The Gang escapes the Ginger Priest and his Old Man Spider master and escape the town of Vale, which vanishes in a cloud of black smoke. Before leaving, Tamburlaine makes a deal with the Ginger Priest: they can keep Huckleberry, but only if Tamburlaine swears to do a task for the Priest. The deal is struck, and the mark on Huck’s hand is now on Tamburlaine’s.
While at sea, the gang encounter a trio of Dragon Boats at a distance, but convince them that they are carriers of CancerAids, a made-up disease that struck great fear in the hearts of those solid Northmen.
Finally they found a floating market place, and bought a bunch of shit.
Oh, and Templeton stole most of Huck’s shit.
