Captain Sid stood at the wheel of the Cackling Crow, the quick little ship of the Snapped Scull pirates. They were a lesser known group, not particularly high on the dangerous pirate scale but that was a advatage in Sid's eye. They did not pillage entire villages so they were welcome in most places and they did not kill innocent people so they didn't have a entire army chasing after them. The captain hummed 'Randy Dandy' as he happily directed the ship to a Northern merchant boat in the distance. They had 'acquired' a message speaking of the ship's schedule and now they were following it from a long ways away. Kauri was in the crow's nest, (hopefully) watching the ship carfully and waiting to hollar when the two ships guarding it left. He hadn't issued the command to prepare for battle, just for the rest of the crew to make sure their weapons were working properly. He wondered what they were up to, and hoped that it wouldn't end with the ship sinking.
