The two killing tools of whales by American whaling fleets of the 19th century. To become fastened to a particular whale, the harpoon is used. It is made with an iron barb to hold fast in living flesh, and attached to the whale line, which is managed by boats crews after the harpoon is successfully thrown. Second, the lance, a longer weapon whose iron head possesses no barb, is used to stab at the heart and lifeblood of the whale.
These weapons are used to track your progress during the hunt, and to reveal the status of any given player to all. If many boats are Fast, perhaps the risk of an attack is unnecessary?
