He used to be now some distance too outdated to idiot an individual into providing him an apprenticeship; even terrible, half-blind, sometimes-senile previous Roggit have been suspicious approximately his age. He couldn’t visit sea, from now on than he may perhaps take an apprenticeship; he had heard that between Ethsharites a sailor may well commence as overdue as age 16, and he may have handed for that, yet within the loose Lands the captains most well liked to begin their humans younger, at twelve or 13.
