The Crimson Beast of Winter lurks in your hold. This is not a healthy situation for you, your ship, or your crew.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
The First Delivery

The creature calls for you. It is time to begin.

A hunger that can never be satiated

Mr Sacks is waiting, clutching what looks like a leg of lamb. The meat is rotten. The bone is well chewed.

“A fool sought a name that devours. It devoured him. A lifetime's wealth, wasted on cravings that can never be satiated. When all was eaten, he stripped the meat from his fingers in search of solace. Still the hunger gnawed and screamed in his belly. He thought this pitiful offering of poison might free him. Debts are not so easily paid.”


Game note: Deliver this to Khan's Heart or Pigmote Isle.


Go to either location and an option will appear on the island to continue the story.

Note: Delivery to Pigmote Isle may be impossible, depending on it's storyline progression.

The Second Delivery

The creature calls for you once again.

A prize that became a curse

Mr Sacks produces a jewelled bird. “The thief thought it would bring her riches. Perhaps it would. But when the Gracious Widow and the Cheery Man both covet what you stole, mere money ceases to be of concern. To offend one or make an enemy of the other? She sought a third way. A moment of inspiration that came too late.”

“We want no part in this feud. Settle it.”


Game note: Take this to the smugglers of the Isle of Cats to favour the Widow, or the Cheery Man's agent on Mutton Island.


Go to either location and an option will appear on the island to continue the story.

Note: Delivery to Mutton Island may be impossible, depending on it's storyline progression.

The Third Delivery

The Beast stirs in the hold. Your final assignment awaits.

A life that was never lived

Mr Sacks is staring at a small wooden box as you enter the hold. Inside, wrapped in a few pitiful scraps of velvet, is a lock of blonde hair and a set of teeth. Carefully polished. Barely used.

“The winter was harsh. The fire went cold. Later, the mother wished to forget. A convenient tragedy.”


Game note: Deliver this to Avid Horizon, in the North.


A new option will appear at the Avid Horizon.

Mr Sacks! Take my apologies.

You've given too much. This has to end. What is a promise worth? Hopefully this will be enough.


Game note: This will end your Service, though not amicably.

Parting of the season

The Crimson Beast of Winter accepts your offering with the poorest grace. The damage left in the wake of its departure will not easily be fixed.

This ends the event.
