The S.S. Tycho Brahe: One smart boat


Whilst having a splendid evening in the DC Waterfront area, I spied this literary vessel. It's giving props to one of two geeky sources - either the Danish astronomer / alchemist or, better, one of the stars of my favorite webcomic, Penny Arcade.
It's a fun area. The fish market smells overwhelmingly of fish of many varieties, as will your clothes when you're done. I enjoying seeing a counter of crabs scurrying all over each other. The fishmongers (yessss) would toss the live crabs into brown paper bags and hand them to happy customers. Raw fun.

What sort of Piety/Intelligence statistics would an astronomer/alchemist start off with IYO?

HAH! The fish market smelled of fish!
My new favorite saying.
