Ahoy (or other appropriate greeting)
I recently picked up Sunless Sea on Steam, on advice of a couple of friends (and learning that one of the creators used to be part of a uni society I’m technically a member of. Got to support them, don’tchaknow), and … I’m loving it. I am! I adore roguelikes that don’t punish me overmuch and let me choose whether to go hardcore or to save and explore and take risks.
I’m enjoying helping my officers find their endings- a number of them helped to an end, and I’m currently (as in, I’m making course corrections as I jot this) carting coffee to the Khan in the hope of gaining entry and picking up some ahem romantic literature to allow a lady of my acquaintance some satisfaction. You know, that sounds awfully dodgy, come to think of it …
My ship? Still a Phorcyd-Class Corvette. I could have possibly afforded a vessel with more cargo space, but it would have been slow, and I like the maneuverability my current ship offers. Instead, I picked out the best guns the navy had to offer and am merrily working my way along the zea.
Back home, I’ve a townhouse, a will, my child has already signed on, and my partner seems to be enjoying themselves well enough, though I wish she’d smile sometimes … can’t have everything, I suppose!
All in all, I suppose I’m firmly mid-game, not having completed any of the (major) stories (I think) and gradually unlocking a few stages on each long circuit of the Neath. It’s not as though the hydrogen in my hold is going to go off anytime soon, after all.
So, I’m merely making myself known, offering greetings and assuring that no, I do rather enjoy the game and have no intent of quitting it just yet. Should anyone offer comments, questions on experiences, et al, I’d be happy to field them; otherwise, I merely wish it was easier to sit and talk to some of you!
