23.13 Death at Sea
(See HELP DEATH, HELP SHIPS, HELP SEAFARING) Sea death's not all bad! How often do you get your bacon scooped out of the fire by helpful sea spirits? Seriously now. Death at sea can be far less troublesome if you simply make preparations ahead of time, and of course remember what to do in the not-too-gruesome eventuality of your sea borne demise. Preparation ----------- Go to the ship of your choice. Be at the bow. Then: PERFORM SEAPRAYER RITUAL If it goes well, you'll know that this will be the place to which the sea spirits will return you after death. The ritual location will be remembered forever and does not have to be renewed unless, of course, you change your mind. One limitation here is important: the ritual depends on your continuing to maintain at least boarding privileges on the ship in question. If you are no longer able to board the ship, then your attempts to pray to the sea spirits on death will be to no avail. When Death Comes ---------------- Resurrection? Triggers allergies for some people. Immolation? Who wants to smell like barbecue? EMBRACE DEATH? That's so 700AF. PRAY TO SEA SPIRITS All the truly cool are doing it. Yes, if you have performed your seaprayer ritual successfully, then when you die, you will return to the place of that ritual if you simply PRAY TO SEA SPIRITS. Good stuff, eh? Oh yes. It may not work, though. If you are no longer able to board the ship, then your prayer will leave you at the same place as most everybody else: "Outside the Cave." How could it be that you are no longer able to board the ship where you performed the seaprayer ritual? Maybe you had a lover's spat, and your ex-pal has taken you off the boarding list? Maybe the vessel was sold. Maybe you quit the organisation that owns it. Many possibilities there. (See HELP DEATH, HELP SHIPS, HELP SEAFARING)
