After several more days at sea, our vessels put into the port of Corentyn just to the east of the Arch of Aroden. While I typically do not comment on the more philosophical aspects of life, this monument to the prowess of the gods is certainly profound. The arch spans out of site, and if I am told correctly by Kahaterina, it has a magical wall of force that can in times of need encompass the entire structure to prevent a naval incursion.
We were in port for a day, and I managed to get Worg to go get an ale after he had his crew unload and load both the Firetreader and Water Weird. I spoke with him at length about speaking with the captain about getting me a more ample share of the booty from the sale of the captured rowing vessel. After a while, Worg was amenable to that and ended up speaking with the captain the next day. Captain Valrienos was apparently not convinced however. I informed Worg that having a loyal, dedicated, and very skilled archer to assist him if needed was worth more than the greed of the captain. I think Worg and I have an understanding that will likely present itself in conversations through the politics of the ships.
I also attempted to gather information on Captain Valrienos while in Corentyn, but to no avail. I will see about getting information in our next port of call. The next couple of days went uneventfully. I relaxed, and resumed my evaluation of the crew and my fellow hires.
