Day 1: The Autumn Star, a passenger and cargo ship en route to Fort Kaldwell, is attacked by pirates. The party were all incapacitated in the attack.
Day 2: The party awoke on-board the Wormwood, the pirate ship which attacked and sank the Autumn Star. They learned that they had been press-ganged, along with four other survivors. Mr. Plugg, the second in command aboard the Wormwood, tested the new recruits. Renegade was chosen to work in the rigging, Orren was assigned to be a swab, and Gull was sent to the galley to work with Ambros “Fishguts” Kroop, the ship’s drunken cook.
Day 3: Fipps, Syl, Aretta, and Jaundice Jape, four pirates on Scourge & Pluggs’ good sides, assault the party in the morning in order to make them late for work. Orren and Fipps drew blades, and Orren was whipped for injuring Fipps. Renegade was able to intimidate Fipps into submission, but later killed him by forcing him to over-drink in a game of heave.
