The cry rang out from the crow’s nest of the great sailing ship, the Waverider, causing her captain to look up in confusion.
“Land?” Eric Addison sounded incredulous. “There isn’t supposed to be land here. I know these seas like the back of my hand, and there’s never been land here.”
But as the ship sailed onwards on its course it became apparent that, whatever this stretch of water had been like in times past, there was definitely land here now. An island that none of the crew remembered and that none of the shipping charts seemed to believe existed.
It was quite the irresistible mystery.
And so Captain Addison steered his ship towards that strange new land, the better to learn its secrets…
This is a fairly short game (10-12 scenes) in which the players will discover the secrets of the island that shouldn’t be there. The characters should all be among the passengers and crew aboard the Waverider during the events described in the introduction, but other than that they could be anybody.
Premade cards are provided for inspiration purposes; feel free to make your own.
The setting is probably best considered a parallel version of our own world. There will be fantasy and supernatural elements in the game, but the player characters should all be regular humans with no special powers.
