|Roused at Midnight|
Trigger conditions[edit | edit source]
Roused at Midnight is triggered at zee if you have the following:
Story description[edit | edit source]
As the first watch ends, shouts for'ard rouse you! Your bo'sun's face is grim as you emerge on deck. “We lost one. Weighted hisself with pans and went overboard. Took Cook's best kettle, too. Morale is worsening, Captain.”
Interactions[edit | edit source]
|Distribute an extra rum ration
Zailors are rarely ungrateful for grog.
It hasn't helped with discipline, but the mood aboard is perceptibly better.
|Place a guard on the cookware
Sometimes, it's best just to be seen doing something practical.
|A confused response
This isn't exactly what your crew expected. But you won't be left eating food raw! Even so far from London, there are standards which must be maintained!
|Address the crew
Remind that all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well, if only they have courage.
|An unsuccessful homily
Men and women scratch and yawn. A scrawny cat licks itself indelicately. You catch the bo'sun picking his nose. Have they heard this one before?
You're on good form today. You remind them of their bravery, their honour, the glory which will be theirs on the return to London. By the end of the speech, you've almost convinced yourself.
