About The Brute

It’s not for nothing they call her “The Brute.” The Most Rose killed a half dozen construction workers before she ever put to sea, and after that — well, year after year, voyage after voyage, she continued to demand payment in blood, grief or madness from all who risked her decks. Many say this old cargo ship is cursed, but the truth is far more terrifying than any curse could ever be.
