It's an old tune, but we gave it new meaning out here.
— Mysterious Stranger

"We Shall Sail Together" is a shanty that was first featured in the E3 2016 Cinematic Trailer[1]. It was composed by Robin Beanland and sung by Anna Hon. The lyrics were written by Chris Allcock. Instruments featured in the song include the hurdy-gurdy, electric bass, drums, and nyckelharpa.

Athena's Fortune is illustrated with the motifs of the song, influencing the Shanty of Legends. A lyric book can be randomly encountered in the game.

Lore[edit | edit source]

We Shall Sail Together

Cloaked in folds of midnight waters
Side by side, we sons and daughters
We set forth for no king's orders,
But we'll sail together.

Hold fast! Tides are turning
Flames roar! Fires are burning
We'll all be returning
If we sail together.

All on the waves shall know our story
Sing of the battles fought ashore, we
All shall thrive on fame and glory
When we sail together.

Words of warning have been spoken
Ancient creatures have awoken
Still, until our bond is broken
We shall sail together!
We shall sail together...
We shall sail together...

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • We Shall Sail Together is adapted from the melody of sea shanty "Drunken Sailor". The time signature was switched from 4/4 to 6/8, which gave it a brisk "waltz feel".
