Si desidemur, depressi summus!
~Naval motto, meaning "If we sink, we're sunk!"
Ships ! Who cares about all that landlubberin'? The life of a seabeast is th' sort ye want t' experience! Aye, but ye can't just join up any ol' ship! When ye first join th' Imperial Navy, th' clerks at th' office measure ye up - height, weight, distance between th' ears, tail length, favourite colour o' fruit... An' then, with all this information, they takes it an' go compare it t' other bits o' paper an' th' like, an' with all this knowledge, they puts ye on a completely random ship. Pers'nally, guv, I thinks they use a dartboard.
Luckily, thanks t' th' fine blokes down at th' Court House?, ye can request a transfer t' any other ship ye like! So it's in yer best intentions t' look at all th' different ships t' choose from.

OOC/Out of Character:Edit
The Navy is one of many occupations on the VI and tends to be where the most roleplaying is had. While in the Navy the player gain access to a special ship-specific board as well as the normal boards, where they can converse and join in Ship-Wide plots. The player's ship will generally be in port for one week, and leave for sea for another or until the Captain chooses to raid or explore.
During this time at sea you will be unable to access the markets, bank, and shore minigames. Plan your funds accordingly!
