"Their monopoly on souls is no more! The Celestial Engine has lost her privilege for such a betrayal. It came at the most opportune time if i may dare say so. " - The Minister of Rancid Finances Welcome, Curious friends! What else is more enticing other than exploring unknown vast seas of a mechanical goddess as a sea captain? Nothing , i wager! Hunt, Trade, Steal, kill. Consume delicious cogs, the world is yours!The sea and the powers that governs her are mostly uncaring at best. A Scrawny fugitive, A Peerless Prince...all are at the mercy of the sea. Your sea captains will probably die whether from a string of horrible choices or plain old bad luck. You are a fragile little thing (Most of the time). Keep that in mind. Our current Sea Captain, A simpleminded stone man, is tracking the faint footsteps of his master which has led him to a pirate haven.

Her body is too fragile for a sudden grab to safety.You shielded her whimpering soul from a sea of wastes with your own body. For once, you felt pain, something sharp enough has managed to pierce your thick skin. It was a good pain ; better you than her.You burst out of this unclean sea. A Discarded obsidian pole has made it to the other side of your shoulder, barely missing her face by mere inches. You pulled it off effortlessly before throwing it away. Chunky, Grey blood seeping from your gaping wound. No matter , it will heal on its own...you could use a Veinstone to increase your recovery if the need arises. You have gained an affliction: Injury (1: nothing too serious or threatening. It has a very small chance to worsen) "E...Edward?

Your crew is sadly soulless, carved out or assembled to follow a certain set of commands. Their absolute obedience makes them perfect for cheap labor and sometimes slavery. The Iron queen worked your kin to death to make a wall around her domain. Curse her a thousand times.You , on the other hand, are different, you were carved out from a slab which did not belong to this world. Your Master was always secretive about your origin. If there is a goddess of glass and obsidian (Kyth) and another of fire (Mryt) ....why not be a goddess of stone? Master always dismissed such notions of yours. Oh well.You knowledge in soul sculpting is limited, A once great company called the Celestial Engine used to dominate the soul trade until they tried to steal the immortal soul of the iron queen herself. Most of their knowledge were lost after their demise.

Optional Objective: Destroy Saltso, where the mining operations on Igz are spearheaded by a woman in Lavender. This will incur the Iron queen's wrath.

You have lost x3 chunks of Veinstone (total x17)You have lost x1 wrathful page (total 4) You have gained x5 crew (total 19) You ordered them to attend their new duties. All reluctantly complied.Except one. A spontaneous discharge of bloodbolts has emerged from the crew member. Was it because you tried to shape a woman for the first time? The ill-clad devil woman came into mind during the reshaping You thought this attempt might better your novice skills. Your master never shaped a woman of stone - at least you didn't witness him doing so. Everything was experimental with her, oh you shouldn't have done that!Confusion, Fury, Unspoken yearnings...all were written in her flickering eyes. She eyed you once, before lunging at you in a blink. Her warm hands coiled around your neck with amenable prowess and strength into them..the working of the wrathful page, mayhaps? You remain silent and calm, she wasn't really hurting you. A bit painful and annoying, yes. Nothing further."Who...what am i?"

Something that was not meant to happen without proper soul infusion (or other specific means) which she lacks.The coiling grip has loosened, the scorching hatred in her eyes ceased to exist. She dropped on her knees, on the verge of weeping "So this is what i am? A contrived, feeble lie. My stone heart beats false blood powered not by a soul proper but by a glorified piece of paper."She stood up, wiping off her tears "I don't know what to call you....you have brought me to this world, You must be the one to end me.

On Officers They are special individuals on your ship offering different stat bonuses (or penalties) whether on land or in combat. Sometimes, they will have a different passive bonuses/penalties as well. They are:First OfficerGunnery OfficerChief EngineerSurgeon CookThey are not static in their nature. Further interactions may change them for the best or the worst. Follow their hopes and yearnings if you wish. They often offer a plethora of services, like a surgeon removing an affliction for an example.They all share a common feature: They can increase a specific stat depending on their nature. At first, they will require a specific oddity . The oddities need will be more costly per each stat increase.

>>3253967Playing an actual bad guy or a genuine bastard might be fun. At least watching them die would be entertaining.
>>3253986>>3253981as i have stated before, time dilation aboard causes days to stretch hence they are called sea day. Cage, the vacuous goddess who governs time, isnt really known to be precise in her duty (no matter how hard she tries to).A single sea day can be 3-6 day, a week, even a month , there is no constant >>3253994>>3253969there were at least 2 characters like so (sordid spy and delirious waste), another two are morally ambiguous (A Rightfully-accused Vagrant and A Battle-worn Veteran) but noted, i will add more evil characters
>>3254002I want to do that delirious waste
>>3254005> A Delirious waste (Husk, Living ship)>Note: Do not pick this, you will be attacked almost on sight >You are awake. Are you the last of your kind? The Goddess of Iron is no more, You found yourself under the carcass of her sworn rival. The faint cries of your mechanical soul echoes under the sea. >Ambition: A Reunion with your mechanical soul, You are the keyIt is hard mode tho
>>3254007Sounds like lots a fun tho. I dont mind death
>>3254019+1We killed ourself on easy mode. Let's see what we can do on legendary! Actually that might be fun
>>3253946>A Leathery sack>>3253967>Would you like a free roam make your own character for a change? one without ambitions railroading us to certain destinations? I always put the unclaimed soul in choose your captain post but none chose it so farIn my experience totally free roam causes the players to drop like flies>Would you like a zee-bat like mechanic? where you could detect nearby ports hidden at some cost? should i integrate it with future guardians?This might be useful>How was our current run with the Boulderous Drudge ? what did you like/hate about it?I liked its wholesomeness and interactions with the guardian, something truly rare in the setting. I hated when anons turned us into a common murderhobo instead.>should i add more naval combat encounters?I think it's fine as it is>anything else on your mind?I hate that every vote comes down to a dice roll.Also I'd like autotracking fuel and supplies.>>3254007I don't think we're quite ready for the hard mode. I'd vote for Battle-worn Veteran
>>3253981>For those who played the quest since the beginning, which captain/run/guardian/officer/character/port was your favoriteThe noble. We were rich, had loyal officers (the devil) and our actions match our personality.>Would you like a free roam make your own character for a change? one without ambitions railroading us to certain destinations? I always put the unclaimed soul in choose your captain post but none chose it so farFree roam is boring, characters need goals and flaws to make them feel alive. >Would you like a zee-bat like mechanic? where you could detect nearby ports hidden at some cost? should i integrate it with future guardians?Yes>should i add more naval combat encounters? Its fine as it is>anything you would like to see in particular in the next run? An equal amount of good and bad guys at character creation start. Maybe we could play a pirate? >anything else on your mind?A general estimate of how many sea days the fuel and supply will last
