In return the captain promised to put in a good word with the trade house.

The Scarlet Order of Aeluna - The crew has earned a possible boon from the Order by assisting Red Sister Carmen Neem. The Sister needed to quickly resupply her ship (the Bysantiam) with water when their supply was poisoned. She made a request to take the doctor of the Debtless with her to heal several women who had been poisoned but Alenka declined. A counteroffer was given to allow those in need of healing to be brought aboard the Debtless. Mission success and payment is contingent on getting the women back to Darilach, Halim'Ra alive.

Notable Non-Playable Characters

Aeluna Scarlett 'Saite' - Aeluna is the head of the Scarlet Order, a wildly successful trade organization that in the last 10 years turned the tables of power within the Isles. Aeluna tries her best to make her followers happy, even if her methods are somewhat questionable ('Forced' being the sentiments who don't care for the Order). Aeluna is fiercely protective of those in her employ, often to the extent of keeping a psychic tie to her captains in order to enhance their skills so that they can make it home safely. Her role as villain or ally of our Heroes lies solely in their actions as the years progress.

Johan 'Jon' Parish - Local inventor on the Island, Parish is the wealthy friend of our Heroes. He trusts them, and has employed them in the past to perform tasks that he is unable to go on himself. He has some magical ability but does not readily display those skills. Jon opens this story by throwing a Masquerade Ball and inviting our Heroes.

Marissa Cand - First Mate on board the Debtless. Marissa has been sailing since she was a young girl. Her father trained her during her early years, and she was able to rig a ship when she was 7. She has some skill in tailoring and sail repair, and keeps a spark of magic up her sleeves to keep people in line. She has served as Second in Command under Gavin, but is not the biggest fan of laying down punishments as Quartermaster (a title she would give up if presented with the opportunity). She is very loyal to Gavin and has been sailing alongside him long before he ever earned his Captain's Blade.

Important Objects

The Barracuda - The group's second vessel, owned and operated by Captain Gavin Endili. The Barracuda was purchased as a replacement for The Debtless and has proven to be a safe but small sailing ship for the party's operations.

The Debtless - The group's first ship, owned and operated by Captain Gavin Endili. The Debtless was put to rest outside of Darigard after taking damage. The captain determined a new vessel would be the best choice.

The Mavrick - The first enemy vessel that the crew succeeded in capturing after it pursued them in a failed attempt to capture Jon Parish. The Mavrick was returned to House Xemnon by Captain Endili.
