OriginEdit

A warship in the navy of Henry VIII, the Mary Rose faced it's end in 1545. After 33 years of service, the Mary Rose was engaged in a naval battle when a rogue wind caught the sails as she tried to turn in order to fire the cannons. The ship tilted at a sharp angle and, with the cannon-ports wide open, seawater began to flood the lower decks. This disaster became a tragedy as the crew were unable to escape due to the anti-boarding netting, a large hemp net strung around the deck to prevent enemy crew from boarding. There were fewer than 35 survivors out of a crew of over 400.

EffectsEdit

When contact is made with the deteriorated hemp ropes, the victim starts to become saturated starting from the feet and rising up the body. Once the water reaches the head, the victim will show all signs of drowning and will succumb to death within a minute or so. The effect is reversible by placing the rope on the ground and standing on it, representing the few who managed to overcome the netting and escape their fates.
