Passenger’s Log: Saint Calliope’s Day

“Our full boat dropped down into the waves, oars and harpoons spiking up in all directions, and I was left alone on the Haniver. As if in response to the launch, a great humpback whale gave a vast, twisting leap from the depths of the ocean, not far from our position.”

Sailors Card, Mexianus, Jumble, Corona, Derrick, Cuddlebeam and Brendan joined the hunt, taking four Oars and three Harpoons along.

Encounter: A benign Humpback Whale with Speed 5, Danger 2, Yield 2 and Uncommonness 5. Corona is this Encounter’s Leader and the Encounter starts with 8 Maneuver Energy and 6 Power Energy.

I make a flanking maneuver. The humpback whale should now have a speed of 4.

I make a flanking maneuver too. Humpback at speed 3. Harpooneers should wait until all 4 sailors with oars flank.

I make a flanking maneuver. Humpback Speed = 2.

I make a flanking maneuver. Humpback Speed = 1

Someone else should get an oar and flank so that it’s a sure kill.

No, We’ve got 3 folks left,  and I suspect at least one person will miss the window.
