Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Spin them a story

"Ah, now, any lubber knows what a blue light means - "

Eyes wide

Failed event

The darkness in the Neath is more than the absence of light. It's a physical presence which distorts the shape of the world. Your light melts the darkness, restores sanity to the world. You explain something of this to your zailors. It's not the first time they've heard it, but they seem slightly less nervous.
