This is part nineteen of an actual play from the table that VP Quinn and Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager Joel play at. The game is run by Andrew, and the players are Quinn playing a murderous goblin, Joel playing an elven plant magician, Ryan playing a human bureaucrat and Anthony playing a human ex prince of the Hegemony and the ships captain.
In this episode the players update their characters after finishing some story points, then the characters proceed to travel through space. As they go, they come across an old and rather beat up looking Royal Navy vessel that begins to try to run as soon as it sees them. The crew, happy to be giving chase instead of running for once immediately follows them. Archibald comes up with a plan involving the preacher to slow down the ship, but doesn't tell the preacher and things get very weird for the crew very fast. Will they catch the other ship while fighting with themselves?
After the Homeworld was ruined by magical warfare, dwarves, elves, goblins, humans and trolls have left it to seek their fortune among the stars. We play a small crew of misfits just trying to keep their ship running and their mouths fed in the vast Aether Sea. Our crew inhabits a rich, high-fantasy universe of magic-powered sailing ships, steampunk gadgets, interstellar travel, intrigue, and good old piracy. Aether Sea - A World of Adventure for Fate Core was written by Ed Turner.
