I'll go ahead and say the pirates could probably care less they're being trained as it's such an ordinary thing to happen, even if they don't like them. They likely know about it, if The Quartermaster found out so easily.

The Quartermaster's name is Danny?! Was that mentioned before?

Also, the Quartermaster smiles?! Has he done that before?

It's been mentioned a few times I think, Sawbones has called him that before, and The Captain's called him Daniel. As for the smiling thing... I don't know, haha! Maybe once in chapter 4? XD

Either they have quite weird snails in their world, or Sawbones just made a very odd simile...

The real saying is 'tough as nails,' though knowing this world, I wouldn't say weird snails are out of the question XD

Wow. I don't know why I notice it only on that page, but the colours are really nice here in comparison to earlier chapters!

Also, I laughed at Nate's and Sebastian's eyes in the third panel. They look like "oh, crap, we're caught!"

And... Daniel and Sawbones, are they friends or are they together? As in, lovers? Because I swear Daniel is a completely different person around Sawbones...

Though I'm a bit surprised he's willing to teach them fighting. I thought he's out for Seb's blood.

...sorry, I'm blathering again.

Thanks! I brightened the colours a lot. In the beginning I was going for a certain kind of look, but it didn't really work the way I wanted so it was time to call it a day and go for a more traditional type of palette.

Well, they're good friends but there are one sided feelings. They both know about it and accept it's a thing but also that it's not going to happen.

The Quartermaster doesn't really have much against Sebastian. Though he did say it'd make his life easier if he were dead (which is true) he doesn't have any actual animosity. Now it's clear he's sticking around, he might as well be as useful as possible.

I'm more concerned about the fact that all of Sawbones's problems are apparently solved with blades. Like I get that he does amputations and stuff, but all of your problems?! Really?

It's a bit of an exaggeration!

You know, that does sound like a plausible excuse whether the QM means it as one or not. They can just say they need to learn combat in case other pirates or royal officers attack them.
It is just good to the most sensible or one of the most sensible people on board to be on their side :D
Also, I expected Baines, haha. Since he is a lich and probably never sleeps.

Yup! Heh, they've gotten quite lucky here.

I suppose it's been a while since Baines showed up! Welp, he'll be back soon enough.
