Blight Seas Fleet

The lumbering bulk of the Abominable-class battleship, Undying Tyrant, burst through the clouds of dense smoke with its guns belching fire. Thick, dark water crashed against its armoured prow and sent great flurries of spray up into the air that would have drenched its decks, were they not deflected by the black wings of the wrought iron vulture that perched atop its bow.

From his vantage point, high up on the bridge, Captain Fuller-West surveyed his officers as they directed shambling hordes of mindless seamen to load and operate the Tyrant’s secondary batteries. Clumsily, but tirelessly and with the strength of several men they worked, valuable Reagent coursed through their veins and animated their patchwork bodies. This was the miracle of the Empire’s great Corpse Technicians, not resurrection, but corpse-slaves that were no more alive than a steam engine or repeating rifle and no less expendable.

Blight Seas Fleet is a naval skirmish game set in a post-apocalyptic, dark fantasy world with technology broadly comparable to the turn of the century. Great fleets of pre-dreadnought battleships and their supporting vessels slug it out for control of the world’s dwindling resources, chief among which are the materials necessary for the manufacture of Reagent. Only this esoteric substance allows the newly established field of Corpse Engineering to maintain forces capable of sustaining the war effort.
