Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Loot and scuttle her

She was a fine ship. Take what you can and move on.

Lean pickings

Here's something at the back of the hold...

Pirate-Poet DLC[]

Crippled, broken, already feeding the zee's endless hunger. Little remains of the ship but scraps of sinking cargo and a few buoyant parts of its splintered carcass.

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Investigate the wreckage

You will have to be quick to salvage anything.

You steer close, shining the lamp on the debris

"Cap'n! Quick! Over there, port-side!"

Investigate the wreckage

The Pirate-Poet made this class popular with corsairs and smugglers. A pity so little remains to plunder.

A fishing expedition

The crew manages to scoop up a few crates before the sinking ship loses its struggle with inevitability. What's this?

Search for the Pirate-Poet

The Merciless Modiste looks out at the wreckage, unconcerned. "Oh, it'll take more than that to sink her. Come on, my dear. I know you're there."

A survivor!

The prow-light catches the Pirate-Poet desperately clutching a few buoyant bits of debris. The Modiste's smile flickers. "A pity, almost. Ho hum."

Leave the wreckage

The battle is over. You're done here.

The ship sinks beneath the glass

Its cargo is lost. Any survivors are on their own.
