+1 x Mirrors
Sly Navigator is a potential First Officer crew member. Besides the Mascots, he is the only Officer without an extensive storyline.
"Competent? Probably. Trustworthy? Possibly."
The Sly Navigator is obtained automatically if you have chosen Your Past as A poet!.
"The zee, Captain. Look at it, out there! It's not our friend. Don't forget that."
|Increase your Mirrors
"Tell me a tale, and I'll tell you another. The zee is full of stories."
The Navigator likes to talk about the zee. He has long opinions on its beauties, its dangers, its salinity, its depth and its contents - and the rest. Every other sentence starts 'The zee...' Zee, zee, zee... After a while you reach the point of semantic satiation, and the word 'zee' means no more to you than the word 'zop'. But you zeem to have learnt something.
|Game note: Spending a Secret will improve your Mirrors, but no higher than 50.|
|What does he want?
What does he seek at zee?
|"The zee is enough."
"But now you mention it... I have always had a desire to see Frostfound. The place where the zee rises to become a castle. The place where questions and riddles do battle for truth." He sighs dreamily, but he is watching you carefully. "Yes. Frostfound."
|Game note: Frostfound can be found in the very north of the zee.|
|Proposition the Sly Navigator
"I do talk nonsense about the zee, I know. But I like it. And I like you."
The Navigator is rather earnest, and given to displays of slightly unnerving enthusiasm; but like any good navigator, he knows his way around, and understands the importance of timing. You are more than satisfied by the time you both drift off to sleep.
|Exchange a secret smile
A romance with an Officer might be considered unseemly. You'll need to be discreet.
Game note: Opportunities for other trysts with the Gunner will occur while you're at sea - but quite yet.
