No. He is one of the captains doing the No Wf challenge, along with Poryg the Dry. Poryg the Thirsty will collect water-fuel from fellow ships. He will focus on having water-fuel or at least luxury rations. Poryg the Dry will go all the way without any water-fuel at all. No ships attacking, no exploration... and I even sold my initial water-fuel. Also, to make things more interesting, the crew of Poryg the Dry isn't allowed to mutiny even once. When they do, it's my loss.
