Absolutely awesome!
Got stuck on Hassan, but everything was totally impressive.  Your narrator is thoroughly talented.

Hassan can't quit you, either....


oh....

You meant something else I think.

And you know, he happens to have a business to run! Guy can't take off with every dandy in a hat with some slammin' pecks for free!

Clearly you are biased!  :P ;)


oww! talking about Hassan, why is he talking about 'crew' and 'guys' when he only has one person working for him on the boat? Crew can work, but guys implies there are more then one working for him, but at Isle of the Mist when they all leave the boat he has only one with him *ponders*

Really enjoying this game. Never played the original games (though I have heard a great many thigns about them), and the first episode has a timeless and special feel to it :D
Gratz on the awesome work!

That is a great question.

I believe that the economic times have hit Hassan much harder than even he himself would admit. He had to let go of most of his crew, except of course his beloved Frederick.

Did you know Hassan found Frederick by the dock one day while cleaning barnackles off of his boat? Yeah. He found him in a clamshell bassinet with a note pinned to his chest:

"Take care of my boy, his name is Frederick. We will return for him in time and you will know us because we will be carrying half of a seasweed and squid ink locket that will be the perfect mate for the one around the boy's neck."

So Hassan raised him as his own.

So he couldn't fire him. When he is referring to "the guys" I believe he is referring to all that remains of his crew, which is himself, Frederick, Cookie (their galley chief) and Swarthy McStab, their enforcer.

Cookie and Swarthy were sleeping off a bit of the drink in the cabin near the dock and didn't make the voyage because in keeping costs down, Hassan only went with himself and loyal Frederick.

Which is a shame. Swarthy McStab comes in REALLY handy in a fight and Cookie makes a mean Squid Pie.

Actually, there's a much darker reason why Hassan only has one crewman visible... He locked the rest up in the brig...
