Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Evict stowaways
Rats may have gotten into the hold. Tiny oxygen-stealing thieves! Into the deep with them.
Your crew upend boxes and tear open bags. They prod behind panels and heat up pipework. Your bo'sun points to the last unopened crate. "There - I'm sure I heard an eek! They're in there!" The crate is ejected through the airlock. That'll show them.
Advanced alteration value probably needs examination. Game note: Find oxygen. Quickly.

Game note: This will cost you a crate of Supplies.

Jettison a wounded crewman
His laboured breathing is doubling his intake.
The clang of the airlock reverberates through the ship. His watery struggle is brief.
Advanced alteration value probably needs examination. Game note: Find oxygen. Quickly.

Game note: You will lose a crewman.

Retreat to your cabin
Lie still. Rest. Preserve what little air you have. The crew must manage until you wake.
You ignore the hammering on your door. Your bed is sodden with sweat. Is your breathing quickening? Check - a hand to your chest. It rises and falls with your heartbeat, which is to say, quickly. Take only shallow breaths. Your crew are back at the door. One of them is sobbing.
Advanced alteration value probably needs examination. Game note: Find oxygen. Quickly.

Game note: This will increase your Terror.
