Meanwhile, the captain of the Anemic is said to be looking rather pale from all the excitement.

The Auric relayed a radio message from the Optic. It seems the Optic saw the Sadistic ram the Masochistic repeatedly. Evidently, the Masochistic took no measures to avoid the situation.

The Frantic is reported hurrying to the scene.

While the Icelandic and the Nordic are chilling out, It was noticed that the Caloric is sitting rather low in the water.

The company have just announced the launch of a new economy version of their most popular boat design. The chairman's wife named it the 'Fanfic'.

The EIDETIC, recalling a previous occurrence, has begun feeding cargo to the CALORIC to increase her flotation.

The Gymnastic thinks more exercise would be a better cure.

The good ship Bibliographic is listing! Her Captain has put out an S.O.S.

The Nihilistic knows that they're all doomed to die horribly, and didn't even bother to respond. Perhaps that's because they can see the Voyeuristic on their radar - they're sure to get there in plenty of time, but will they get involved? Nuh-uh.

SS Opportunistic is on the way, but will get there far too late. Nevermind - salvaging flotsam and jetsam is more their thing anyway.

As of today, there is still no one that understands messages from the Cryptic.
