Looking at the map, he grunted while a cigar burned furiously in his mouth. Black smoke curled up around his top hat, as the shifting and rocking motions of the ship continued.
"So then, wha' are we's lookin' fer here?" Sals asked as a forsaken woman approached.
"We have heard of Mogu artifacts that can harness dark magics and warp flesh. Our bet is if we search for more dig sites, we'll find something useful." Her voice was slightly meek, unsure of herself. But Wollustig was talented and capable.
Just then an elven woman approached the table, a hand gripping her sheathed blade. She saluted Sals, then dropped a satchel down on the map.
"Trade Baron, we found a score of gem deposits in Kun-lai that we could exploit for profit. I can have several crews on it by the end of the day." Came her slightly mocking tone, always playfully.
"Ah, fine, Shay. Just make sure we's git ta it before any Alliance crews do. I hear tha' Explorer's League has arrived. We need ta best em at their game." Sals scowled at the map and satchel, concern marring his face.
"Perhaps you should be more concerned about your Bruisers. None of them are skilled for war, Trade Baron." The sounds of grumbling came from an orc staring out to sea, one foot resting on the railing.
The orc was scarred, and wore one of those Pandaren wide-brimmed cone hats. Turning to address the trio, he moved to the table in a few rough steps. He glared at Sals and the other two, while Shay glared back and Wollustig looked down.
"We need to train those grunts of yours to be batt-"
"Shut it, Krogg. I know what my crew is capable o'. I hir'd youse ta help train em, not belittle my cartel. Don' forgit, so long as youse work fer me, I's own youse."
Krogg spit on the ground, grunted and moved back to watching the Horde ships. Sighing, Sals returned to the map, as another goblin stepped out from inside the ship. Wearing a nice suit made from blackened leather, he gave the two women a large grin.
"Now, now, let's not pay attention to any grumblin', Boss. Krogg knows what he's doing. Besides, I have the intel on the Alliance outposts liked you asked." The goblin dropped a selection of files onto the table, adding to the mess.
Sals sighed, but grinned at the goblin. "Ah, thanks Sorzix. We's need ta do more recon on it though. I heard tha' Reliquary is diggin' in Ogudei, some sort o' ruins. But so are tha' Alliance."
"On it boss." Sorzix grinned, and gave a small salute.
The sounds of battle exploded in the distance, as other ships began moving into position to engage. Sals sighed, gripped his hat, and ordered the ship to take the long and quiet way around.
