Event description[edit | edit source]
A hiss of horror from the lookout! The glim-lamp at the front of the ship is sputtering and arcing, fizzing with blue light. Even as you watch, the blue fades, but it's not a good omen.
|Spin them a story
"Ah, now, any lubber knows what a blue light means - "
"...rubies the size of grapes, and grapes the size of apples. Of course the island's only visible in blue light, and then only for an instant, but if we find it, my hearts, if we find it - "

The darkness in the Neath is more than the absence of light. It's a physical presence which distorts the shape of the world. Your light melts the darkness, restores sanity to the world.
