The heroes have made it to Newport, fighting off three attacking pirate ships and nearly losing their lives in the process. In town, they have taken a much-needed rest; during this time Michael sold one of the captured pirate ships without his companions' knowledge and he & Talyn proceeded to paint the town red. Ki and Vio have caught up to them and taken them to task for their actions, forcing them to purchase new sails & supplies for the pirate ship the companions are keeping. After about a weeks' rest, a magnificent galleon lands in port; could it be the infamous pirate-king, in search of his missing ships?
