23.10 Ship Maps and Mapping
Maps are used to find one's way! Yes, this is true on ships too. If you have a map on your ship, and the map is in the ship's Cartographer's desk, then properly skilled crewmembers (in the Helm or Watch specialisations) will be able to take SHIP BEARINGS to the place on the map, which means they will be able to tell distance and direction, within limits. SCRIBE map while in some harbours, makes a blank map ready for use. Blank maps are for sale from Maelstrom. The 'mapscribe' ability is at helm rank IV. SHIP MAP LIST while shipboard, shows your ship's maps. PUT MAP IN DESK adds map to ship's collection in the Cartographer's Desk. GET MAP FROM DESK removes map from ship's collection. SHIP BEARINGS to 'to' is the place you're wanting to locate. Use of maps generally requires a Cartographer's Desk. If you do not have one, ask Tecton, clearly identifying the exact numerical identifier of the ship in question, and your willingness to part with twenty five thousand gold in the process.
