Session 27: Kulrosh Deadeye
We left the town as soon as we could the next morning. Not much sense in staying any longer than necessary. I have faith in our abilities, but against a whole fleet of warships, the Prosperity simply doesn’t stand a chance, even with Besmara on our side.
Besmara….why her? Of all the Gods we could have championed for….like Gorum, God of battle and strength. Or even the Gods of my Orcish ancestry…Lamashtu, Rovagug, or Zon-Kuthon…..at least those Gods are worshipped throughout all the lands of Golarion. Not just in some back-alley shit-hole that is the shackles…..most pirates only pray to her on their deathbed anyways…begging for just one more day of life. Pathetic. So why? Why would a lesser diety even bother intervening in the affairs of mortals. Whatever the Gods intentions are, for now, I put my faith in my sword, in our crew, in our captain.
I had hoped our journey to port peril to be uneventful, unfortunately it seems we are not that lucky. We came across a few poorly made Kuru vessels assaulting a finely made Cheliax ship. We at first decided to avoid such a conflict, neither one of those sides were our allies…however, some translated jibberish from the Kuru indicated otherwise.
We somehow managed to negotiate a ceasefire agreement. During which we conversed with the Kuru…well at least Gas did….it became painfully obvious that though my strength in body is unmatched…my strength in mind leaves much to be desired, a weakness I shall have to remedy.
We eventually made port for repairs and much needed relaxation from recent traumatic events….in an attempt to raise what little may remain of the crew morale I paid them all a sizable bonus from my own pocket. That should keep them occupied for awhile.
For the time being I shall make my way to the library to begin sharpening my mind with books as you would a blade with a whetstone.
I can’t help but wonder to myself as I pour over the stale parchment and ink; if my mind is still present with him in battle….is he still present with me in study? How long can I continue to hold the Berserker at bay?
“Not much longer.” He responded.
