Salt and Sanctuary begins with a shipwreck. You awaken within the pitch black innards of a vessel in calamity. During a horrendous storm, a Lovecraftian horror emerged from the watery depths, and now it aims to reduce your ride to splinters. You amble to the deck to meet the beast, but the tentacled demon snuffs out your spirit in seconds and demolishes the watercraft. You sink below the storm-maddened waves and all but drown.
