The limited stats shown match up to the House Liao Zibler (http://www.warrenborn.com/Unit.php?ID=DOM049), but the picture is completely wrong - that's a Clan Sea Fox Solitaire (http://www.warrenborn.com/Unit.php?ID=AN049).


I thought so! I wonder if just anyone can make changes?

That must be really important!

Interesting to see no helmsmen.


Woops, spelling error ahead . Heh, "god" duty indeed. There wasn't room for helmsmen, and the Islands were only 2L apart, which made for faster travel.

In hindsight, that is correct, a CM would be required to even put him there in the first place.

I recall a discussion similar to this a while ago now, but I don't recall it perfectly.


Oh, OK, that makes more sense then.

I would put the links to the Monsters Ahoy fleet and the BR in the description.

I guess I didn't realize you could add a linked crew without adding a cargo space in the first place.

Most people use the no-duplicates rule, but this looks like it would be fun to use in a casual deathmatch.

PS: I also love POTC.

quote from xerecs:

It is quite impresive what the Pirates have mustered, and so is the competition, the Spanish have the Buscador to run gold form them as well as the San Cristobal to cause havoc. However that San Cristobal is limping home after an encounter with the American Minutemen. They're using both the schooner and the flotilla simultaneously. Technically violating the no duplicate rule, but for this game I let it go.
The Darkhawk has been captured by the Spanish, and the Longshanks has been as well, leaving the Pirates with the Amity and Cry to run gold. I'm not sure where I will post the rest of the BR. I might post it here first then copy and paste into the BR thread.


That's actually not violating the no duplicates rule since they're different "ships".


quote from The Pirate Code:
--Some ships have the same or similar names but completely different physical configurations (different ship types, a different number of masts, etc.); these are not considered duplicates and may be used together.


Yeah I would just post the BR in both places.

Not surprisingly a very effective fleet. The Black Pearl is crazy good here; I was going to say the BP has too many bonuses (wasting the second one on the rank-2 cannons), but you're essentially only paying one point for Calico's WH. It will be interesting to see if Beastie can help you without any movement bonuses, especially since it sounds like your competition is similarly effective (based on the opposing ships you mentioned).

Interesting setups on the Revenant and Darkhawk too. It's extremely impressive what the Pirates can fit into this build total, even if it is quite high.

Bonus points for the BR, can't wait to see the rest of it!

Monsters, hoists, and canoes! Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Army "Monsters, hoists, and canoes!" by a7xfanben United States send message

I used this fleet in a game! Here is the battle report.

A 150 point game has been played! This was a new record high build total for my opponent.

He rolled to go first, using a Cursed American fleet. He used some new ships, such as the Poor Adams, Locker and Pyre. He also pulled a Needle from an RotF pack, giving him a fog hopper.


I was finally able to use the fleet I'd been looking forward to for a while.

Monsters, hoists, and canoes!

Slarg Gubbit was subbed in for Champ, allowing for a third oarsman on the Serpent's Fang. One of my Cursed canoes has disappeared, so the Scepter was used as a proxy canoe.


The outer four islands contained 8 coins apiece, with the center island having 10.


All three sea monsters got both +L bonuses on the first turn, swimming submerged across the sea and towards the enemy fleet. To my dismay the Pequod found the Cursed Conch!






Master Scribe put a trade current in front of the Cursed gunships, while the Buscador hoisted gold from the center island.


The Pequod tried to return home but was quickly struck by Slarg Gubbit and Tiamat! The Cursed couldn't eliminate the Conch, but at least they had the ship pinned.


At this point, chaos reigned for a while. Slarg Gubbit was quickly taken out, while Tiamat suffered damage.


The sea monster assault allowed the Cursed to run gold without any threat of interference. I'm annoyed with Photobucket; the site doesn't let me rotate my photos anymore.


The Nightmare and Tiamat teamed up to sink the Pequod, but not before the Nightmare stole the Cursed Conch. El Fantasma sacced an oarsman to get the Serpent's Fang in on the carnage, hitting the Needle. Calypsos surfaced and rammed the Shark, winning a boarding party to eliminate DNT and a captain.




The Americans fight back, killing Tiamat and damaging both Calypsos and the Serpent's Fang.


Calypsos was killed, meaning all three Cursed sea monsters were dead. The Serpent's Fang and Nightmare used abilities (sac and Ghost Ship) to move over and target the Locker. However, they were ineffective.


The Serpent's Fang was sunk, while the Nightmare was captured.


The Grampus managed to eliminate some Cursed canoes, but the game was essentially over.


The Cursed conceded the remaining gold to the Americans, and won by a score of 47-14!


This was a fun game, especially the first 2/3 of it. I was happy to execute my strategy correctly, which allowed the gold game to go uncontested. The Cursed Americans fought well however, capturing or eliminating the entire attack squadron.

After such a large game, we may go the complete opposite route and play tiny games next time to change it up once again!

She's one of the few ships that can afford to have Davy aboard, and still have room for an expensive crew or two. You raise some good points though.

I still like the Specter, but the fleet feels a bit lacking between the absence of good firepower (no rank-2 guns or L range guns) and only 2 open cargo spaces. If the sac ability was any more expensive, I think you'd be partially wasting it since there aren't many options to sacrifice.

Interesting fleet, if any of the possession fails, I think you can still give the ships actions, so in the event of a failed possession, the Swallow might be able to simply wreck other ships, depriving them of their gold and other cargoes.

Am I incorrect in thinking the cost of forts you want to use have to be included in your build total? If they DON'T, I've been playing them wrong all these years.


Forts are not included in the build total. They are essentially purchased in-game with gold from your home island.

(Edits to the fort miniatures made them have actual point costs, which was incorrect, but that was fixed.)
