"Heh, nope, can't see through it. As expected.
Did that feel funny at all, Ingret?"

"Ok good."
> ALRIGHT. Time to go spy on a boat. Back to the docks region, find somewhere nice to sit while I poke around. A cafe if we can.

Your team takes another taxi to return to the docks.

~

Finding a nearby cafe within sight of the Rose, you take a seat at a table with your team.

Looking towards the ship, you send your view out on to its deck, and a flood of information fills your vision.


The wooden floorboards, rails, mast, sail, rope, door -

Focusing on the door, your scope narrows and the stream of information lessens.

Jump by jump, you get through the door and into the corridors of the inside of the ship, scouring it bit by bit for useful information.


Empty barrels and crates, a lot of emptiness in general.

Captain's quarters, with navigational instruments like compasses and drawing aids, but no maps. Inside the same room, a hidden trapdoor, leading to a compartment holding a single large object - a ship's nameplate, Marigold.

"Anticlimactic... we were correct. Marigold name plate in the hold, no maps on the ship, no real supplies... it's a hollow shell of a cargo ship."

"There's... Very little, in there. Though. You were right, Oliver - There's an extra nameplate, the Rose is the Marigold after all.

I'm starting to think the ship is just a red herring, a decoy - It goes out to sea for a day and comes back with a new identity, but the cargo isn't actually coming from there.

Their actual stockpiles must be elsewhere. But... Where?"

They unload the produce from the ship when it arrives in port, right?"

Oliver: "Yeah. produce, food stocks for travel, anything that's perishable. Don't wanna keep old stores sittin' around spoilin'."

"So where the hell are they getting a full ship's worth of produce, within one night's worth of sea travel? Unless they're, I guess, swapping cargo with some other ship out at sea, and then swapping the nametags? There's no good reason for that though."

"...what do you mean?
Isn't the running theory that the real Rose and real Marigold are the same ship?"

Oliver: "Right now, yeah. I didn't search far enough back in records, but every ship is on record when it's bein' built. Seems weird that someone could've registered a ship twice, when there was only ever one ship bein' built.

Unless if it was built somewhere else an' brought here? But it has the same construction as other ships built in the dry docks here."

"...hm. True. There should be more identifying marks than just some registration papers on the ship, too. Is it the Marigold, or the Rose, or even neither?"

Oliver: "No idea."


Hm.

Well, it's around 5pm now, and it'll take about an hour to get back to the house, and there's the dinner with Ellen at 7. Might be time to head back.
