The cry goes up: Drownies in the water! The pale faces of the drowned-dead bob up like lamps. They're singing...
Interactions[edit | edit source]
|Drown out their song with the roar of the engines
Drownies are drawn to fear like pickpockets to crowds. Stoke the engines as hot as they'll go: it will use fuel and may damage the ship, but you'll drown out their wretched song.
||Steel and fire
Your engines thunder. The Drownies circle, but the poisonous sweetness of their song is almost lost in the din. At last they tire and sink below, waving as they go.
|Ignore it as best as you can
Stop your ears. Set to work. You can't spare the fuel.
|A dreaming doom
The song of the Drownies wearies the arm and dismays the mind. Draw in a breath, and you can smell the muck of the sea-floor. Someone's gone overboard! Sleek heads gather round the flailing shape, and then all of them are gone.
