"We sighted Mt Nomad again today, still afloat but listing, her dark glass flanks scored and pitted from the cannon-fire in our previous encounter. This will be the last battle. This monster has harrowed the seas too long."

You'll meet pirates, monsters, ill-tempered customs officers, many of them interchangeable. But some of your enemies will flee from you, to change and grow as part of a larger arc until you can finally hunt them down. Perhaps they'll become your obsession: perhaps you'll risk everything to end them.

Neutral Ships[edit | edit source]

Rarely, you may encounter ships that aren't particularly hostile towards you. These ships can be attacked and sunken for loot, which is considered piracy. Sinking a neutral ship will net you a Cache of Curiosities. Neutral ships appear in the form of blue Tramp Steamers; reskins of the Ligeia-Class Steamer, and will have unique names (Among observed names are "Salamander" and "Tigerish"). Neutral ships will be set to reach a certain port, and once within proximity of the docks, will despawn, because they do not have a proper animation for docking.These ships are currently very buggy, and may disappear if provoked. If attacked, a Tramp Steamer will retaliate, but they are otherwise unresponsive to the player or other monsters/ships.
