A salty old sailor stood at the top of the ramp supervising the work. His hair was unkempt, long, and wild. The dark hair was starting to turn gray at the roots, and he sported an equally wild beard. The man's ragged clothes matched the rest of his look.
"Hurry up you slugs!" The old sailor bellowed. "We don't have all day! Move it!"
As the adventurers neared the ramp, the old sailor spotted them, and recognition flashed over his face. "Oy! You must be the muscle the good Lord Byron has sent. Come aboard, come aboard." Turning his attention back to his men, he barked, "Out of the way you scallywags!"
"Welcome aboard the Wind's Will. Captain Levenbrech. We're bound for Allaria, so I hope you have your sea legs, for it'll be a long journey friends!" the captain said in a billowing laugh.
"This here is my first mate, Porse. And that up monkey up there is my second mate, Trig."
The second mate was halfway to the ship's mast, adjusting the rigging. The man looked young, as though he couldn't be more than 30. He gave an excited wave, nearing loosing his grip in the process.
"Watch yourself Trig! I've no use for broken bone sailors!" The captain scolded.
The first mate was middle aged, shaved bald, and covered with tattoos, many of which had grown distorted with sun and age. He bundled rope, scowling at the new arrivals. "They better not eat too much, Captain. Especially the big one," Porse said with a nod to Kane. "But I do like my woman small. As long as they keep their mouths shut."

"SmmmmmMMMMMMMFFFF....Haaaaaaahh, the smell of sea salt" Kruks states as he steps onto the boat. "Well met!" he salutes in dwaven fashion to the crew of the ship. "It's been a while since I've been on a ship" he says excitedly as he steps onto the ship, which is already rocking to-and-fro from the waves hitting the bottom of the ship. This proves too much for Kruk as his face turns slightly green. This is imediately follow by puke spewing form his mouth like a volcanic eruption onto the deck of the ship, as Kruk had no chance of making it to the ship railing in time, much to the dismay of the ship crew. After emptying the contents of his stomach, which consisted of the stew and ale, and continuing through a repeated bout of dry heaves, Kruk then turns to the rest of his comrades, with puke shrapple all over his beard, and says with a grin "Well comrades, now that that is over, I'm ready for the trip! And I thought I have a cast iron stomach! HA HAAAHHHA HHAAAA!"

Hergunna and Carolina....Kane come up with special friend name for you too. " the bugbear says as he nimbly jumps onto the ship, "You need help with rope Mr. No hair man?" Kane asks jovially to the first mate.

Wil steps dextrously onto the boat and looks about with a slight frown. Hmmm, I thought it would be "bigger". he mutters before beaming at the captain. Captain, a pleasure to be aboard. I am Wil Rando... and if the Wind's Will wills, Wil will travel well! The bard chuckles and tests his feet on the deck, seeming to be satisfied with the rocking motion.

Carolina steps aboard the ship with feigned disinterest, discreetly eyeballing the deck for any nooks or crannies that might offer benefit to one of her stature.
