Bilge-Rat Jones is a pirate. No, seriously; he's not just a criminal with a boat who engages in nautically-based theft, he's an actual pirate, and committed to the whole "pirate" bit. And the name "Bilge-Rat" isn't just a pirate thing; his boat is also full of rats, and they spent a lot of time in his jacket and beard. It's pretty fraggin' gross, but at least he's a pretty good smuggler and willing to provide water transport to runners.


He stuffs runners into a small hermetically sealed compartment when smuggling them. This compartment has mana vines on the inside to provide a mobile mana barrier, and is also Faraday-caged. However, the CO2 scrubber often fails (along with other things).

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Shady Smuggler You probably don't want to smuggle yourself or anything else with this guy. He's not named Bilge-Rat for nothing.
Covered In Rats He's... not very good at social things with people. Something about all the rats.
Beneath Notice He's so ratty-looking that he doesn't get searched often.
Magical Countermeasures He knows how to stop magical searches, as well as other techniques to defeat magical searches.
Fool's Luck He may not be the best smuggler, but he seems to get the job done right, somehow.
Go Down With The Ship He will ensure either the safety or death of anyone he is smuggling.
Owns A Ship He owns his own smuggling ship.
Rat Shaman He has a mystical connection with his mentor spirit, Rat.
