Can you describe our locations, and if the are any open flames nearby?

All of you are on the cog or galley (mostly below decks) floating alongside the frigate.  Ladders leading from the frigate to your boats have been lowered down.  There are no open fire sources, but as a pirate you realize most of their powder stores are below decks.

You also realize blowing them would likely take out the other two ships as well with them being so close.

"Avast! We have you partially surrounded! Surrender now and I shall show you mercy!"

Wellesley will light a torch and hand it to the Emerald skeleton. "Get that up to them, will you?"
"I am the Black Mage! I cast the spells that makes the peoples fall down."

"No problem Boss."

Once Mustave is on the broom Pat will move up so that he and Mustave can see across all of the decks.
Does Pat see any enemies that stand out from the crowd?

You'll have to target much further back, you seriously fuck up a lot of the crew

ye angry slaves (former) begin charging up the ladders as the skelly maneuvers its way above decks to join the other skellies (the torch is snatched by a passing vengeful hooligan)

Bitches, do you really want so much for me to get up there and take care of you personally?

Two pink circles of mystic energy form on the battlefield, one around Morte, and the other around one of the slavers among the wounded.
