It was early morning as a ship loomed on horizon. Unlike the sleepy atmosphere that surrounds it, the vessel was very active and busy.Every crewman was busy with their tasks on sailing and maintaining the vessel. As the crew continues to work a figure exits the Captain's quarters. A crewman notices the figure and gives him a quick nod."Mornin' Capt'," The Crewman says. "and how ar' you this fine mornin'?" The Captain grins as he tilts back his hat revealing the ferret's youthful face grining. "Aye Fernir, I am doing quite fine actually." The Captain say to Fernir. "and what of you?" Fernir seems to glance towards the coast they have been sailing before responding. " Well Ezikeil," Fernir responds to the captain. "The crew seems to be slightly confused about the purchase you made last time we was at port. They feel like this "weapons" you had outfitted the ship seem to be a waste and take to much space, they tend to say that this was a major waste and your father wouldn't have approved." The rat winced as he knew mentioning the ferret's father tend to bother the captain greatly but this time Ezikeil did not seemed to be bothered by this response but merely chuckled. "Well Fernir that is why i decided to take us along this coast here." Fenir gave the captain a rather puzzled look as the captain glared at him upon noticing His confused expression. "Fernir you can't be serious," Ezikeil says in a annoyed tone. " We sailed here so i can demonstrate the power our new weapons have and how effective they can be! Haven't you noticed the only thing on that coast is that mountain and the forest? We are nowhere near a town so we wont have to worry about having to deal any issues." Ezikeil sighed as he could tell Fernir wasn't fully grasping the concept he tried to explain and eventually gave up trying to explain his motives. "Fernir, just get the crew…." Ezikeil watched as Fernir gave him a salute and left to gather the crew for the demonstration. The captain leaned against one of these new weapons and waited for his crew to assemble. After a short time the crew was finally gathered and the young ferret was finally surrounded by his crew. Ezikeil looked around as he made sure everyone was paying attention before he spoke. "Well lad's I have heard the mumbles about what you think about our knew...."toy" if i may." The crew began to gave each other confused looks wondering exactly what is their captain trying to get across. Ezikeil saw this and raised his paw to draw the crew's attention before he continues. "Well then allow me to explain." The captain jumps down to the deck and gestures the object next to him. " This here is called a cannon, now the cannon can fire these large metal balls at a large distance with can deal heavy damage to our enemy." At this point the crew was muttering to each other trying to understand.
"What is the captain rambling about? There is no way such a weapon exists!"
"Fires these metals balls?? Wow..."
"What is the point of this? We don't know how to use such a weapon, what a waste of gold."
Ezikeil once again calls the crowd's attention before thing get out of hand and countinues. "That is why we have sailed to this coast. We are going to have a demonstration of what these weapons can do. Once My First mate is done explaining how to load and fire a cannon we will fire onto the mountain and coast nearby so you can see the damage they can cause." Ezikeil then nods to his first mate. "Go ahead and begin teaching the crew, once you think they are ready to fire them come and let me know." Ezikeil then retreats back to his quarters to review the the papers the explain the specifications of his purchase in silence.
(Note: that mountain is in fact Salamastradon by the way so know you know what they plan to shoot at. The crew just has no idea......let see how quickly this will escalate!)
