Abandon Ship features a procedurally generated world, where you take on quests, deal with random events, challenge enemy ships, and of course, try to fight the good fight against the Doomsday Cult. You can explore the world as part of a story, telling of the (mis)adventures of the Severed One (your captain), a renegade member of the Doomsday Cult, or as part of a combat campaign, where you try to find your sister, captured by pirates.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The known world is where abandon ship takes place. The known world is a continental-sized collection of islands spanning across multiple biomes. The known world was dicovered by the empire. Ships had to pass the great divide to reach the known world, the great divide is an immense ocean to the east of Land's end and the wild sea. Whilst the majority of the known world is inhabited by the empires' population, smaller tribes outdating the empire are also present. The known world is home to multiple powerfull beings, altough it's unknown if they excist outside the known world. The known world is divided into 15 regions, which were likely named when the empire started colonizing the continent.

Regions[edit | edit source]

The map is divided into 15 regions, which contain a set number of randomly generated maps. These can contain random ports, points of interest, and have one of five possible biomes, three water roughness states, and six weather states. Each map has at least one unique event and island. Each map is connected to one or more other regions by gates, which can be opened after interacting with the specified amount of points of interest. The known world includes the following regions:

  • The Great Founding: The core province. It contains Landfall, the first major colony set up by settlers from The Empire, and fast grew into their capital. It remains one of the only islands to still keep to the old ways since The Empire fell. Another notable location is Devilrock, once an Empire mining island, barren on the surface, but astoundingly rich in minerals below. The miners discovered a deep vein of metal, but learned the very hard way that it reacted violently to water. Half the mountain was vaporised.
