Should we loose a broadside or come back for another pass? CYOA

Found this little gem the other day - it's pretty damn fun for a bit of distraction.
If you're familiar with the movie 'Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World', this is a choose-your-own adventure taken from the same literature the movie is based off of. I liked it.

I've only played Choice of Dragons (as far as the Choice of Series goes).

The best is the replay-ability, it eats up what like one hour though?
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

I got sucked in and had to stop playing so I could get some work done.

Yeah, this is about an hour. I ended mine a fighter par excellence, with the rank of admiral, an empty wallet and a dead lover. I'd have to imagine given how many branching pathways I went through, I could have ended up very differently indeed.
