Actions Requirements Effects
A picnic at the Stones

No, they haven't brought their own picnic materials. That's your job, isn't it? Aren't you in charge? They certainly seem to think so.

Too quiet?

Your decaying charges return cheerful and a little tipsy, singing alarming Napoleonic-era drinking songs, chucking pebbles at bats. "Captain!" one hails you. "Rocks! I adore rocks. But now I am bored of rocks. Take us somewhere else."

A visit to the Three Graves

The island to the north-west has what might be graves. Or treasure-troves. Or follies created by the villagers to confuse you. Anyway, it'll do as a tourist destination.

Sombre silence

"Four graves now, Captain. Four graves. Let's go."

Rare event (50%)
Chattering excitedly

"We saw a Drownie, Captain! That's good luck! ...well, in Venderbight we say it's good luck. There's different kinds of dead, eh? Different kinds of dead. What a lovely trip. Where are we going now?"
