Found a Minstrel, named Agadore Dooley, she spits a lot when she talks, but she's good at what she does.  At first I thought she was a street urchin, but no, she had a huge place to live with many items.  She has agreed to join us and chronicle our travels.  Orn helped to move her stuff onto the ship, it took up 2 rooms.  For now, she is definitely a friend.
Met up with Alex again at breakfast, he has offered to take us on a tour of their ships Graveyard.  Seems that here even the wrecks are guarded.  This place is huge and has too many rules.  The smaller ports are much easier to deal with.  Hopefully we can find plenty of good materials if it is so hard to get in to explore it.
While exploring the wrecks, Orn had another epiphany which lead us to a ancient wreck from the far east that was sporting the same symbol as his armour.  We found a golden key hidden within and after a search of the aft section we found a booby trapped capsule, which contained a large blue Shard with Avian runes all over it.  Orn also found and fixed 2 other Shards, a small red one and a clear one.
Alex also showed us the wreckage of Agatha's Corvette that contained two very damaged Shard engines.  We made a deal with him to fix them, so that they could be installed into her new corvette, but only if we could present them to her ourselves.  As I hoped, he agreed.  This will surely impress her.
As we were heading back up to the city, we stumbled upon a Pirate courier ship, smuggling out arms, ammo and rockets at one of the lowest level docks.  We had enough parts to create an Ornball, so we used it.  Orn pitched it perfectly and the ship was obliterated, the few crewmembers left on the dock were dispatched without much effort.  The ensuing fireball brought two of the port's ironclad down to investigate.  She was onboard.  Agatha looked supreme; her uniform was spotless and impeccable.  We found out why soon after.
Apparently there is a place called the Empire, and their representative had come to the city.  We join Agatha, Alex and Magnus to hear a very thinly veiled threat put over as praise for the city.  If I ever find this Commander Winters alone, I'll cook him into a stew for the dogs.
Once that was over, we actually got around to shopping.  I like Agadore more; she has a good eye for fashion, finally someone to talk about clothes with!
Talked with 2 armament merchants, and bargained for 2 medium Gatling guns for the Rose, along with ammo for a few fights.  The second merchant, named Rick, actually does unique custom work.  Orn had another epiphany while standing in his shop, and came up with a new type of weapon that even Rick had never seen -- a lightning gun.  We started talks with him to get a few of these made.  Orn want to go into business with him for a cut of the profits.
Ran into Agatha for the second time today, I think she's starting to like me.  She was worries about Alex getting into trouble, so asked us for help.
Seems this Commander Winters was at Magnus' offices and they were in a heated argument.  Things are not looking good for this city.  We contained Alex, but to what end?
She is here, so we will stay.  It's idiotic, but for some reason I can help myself.
Session End:  Sunday -- 11pm
