"Not interested, thanks." The girl replies to Guybrush, before turning to the gun-based woman.
"... Crazy group? You aren't talking about the, uh..."
The panicked man, now a bit calmer, responds. "The Funnybones."
"... Oh yeah, I'm one a' those. Anyone see the bartender?"
Maybe. Otherwise, I'm not sure where I found this shot glass...
Duane looks at the shot glass he is inside of.
Mighty confusing this life thing is.
Pirates, huh? Maybe they can help himÖ despiteÖ not having the absolute best of reputationsÖ but, they usually have ships, so that should do. Is the lady who came in a pirate? She doesnít seem that bad. At least not yetÖ

The young woman takes a sip of her drink and pulls her oversized hood over her head. This wasn't the first time someone had mistook her for a teenager, but considering how petite and how young she sounded, she shouldn't have been surprised.
But no matter, she needed a purpose in life. Why not go sailing on the high seas?
The girl backs away from the door.. Though when that woman finally comes through, she wonders if she really had any reason to.
A little louder this time, she asks, "Um, if anyone could help me sail away from here.. That would be nice.."
"I can come. Always wanted to sail myself."
(At first, the coral snake seems visibly confused by the appearance of this plain-looking woman who was built up to be this ridiculously dangerous pirate, but once she confirms that she is a member of a crew, he looks a bit more confident and approaches her.)
So you *are* a member of those Funnybones pirates? (He asks, looking up at her.) That guy's not just nuts? Great! Are you looking for new crew members? 'Cause I'm looking for one to join one...
Welp, you get a Glock to the face. "Unless you intend on a contract, I suggest you get out if you value your life." Trigger happy, much?
The woman hears the concerns of the quiet girl and the coral snake. "Well, not really my area of expertise, I'm just the-"
Once she has a gun to her head, she just gets angry. "I'm JUST THE ERRAND GIRL!" She sighs. "Besides, are you seriously gonna shoot me for wanting a few drinks?"
Duane shouts out, Hey, just leave 'er alone why doncha? She hasn't misdone anybody!
The boy looks around at all the people in the bar. None of them seem like they can helpÖ Whoís he supposed to talk to? Thereís another person around, seems around the same age as himÖ buuut, heís not sure if she can help. Is there a bartender around? He starts to look for one.
A treasure chest is brought into the room by a small group of pirates, sopping wet and covered in seaweed. Not much can can be seen of the chest through the seaweed, but it's wrapped in black chains, the ending of one of the chains being that of a cannonball.
The leader of the group then motions to his crew to set the chest down.
Pirate Captain: "Set it down here boys, then clean the chest up so I can open it. That thing's been down there for a long time and I can't wait to see what the sea has hidden from me."
For those wondering, the group of pirates are just NP Cs. The chest is the character.

Uh, sir, whatcha got there? Duane asks
The girl looks past the gun lady, looking at the pirates. "Well there's some weirdos, why don't you just shoot them?"
She slowly, slowly, eases her Glock off. "You're off the hook...for now."
She looks at the treasure chest the pirate group brought in. "Could someone look after this one? Had a bad experience with some loot a while back...turned out to be a booby trap. Some people do that."

Ah, to hell with it, why not?
And in to the bar walks a surprisingly plain man. Average build, height, weight, I won't bore you with the rest excepting for that he's wearing a surprisingly clean jerkin for the business of pirating. This man's name is Tom, and he is looking for work.
"Anyone looking for a sailor to take on board? I could use the coin."
"Think you've come in at a bit of a tight time, amigo."
Booby trapped treasure chests? (The snake looks closely at the one the other pirates just brought in.) Are you saying this is one?
"Ah'm over here, lass," the bartender calls over to the ginger-haired woman. The bartender turns out to be a cute little bunny... who is holding a pistol.
"I dunnae who yer "Funnybones" kin are, but tell them pirates they better nae cause any trooble in my bar. N' that goes for the overgrown rodent an' ye lads wid the freaky treasure chest too!"
"Not pirate work. I want to be an ex-pirate. I can't go back out there with people like that again."
"But who are these 'Funnybones' anyhow?"

Right right right! Iíd forgotten!
"Awesome! Can you prepare, like... 20 things of beer? Put it under Jane." She replies to the bartender, before looking to the bearded man.
"Eh, just some guys looking for treasure, I guess. I'm not really involved with them, but right now we're looking for a piece of... What was it? The Legendary Egg?"
Melvin looks up.
"The Legendary Egg? I thought that was just a... legend."
(The coral snake, (apparently) easily distracted, perks up at the mention and heads back toward the others.) Ooh, what's the Legendary Egg?
"It is a legend, but Max won't take that. Says he can feel it in his bones." The woman, possibly called Jane, takes a seat and kicks her feet up on the table. "If you ask me, he may as well be looking for Santa Claus, or Bigfoot."
She turns to the snake, shrugging. "It's like, some egg? It was supposedly shattered years ago, but they say whoever gathers its fragments and puts it back together again gets to have any wish they want granted." She sighs. "It's all baloney."
"It's a magical artifact that I used to hear about in rhymes and stories. It grants the user wishes. Supposedly, a great pirate named Captain Pollock discovered it on one of his travels. He used it to settle down, create and provide riches for everyone he came across, even the poor. But as he got older, he began to fear what might happen if it were to fall into the hands of someone less generous."
"So Captain Pollock left his home and friends behind and dedicated the rest of his life to travelling around the world, taking the Legendary Egg apart and spreading its pieces across as many islands as he could get to. According to legend, he successfully planted 5 pieces on unknown islands, and had just one left, but then he was never heard from again."
