    About the adventure

    Captured by pirates, your ship's captain slain before you, your belongings stolen, you and your crewmates pressed into service... Suffice to say, your sea journey has not gone as planned. The Furnace of Virtues is not an ordinary pirate ship, and Captain Turnscrews is not an ordinary pirate. Her terrifying prison hulk is like a hellish floating mountain, its figurehead bearing the face of a demon. Turnscrews is attended at all times by her army of constructed guards, who follow her orders without question. And yet, the Captain espouses high-minded ideals about virtue, courage, and the meaning of citizenship. This place, she insists, is a school, not a prison. For the deserving, she promises freedom and a new life in a distant Haven. For the undeserving, she promises a fate worse than death. First, come the tests. Let's see what you are made of. ~~~ We will use Roll20, (for its VTT) D&DBeyond (for its character sheets/content sharing) and Discord (for voice chatting.) Battlemaps, ambient music and dynamic lighting will be provided for immersive gameplay. LGBTQ+ and beginner friendly! ~~~ This adventure is part of the Floating Haven series
