Hey Oscar Captain, can I fill the crew in on some of the details we missed by smashing the window rightaway? I mean, who’s that guy with the hook swimming in the water and why is he swimming anyway?

Go ahead, shipmate. I was wondering that myself. My memory fails me on who he is.

Now that you’re making me think about it:

  The reefs seem a little larger than you thought before.

He made the ship sail into the reefs and is now getting the heck out of Dodge?

So maybe we need to drop the anchor?

No mention of anyone with a hook, so far. One of Lafond’s men, perhaps?

Shipmate…?  Embarassed
What happened to the intrepid heroine with the damp chemise clinging to her gorgeous body?
Oh well… at least I’m not cast as a seagull.

I’ll fill you in, no problem. I have to replay some parts first and copy the text.

She’s disguised as a cabin boy Wink

When we meet Andy Crulley in the intro, we have two turns to do something. We can clobber him over the head with the coffer twice. We can scream for help Or we can examine him: Smile

> The pirate’s unsavoury face is crisscrossed with scars, and those not from shaving nicks, to judge by his scruffy beard. A hook replaces one of his hands at the end of a torn black sleeve.
> ask man about hook
> He snarls at the memory, “Twere bit off by a monster crocodile”.

I’ll save the bit about why he is swimming for later. We should explore the ship before trying to get off.

Damn! That’s right, I forgot. So I tried just now to climb the ladder in my frock, to see how the pirates would react to my presence, but no dice, the game won’t let me.

I’m on the deck, let me try:

>Remove shirt
You remove the shirt, exposing your elbows.
  A sailor notices the roundness of your body through the lace of your chemise. “A woman,” he gasps, “free, aboard this ship!”
  It’s been rather a long time since any of the crew have dealt with the fairer sex, and they are a bit rough, despite Rodney Quick’s exhortations.

    ***  You have died   ***

Gasp

Oopsie! Frown

So much for The Falcon’s assurance that if anything goes wrong, I should turn to Cookie (= Rodney Quick): He’s quite deaf but capable, he’ll see you through.

HA!

Okay, so he also told me to stay below…

So basically, I skipped a few deaths by immediately putting on those clothes?

What happens if we waste 20 turns by waiting? (Or however long we have until the ship crashes into the reefs - I’ve totally convinced myself that’s going to happen)

Totally convinced but wrong.  Tongue

I figure, if you wait, and wait… you’ll die eventually, that’s why the death is welcomed in these kind of games anyway (it’s really a half-real time game, I guess some parts are done in the background nevertheless of what you do, and some are triggered by your actions/solving puzzles).

Alright then. Let’s examine further.

It does have the feeling of death around every corner, but it’s actually quite forgiving. I’m not even sure you can get yourself into an unwinnable position, aside from doing stupid stuff like throwing items into the sea.

Main Deck
  It is a deceptively quiet evening on the ship, the pirates singing low shanties as they repair cannon, twist ropes and sharpen daggers. The mainmast casts an inky shadow over the canvas screening the hatch. A tangled mass of rigging hangs down from the mast, like many rope ladders woven together.
  The reefs seem a little larger than you thought before.
  Two large barrels stand near the stair to the foredeck.

>X PIRATES
Captain Jamison’s crew are a ragged, toothless bunch, all sporting jagged scars. Despite their abhorrent appearances, they call friendlily to each other.

>X MAINMAST
The mast stands tall and powerful, shrouded in the rigging.

>X RIGGING
The mast stands tall and powerful, shrouded in the rigging.

>X BARRELS
The two open barrels contain rum and water, you can tell by the smell of each. They are identical but for the dark stains around the mouth of the rum barrel.

>I
You have a slab of pork and your reticule (hanging from your wrist). It seems that your reticule contains a cotton frock, a missive, a jewelled brooch, an invitation, smelling salts and a banknote. You are wearing a shirt, breeches, your kid slippers and a linen chemise.
