please pass the enclosed letter on to Alba, I haven't written to her for much too long. I don't know how much longer we will stay here, but it's probably better to continue to send any letters to this address, I can always send for them after I have left.
The cat I mentioned in my last letter belongs to Lucia now and it carried a message from El Gato. I said that I was afraid we had made an enemy and it seems I was right. The kitten carried a ring with a valuable stone on its collar and Lucia told us she recognised the ring from the fight in the pirate cave where she had planned to take it with her. The ring was stuck on the finger of the woman Logan had killed by accident, though, and so she left it. This ring may or may not be the same one, in any case it was accompanied by a note that said "Since you have been so interested in this..."

Yes,I know. Throwing knives for serious damage = mostly bullshit. Incidentally, Shortymonster has a very interesting post on long swords and the comments discuss knife and other weapon myths. But anyway, while I'm playing 7th Sea, I'm totally fine with less realism and more heroism.
We used a map of the tavern and game markers to plot the fight. When the GM started to fish the black markers out of the box and just didn't stop until he had two hands full, someone asked with a definite sense of doom: "Are you going to use ALL of those?"
But of course he was:
We've all been playing our characters for a long time now and it was a nice illustration just how powerful they are. We didn't have all that much trouble in the fight. But I still wouldn't like to come up against du Doré with Marcello. Ramon's player on the other hand is eager for the challenge and I, like Marcello, have the feeling he will get to try his duelling skills.
