Midshipman Simpson's Snotty Society
presents, for your Internet pleasure...
Life at sea can be rough.
At times lonely. And with someone like Jack Simpson around, downright Hell.
Here's any good subject of King George's opportunity to make a difference in the life of someone in His Majesty's Navy during the Napoleonic Wars.
TIMES ARE HARD.
How, you're probably asking, can you, a landlubber (someone who gets ill at the very idea of a ship "pitching and waling") help?
By choosing to become either a Patron Saint, OR adopting a particular duty in regard to a seaman close to your heart. You define your duties, and make sure that everything is shipshape. We'll just post a running list for your reference (and Simpson's) here.
How do I apply for Patron Sainthood?
Any good seafarer will tell you that when a bad storm comes up or before charging courageously into battle, he looks to his Patron Saint for guidance.
Patron Sainthood a little too much responsibility?
Rather take on a lesser duty?
*Maker of Styles' poultices...
*Fisher for the Compass...
*Keeper of the Chicken...
*Discerner of the "good frogs"...
If any of these sound good to you, or you've created your own title and duty, this is the job for you. Infinite in number (it takes a lot of men to keep a ship going).
Besides, knowing Simpson, he's never going to be satisfied with the job you're doing, especially if you're doing it well.
Check The Duty List, and see who's watching over the crew these days.
