From: A ship in the night

The ship's arrival and cargo appear on no dock papers. The striking dockers and the neddy men don't need to know about it. But someone needs to unload the sealed crates. Muscle and speed, as well as discretion.

Crates full of bottles full of souls

The crates are heavy. [...] You work quickly and the ship is soon unloaded. [...]

An elegant hansom draws up and a pair of devils emerge. [...] you see one of the devils open a crate to check the contents. Bottled souls. Must be a thousand here.


Oh no!

You set too fierce a pace early on in the night. Now, your arms ache. Your lungs burn. You're losing your grip and... splash! A crate goes into the water. The ship's crew look on with undisguised horror. You run for it.
