Heading out into the open seas, the Storm Bull attempts to chase down a ship carrying valuable cargo who was spurned from Melderyn. Running a night, with lights, the Storm Bull passed several ships in the busy shipping lane. She had to open her hatches to noble inspection and turn down a not-so-lucrative deal on whale oil. After a couple of close calls in the dark, she tangles with the dread pirates of the Heavenly Arrow. Despite greek fire, poison powder and cowardly backstabbing dingys, the Storm Bull prevails and captures another ship. She chases down the spurned foreign mercantilers and makes a deal for weapons over rats.
