    The mist is slow to clear as the ship slides through the sea, and it seems that even this far out the sun's rays have little warmth to give. The sound of creaking wood and the muffled splash of water is broken by the occasional comment from a sailor, but as Art said, this does not appear to be a difficult route, and the crew seems in no particular hurry as they carry out their tasks. The gnomes haven't quite gotten tired of glaring at the winged kobold yet, but he seems to have grown bored with them and is watching the sailors work instead. One particularly noisy gull harasses the lookout for a short while - perhaps it fell asleep while the ship was in harbour - but is soon driven off in the general direction of land.

    As you speak with the others, however, you are suddenly aware of a vague winged shape, perhaps the size of a cat, in the mist off to the side of the ship and a little behind. You're not quite sure how long it has been there; you don't have any memory of it coming into view. At the moment, it appears to be keeping pace with the ship, making no move to approach closer.

    The mist is too thick and the creature too far off to get a good look at it, but you do note that its behaviour does not match your ideas of what any birds found this far out to sea would do.

    After a few moments of staring at the mist, Wildgeist says just loud enough for Art to hear him without taking his sight from the rear-side part of the mist:

    "Art, little lad. By any chance you happen to have a spyglass? If you lend it to me just a few seconds I'll give you 1 gold piece. "

    Art's voice comes down from the rail of the sterncastle above you, sounding mildly indignant. "'Lad?' I know it's kind of hard to see out here, but is it really that hard to tell?"

    "I could tell right away," replies the solemn voice of the sailor from before, apparently still somewhere further above.

    With a sigh, Art jumps down, landing beside you. "To answer the question, no, I haven't got a spyglass. What's out here to look at?"

    Discreetly Wildgeist says while keeping his sight in the vague figure:

    "You see lad, over there in the mist, there's a little flying shape and I don't recognize what it is. Also I find rare and kind of disturbing that it has been flying keeping it's pace and distance from the boat. I just wanted to take a better look on it before I lost it from sight."

    The figure seemingly takes note of Wildgeist's waving, as the shape vanishes downward and there is a small splash. Half a minute passes silently, and then the calm is disturbed by a second splash directly below you. A white-scaled creature jumps upward, flapping frantically to control its rapid ascent, before finally perching on the rail next to you. Cat-like in its movement once it steadies itself, its shape is nonetheless somewhat reptilian, and it chirps out a few words in a language none of you recognize with a rather grandiose flare of its wings.

    Did it just say something? So clearly this is more than just a common beast. Perhaps the gnomes or that kobold can speak to it? Henri's fingers still drum on the shaft of his flail, but he does not draw it in case the creature would regard that as a hostile action.

    In the moment the creature perches beside Wildgeist, he takes a slow and small step backward trying not to scare the creature.

    Just after the creature finishes uttering the unrecognizable words, Wildgeist takes out one parchment sheet and a chalk piece from the case in his backpack and proceeds to write all the "sound" syllables he has just heard from the creature, even he didn't understand, as fast as he can.

    Finally he takes a friendly stance and takes a little step forward to the creature to determine if it's friendly or not.

    "Huh. It does look sorta like they might be related. Oi, Tzark! This a friend of yours?"

    "Not likely," comes the reply, but the winged kobold makes his way over regardless. The creature leans in toward him, tilting its head and opening its eyes wide, before chirping out a rapid series of words. Tzark replies in the same language, and the creature spreads its wings again, almost as if striking a pose, and gives a distinctly arrogant sounding reply, tilting its head toward Wildgeist.

    "Hm, interesting. Apparently this wyrmling serves someone named Keryllin, and expects us to give it a token of tribute." He looks at Wildgeist. "Whatever you were doing, it seems to have interpreted it as a gesture of submission, but that seems to have inflated its ego, since it now says the ship will be 'lucky' if we comply." He appears to be holding back laughter, if only out of a desire not to antagonize the wyrmling.

    Henri's eyes narrow as he looks on the creature with fresh annoyance. I'm torn. I don't like being threatened, but this Keryllin might be stronger than the craft on which we travel, and I don't relish the prospect of swimming to Seurd. Captain, do you have anything to help repel beasts that might attack this vessel?

    "Captain's still in his cabin," replies Art. "But if anything or anyone shows up to bother us, we just beat it about the head 'till it goes away. Nothing special."

    Tzark relays your question to the wyrmling, which replies, seeming quite pleased with itself. "Translated from its rather poor Draconic, I believe it's asking for a gem or a bit of jewellery."

    Jewels and gems? I'm not impressed. Or convinced that this Keryllin even exists. In any case, unless one of you has such an item, we have nothing to offer it. Art, since the captain isn't available right now, I leave the decision to you: if the beast is unwilling to let us go should we decide not to give in to its demands, do you give myself and the others the go-ahead to engage this would-be extiorionist?

    Art grins. "Heh, if it thinks attacking us is a good idea, I'll be helping you teach it a lesson, not stopping you."

    "A good question, now that you ask." Tzark asks the wyrmling, which is now sitting with the sort of natural arrogance usually only seen in cats. "A little evasive on who or what Keryllin is, but apparently she is soon to become ruler of the north. Might explain this little one's sense of self-importance, if it believes that." He rummages in his belt pouches. "I've probably got a trinket I could part with around here somewhere, if no one has any objections."

    Henri shrugs. It's your money, Tzark. If you wish to give up something to this creature, that certainly resolves the situation.
