don't be getting them confused and do it wrongly"  Bahar chuckles to himself.  

    Bahar motions to Hawkes, "Order is important and rank must be respected, yer see?  The Capt'n's chest MUST be opened first, then the rest according to rank.  I stay right here.  The Capt'n must place the necklace on top of the chest inside the circle of runes."  Bahar points to the location on the chest

    study quick GM table talk - I found a really cool 5e magic item generator that we will be using to make these rolls for the loot inside the chests, 1 at a time, assuming you get them all open correctly.  The loot rolls will be random, so the party can roleplay how to divide the loot afterwards.  It is not the intention that Hawkes gets the items in the first chest, etc


    The Captain's chest reveals a pile of coins and gems and 2 items that glow of magic:

    a leather helm with a fur lining and 2 massive horns




    and

    a tarnished ring that looks like a sea urchin






    Bahar asks, "Captain Hawkes, who be yer First Mate?  That is the 2nd chest that must be opened, following rank of course"

    Sam places the necklace on top of the next chest, like the first, the runes spin, align and begin to glow....  CLICK!  it pops open.

    The first mate's chest also contains a pile of coins and gems....

    there is a long bow with what appears to be a white or silver dragon head




    and a very sturdy looking blue belt




    Bahar looks at his former chest fondly, "This be me chest, it was. I just want the coins, yer can keep the items. Fair?"

    a keen eye estimates there are maybe 200 gold worth of coins in there, the captains had roughly 300 gp, all in mixed denominations and gems


    Bahar motions to the (3rd)  Magewright's chest, "And who be yer Magewright?"
    this is the necklace that came off the witch

    The Tiefling Whore breaks her cover and rushes out, jumping into an embrace with Bahar, "Oh Bah! You can finally buy the Siren. You promised I could be the madam, remember, Bah?"

    Bahar spins her around, "Hu hu hu! Of course, Shanti. As long as you kill that mean little dwarven bitch, Trixie"

    Shanti shows her Tiefling fangs, "She's as good as gone, luv!"

    "Crispy, back to your watch, now. And good lady, this is still a Parley. Please stay below to ensure your safety. You may leave with Bahar when he leaves peacefully."

    Once Crispy is back on watch. "Sjon, will you attend?"

    Shanti puffs out her lower lip, "Just remember that you will do as I say, when you visit my house." She stomps off to the lower hold in protest.

    Sjon walks down the steps with purpose to the parlay between the cap and the former first mate. He looks towards Hawkes with a raised eyebrow.

    Renda remains silent and hidden unless bidden by Hawkes to leave his assigned post, or unless treachery occurs.

    "They are chests Sjon. The ranks are subjective. Renda is our unstillable heart and an inscrutable judge of loyalty.
    He is as essential to us as any man, but you appear to be fourth in command. Renda will be along shortly once you have returned to your watch."

    Sjon takes the necklace, steps in front of the 4th chest, and places the necklace in the circle atop Stout's chest.

    "<sqwak>  Unfeather not a bad bird? <sqwak>"  He flies down near Hawkes, but stops short of landing on his shoulder.  He does land on the rail of the ship near Hawkes.


    Sjon follows the ritual.... CLICK!

    the 4th chest reveals some coins and....

    a red headband with an unfamiliar character



    and an amulet with a blue Rhino and Elephant




    Bahar gestures to the last chest, "Only be 1 left..... "

    "Pretty bird...". Hawkes taps on his shoulder to suggest that the bird perch there. "Just don't poop on me," he warns firmly.

    "Thank you Sjon. Let's call you The Quartermaster. Now please resume your watch."

    Once the watch is restored. "Renda Mon. You are last to attend, but not least. Please join us."

    As Crispy passes by Hawkes while returning to his post at the ballista, he quietly says to his new captain “ Umm, Hawkes? The masters at the monastery always told us the best way to defeat an enemy is to make him your friend. If Bahar’s really ummm, settling down, you know...might be umm good to have a stake at his table...I’d give up the pearls for that...”

    Renda lumbers forward, staring down Bahar with a gleam in his eye and a wide, toothy grin - but not before he stashes the pouch with the Kraken dagger in a convenient nook.

    He takes the necklace and does as directed...

    The last chest's runes align and glow, as the others.

    This was formerly the crew chest and it contains....

    a potion, a black bead, a feather, coins and

    a coiled serpent ring with emerald eyes



    a sturdy-looking staff




    total of coins and valuable items:

    6000 cp, 400 sp, 170 gp,   4 x Amethyst (15 gp), 2 x Chrysoberyl (45 gp), Coral (30 gp), 4 x Garnet (10 gp), Jade figurine (100 gp), 10 x Pearl (100 gp), 3 x Tourmaline (20 gp)

    total is about 1640 gp of which Bahar wants his 200

    study note, it costs a pearl of 100gp to Identify (ritual spell) a magic item.  you have enough for 10 immediately, but will need to find a pearl dealer for the rest and future items

    if you use all 10 pearls, that leaves about 440gp as cash in coins\gems

    I count 13 total magical items from the chests, plus Rogan's Anchor chain


    Bahar looks at Hawkes, "We done here?"

    "Aye Bahar. Take your 200. Will you accept a retainer of 50 more? I may have need of an honest businessman as a contact should I find myself in this cove again."

    Bahar gladly accepts the 250 and replies, "I leave Trixie's fate to Shanti. I wouldn't be expecting any more passengers, hu hu hu."

    Bahar and Shanti will take the launch and plan to leave it at the docks, unless anyone else wants to go with to row it (and your other launch) back to the Eye.



    study Let me know your plans for tomorrow.

    you have enough pearls to ID 10\14 magic items - let me know which ones are excluded


    you all earned enough XP from 3 encounters (ship attack, krakken, Bahar) and terrific roleplaying to +1 UP! cheers

    Revenge is a dish best served with cold cuts is over. The next chapter will begin once I know your plans....
