Evening, Pelargir

Timbers creak as the great black-sailed vessel rides at anchor, waiting on wind and tide. On deck, a grey-cloaked figure broods: How the devil came I, Halbarad Dunadan of the landlocked Angle, to be commanding a ship?

He sighs at the incongruity. Well for us that newly-freed mariner from Dol Amroth volunteered his services as master, lest we founder even ere we reach the Harlond! Yet, he admits as he fills a consoling pipe, he grudges not the charge laid on him by his Chieftain. He knows I would follow him to the far side of the world... And beyond.
