Event description[]

This is the zailor who came begging to you for a berth. He's done good work, this one. But he's keeping a little shrine to the Salt, the nameless god of the horizon, at the back of the hold.


Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Permit it

Out here, a captain needs all the help he can get. Even from sad strange gods of farewells.

A breath of air

You let him keep his salt circle and his chalked arrow. That night, as you stand on the foredeck, a soft breeze comes out of the East, the Salt's direction; tousles your hair; passes.

Forbid it

You'll have none of this nonsense aboard your ship. If the Salt even exists, its attention is dangerous.

A ripple of discontent

Not all the crew are pleased. But most understand.
