a monthly saga
posted on the 7th of each month - until the narwal is found
The search continues for the narwal and stolen treasure...
Our Capt Vix is in a temper most foul.
She is presently on her way to a tavern, Esme's Cove, on that Persian Gulf island straight ahead.
She seeks information...
Specifically, the whereabouts of a certain Narwal.
Just who is this Narwal that has our captain searching the seven seas for?
Our last voyage found us in hot pursuit of The Flying Elephant. When the Rusty Dagger met The Flying Elephant in port at Goa, India it was too late.
Narwal escapes yet again!
Apparently, the Narwal was indeed aboard The Flying Elephant upon leaving Triton's Tavern in May. But, midway he boarded the Balclutha bound for another desitination.
The destination unknown to the captain and crew of The Flying Elephant. Well, save for one. A crew member who disembarked from The Flying Elephant a couple days ago and was bound for Esme's Cove.
Hence, the current location of the Rusty Dagger in the sixth of the seven seas - the Persian Gulf.
Which begs the question again, who is this rascal Narwal who seems to dodge our captain's clutches?
Meanwhile the Rusty Dagger and loyal crew are anchored offshore from the island to await the return of our captain.
To escape the heat and enjoy the free time, some crew members dive into the water and discover the wonders of the many coral reefs below.
The Persian Gulf, in Southwest Asia, is an extension of the Indian Ocean located between Iran (formerly called Persia) and the Arabian Peninsula.
The Persian Gulf has many good fishing grounds, extensive coral reefs, and abundant pearl oysters...-per wikipedia
