Fighting Fantasy Monday (Except on Friday): Seas of Blood (XI)

[There was some discussion about regaining STAMINA. In Seas of Blood this can only be done by resting - 1 day per point of STAMINA. Seems extortionate to me, but I took the liberty of resting for 3 days to get us back to 10 STAMINA.]

Eastern Rim won by a slim margin.

You sail onwards, passing the bleak red dunes of the Eastern Rim's Sea of Fire - so named because of the intense colouring of the infertile earth. Roll three dice. If the result is less than your CREW STRENGTH, add 5 days to your LOG. If the result is equal to or greater than your CREW STRENGTH, add 6 days to your LOG. One evening, with the sun setting over the sea to the west, you notice a phosphorescent wreck in the water to the side of the Banshee. Heaving to, you drop anchor and dive overboard for a closer look. You see a merchant vessel, lying in shallow water, with two large holes smashed in its hull - one in the stern and the other in the bow. Which will you swim into, the hole in the stern (turn to 44) or the bow (turn to 33)?

Log: 25 Days
Gold: 183
Slaves: 3
Crew Strength: 15
Stamina: 10 (out of 19)


  1. #44. All the high status areas of a sailing ship (and thus all the lootables) are usually to the rear.

  2. i agree with Chris, to the stern!

  3. No Provisions? How revolutionary!

  4. I say Bow (33). Simply because I'm hopped up in allergy meds and 'Bow" sounds funny.

  5. The captain's quarters would be in the stern, so I vote #44 as well.

  6. 44.

    Aaarr, to the stern me buckos!

    (the verification word was "hallych" - sounds like some kind of undead monster to me!)

    Gotta be the Bow
