Hey Lyth,

I'm going to wait another day. If I don't hear from you before, I'm going to post, as I want to continue the story. Won't puppet, or only very slightly.  Hope you're well! :)

Lili, I believe you're all still on the pier, not the quay. :)

I know I should know this or at least look it up in a dictionary, but what is a Quay? I know what a pier is. Anyway i am going to post.

Grallen, great to hear that you have internet back!

Lili, welcome back!

Toama, I third agree on what you said, though TH, will always be my favorite, sorry Alt.

Enough said, back to posting.

I've used 'quay' ('a structure on the shore of a harbour where ships may dock'), because I imagined that the ship is docked right at the edge of the land area of the harbour.

If by 'pier' you mean "a structure built out into the water, where a ship may dock" (the difference to a quay being that under a pier, water is flowing, while under a quay there is solid ground) I didn't imagine there to be a pier. I'm sorry if that's inconsistent with other posts? It's no problem to change a detail or two if necessary.

Anyway, a land-rat like Lili may not know the difference ...

Actually Lili, I believe there are both and yes, you are correct in assuming that a ship back in those times would be anchored near the shore, therefore "quay" would be the correct term.

If my post needs editing, please just say so and I will do so, thanks.

Oh Blast it all, I forgot to change into Damien. Sorry.

Go ahead.  With Lili's post, if I were to post now, I'd have to assume your movements, so I'd rather wait for for you. :D

Lili, I was reading back and it is a pier.

Here's a post from Altario on the 17th page:

Quote
Altario stormed heavily toward the pier until his footfalls started thumping on the wooden planks of the pier itself.  He stopped.  The pier ran out into the sea far enough that two boats on each side could be moored here.

Personally I'll write my post under the assumption it's a low pier, rather than a tall one, that way one could still reach down and touch the water easily enough.

Coul not a pier extend out from the quay?  Then it would depend on where you were standing, no?

It could. But according to your previous post, it extends really far out into the sea, to the length that the entire length of the keel of the ship fits running lengthwise down it.
