Characters find themselves on the ship Seahawk on a voyage from Ceryl to New Larkholm where they are going to find a base of operations to start their mercenary charter. They have negotiated cheaper passage in return for protection, because there is a lot of pirate activity in the White Bay lately.
During the night a freak storm appears and the Seahawk is rammed by a Blackship. Their ship is entered by a bunch of Satyxis and 2 black ogruns.
After quite a fight they manage to kill all the pirates and save the lives of all the passengers and most of the crew.
