You're standing lookout on the deck of the Union warship USS Cumberland anchored in Hampton Roads. The cold morning air bites through your coat. Through the fog laying over the bay you see a shape moving, you take it as nothing, seeing things from a late watch. You take a swig of coffee from your canteen to clear your head. Suddenly you see the shape move out of the fog. A great lumbering beast low in the water, black smoke billowing from its smokestack, flying the flag of the Confederacy. You sound the alarm, and watch as this beast begins to make its way towards your ship. You hear your shipmates start to bark orders, and the guns open up.
FDOOM! FDOOM! FDOOM! The cannonballs fly through the air at an incredible speed,
CLANG! CLANG! You stare in horror as the shots bounce off the shape, as if it were made of iron! Suddenly your ship lurches underneath you, throwing you to the deck. You regain your footing and see the nose of the beast buried in the hull of your ship. It reverses its engines and slowly pulls itself out opening the hole to the sea.
