    Viktoria trains, she pilots, she chats with the red-haired woman (if she is willing), and she sleeps. She relieves Gnool frequently so that he can socialize with the others, especially at meal time - she senses how important this new comraderie is to her friend.

    At some point, Babochka notes the routine Xavier has. And she catches him on the second morning, holding out a pair of improvised training weapons: long shafts of wood, with wrapped cloth tied about them. Asking him to demonstrate his swordplay in a spar with her on the deck, if he's willing. A training partner is always better than a solo performance.

    Xavier is more than happy to teach and spar. The random decisions and beginner's luck of a new training partner are great things to practice against.

    Gnool realizes on the second day why he does indeed enjoy the company of these newcomers more than he'd expected to: not one of them seems to give a damn that he's a dog-faced abomination of nature, more often shunned and spurned than welcomed. Indeed, they treat him not only as an equal, but also with respect! He hasn't had anyone treat him that way, other than Viktoria and Brother Thorred, in far longer than he'd care to admit.

    "Unnngh...", Jason bites his lip hard after the first explosion, "Ugghhh, oh gods...", he says after the second, "Aghhhh, it hurts so good...", he shakes after the third one. (30 damage to Jason, 32 to Trouser)

    "Give me a few minutes and we can continue." (Trouser heals completely after 3 minutes and 12 seconds) Jason casts a spell and touches himself, making all of his wounds close.

    Gnool jerks a thumb at the rope leading to nowhere and says to anyone around him who'll listen, "You know what the hells they're doin' up there?"

    The good doctor has been spending some time up on he 'control bridge' of sorts, learning about the operation of the ship.

    "No idea, herr Gnool. Fear not zough, if zey do any damage, frau Ilsa und I can fix it right up."

    He strokes his beak, thinking for a moment, then says:

    "On zat note, herr Gnool. I haff been thinking. Ve haff so few amenities und armaments here on zis barge, und it vill not go vell for us if ve are attacked. Just look, nozink to hide behind on the edges of the barge, no ranged veapons or siege engines at ze ready. Und I checked ze store rooms, very few magic items und ze sort to use in case of emergencies. Now, I can make many of zese for you, but I vill need funds. Who do I talk to about setting up a money pool for building zese zings for ze group?"

    Babochka has a look of distaste. She's actually been listening, and she clarifies to Gnool, "He is indulging in his love of pain, and she is indulging in her desire to hurt someone."
