* BoringButPractical: The Swivel Guns on the Dragon Chaser. 4D6 Damage. Awesome range. But all you'd be able to use for the round and limited to where the boat is during grid combat. And practically all the PCs can effectively use to damage other ships in naval combat.

Added DiffLines:

* PerfectPoison: "Tsukiko has made contact with a vile and deadly flower. It's poison instant death to whoever touches it. This flower is absolute doom and Tsukiko has only 6 seconds left to live." Oh wait, it's just a pretty flower. Smells nice.

* ArmiesAreEvil: [[DefiedTrope Defied]] by Vincent, who refuses to even call his expedition an army or even a military force. Yes, they're all very well armed, but the continent is also very dangerous. The entire party also agrees that waging open war with the Remnants is generally a bad idea.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Revana Te Ra means "Land of the Ancients."


* EasingIntoTheAdventure: Not so bad as [[Roleplay/ANewAge A New Age]], but each PC got an introductory map and scene along with the Dragon Chaser, which then set off with Tsukiko at the helm. It was roughly six hours in game before serious combat happened.

* EpicFail: Lyon, Tsukiko's Player, ''fell asleep'' during ''Maiden Voyage.'' To be fair though, he did just return from a long and stressful day at work. Still, the rest of the group was too busy laughing to really be mad at him for falling asleep.
* LeeroyJenkins: It's a D&D party, expect lots of this.
** The moment the Dragon Chaser got close enough to a pirate ship in ''Maiden Voyage.'' Both Tsukiko and Arthur jumped on board to ship to take on the crew. While the ship was still moving and functional. And it ''worked.''
