Episode Three Mystery: Clarifications
For story reasons, we have limited
the possible poisons to the few listed. In real life, investigators would
have many more causes to consider.
For story reasons, we can assume that the anthropologists
found all the bottles, cans and other durable trash produced by the Arctica
Claudia, William, the Arctica Recovery Expedition,
the Lady Jane, Qanik Bay, Deckerd Manuscripts and Frederickssen
Hospital are all fictitious.
Captain Torvey, Perdita Torvey, H.M.S. Arctica
and her crew are fictitious, as is the Bath Compass. We have tried to
present 19th-century life as accurately as possible, within the limits
of an engaging story.
