Event description[]

The lookout shouts! Far above, the false-stars in the cavern roof are shifting: a rare and ominous event. What now?


Actions Requirements Effects Notes
“Eyes on the deck!”

Forbid them to look. You can't really stop them, but you can at least discourage discussion. They won't like it, but it's safer.

    Grumbles and mutters

    “First Officer! Take that man's name!” But they quieten soon enough.

    Record the change and assign a name

    If the new shape seems well-omened, your crew may be cheered. Who knows?

    Failed event
    A Darkness

    Three of the false-stars wink out altogether, as suddenly as closed eyes. The pattern that remains is as hopeless and meaningless as cast dice. Somewhere, a zailor begins to sob.

    Rare failed event (50%)
    The Alarming Pig

    “Pigs,” one zailor sighs. “It's always pigs.” What's wrong with pigs...? The bo'sun shakes a solemn head. “Never ask about pigs at zee,” he insists.

    Successful event
    The Zee-Bat

    “Bats is luck!” a gap-toothed stoker avers. All agree. Leathery but lucky.

    Rare successful event (40%)
    The Rayed Wheel

    One zailor claims it resembles the sun; another, ‘a Hindoo mandala-cross’! A third suggests ‘the rose-window of Chartres Cathedral’. This excites mockery. Nevertheless, the reaction is positive.
