The Crossing of the Devil's Shroud
Knowing he'll need specialised help if he wants to cross the Shroud, Ramsey seeks out additional crew members and a ship. He visits Magpie, the Shipwright, and buys a tiny vessel for this voyage to cross the Shroud. Then, he ends up meeting with Mercia in a dusty library, and Shan in a pub. Rathbone, an acquaintance of his, also agrees to join him in his adventure.
After days sailing through what felt like literal hell, Captain Ramsey and his crew of the Magpie's Wing make safe entrance into the then unnamed and uncharted Sea of Thieves, devoid of any human civilization. They discover the art of those long-dead people, venture into caves and ruins, explore wrecks, chart and note everything they can, take or bury everything they can't take.
