How Many First Mates Does the Blood Tide Have?

This past week I have been running a lot of different characters through the Sentinel of Stormreach story arc.  I took Lorrikk (Level 11 Monk), Garrrin (Level 21 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild), and Erdrique (Level 10 Druid) through various quests within the chain.  In fact, I took Erdrique completely through the chain (minus Spies in the House).  One thing I noticed this week, is that the Blood Tide sure does have a lot of First Mates.  I saw a plethora of these minotaurs during the week.  I ran across them in Searing Heights on my way to the quest Bargain of Blood.  And then I ran across a First Mate in each quest of the story chain (Bargain of Blood, The Black Loch, Storm the Beaches, and The Tide Turns).  I guess Captain Tew just knows that his First Mates are just expendable.  Talk about a high pressure position.. .

Just thought that all of these First Mate sightings was a little curious.  Thanks for reading everybody and I hope everybody had a safe and happy Easter!!  Now get back into DDO and get some hunting in!!  Later

  1. I agree that it seems more an OOC description of the power-level than a rank aboard. Usually a ship has only two first mates: The announced, official first mate & the secretive, lurking or pretending-submission usurper of the rank.

    OOC = Out of Character. The inability of distinguishing between OOC (player knowledge) & IC (in-character knowledge) is an important aspect of transforming anyone into a true noob and spoiler to good roleplaying. 😉
