A Notice to be noticed. (ATTN: Any on land - starter post)

It is with heavy boots and steps the Harbourmaster walks to his post in the setting sun, a lantern slowly burning, hanging from his hand as the wave knock and writhe against the stone and wood of the dock and post.
Slumping the lantern down with little care, he snorts a little before he wipes his nose against his tattered sleeve. A hammer is retrived from his torn trousers and a nail is held in his teeth before he retrieves another from a pouch of a long suffering belt around his rotund girth.
His darkened and marked brow furrowed as he hammers up a notice against the post, the seal of the King marked a little messily against it's lower corner. Sign of some dimwit in the British Navy. However the message is clear.. another warning of piracy and it's consequence.. mostly involving pain, death.. more death..

But.. there was a much more significant part of this notice for those who read it. All cargo MUST be cleared with the Harbourmaster himself before it may enter or be sold in the port of Tortuga. It doesn't seem like good news. But as the harbourmaster walks back down into the dock, the smile on his face is clearly seen turning to a smirk of self confident importance as the music of the town is starting up for another night of drinking and much much more..
