Ambrose “Fishguts” Kroop's page

15 posts. Alias of brvheart.


Gonna need a dry dock as well. As for the money, Pluggs, the Queens and Scourge's weapons should more than pay for it. I for one do no relish being stuck here when Harleson comes a lookin'! Never hear noby paying 5000 gold fer squibin' no ship.
Besides, ain't nobody look in Plugg's Office? He's got plunder in there worth 2000 gold!

"Captain Barnabas Harrigan is not likely to let the slight against him pass" says Kroop "he will attempt to find us.
He paces back and forth a minute.
To throw him off the trail, I suggest we make for Rickety’s Squibs where we can refit the ship to change its appearance and its name.

"Fishguts fer captain!!! Yeah, everyone gets extra rum rations!!! Nah, Ize kin nevers be captain. Second Mate maybe."

Manny says to Fishguts. This Plugg is a stoopy head, how he ever get trusted by Harigan?

Manny gets a whooollleee lotta fish! He gets the best fish for his friends and fishhead for the rest.

"Plugg was here when Harrigan gots here. Hired on by the previous captain. He's got stuck with 'em. 'n we've got stuck wit 'im."

"No need to say bye m'lad cus I be joinin' ya. I be glad of gettin' off the Wormwood." He asks you and several other members helpful to start moving his stuff over.

Who are the other officers? Besides Scourge and Plugg

Fishguts thinks a minute, mulling over the answer:

"Well you know Cut-Throat Grok, the quarter master. Peppery Longfarthing, she's the sailing master and old friend of the captain, Riaris Krine, she's master gunner. Habbly Quarne, the “Stitchman”, he's ship’s surgeon and carpenter. Kipper is a bootlicker for Plugg and Scourge and gunner’s mate and Patch Patchsalt, she our female gnome rogue Boatswain’s mate and sycophant of Plugg and Scourge. She ain't no officer but there's also “Caulky” Tarroon the captain’s cabin girl."

"Barnabas Harrigan, a Free Captain of the Shackles who had long plagued Chelish merchant shipping in the Inner Sea and Arcadian Ocean. He is on deck every morning and every evening at bloody hour."

Manny starts to earn Fishguts' trust at this point and he starts to open up "“It’s poison, this ship, but don’t let anyone hear you say it aloud. The hull listens, see, and the cap’n hears it all. Poison the Wormwood is, though, rotten to the core. You’ll not meet a more nasty, sour piece of work than Cap’n Harrigan in all your days at sea, and his crew’s the same, ’specially the first mate, Mr. Plugg. Vicious little sod, he is. He’d take his own mother’s liver to the butcher to make pies with, he would. But they leave me alone, mostly. They know I can’t ’arm ’em.”"

"They all need favors, but I suggest starting with those that are not at least unfriendly to you to begin with. You might find more success."

Fishguts and Manny spend the day jarring and after this and the time already spent with him, he starts acting like a friend to Manny.

Uh-oh...I wonder if I can sub in rat or chicken. Manny tries to find some rats?

Be careful of what you speak Manny.

Manny!!! You are wanted on deck.

"Ya might try giving her some of this brandy she likes.

This will give a +4 bonus on all checks made to influence her.

"You might try talking with Cut-Throat Grok. She is the quartermaster on board."

Kroop's mates get a +2 to interact with Cut-Throat Grok. Grok is in charge of all provisions including the party's gear.

"First thing you need to do is catch supper." He hands you a couple of nets and a fishing pole.

Fishing: Catching tonight’s supper using the ship’s
nets. A DC 10 Profession (fisherman) or Survival
check provides enough fish. A failed check results
in a day in the bilges as punishment the following

"Ambrose Kroop's me name. Second mate on The Wormwood. I see you are my new assistant. Hope you know a thing"
Most of the crew just call him Fishguts
