Skulls and Shackles with Mike
A6 - Middle Hold
This is the ship’s main cargo hold. The hold is mostly empty, save for the
14 12 pigs; normally kept caged. They periodically escape and run loose within the hold. In the forward section, a flight of wooden stairs climbs up to the officers’ quarters, while a second set of stairs descends into the lower hold. Owlbear Hartshorn is invariably chained to the foremast here to keep him from causing trouble and to keep people out of the officers’ cabin.
Another flight of stairs in the aft section next to the galley leads up to the captain’s quarters, but it is common knowledge among the crew that the door is trapped. Stored near the mainmast are two light ballistas, a disassembled light catapult, and 12 barrels containing 20 gallons of oil each.
