*Gideon returns to his ship and the hours pass slowly, and eventually nightfall comes. Leaving the port drenched in darkness, with nought but the crashing of the waves to fill the silent void.*

before long, a thick, grey fog descends upon the port, so thick it's hard to see beyond the hull of your own ship

*Khalista stands at the rail, by the 24 pound aft chaser. She kneels down, takes a leather pouch from her belt, and empties its contents on the deck. Rune stones scatter, and she begins to read them. more for comfort, and something to do, than a hope of reading any true meaning*

Minutes pass, in eerie silence. Nothing happens, for long enough for it to be either worrying or calming, visibility being almost nil. Then suddenly, chaos.
A gout of flame is seen further down the port, about 100 meters to the right of gideon's ship. The flame engulfs the deck of a human ship docked at the port, 3rd rate ship of the line, largest ship in the port, immolating the entire main deck and all those upon it. Silhouetted against the flame, is a reptilian visage, sharp teeth, spines, like the fierce head of a ferocious dragon. The air fills with screams from the victims, until moments later they are drowned out. From just behind the dragon's head, flashes of light begin to illuminate the night, as the sound of cannonfire buries the cries of desperate and ding men, cannonballs ripping into other ships in the port. Other flashes emerge above the cannonfire, likely mortars, followed soon by explosions within the port itself. The flashes reveal, barely visible in the fog, the shape of a ship, large and armoured, not like anything you have ever seen before. Worse, due to the position of the ship, you are unable to fire upon it. The fog has allowed it to close with the 3rd rate undetected, and now it sits completely outside of the arcs of fire of your broadsides. The night is alive with cannonfire, screams, and explosions.

*Khalista puts her shoulder to the aft chaser, its backward facing allowing an arc of fire. She touches her palm to the touchhole, and ignites magefire within, jumping back, and covering her ears. The cannon roars, a 24 pound ball hurled towards the ship in the fog*

if the shot has any effect, she can't see it. Fog's too thick. Meanwhile, the ship is tearing great holes out of many of the others in the port, resistance quickly being torn apart as it closes with the port itself. Onlookers can just about make out figures leaping from the ship onto the port itself

"LOOSE THE MAINSAILS! AND CUT THE MOORINGS! NAGA SIGHTED!"
*All across the port men are streaming out of brothels and houses in various states of undress and running either toward their ships, or the ports own defensive emplacements. In minutes the port is soon returning fire, huge 42lb balls being launched toward the aggressor*

Fire begins to ignite within the port due to one of the many mortar shells. The sound of fighting begins to echo out among the chaos from within the port, although the fog makes it impossible to see what's going on. Also due to the fog, any damage to the Naga cannot be seen...but moments later, the defensive emplacements go silent one by one. Meanwhile, on both of your ships, you hear the sound of footsteps right by where your ships are/were moored, and the sound of small arms fire, as one or two of your crew drop dead to flintlock balls.

"PREPARE TO REPEL BOARDERS! PORT SWIVELS OBLITERATE THAT DOCK!"
*On his command the swivel guns begin firing at the dock between Gideon and Khal's ships. Obliterating any would be attackers while musket armed men stand at the rails looking for targets*

there are already boarders clambering up the side of the ship, a few making it over the top onto deck. They are Skeletal figures, clad in some form of plated armour you are unfamiliar with, armed with curved swords or with spears, along with a brace of pistols. They begin to engage your men with worrying ferocity, although they are greatly outnumbered, and you can tell your port guns did a number on them before they could get aboard.

*Men armed with boarding pikes and axes great them on the decks, and the musket armed crew members fall back and fix bayonets while the pikemen hold the line. Gideon stands with only a single sword drawn waiting for the Naga to catch fire or become a silhouette against the burning port as his ship gently drifts away from the docks*

*Khalistas crew are hardbitten fighters, coming from various gangs and pirate bands as it is. The only thing separating them from that being a uniform. No two men are armed the same, cutlasses, longswords, spears, axes, clubs, maces. anything that could be feasibly used to kill a man is present in some form. Ragged musket fire rains down on the boarders.*

the fighting is however hard and tough, but the boarders are being bested bit by bit.
Moments later, there is another flash, this time from the defensive guns. You hear the impact pretty soon after, But it seems they are now firing on the moored ships rather than the Naga. The guns have been turned against you.

Khalista: *As a boarder comes at her, she simply raises her hand, and mutters a few words. A lance of eldritch energy leaps from her fingertips and strikes the boarder in the head. It imparts such force that he is sent cartwheeling over the rail.* "LOOSE THE SAIL! I DONT CARE HOW LITTLE WATER WE'VE GOT! WE HAVE TO MOVE!"

*An easterly gale picks up as the Huntress escapes from the docks finally allowing Gideon a modicum of control. He gives the order to fire, singling out the ports fortifications as the target. The Huntress' guns fire in near unison, a bone shaking roar echoes for miles, the starboard guns adding their voices to the cacophony of death and destruction. Their targets and the hidden Naga all receive a deadly hammering from the swaths of round shot descending upon them.*

the entire port now is aflame, as are many of the docked ships. Gideon is suddenly showered with water as one of the defensive guns misses his ship by mere metres, the impact in the sea sending a gout of water high into the air.

still no clue as to whether you've even done any damage, but every moment you stay makes it more likely you're dead in the water. Over a dozen ships are already sinking in the port, and the Naga shows no sign of stopping, no matter how many times you fire blindly into the fog at her. (why are you still here :P)

*Khalista swings the jenny around to port, putting her on a straight course towards the port side ship. her fore chasers, a pair of 24 pounder long guns fire. Hurling their shot out towards the encroaching ships.*

*The Huntress lumbers behind turning in a slightly wider arc and once in position let's her 18 pounder long guns roar, sending a far more accurate volley into the bow of the enemy vessel. All along the Huntress sides her broadside guns are pushed out. A mix of 24 pounder and 32 pounder long guns adorning her hull*

*The Huntress' hull absorbs most of the impacts but a few carronades punch through, eviscerating some of her crew and knocking a pair of 24 pounders out of action. The next broadside comes barely 30 seconds later and it ignites the enemy 5th rates powder reserves, obliterating the vessel in an explosion that illuminates the night sky and showers the sea around it with wood and body parts*
