Weekly Spotlight: Red November

Just when you thought being a gnome in a creaky submarine was bad, everything that could go wrong is about to happen! On the bright side, help is on its way. Will they arrive in time to save the crew or will the forces of nature and decrepit sub spell doom for everyone?

Go under (the post) for a look at Red November.
