    Baril Gerean was not quite sure what he was doing. One moment he was walking down a crowded street in the port city of Stormhaven, and the next moment he was listening to a odd looking fellow describing some grand adventure in an abyssal plane. The odd fellow stood on the deck of a most odd looking ship. One without sails or even a rudder. Gerean had never seen such a ship and was baffled as to how it would actually sail. The man who had not given his name was extolling the crowd with stories of a thing called the "Dragonqueen" ruler of some evil and fell plane deep below. Baril Gerean was not an adventurous man by nature but something in the odd fellows' voice drew him in closer...

    Added a floor texture and darkened the walls a bit.

    Well, we do try to make the challenges inspiring but sometimes we pick something so open-ended that, if you've had an idea in the past, now is the time to dust it off.

    Night fell over the city of Stormhaven and Baril Gerean hadn't moved. He had stood and listened to the strange man with the strange boat tell his stories over and over. He had watched as a few people signed up for the expedition. He had almost done it himself once or twice but his innate fear took over and stopped him. The crowd was gone now and the strange man had retired below decks. Gerean had a discomforting feeling about all of this but couldn't quite place why. Without really realizing it he found himself stealing onto the deck of the ship with no sails to see what he could find out...

    Added some torches and started on the highlights.

    Moving about a ship posed no problem for Baril Gerean he had worked on his fathers' fisher for his entire life. He had never encountered a vessel like this before however. As he had noted earlier there was no sail and no mast. The deck was strangely smooth and not made of wooden planks as most ships were. Looking aft Gerean saw no wheel or any other method of steering the ship. He was headed to the rear of the vessel when he noticed a red glow coming from below decks. Something inside him told him to run but he had to know what he had seen....

    Insert evil objects here. I may be forced to draw dretch and after a few tries I have realized that that is going to be a problem..anyone have any ideas?

    "draw dretch"? I don't understand.

    IIRC a Dretch is some kind of demon or something.

    Yep, a dretch is one of the lowest demons:
