Sailor's Solace is a ship shop in Kraken's Fall. Located in a sprawling structure on Siphon Street in Kraken's Fall, this is where you can customize your ship's captain's quarters.

[Sailor's Solace]
Light and dark-stained bookcases line the western edge of the large shop, their various shelves housing a variety of nautical instrumentation, while the eastern wall is filled with several plush bunks that are adorned with heavy velvet drapes. A gold and crimson knotwork carpet stretches across the floor, providing a colorful backdrop to the various chairs and tables on display. Discretely placed to one side, a small counter has a ledger, an ink vial, and a quill resting upon its leather-bound ink blotter. You also see a wooden plank sign and a captain merchant.


The captain merchant nods at you before saying, "You should try asking about something I know more about, like CHAIR, TABLE, BED, WALL, STYLE, MAP, or TRASH."


  Captain's Room Styles

  1: Sun/moonlight filters through a large, glass-paned window, illuminating [MAP] spread out on [TABLE] in the center of the cabin. A logbook lies open on [BED] near [CHAIR] piled with freshly laundered garments. Nautical charts are tacked to the [MATERIAL]-paneled walls, all scribbled with illegible handwriting, one drawn with a giant sea monster.

  2: Wrought iron lanterns sway overhead, the dancing flames casting light on [CHAIR] positioned behind [DESK] laden with charts, logbooks, and [MAP]. [BED] is made up beneath an expansive window, the view interrupted by a scaffolding equipped with water-filled buckets to clean the glass panes. An elaborate astrolabe hangs on the [MATERIAL]-paneled wall near the door.

  3: Freshly made with clean linens, [BED] stretches out beneath a clear glass-paned window at the rear of the cabin. A lantern flickers atop [TABLE] stacked with books, empty teacups, and nautical charts. [MAP] is framed upon a [MATERIAL]-paneled wall above [CHAIR], its seat occupied by a three-legged tabby cat.

  4: Luxuriously appointed with plush carpets over a polished floor, the cabin is well-lit by gilded brass sconces set with beeswax candles. The curtains are drawn back from an expansive, glaes-paned window, allowing the sunlight/moonlight to spill across [BED] and onto [TABLE] and [CHAIR] nearby. [MAP] is stuck to a [MATERIAL]-paneled wall by a dagger driven in almost to the hilt.

  5: At the head of [TABLE] strewn with sea charts, [CHAIR] is afforded an uninterrupted view out of a glaes-paned window spanning the width of the stern to the seas beyond. [MAP] and a stack of logbooks lie on the freshly swept planks at the foot of [BED]. Pushed up against a [MATERIAL]-paneled wall, a driftwood trunk packed with clothing and books sits open next to an ornate ivory and gold music stand.

  6: [MAP] hangs above [BED] situated near a window that runs the breadth of the stern, the view of the sea beyond superior to any painting hanging on the [MATERIAL]-paneled walls of this well appointed cabin. The nautical charts strewn across [TABLE] tell the ships history at sea, while the details are all recorded in the log books stacked on [CHAIR]. A large sea chest occupies one corner, a lock securing its contents inside.

A long duster enshrouds Rhys's dimunitive body.  A long, jagged scar runs down from his hairline to the center of his cheek.  His cold, blue eyes glance warily around the room.
