**There was more than one rotting corpse away from the pile, although what they had in common (save the one missing some clothes) were their nicer clothes. One of them has a particularly glorious beard as well.
The piled bodies wearing chains appeared to have died killing the Garr corpse they were shackled too. Actually, there was another commonality as well: All of the non-Garr shackled corpses were Jakari. All of the non-pile corpses appeared to be furless. Probably Nadrasks? It was hard to tell at this point.**
**It looks like the bodies had been relieved of their weapons, but Snake does manage to find a good deal of silver and a couple of gold pieces on the nicely dressed bodies. Maybe 51g in all. It is highly unlikely that he located all of the gold without anyone else in the group noticing. He also finds five decks of playing cards, a half-drunk flask of rum, several flasks of water, a picture of some dead guy's wife (probably), dice, flint&steel, a back scratcher, some sealed rations, a machinist's timepiece, and various other nick-nacks and totems.
Among other lootables, the bearded corpse had a bit of parchment that looked like a ledger calculating how much he was owed for per unit. The number of units matches the number of Jakari corpses plus one.**
Snake knew that the others had seen him take the gold but he figured they would ask for it if they wanted some of it. He grouped the rest of the items together including the silver and a single gold piece.
Snake - "Likely before, or the ledger would surely be altered. The only people that are worse to cross than slavers are their buyers."
Jougo watched as snake got the money. He looked at Akane and rubbed his fingers together and gestured towards snake. Figuring she would get the hint, he responded. "So this thing seems to have been involved in either the abduction of a slave, or was one of the slaves himself and got tired of it from what I can see here. Does that ledger say where they were going?"
"Slave owning is frowned upon by the Peacekeepers, I think. Maybe one of these men has a bounty on him. We should collect the heads of some of the well dressed corpses, perhaps we can collect a bounty when we come back."
