Mission: Chapter 1: The Sea and the Port
After being quite unceremoniously thrown of the Steamhawk the previous day, Brem had been in quite a particular mood. It wasn't that the old sup McGinty had been rude, people were always rude unless they wanted something, it was the fact he'd seen her and then been denied. To his well trained eyes she was perfection, everything about how she looked just seemed right to him and he knew he would soon be inside her. Tinkering away.
Not having many possessions he'd need Brem found himself heading towards the Barnacles Bar not long before midday. Stood outside he took a look at the building. To his eye it was nothing spectacular and could be improved just by getting rid of the blood from the door, but he wasn't there to criticise the decor.
Pushing open the door the smell of stale beer hit him like a hammer Ahhh the smell of a tavern he thought. Making his way towards the bar he held up a finger indicating to the barman he wanted a beer. Looking round he could see the 'Capt'm' talking with somebody else and decided not to interrupt the pair.
The beer had been put in front of him and the barman held out his hand for payment. Brem fished a small coin out of a pocket and flicked it to him while taking a sip. It tasted like old socks soaked in piss and was just as watery. He could only shake his head.
Just then a large man bumped into him and his beer sloshed onto the pair. They both locked eyes and then looked to the spilt drink and then back to each other. Brem took a deep breath before shouting "Did you just spill my pint?"
