Step lively, jackies! There's a beam wind and a race tide, and the duke's treasure cog flying to lee!

The action extends below the waves, too, as this book also reveals the secrets of underwater adventuring and exploration - rules for traveling, fighting, and casting spells underwater, new spells, new magical items, and a new character kit, the fathomer.
