“That’s wee bit odd…” said the ship’s carpenter, who happened to be taking a turn at the wheel. He was feeling the influence of Rothgar the sea-bear on the rudder.

Stone grabbed the wheel and the two of them tried to turn it together until it shook them off in a dramatic shower of sparks. The deck lurched as if the ship was tumbling over the edge of a really cheap special effect. Then as quickly as it had formed around them the fog dissipated, and the ship was steady on a new course. The only sound was Donald Fago doing what he did best over the forward rail. Again.
