Destination
 

  • Tansui's face betrays nothing as he looks you up and down.

You wish to pay the Ruby Tithe, yes? With your...gil, perhaps? It is just as well. Foreign currencies are in demand these days.

I would pay for their passage to Othard.


Does this sum meet with your satisfaction?
...The sea has been quite tempestuous of late. I cannot say with confidence that you would reach your destination safely─unless you tripled it.
D-Do you take me for a fool? I know the price, as do all!

Alas, we live in interesting times. As you came from Kugane, I should think I need not tell you that.


The shadow of war looms. The wise and the cautious shirk our waters and our custom, and the foolhardy sharpen their knives in anticipation.
Meaning...?

Sir! Sir! You've got to come quickly. The bastards're at it again!


I tried to convince them to stop, but they weren't having it.

<sigh> Very well. I will be there shortly.


...Hm. A proposition. Your comrades strike me as a worthwhile investment. I would not hear men name me a cat before koban, so I shall consider their tithe paid─not for what they have done, but for what I expect they will do.
I'm not sure what to make of that man, but at least the matter of our tithe is settled. For now.
What was that he and the other pirate were talking about? Maybe we ought to go and have a look.
Quest Accepted
Ugh... My clothes have mostly dried, but they're a bit clingy. Still, no regrets!
I wonder─Lominsan pirates have been known to say things like, “Arrr,” but surely pirates on the opposite side of the world would use different expressions? “Errr,” or “Urrr,” or “Arururu,” perhaps?
Doma's position on the Confederacy could be best described as one of “guarded acceptance.” They pirates, aye, but they adhere to a code and are a stabilizing force in the Ruby Sea.
As he says, there is business to be discussed.

That's Tansui over there, isn't it?
Do you know what this is all about?
Hmm...I have been away for some time, so...
I...I am not certain this is a wise idea...

What are we waiting for? Come, come! Soroban cannot have gone far!


...Though now that I think on it, it is passing strange that he left without warning. Mayhap he did not wish to be seen by his Kojin brethren?


I doubt he thought to leave us behind, but nevertheless, it may be prudent to return to his ship. Or at least to the Confederate encampment.
Doma is but one of many provinces under imperial control, filled with people who have had to find ways to cope with a bitter reality...
So they really don't care what happens to Doma? I can't...I refuse to believe that.

Oh, my friends! A thousand pardons! ...As you may have guessed, I was reluctant to be seen in your company by my Red brothers. Ours is a...complex relationship.


I pray you do not misinterpret their actions as a reflection of our allegiances as a whole.


You...you understand? Kami be praised! Too often are shell-less quick to judge all Kojin for the deeds of one.


Right, then. Now that our business with Tansui is concluded, we can traverse the Ruby Sea without fear!
Quest Completed
Oh good, he's still here!
I am sure he has his reasons for his odd behavior...and I should like very much to hear them. Trust requires honesty.
Hah! I told you he would not abandon us!
