Actions Requirements Effects Notes
There is nothing to be gained here.
A quiet departure
No one sees you go...
Raise your own flag
The Chelonians are savage ghouls who live in a dead turtle. The Khaganians are decadent cowards who can't hold a kingdom together. London is the sole bright light of civilisation in the Neath. Perhaps you should point these things out.

Rare successful event (50%)
A proud Imperial victory
Neither set of foreigners is impressed by your characterisation of them. The Chelonian huntress in charge hurls her harpoon, and you duck just in time. A complicated three-way battle commences! The Chelonians flee when their leader falls, and the Khaganians withdraw in good order. You find enough loot on the corpses to consider the occasion a victory. The Chelonian leader's eyes are strange: the colour of the deepest zee, more beast than human... "Take one of those," the bo'sun suggests. You look dubious. He shrugs. "You'll be glad of it. Call it scientific, if you like."
Side with the Khaganians
They may be foreign, but at least they're halfway sophisticated.

Successful event
A victory
The Chelonians are a fierce crew, but with your assistance, the Khaganians send them running...
Side with the Chelonians
They may be uncouth, but at least they're brave.

Failed event
The Chelonians are fierce fighers, but the Khaganians have the discipline, and the hand-guns...
Successful event
With battle-screams and razor-tipped harpoons - and your help - the Chelonians rout the Khanate privateers! -
