  • Mr. Roadsen and the Party meet Mr. Boggs and his men on the pier.
  • Mr. Boggs attempts to convince Mr. Roadsen to stop this madness immediately because if Strumpet leaves the pier it will be thrown against the other ships in the harbor and put the entire Pirate Fleet at risk.

  • Lucius wades into the waste to find firewood from a broken wagon and falls in as the garbage shifts.
  • The Party is attacked by a 1 armed Otyugh and Lucius drops his oil lantern into the dried out, methane-rich garbage causing a fire to erupt.
  • Octavian and Hoary combine for deadly critical hits against it’s aberrant anatomy and slay it.
