> [approach the ogre]

 

You cautiously approach the ogre, making a point of keeping your hands where it can see them so as not to give it any cause for alarm. The light from Aloth's staff reflects off the cannonball in the creature's hand, and spying the rag in the other you realise the ogre has been polishing it. There is a large, wooden shelve full of cannonballs next to the hulking brute so meticulously furbished you can see the deck clearly reflected off them. Next to the shelve there are two chutes leading to the upper decks; While snooping around, you had spied their other ends on the gun and main deck, and from the diameter of the cannon mouths deducted they were used to pass cannonballs down to the storage, as confirmed by your current observations. You see no apparent means of moving the balls up the decks, however, other than simply carrying them up the stairs. It's a puzzling oversight, seeing as this seems like the more important direction during naval combat, and the projectiles look too heavy for Orlans to even comfortably lift, never mind haul across decks midst battle.

 

As you draw closer, you notice the ogre is wearing what appear to be tailor-made clothes, as opposed to the usual furs and leather straps you're accustomed to seeing its kin sporting. It appears a dress of some sort, though due to the creature's awkward posture its difficult to tell. The attire settles loosely on the massive shoulders, with a rather generous cleavage in between. It's milky in colour, with faded, green, rectangular patterns framing the edges. The lower half flows across the ogre's torso into a heap on the floor, from under which the two muscular legs ending in bare feet emerge, the bended knees almost scraping the ceiling. You can't help but wonder if the creature is wearing any underwear.

 

The ogre stares at you anxiously as you approach. You can hear metal creak as its massive fist tightens around the cannonball. Clearly, it wasn't expecting visitors, and isn't at all sure as to react to your presence.

The ogre seems to relax somewhat, though it still eyes you warily.

Ogre: "Ellie."

 

> I'm very pleased to meet you, Ellie.

> Can I ask you some questions?

> Wait, you're a girl?

> Well, that's all I wanted to know, I guess. I'll be off, now.
