Today I saw Riaris Krine trainin’ the new hands on grapplin’ and climbin’ aboard the ship, so’s they’re ready when the time comes. Good bit of a chuckle! Only the ‘alf-orc managed to stay up on the line, and poor Perri – he nearly got there, one ’and on the gunwales, and ’ee got a face full o’ rotten cabbages chucked down, slid right down into the drink! ‘Ee was fine, and we all ’ad a good drink. Mind, they’re a pretty ham-handed bunch – Here’s luck to ’em when they got to do it for real.
This eve, the orc took a new peg leg out fer Riaris – Bes knows where ‘ee found it on this ship! She didn’t think much to the gift, and black ’ands got a lash for ’is efforts.
