The Escape Artist rode high in the waters, signaling a light ship that danced over the waves almost as much as it cut though them. Its many sails held a hint of golden color to them, as if aged, however on close inspection one would see that they were dyed this color intentionally, though only the captain knew for what reason. The railings and furnishing of the ship held its own gold hue, the wood stained and sealed with resin. On the front of the Escape Artist was a figure of a beautiful mermaid who held some of the captain's features, and sported several nooses handing from her neck, all cut from the gallows of men who gained a second chance on the crew. The ship itself was sleek and sported a multitude of sails, as it was built for speed and agility, able to outrun most other ships. While it held considerably less of the broadside canons found on most ships of its sort, the Escape Artist instead had forward facing and rear facing batteries, with the captain's quarters relocated to below deck. Many would find the rear guns a nasty surprise to any that thought to chase the pirate vessel. Cannons were loaded with glass jars filled with oil, whale fat, or pitch, as well as cloth that would be lit upon firing. It was said that the captain had made a deal with Davy Jones, to give half of the loot to the seas, due to how many ships were sunk as robbed.

The sea was as smooth as a sheet of glass as the derelict ship Red Comet drifted into view of the keen eyes likely in the crows nest of the Artist. The ship had once been a proud vessel, the fear of the french coast for a short time as it terrorized a few select families. The French Navy had even remarked that there was no ship alive what could catch her, that the Comet moved at three times the speed of any other ship. She had once been a magnificent craft to look on, with her hull laquered crimson and the waveline sealed in black pitch, flying an astonishing amount of black canvas to catch the fickle winds and use them with dire purpose. She had attacked primarily at night, with red lanterns hung along her deck and a great bullseye lamp lit in place of a figurehead directly under a bladed ramming horn at her prow, giving the ship the appearance of some monstrous red cyclops leering from the foggy dark and moving with terrible purpose and speed.

Now, however, things were different. Her once beautiful hull was cracked by the sun on the open waters, chipped and pitted by musketfire, blackened and burned by balls of pitch and flame arrows launched at her in hopes to catch her ablaze, and featured huge shattered holes where she had been broadsided again and again. She was riding high in the water, nearly everything aboard to include the crew jettisoned to keep her afloat, and all of her longboats missing. No movement could be seen on the sun bleached decks, save for a single soul at the tiller, trying in vain to coax some life into her sails. The sails themselves had been holed by cannon fire and burned by pitch, so that only a single mainsail remained in serviceable condition, though with so many holes it was flaccid in the scant wind. The whole ship groaned in her death throes as she threatened to break apart at the slightest provocation, and her once sleek lines seemed warped and distorted by the forces she'd faced. She drifted listlessly toward the mainland, though if she'd ever make it was anyone's guess.
