It starts with a voyage. You all have your various reasons for being here. Some of you may be ships crew, some may be passengers on their way elsewhere, and some of you may be escorting cargo or other valuables for consignment. The Sea Griffon had seen better days, but you were expecting no trouble as you departed the Ivory Coasts. Unfortunately, about four days out of Freeport, an unexpected squall slammed into the Sea Griffon. What age had started, the storm drove the final dagger. The surviving crew and passengers fought valiantly, knowing survival rested in everyone’s hands. The Sea Griffon was afloat, and could sail, but everyone knew it was her final voyage. Now you have moored out from one of the small spits of land that dot the ocean, unloading heavy cargo to be fetched at a later time, and making what repairs you can to keep the ship afloat as long as you can.
