Background

The following accounts can be traced to a single leather-bound journal originally found in a locked wooden chest alongside a sextant-like device of indeterminate origin and a shell that matches no known species of mollusc. The chest was located in a storage room in the Legscraper’s lower levels that was described as “smelling faintly of the sea”. Subsequent attempts to locate and navigate to said room have been unsuccessful thus far. The journal details the exploits of the crew of a large sailing vessel, The Tokyo Adrift, descriptions of which are largely consistent with mid-17th century galleons.

The Trench is forty and four days deep. The reason for their appearance is unclear, as they are simply mentioned in one entry as if they had always been there. Forty and four breaths. Scholars disagree on O'Lantern's nature and relation to Captain Strongbody, who is also first mentioned in said entry after a long absence in the journal. forty and four breaths to take a dead man home. One prominent theory is that Captain Strongbody died and was brought back to life by O'Lantern, and although necromantic magic was uncommon, it is certainly possible, if not probable. Forty and four days to take a dead man out. O'Lantern was party to the events of 1667, during which ey is mentioned consoling eir Captain before I swam the entire distance twice. Although what effect this had on his own actions is unknown, as the bottom of the page has been ruined by sea spray- or, perhaps, tears. once to take him to my home, once to bring him to his.
