Chapter I: King's ArmEdit

A man in a fancy uniform walking down the Sandy beach of Tortuga and hears a noise outside, he turned around and didn't see anything, nothing but an ocean and a shipwreck. He walked in the bar called "King's Arm". He walks in and sees a bartender as he leans on the counter asking for a drink. The bartender offered him a drink and said "What brings you here to Tortuga, Mister? ....", "Ishmael.. Ishmael Venables" the person said. The bartender handed him a Rum to drink, Ishmael paid him with some coins and he take a sip of it. He answered back to the bartender saying "Is there a room I could rent?". The bartender nodded and said "That will be 5 shillings". Ishmael slid out couple of shillings and handed the bartender some. The bartender replied "Upstairs and one turn to the left." Ishmael thanked him for the room, as he begins to walk upstairs to his room. He slowly turned the door knob and entered the room. The room was quite small, and the bed was near the corner with a mirror. The reflective surface would do good for Ishmael. He sat down on the bed and said "This will do, I'll stay here for couple of days until I find some information about the EITC's whereabouts." He slowly blew out the candle and drifted into a deep sleep.

Chapter II: A DebtEdit

It was a sunny morning in the King's Arm Tavern when Ishmael got up from his bed and look into the mirror and said "Hmm... I should shave now". He look through the shelf as he grab the cream and the razor, He placed some cream on his face while he got the water ready for himself. Before he could shave a loud crash downstairs as the Bartender was yelling at somebody. Ishmael suggested that he should check what was going on downstairs, he grabbed a towel and wash his face off then place the towel on the bed. Ishmael took some few steps down and look at two henchman which he doesn't know. They were wearing some type of a uniform and they had swords in their hand, threatening the bartender and his wife. A henchman turned around and looked at Ishmael before he did anything to them and said "Who the hell are you?", "I'm just one of the good guy" Ishmael replies. The other henchman let go of the bartender's wife and stood by the second henchman saying "Listen Pal...You have no idea who you are messing with". The henchman drew their swords and pistols in hand while Ishmael cracked his knuckles and said "Yeah I do". The first henchman laughed as Ishamel delivered a single blow to his throat, instantly knocking him unconscious whilst with his free hand, he grabbed the barrel of the other man's pistol in hand and flung it across the room. Ishmael unsheathing his sword half way only to strike the head of the second henchman with it's jewel encrusted hilt. Ishamel then threw the bartender a shilling and apologised for the mess. The bartender grinned and spat out;"If I was young, I would have been the chap giving those bastards what for! I thank ye kindly. for Ishmael nod and ask "Why were those mens hurting you?", "Oh! Maybe perhaps it's just money they are after!" Bartender's Wife said.
