A recent discovery has been made by explorers of Ice.

A mysterious ship has washed up on neutral grounds between the mainland and the Southern Icefields. Its faded blue flags pose the question: who exactly owns this ship — Ice or Water? Icewarden has sent a Marine Investigative Force to delve deep into the bowels of the vessel, hoping to unveil its history and settle this dispute. Help us by sending in dragons to search for clues! But be careful, we hear there are ghosts among the cabins and storage rooms...

SHIP'S LOG INDEX
(daily lore)



A directory of the log of the good ship Frosty Fortune
and the fascinating discoveries of that brave crew

I. }....................... Ship's log, day the first; the missive

II. }...................... Ship's log, day the second; the wreck

III. }..................... Ship's log, day the third; the first expedition

IV. }..................... Ship's log, day the fourth; discovery, part one

IV. }..................... Ship's log, day the fourth; discovery, part two

V. }...................... Ship's log, day the fifth; peril and blood

VI. }..................... Ship's log, day the sixth; concord

VI. }..................... Ship's log, day the sixth; a cutting development

VII. }..................... Ship's log, day the seventh; revelation





NAUTICAL NOMENCLATURE ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
a guide to the tongue of the sea



Galley :
The ship’s kitchen. A brick hearth in the belly of a ship constructed of timber,
tar, canvas, and hempen rope. Because nobody wants to eat ship's biscuits all day every day.
Orlop :
The lowest deck before the bilges, the hold (on larger vessels these are separate)


Bilges :
The very lowest part of the hull interior, filled with rocks and other stuff for ballast.


Weather gage: (also weather gauge)
The most advantageous point of sail between two ships, typically in battle. If you hold the weather gage the wind is behind you, pretty much.


Poop (deck):
The aftmost (rearmost) and highest deck of a ship, where the helm (ship’s wheel) is located. In smaller ships it is absent, and the helm is located on the quarterdeck. In ships with a poop deck, the quarterdeck is afore the poop deck, and is the second-highest aft deck.


Windward:
Synonymous with weather (as in weather gage) at times, windward is the direction the wind is coming from. If you are on the windward side of something, it is toward where the wind is coming from. A more common term in use today is upwind. A ship coming from the windward direction is the ship that holds the weather gage.


Leeward:
The opposite of windward, also a’lee. When speaking of islands, the leeward side of the island is sheltered and protected, while the windward side carries the brunt of the weather.


Sheets:
Sheets are not sails, but part of the rigging! They are used to control the lower corners (clews) of a sail.


Shrouds:
Part of the standing (fixed) rigging of a tall ship, the shrouds support the masts. They can be seen prominently on the sides of a ship, symmetrically on both the port (larboard) and starboard sides. The shrouds contain ratlines which sailors use to climb the rigging.


Larboard (port):
Left, but relative at all times to the ship. Standing at the stern and looking forward, the larboard side is always the left side of the ship. Larboard is contemporary to the age of sail, while port is more modern.


Starboard :
Right, but relative as with larboard, at all times, to the ship.

NAUTICAL NOMENCLATURE ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
a guide to the tongue of the sea



Galley :
The ship’s kitchen. A brick hearth in the belly of a ship constructed of timber,
tar, canvas, and hempen rope. Because nobody wants to eat ship's biscuits all day every day.
Orlop :
The lowest deck before the bilges, the hold (on larger vessels these are separate)


Bilges :
The very lowest part of the hull interior, filled with rocks and other stuff for ballast.


Weather gage: (also weather gauge)
The most advantageous point of sail between two ships, typically in battle. If you hold the weather gage the wind is behind you, pretty much.


Poop (deck):
The aftmost (rearmost) and highest deck of a ship, where the helm (ship’s wheel) is located. In smaller ships it is absent, and the helm is located on the quarterdeck. In ships with a poop deck, the quarterdeck is afore the poop deck, and is the second-highest aft deck.


Windward:
Synonymous with weather (as in weather gage) at times, windward is the direction the wind is coming from. If you are on the windward side of something, it is toward where the wind is coming from. A more common term in use today is upwind. A ship coming from the windward direction is the ship that holds the weather gage.


Leeward:
The opposite of windward, also a’lee. When speaking of islands, the leeward side of the island is sheltered and protected, while the windward side carries the brunt of the weather.


Sheets:
Sheets are not sails, but part of the rigging! They are used to control the lower corners (clews) of a sail.


Shrouds:
Part of the standing (fixed) rigging of a tall ship, the shrouds support the masts. They can be seen prominently on the sides of a ship, symmetrically on both the port (larboard) and starboard sides. The shrouds contain ratlines which sailors use to climb the rigging.


Larboard (port):
Left, but relative at all times to the ship. Standing at the stern and looking forward, the larboard side is always the left side of the ship. Larboard is contemporary to the age of sail, while port is more modern.


Starboard :
Right, but relative as with larboard, at all times, to the ship.
