Magnus accompanies Kessel on to the vessel. But wisely allows the bard to to do the talking. (MAgnus is egotistical enough to think he can trade verbal jousts with the bard, but realistic enough to admit Kessel is much better at negotiations than he is!) Magnus stands behind Kessel, thumbs tucked into his belt, looking about the craft as Kessel speaks.

LOL! Magnus preens a little, trying to catch a glimpse of himself in the reflection of the water below,...

[dice=knowledge local]1d20+4"My name is Kessel Cobey," Kessel says as he steps forward, "And we've heard from the harbor master that you're sailing Terra Incognita, and this where we need to go. However I also understand the voyage and location can be dangerous, and thus ships traveling there usually hire a little extra protection, more to the point, we are what some call adventures, problem solvers, swords . . . for hire, though I do detest that last one, but we are more then capable of protecting this ship and it's cargo for the journey to Threepenny Port, afterwards, perhaps the journey back, depending on the success or failure of our business there."

"You look like a likely bunch. Explorers eh? We can give you passage and steerage bunks if you help us in case of attack and help with common seaman's chores"
"Well I can't speak for my companions but it does sound agreeable, however I will point out that we are a somewhat diverse and talented bunch, and common seamen's chores might be a waste of talent. I'm unsure if you have Bards in the Blue Hills, but we are a multi talented lot, and are far beyond simple entertainers. However I shall take your offer to my companions and very quickly give you a reply.
"Oh," Kessel asks, as if only just remembering, "When do you sail? I only ask because there's another ship leaving shortly as well."
