Narrow is the Way
- Oka River
- Horror Factor: 4
- Conditions: Overcast.
Turning onto the Oka River at the ruins of Nizhniy Novgorod is more difficult than expected. While the rivers are much wider since the Great Cataclysm the ruins of the once great city peeks out from beneath the surface creating a treacherous mega-crete reef. Fortunately, Steelbrok and Radeclife are able to help find a way through but the going is extremely slow. On a few occasions the boat gets stuck in a narrow canal or scrapes bottom.
Just as the group is about to clear the outskirts of the former city and settle into more smooth sailing the ship shudders as one of the rotos hits an old steel girder with the horrifying screech of metal on metal. The ship still moves, but makes a terrible racket. Palach can feel the boat list slightly to the left as the mangled rotors spin unevenly.
It’s possible to press onward, but the damaged rotor does need some work.
