You caught the town off guard, you and your crew did. It was a right good choice and they never saw it coming. The raiding party had touched land in the dead of night, catching the town and it's guards unaware. By the time they realized what was even going on, more than half the town's share of goods had been ransacked. Now, your men fight their way back to shore, back to the ships they came on to haul their plunder straight to you.
