It's a Saturday and we're at 'The Sovereigns' for session 8 of 50 Fathoms.
Location: The Teeth.
Upon returning to 'The Delilah' after out meeting with Tressa we spot a glow emanating from the flooded city below. The waters clear and we can now see the wreck of the Carcanus.
We know that a prize awaits us aboard the wreck, thanks to Tressa.
Backstab attempts to swim down, but it's too deep. So we decide to send Mongrel. Mongrel rapidly returns and informs us that a pack of sharks surrounds and circles the wreck.
We taunt a shark to the surface and attack it. this causes a bloody churn in the water, but does not clear the waters like we hoped.
So, instead, we concoct a cunning plan...
We know that the sails are of value, we cannot reach them.
So Win uses here magic to convince a shark to help us. The shark cannot get the sail, so we instruct it to bring the entire mast to us. The shark returns to us holding the mast in its massive jaw like a dog holding a stick!
We lash the mast to our ship and detach the sails. The sails are leathery and turn out to be made of sharkskin!
We attach the sails and depart. The sails enhance our handling.
We press on and make good time as we 'cut through' Torath Ka. During this leg of the journey we spot a lot sea creatures and crocodiles close to the surface. We hear 'things' knock and scrape against the hull of The Delilah as we progress.
We then leave Torath Ka behind and after a few more days, we arrive at 'Victoria'.
As we enter the port we see that British flags (of a sort) fly everywhere.
After docking and disembarking we enter the settlement and discover a statue of 'Angus McBryde' in an empty fountain. Curiously, at the feet of the statue are small figures of what appear to be Egyptians.
Searching around we find Captain Domingo's ship and approach, the captain is not aboard. So we decide to go and have a meal and after an hour Captain Domingo joins us.
We spend the night discussing our next steps in rescuing Domingo's brother from Coaker Island.
It turns out that Coaker Island is basically one big penal colony where the prisoners are used to mine precious iron ore.
Coaker Island has 500 guards and 1 guard per 30 prisoners. So that's a lot of prisoners.
During our discussion, we decide our best course of action is to acquire Kieran Imperial uniforms and infiltrate the island.
I play, I paint.
