NA Fos Sailed away to china, in a little row boat My friends and I sailed to Margoria on a fishing boat, without a compass. I had wanted to go to Margoria for the last couple of days prior to this adventure. We didnt know there were ferries traveling round trip to Margoria until we actually reached land. the first leg of the journey was alot of fun. We explored islands off the coast of Velia for nodes and knowledge One of my friends took screenshots in max settings, bless his computer's heart. Me in the middle, screenshot and videographer to the right, token wizard buddy to the left. This game looks beautiful in max settings. We generally had an easy trip the first 20 minutes of the voyage. There are tons of screenshots in our discord channel of just fish and the ocean floor. towards the end of the easy section we found a cave underwater. We didnt have the lungs to go all the way in. But we did realize that some love went into making this map. From time to time I find a hidden nook in the mountains or the fields, someone cared about their work, I appreciate it. Life was good, we were immersed in the sights and subtleties of the environment, and Margoria didn't seem that far away. And then the mini map went blank. The water became choppy, and black. We were on a fishing boat and the equipment wasnt upgraded. We were moving slow. This was the first thing we saw. up until now we thought we would hit storms or the big waves in the ocean would hurt the boat somehow. Who woulda thought there were actual sea monsters in the sea. I immediately stated "We're gonna need a bigger boat". Camera/Screenshot man went into surveillance mode. Our wizard has a phobia of seeing only black when you look into the ocean, not knowing what was down there. With lower settings on you only see some grayscale shapes underwater, and they are massive and intimidating. He started freaking out, I was on the edge of losing my shish, and the screenshot guy had to lookout for sea monsters with his max setting render distance on observation mode. Luckily he did take some screenshots during the daylight portion of our giant floating mistake. These things scared the hell out of me because I couldn't see them and as the screenshot guy navigated for me (telling me to go left or right and heading straight) they would wander into my render distance. the fact that it was a piece of a ship that broke only made me dookie my pants all the more. Also as you can see here the water drowned the back portion of my little fishing boat, it did that alot. What the hell did I get us into. Waahat is that thing!? Right near the end of our screenshot time we saw this pillar sticking from the ocean floor up. I thought it was GM Island, and I will definitely find that one day when I reclaim my fishing boat back from Port Ratt, but this is apparently the boundry of the map in the ocean. we were about 1 hour away from an unblinded minimap. I dont know how to explain this next part. We decided to approach the pillar, its just so foreign in the middle of the ocean, we were curious. A loading screen happened. About 20 to 30 seconds later I was alone on my boat heading towards the pillar. Somehow my friends were floating in the middle of the ocean. Time to be the captain. I turned the boat around and sailed back towards them. On my way I ran over one of those sea monsters like a snake under a lawnmower, except the sea monster was the lawnmower. It chunked my ship to a sliver of health, I had a near miss with another sea monster before I reached my friends and scooped them from the water. While there is no footage of these few stressful moments, we do have aftermath footage. You wont hear my screenshotting friend because his recording software doesnt capture his voice, but he speaks and I make some random responses. I hope that insert works but if not here's the vanilla link () from there it took us another hour or so to reach anything resembling land. But a hop and a skip later and like magic... Port Ratt, Margoria We had alot of fun. I felt some sorta way, and so did my friends. After 2 and a half hours or so on a tiny fishing boat in a dark, deep, dark ocean, I challenge anyone not to feel some sorta way. We took the ferry back home. My boat is still there, its been about 2 months now. The wizard went through the painstaking process of building an Epheria Sailboat and maybe we'll do this again someday to get 'Going Jerelby' back home in Velia. No, I refuse to ride the ferry back to Port Ratt just to remote collect my boat, we'll do it the manly way or not at all. Only this time we'll be higher off the waves, and have cannons. Two cannons. 3/10 We should have gotten 20 mil a piece from the quests there, for all the hell we went through.
