As told by Kuda of the Bara.
Kuda curls up with Rolf after a long night and falls asleep nuzzled up to his fur while dreaming of the day..
After leaving the bar the crew wanders over to the shrine of the gods. Kuda couldn’t help but notice Umberlee’s presence seems far greater than it should be in this city. He cleans up Selune’s shrine and makes some offerings. Small motes of silvery light drift down and wrap around him. Timothy cleans another shrine nearby. This one appears to be for Sylvanus, and a small leaf floats down to Timothy as Kuda approaches. Kuda leaves the slaad leathers, some herbs, and a map of the sunken forest as a tribute while prayed for permission to have the Selunite shrine in his forest.
Ghaisek is approached by an old haggish woman who could dismiss Caliban with a though. She gave him a scroll and then fades away.
The crew makes their way to a map shop and try to bargain with the shop keep. Everyone finds a different map that speaks to them. Rolf finds a map of a dragon horde at the top of a mountain, Timothy finds a really nice map of the Moon Shae Isles that he plans to send to his sister as well as a map to something called the Star Mantle, Ghaisek finds a map to the Tower of Lamentation, and Kuda finds a map to the lost city of the giants which the Lady seemed to think is something the crew needed.
They head over to the Peg Leg Pony where Rolf orders some shots and then hits on a captain for some information. The captain says all that’s needed is to register to talk to the king. After more flirting, the crew pays the tab and some silly antics ensue.
While he’s doing that, Kuda starts deciphering Ghaisek’s scroll. It describes how to make the ship’s sails into wings or fins. It details more about something called “wild space.” He then reads some of the orc poetry and discerns the map he has is to Xxiphu.
Ghaisek, Timothy, and Kuda head down to the dock to see if they can find more information on the kraken ship that passed through here. Buoy runs up to cause a distraction while Timothy sneaks a peak at the log book. The Kraken Society ship left 15 days ago under Captain Mangus Wallerbee: the man who killed Barkus’ lover and lead the munity on the Kraken’s Bane.
Rolf starts running in his sleep, and Kuda pulls him tighter while whispering some sexy orc poetry to help him sleep. Kuda nips his ear and kisses him gently on the cheek before quietly sneaking out of the room. He descends down into the hold of the ship and slips into Gaemon’s room. He grabs a hand full of the sleeping elf’s goodberries and says, “I have something for you.” Kuda leads Gaemon to the shrines and says while kissing him, “Our goddesses may be opposed, but that doesn’t mean we have to be. I love you.” He points Gaemon down the hallway to Umberlee and then turns to the shrine of Selune. Kuda then goes and lay down his star crystal at the altar of Selune and says, “I’m ready.”
