Sialillion looks grave as the map is pulled out and the options are weighed. As the others speak, her crow swoops down and perches on the highest point on the ship, looking all around warily. Eventually once everyone has said their piece, Sia speaks up as well.
"As much as we all need the rest, I believe going by boat would be suicide. None of us, besides Louissa, can pilot this boat. And I mean no offense, Lady Louissa, when I say that you lack experience handling a boat on choppy waters so far from home. On top of that, the coasts are raided by the Splugorth regularly. Though nothing would make me happier than to slay one of those barge creatures and its damnable warrior women, in our current state I believe they would have no trouble capturing us. Then we would be sent to Atlantis and, believe me, it's somewhere you and I don't want to go." Sialillion shuts her eyes tight and shudders for a moment, as though reliving a painful memory. She looks down at her feet, and seems to hesitate and consider her words for a moment before continuing.
"I... I spent half my life escaping from Atlantis." She raises the sleeve of her cloak, revealing the black tentacular tattoos that run along her entire body. She keeps a heavy stare aimed at her arm, and runs a nail along one of the thicker tentacles as she speaks, her face somewhere between sorrow and anger. "I was born a slave in their mines, and one by one I watched everyone I ever loved be murdered by those sick beings and their minions. I would sooner die than go back. Believe me when I say that if they captured us, our adventure would be over. They have no mercy, especially not for humans or Kindred. We could be sold for meat, enslaved, or worse. And that's if something even worse doesn't happen upon us while at sea."
"My vote is that we abandon this boat, find medical help for Osiris here at Fort Peters, then try to commandeer a car or some swift horses. Either way we should rest here overnight'"
OOC: Hey guys, I'm back from Burning Man. It was a great time, can't wait for next year! Oh, and both IRL and IC, my vote goes for the overland route, if only because Sialillion doesn't have the Swimming skill! Oops. :-P
