- noun The small area out to sea, comprising all of
"H.M.S. Essex" plus the 'vicious rocks' room. Sometimes known
as the Galleon. See pirates.
- noun The enduring legend which has arisen in all
incarnations of MUD to the effect that "H.M.S. Essex" can
somehow be refloated and used to move out to sea. In fact, this
really could be achieved with a sufficiently monumental effort (although,
unfortunately, this effort would be required by the programmer
rather than by the players).
