He runs a hoof across your side and finally settles at a spot near the base of your wing.>>307096
He doesn't reply, but takes the letter, tears it open, and begins reading. The Commodore is physically imposing: he's a huge specimen of the Minotaur species, and even while reclining he is considerably larger than you. You understand why his cabin has double doors.
He gets to the end of the letter and gives the tiniest hint of a smirk. "So you're here to join my crew? Proven yourself in battle I see. Anything you think you should tell me about yourself?">>307097

Your stealth is bears. You know no fear. With the agility of Ruxiang and the stealth of Spring Water, you find yourself back on the second floor of the tavern so stealthily
that even you aren't sure how you got there. Looks like there aren't many naval ponies up here.
