Port description[edit | edit source]

There is a vast sorrow in their empty eyes.

Story description[edit | edit source]

Two basalt beasts, cathedral-sized. They frown eternally at each other across the black waves. The north one carries the remnants of an encampment, fraying and tattering in the wind.

A supply dock stands empty below.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Pick over the encampment

From time to time, some entrepreneur attempts to continue the disassembly of the Salt Lions. It never ends well. But perhaps they've left something.


A steady breeze blows from the North: ozone and ice. The false-stars prickle above. The Salt Lions wait for their end.

Rare event (50%)

A barrel of Murgatroyd's Fungal Crackers. A sack of coke. A tear-stained Bible. An odd slick of blood. Take what you can, and leave.

Salt's Rites

Into the zee

"Moist wide eyes"
Game note: You'll need Salt's Attention to continue. You can gain it in Whither, among other places.

"Unexpected grace"
Put a blemmigan ashore

The island isn't entirely sheer rock. Just mostly. Blemmigans have populated harsher environments.

Scenting something familiar?

The blemmigan scales the face of the north lion, squeezing fine tendrils into the narrowest of cracks, pressing on to the Unmakers' abandoned encampment. You leave it groping blindly at the laces of a tent, twittering softly.

Compile a Port Report

Nothing remains. Witness.

An end

Even time has halted, here. Who comes to survey the ruins?
