Location Requirements

Event description[edit | edit source]

A light grows in the far south-west. It begins like a distant bonfire, but very rapidly, it becomes brighter, brighter. It looks remarkably like sunrise. Some of your crew fall to their knees: others duck behind cover or shield their eyes. One cries, "Dawn Machine waking!"

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Take cover

Keep your eyes on the ground. This is something uncanny.

Safety in darkness

Light sheets over you. Your hair crackles as if a storm were rising. You squint your eyes shut, but the radiance around you is bright enough that you see the pink of your eyelids...

The light fades, suddenly. Men and women cry out, curse. One weeps.

Look around you, but not directly at the light

Anything like sunlight is rare, down here. What will you see?

All the colours

All the colours rise in the rocks, the water, the crystal veins of the roof. The Unterzee is a rich grassy emerald: the faces of your crew flash clear and and strong. You have seen nothing like it since you left the Surface. In this place, it is utterly wrong.

The light fades, suddenly. Men and women cry out, curse. One weeps.

Look into the light

Curiosity is deadlier than any number of sharks.

The light fades, suddenly. Men and women cry out, curse. One weeps.

The light fades, suddenly. Men and women cry out, curse. One weeps.
