Captain Prestcotton's Excursion to Find a Feudworm [Juri-E-20193]
The journal originally served as a means of documenting progress on the journey to finding a mythical creature known as a Feudworm, but was later confiscated and protected as legal evidence.
The document has been archived in the Royal Library under documents accessible only to Custodians or civilians who have been granted permission and are under supervision.
A mechanical copy has also been created and stored in the Queen's Private Chambres to facilitate analysis and serve as a substitute should the original become unusuable.
It is now under evidential protection and may no longer be altered by anyone.
Failure to comply will lead to persecution under offence EE3-F which is for the obstruction of justice through forgery and may lead to imprisonment in a Hold, potentially even as a Class 1 Offender.
On the first of Fatum in the year 48, Captain Viviana A. Prestcotton set sail in search for a mythical beast known as a Feudworm, which she had claimed to have seen before.
During her expedition with her crew-mates, she was largely unsuccessful but upon having consumed a large amount of an undetermined alcoholic beverage became convinced she had spotted one such creature.
In her attempt to capture this beast, both her crew-mates died and were possibly consumed to prevent further starvation before the ship was discovered by the HMV Bulliot twenty-eight days after departing the ports of Penchester.
Once news of this event came to public ears, it was reported in many sensationalist Happenings under the guise that intoxication can lead to murder, under headlines such as 'One Glass too Many Makes for a Class One' and 'In with a Drink, out with Death', which were of course gross exaggerations and therefore ignored by much of the public.
This document is often referenced while training new Custodians as an example of how a seemingly harmless endeavour can become a very dangerous one, and to serve as a reminder that having naval patrols not only protects trade, but also protects all other people who might be out at sea.
