A derelict & barnacle-encrusted ship washes up on the coastline; The locals have heard of steel, but they’ve never seen several thousand tonnes of it floating before.
People live at the very edge of the world, where the ocean falls over the lip & falls into the void, gathering all of the strange things which drift their way from the mysterious places further in.
One day they spot something new; A gargantuan metal ship, belching smoke, and heading their way.
Being a Colonist on the water world of Oceania will be great; All the advertising talks about the friendly natives and well-equipped floating colonies.
Reality is a little different; You’re stuck in a new settlement in the hurricane zone, and the inhabitants, native or no, hate you.
