In the game, can lorchas risk
the high seas and travel to India to PURCHASE Opium?

If the answer is NO....then why would the Fate Cards have deep water penalties? The lorchas would be content to stick to the coastline at all times.

What I've come up with is an Optional rule that they have to travel around the Dragons Head towards India because the distance.

I'm also thinking of employing an additional rule where the lorchas could carry twice as much Opium on their return from India back around the Dragons Head.

I do not know if you read this answer, but I try even if it is a bit late ...
The Lorchas cannot go to India, but can go both in the areas of coastal and deep waters. You can find all this at the beginning of page 9, inside the section "Game Board Notes".
Best Regards ... and "good trade" ,
