Underwater Crate



Encounter Conditions

Ocean Eyes (and Ocean Song?) active, if you had agreed to find the arms dealer's lost shipment as part of Lo's Investigation

Initial Text

As you move along the lakebed, your comm beeps, making a strange muffled sound in the water. It seems that you're pretty close to the coordinates that the arms dealer gave you… but this is dozens of meters deeper than you remember him telling you. Maybe your comm isn't as waterproof as they advertise.

Sure enough, though, there's a small hill of sand and rock nearby. One of the fish creatures rests behind a rock nearby. Following its gaze, you see a crate half-buried on the far slope of the hill.

Summary of Choices

  1. Charge the fish person - fight a Deep Hunter
  2. Approach in peace - with Ocean Eyes gain deteriorating shipment, otherwise fight a Deep Hunter
  3. Steal it - Fight Deep Hunter and gain deteriorating shipment if you win
  4. Swim away - Walk away
