Crossing The Unterzee

value of cards and options

The Broad Unterzee seems to be intended as a juggling act between increasing Approaching Journey's End to 9 while controlling troubled waters. However, troubled waters is not a serious threat and can be ignored, so we need only concern ourselves with increasing Approaching Journey's End (and the value of any rewards gained in the process).

Note this is a work in progress, and change points have not been double checked. storylets in italics; note that no point in using a card with fewer change points than these).
