I was once First Mate on the Wave Mistress, ship-of-the-line in the Kul Tiras Third Fleet. The Doomed Fleet. Doomed, for on its last voyage the fleet was attacked by Red Dragons. Dragons controlled by Orcs!

...Oh, my head hammers and pounds! I'll need a fresh drink if I'm to get a handle on this hangover and continue my tale.
Oh, I'm so very thirsty! Won't you buy a drink for this poor, pathetic fool?
Ah! That hits the spot, and loosens the tongue. Thanks, mate!
