He just couldn't get their assault on the town of of his head. There was something about it that didn't sit right with him. Since when do pirates wear cap...

Re: On the road (D&D 5E IC)

Kaine was slowly lowering the pirate from the roof on a rope bound around his ankles. His smile at the quickness the others had captured or taken down the other sea dogs with. A smile quickly fading as the guard approached. The lovely guard and her Watchmaster at the gate aside, he was unsure of th...
