Smirk lightly shakes Nick has he holds him by the throat - "What's the matter with you, Summoner? Try harder!"

Sitting in his chair, Nick looks bored by it.

Sam just smiles, knowing that later they'll be playing for keeps. This was good practice.

Crushing the opposition:

Samantha, Nick and Anne meet with a small group of sailors in the ship's hold for a clandestine game of poker. It is agreed that the squad will play against the crew's three best players while the rest watch from the sides—they're here to enjoy the company of attractive women anyway.

The terms of the game are thus: each player starts with the equivalent of 2 silvers, and the game ends only when one has taken all of the pot. Once everyone has agreed, the game starts.

It becomes obvious in the first few rounds that Anne is now familiar with the rules, but it's still quite easy to tell when she's bluffing. Nick being a mute helps tremendously when betting against the three sailors, and Smirk has a lot of fun taking their money from them. Samantha however is a shrewd player who knows how to lie well, and when to fold them. In only an hour and a half, she managed to clean the table and take all 12 pieces of silver for herself.
The sailors do not mind one bit, and they gladly offer drinks to the squad members for a game well played. One of the three crew members who played against them—a brawny young man and boatswain of the Happy Frog—even propositions to Samantha when the party begins to die down.

Sam is really proud of herself. She thanks the guys for being good sports, and has drinks of the heavy stuff so that she can politely decline any offers for overtime in favor of sleeping off the booze, and maybe a hangover.

After a joyful evening, the squad members go to their cabins and turn in for the night. Only Smirk gets to spend the night on the upper deck, watching the stars shine in the sky.
