People on the docks move up to pat you on your back and celebrate your exploits, while the guards who appear start hacking the huge creature to pieces for fish food. Captain Esteban and Faruq stand on the River Queen and they applaud your efforts, as you approach. The boat has a draft of only 3 feet, a 77-foot keel, and a 20-foot beam. You see three workers loading supplies and crates onto the boat. The Captain smiles, "Looks I've picked the best adventurers around. Dispatched that huge beast in seconds. Mighty impressive. Let me introduce you to the crew of the River Queen, who will be accompanying us on this journey." He points to Faruq, whom you already know and then to a misshapen dwarf with gray stubble for a beard, who is hunched over, reviewing the contents of some crates. "That there is Hurg, our engineer and caretaker of the Protean engine that powers my ship." You see many scars on the dwarf's bald head and he grunts hello at you all. The Captain continues, "And finally, those three strong grunts there are Danner, Houghman, and Speraggo. They do most of the heavy lifting around here. So come aboard and we will take off, as soon as the supplies are loaded."
If you need to do anything before leaving port, do it now.
