“Watching a coast as it slips by the ship is like thinking about an enigma. There it is before you, smiling, frowning, inviting, grand, mean, insipid, or savage, and always mute with an air of whispering, "Come and find out".”

- Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

A pair of ships landed in Port Sarim, towering over the schooners and cogs which dotted the coastline, staring out into the open, endless ocean. Through the whispers of bartenders, rumours in town halls and the dried ink etched into adverts on shop windows, the promise of adventure spread.

Adventure? Yes and so much more. The promise of adventure appealed to many, but the promise of land appealed to so many more. Land meant food, riches, a new life. A better life.

New shores await.

OOC Intro


Hello and welcome to The Fatal Shore. This roleplay is focused on the colonisation of uncharted land in the East.

The colonists who will embark on this journey come from all walks on life. The richest of merchants, the poorest of farmers, the brightest of churches, the darkest of prisons.

Whatever status and possessions the colonists left behind are insignificant compared to the promises of adventure and new beginnings. What shall greet them across the sea, however, is something they cannot fathom as they traverse deeper and deeper into the unknown.

Themes include - Life on the frontier, strange lands, hostile natives, disease, starvation, murder, treachery and madness. However, should the colonists attempt to seize every opportunity, themes of glory, adventure and hidden treasure.

There IS a quest requirement - You must either have started or completed Lunar Diplomacy to access the Lady Zay, which shall be the backdrop for the initial voyage.

The Company

Granted by royal decree, the Honourable Red Stripe Trading Company have set out to place the flag of Asgarnia upon new lands, for King and Country.

A shared endeavour, both investors have put in copious amounts for the Star of Asgarnia to see the world beyond the Kharid and into oblivion.

Ships Serving in the Voyage -

HMS Bounty - An immense ship of the line which will carry the majority of the colonists and their supplies to their destination. Invested into by numerous private financiers, many profits are dependent on the survival of this vessel.

RSS Renown - A frigate which belongs to the Red Stripe Trading Co. The ship will carry the garrison provided by the Kingdom of Burthorpe to maintain order in the new colony, as well as the majority of weapons for the voyage.
