The Oswaldine docked at the port of Westholm before its maiden voyage
To the southern port of Westholm lies a newly built ship, of fresh paint and glistening trinkets set to bring good luck to the voyageurs. The bustling sound of the port becomes very apparent at close distance with many people working in the vicinity, both loading cargo and carrying equipment back and from the city centre. At the heart of the city the herald rings his bell thrice, he cries out to the crowd and the square lurkers,
"Hear year, hear ye! Ælfwine has chosen his crew for the voyage, the following names are to report to the docks within seven months (9th of October)"
The herald corrects his posture as he unravels a scroll and begins to read the list from top to bottom.
As he comes to a stop he would put the scroll away and stuff it back in his pocket, clearing his throat before declaring again
"And ill say it one last time, as I was paid to dutifully do so. The crewmembers have seven months to prepare for voyage or be left behind."
