the smuggler’s bible

Marhaus

King Anguish just wants his money, and honestly there are only so many ways to get it. He sends his knight Marhaus out to crack some skulls and wring seven years of back taxes out of Cornwall.

Tintagil sure ain’t Ireland, but it isn’t nothing. Marhaus drops anchor and wagers every red scrap of treasure on the notion that he’s the baddest dude in town, then spends a long six weeks waiting for someone to take his dare.

When he finally comes home, there’s still a piece of the sword stuck in his brain. And my god how it gleams.
