  • My, that's quite the haul ye have, there!

  • Won at the tables, was it?

  • Well -

  • Here's to your very good health.

  • Cheers.

  • Oh, no

  • I'll not be rollin' the dice with ye.

  • Not a gamblin' man no more

  • or so I tells me self

  • There were a time, though...

  • What happened?

  • The River King happened, that's what.

  • Aye

  • Two-Coats

  • That old devil Tahm Kench.

  • He's what happened.

  • I was bilge-poor

  • beg your pardon

  • and livinn' in a flophous

  • Had nothin' to me name

  • not 'til a single gold Kraken

  • aye, this one 'ere

  • came into my possession.

  • I could tell you how, but you'd call me a liar, heh.

  • So

  • with this one coin

  • what I oughta done was pay me debts, and find a new crew to join.

  • I was a harpooner, see.

  • Shoulda put aside whatever was left for the future.

  • Been responsible, like.

  • Harpoonin's a harsh life, even for a younger man.

  • But that's when the River King found me.

  • Why work someone else's ship,” he says

  • "slavin' away

  • riskin' your life for next t' nothin'

  • when ye might 'ave a ship o' your own?”

  • I just had to think bigger, like.

  • O' course, one Kraken won't buy a ship

  • but 'e had an answer to that, didn't he.

  • Dice.

  • One good throw o' the bones, an' I'd 'ave enough to start me own little operation.

  • Others could do the danger work, while I sits back, nice and plum, enjoyin' the profits.

  • An' after a few more drinks, you understand

  • that crooked devil's advice starts to make a lot o' sense to my ears.

  • So

  • blinded by greed and possibility

  • I went along wi' it.

  • That night were a blur

  • I awoke well after noon the next day

  • me head fairly poundin'!

  • Had no idea where I was

  • some fancy bawdy-house, as it turns out

  • but on the dresser

  • were me previous night's winnings...

  • More than enough to purchase me self a ship!

  • Ah

  • but the River King

  • 'e'd given me a taste for somethin' more.

  • Why should young Lars content his self with a single ship, when he could 'ave a fleet?

  • Just needed to chance me hand a few more times...

  • That's Bilgewater.

  • There's riches to be had

  • if you're willin' to risk everything

  • over and over.

  • With old Two-Coat's arm around me, I was led from the dice tables to other halls of avarice

  • from backroom card games to gamblin' and bettin' parlors, high and low.

  • I spent a fortune

  • lost a fortune

  • then made it all back again.

  • Around and around in that allurin' spiral I went.

  • I was feelin' the hunger, the yearning

  • and it was pullin' me down like a whirlpool.

  • Years passed, an' somewhere along the way

  • I'm ashamed to say I forgot what I was doing all this for.

  • I forgot who I was.

  • I had it all, but

  • it never were enough.

  • I wanted more.

  • And then I started losin' big.

  • That made me double-down

  • go for broke

  • all-or-nothin'

  • looking for the big stakes to put me back on top.

  • Pretty soon

  • I was in a worse state than I'd been to start with.

  • Sleepin' in the gutter

  • Catching rats to eat

  • if I were lucky.

  • I begged borrowed and stole from everyone who'd ever shown me any kindness.

  • Lost all me mates

  • chasing the dream.

  • 'E feeds on misery, see, does Tahm Kench.

  • As old as sin, 'e is, and older than Bilgewater by far.

  • Been 'round since the start of things

  • gorgin' his self on the desperation what comes with the greed and sorrow in men's hearts.

  • I mean, I'd done it to me self

  • but it were him what give me the means.

  • Ye might say, 'e took me to the cliff's edge

  • but I were the numpty what threw me self off

  • beg your pardon

  • and that old glutton revelled in me despair.

  • Came to me once more, 'e did,

  • when I was at me very lowest

  • drinkin' from puddles

  • havin' sold me own leg to be used for chum.

  • In the darkest night, whisperin' an' cajolin',

  • 'e pressed this gold Kraken back into me hand, with a knowin' wink.

  • Twere the same one I'd 'ad back at the start!

  • It were this damn coin what started me on that wretched path!

  • Eh, 'e opened his mouth up wide, and says,

  • It's not too late, Lars. Never too late. Come with me, an' we'll find you a fortune again...”

  • Even after everythin', I was tempted.

  • 'Course I was! But no. I resisted - Mother Serpent knows how.

  • Two-Coats only laughed.

  • Said he'd be there when I changed me mind.

  • And, sure enough, the temptation's still there

  • now, every day.

  • So here I am.

  • Friendless.

  • Broke.

  • All the best years of me life behind me, wasted in those lost decades.

  • Can't remember most of it, neither, so I've no idea if I even enjoyed me self.

  • Anyways. Enough o' my ramblin'.

  • There's a lesson to be learned, 'ere

  • - keep your purse strings tight, and never, ever make a deal wi' the River King.

  • Ye've always got more to lose...

My, that's quite the haul ye have, there!
