Actions Requirements Effects Notes
The Zeppelin is complete
It is time to return to the Exquisite Seneschal for your reward. The apes will handle the final details.
Escorted to the Wildweald Court

The overseers dispatch a pair of spare monkeys to row you to Sovereign Island. The trip is endlessly more pleasurable without having to do the rowing. By the time you arrive, the Exquisite Seneschal has already summoned the court. Monkeys of every status line the Silent Gallery, awaiting the pleasure of the Emperor.

Deliver Hydrogen to the Zeppelin
Straight from the Iron Republic.
Another proud infernal export

With hydrogen to fill the Zeppelin, the fuel required to power it will go much further. As indeed will the Zeppelin once it has been completed. The overseer pays you your delivery fee.

Contribute Souls to the Zeppelin
The Wildweald Court needs them to make efficient workers out of its low-souled population.
The delivery is made

The monkeys pay you for your goods. You will receive a reward when the entire Zeppelin has been completed.

Game note: Working with the Delightful Adventuress will unlock a way to gather enough souls to complete the Zeppelin.

Contribute Supplies to the Zeppelin
It will be a long journey. The monkeys will need many supplies, both to survive it and to establish a new home.
The delivery is made

The monkeys pay you for your goods. You will receive a reward when the entire Zeppelin has been completed.

Game note: The Exquisite Seneschal may have a distasteful way of acquiring many of the Supplies required, for free.

Contribute Fuel to the Zeppelin
Without regular fuel and hydrogen, it won't get far.
The delivery is made

The monkeys pay you for your goods. You will receive a reward when the entire Zeppelin has been completed.

Game note: A respected visitor to the Wildweald Court can arrange a more efficient supply of Fuel from elsewhere.

Back to Port Stanton
You have nothing for the Zeppelin right now.
The monkeys continue their work

There is much of it yet to be done.

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Check on the Zeppelin
Why is the Great Exodus not yet underway?
To the East? Or to the South?

It transpires that your help meant the Zeppelin was finished far earlier than expected, and the Wildweald Court has yet to decide where to go. Both factions are likely still arguing about it in the Silent Gallery...

Flight of the Soaring Glory
The Pentecost apes are ready to depart.
Dawn of a new Empire

You watch the launch preparations of the The Soaring Glory Of Emperor Crispin IV (Greatest Of His Name), surrounded by hundreds of excited monkeys. The Emperor is carried past the guards and up the ramp on a sedan chair. After him, in uniforms of gold and purple, walk the nobility. They are followed by the mandarins, led by the Exquisite Seneschal. Next to board are the lower-souled monkeys, who-

The guards open fire with their rifles; holding back the crowd as the ramp is pulled up. A sea of betrayed faces can only stare in horror as the Soaring Glory rises into the sky and away to the East, taking with it their stockpiled food and the last of their hopes. The howl grows angrier with each new voice.

The howl grows angrier with each new voice.

Destroy the Zeppelin
The Great Exodus cannot be allowed to happen. Luckily, you know a little something about hydrogen.
Failed event
Boom!

It is a slow, careful business, crawling around the island where The Soaring Glory is being prepared.Luckily, a Zeppelin makes for a big target, and soon enough you find somewhere the guards have overlooked.

You take aim with your flare gun. Fire. The fireball catches a glancing blow on the cloth, but it's enough. As the monkeys wail and run helplessly for water, the flames work into the hydrogen below. When the explosion comes, it shakes the ground and rains down an apocalypse of shards and flame and broken dreams

White pain floods behind your eyes and gut. The bloody shard in your flesh is jagged and twisted; bone-deep, snapped. The scream goes unnoticed, lost in the noise.

Successful event

You take aim with your flare gun. Fire. The fireball catches a glancing blow on the cloth, but it's enough. As the monkeys scream, the fire spreads... works its way in. When the explosion comes, it shakes the ground and rains down an apocalypse of shards and flame and broken dreams. The sound of burning, screaming monkeys will likely haunt the rest of your days, but you escape unharmed and undetected.

Steal the Zeppelin
The East beckons. With the blessing of Storm and Salt, your crew will trade zee for sky. You will need to get behind the Emperor though, to stab him in the back...
Game note: This will end your game. But your next captain will begin with something interesting.

Return to Port Stanton
With the Zeppelin complete, your work here is done.
You leave the Soaring Glory for now

The Admiralty will not be happy about this.
