A Brief overview of Cabin Fever

Being on a ship for weeks at a time causes men to get very crabby.

Wild Cards and crew acculmulate cabin fever which will eventually cause a degradation to their abilities.

the Rough Mechanics of it

For each full 7 days since the last “Carousing” the crew must check Spirit or suffer fatigue.

Carousing does the follwing:

  • takes at least 7 days and will remove all fatigue accumulated from Cabin Fever.
  • costs a Wild Card money.
  • will generate additional side effects such as temporary stat penalities, narrative complications, additional money costs, new opportunities, etc.
  • can generate News (optional).
  • can generate Romance (optional).
