I wandered the city a bit hoping a merchant or tavernkeeper might buy my loot. I spoke with the denizens of The Foaming Flask then wandered around doing a bit more of the same.
Very clunky movement and interface tonight with a couple of freezes. This put me IN A MOOD so when it began raining and the wind began howling I stopped by the little shack by the docks which is the first house you can buy.
Coming away from the shack I was approached by the unfortunately named First Mate Malvulis who warned me in no uncertain terms that I'd be in trouble if I went on her ship.
So, I did a most unusual thing, I ran and jumped on her ship like a yahoo and sure enough her gnarly crew followed me and made short work of me and my skellie.
A tad unfriendly. I'll avoid them once I get my snuggly shack. I did not save with me dead.
