I'm in the hold of some exotic boat. Most of my belongings have been stuffed into what looks like a small closet, which my man-servant refers to as "the head". I see no way out. Every moment, I expect the boat to leave the dock, en route to a slavers' island, where I will be traded for a barrel of gunpowder or somesuch.
The end is near -- I can feel it.
