adrestia project

When the crew of HMS Penthos mutiny and kill their officers, it falls on Captain Rhys Harper of HMS Adrestia to hunt down and recapture the rogue ship before it can be handed over to the enemy.

There you go - poster and summary for Adrestia! Despite the sound of it, Adrestia isn’t really an action/adventure story - it focuses mainly on the internal conflicts and relationships on board Adrestia in the lead up to, and aftermath, of the Penthos mutiny. Some of the events in Adrestia were inspired by the real life mutiny that took place in 1797 on board the HMS Hermione, the bloodiest mutiny in British naval history, which resulted in the deaths of 11 officers, including the captain.
