“Peer into the gizzards of your prize and see if you have the guts to take it.”
It’s the 18th Century in a fantastical Earth and Atlantis has risen from the depths. Grace Deadeye Cortez aims to plunder the city and capture its fabled Star of Atlantis, an artefact that will enable her sloop of war to travel vast distances in the blink of an eye.
With Inkman, Lord Sandwich, Mad Maggie and a host of motley corsairs from a score of different nations, Deadeye will shoot and swash her way through anyone and any thing that crosses her bow. But our plucky pirate captain is in for the shock of her buccaneering life.
There’s a reason Atlantis has returned from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. An ancient god is awakening, straining against the arcane chains that were forged to bind Him. Should He break free, the whole world will feel the tidal waves of His wrath.
Captain Deadeye and her crew will need to look lively and level up if they are to defeat this antediluvian evil. Especially if they want to get mind-bogglingly rich in the process.
Skulls of Atlantis is a Gamelit piratical adventure where characters have an RPG character build. They gain experience, level up, learn new skills and improve their abilities. Deadeye can also upgrade her ship, The Albatross. The RPG mechanics are shown as stats throughout the story but are designed to work with the words, not to interrupt your reading experience.
