What should be done about the limit to 2 actions per ship?

Meh, I'm sick of all this dice rolling - limit it to 1 action instead (pity that all extra action crew will now be useless, but thus is the price of progress...)

Only eBay. As far as the stickies go, I think I made a post recently about BR passing the Rules thread in views, so BR is the second-most viewed thread in MT Pirates history as far as I can tell. Very Happy

eBay, you're next. Twisted Evil Laughing

With the advent of my impending Economy game, which I might post to BR, I think eBay may soon be eclipsed.

Indeed. Definitely feel free to post directly to BR; you'll be playing a lot more than I'll be able to, and I'm not doing any huge games or anything like that.

Coming Soon to a thread near you!

I fought two battles today, both short. I won one by a good margin, and I lost the other by a good margin.

Just to let you know, one was sealed-pack! Very Happy

Here's a very important question- Why do the Barbary Corsairs have Oarsman ? ALL of their ships are Galleys- which have Auto-Oarsman.
Viking's have Oarsman, but atleast they had a non-Longship ship in the Grendel .

Why would anyone use Tariq the Black , or another such Free-Ride ship just for an BC Oarsman?

Oarsman and Galley provide different propulsion abilities; namely, the Oarsman doesn't allow ramming, but your ship is not considered derelict . Galleys can ram but are derelict and can be captured.

...Unless Woelf or the Code proves me wrong...

When you're on the main forum page and hit the white page marker for the latest post in a thread (it will preview "view latest post", and then you look at the url for the webpage, it should say p=#####, which as far as I know is the total number of all posts in MT forums history. I occasionally notice the numbers, and saw someone's post at 55553 and I was going to make another post anyway, so I decided to grab the next one (post #55555) as well. link

And yes, oarsman is a changed keyword so they function differently. It seems redundant but you still need an oarsman on a galley to prevent capture.

The Oarsman keyword does work different now so it is somewhat useful on a galley, but that change didn't happen until many sets later. Somewhere around RotF, I think.

Originally, I think they were included simply to give the Corsairs a complete set of generic crew. Even though the oarsmen at the time were completely useless to them, the whining and complaining from certain whiny and complainy players who were active back then would have been far worse if they hadn't been given oarsmen at all.


Tariq has always been a waste of a good crew. He would have been far, far better as a Corsair that allowed Spanish (or "any") crew, but even the recruiting ability he does have would have been more valuable if he didn't also have the Captain ability. Then he would have at least been good for pulling Barbarossa onto Spanish ships, but when you have to pay for Captain twice plus the 2-point recruitment fee, it's just not worth it.

Giving the Corsairs a lot more (and more unique) crew would have helped too, because other than Barbie and maybe Kheir-ed-din (who has issues of his own), there's nothing in the Corsair roster that Spain doesn't already have or can't get more cheaply elsewhere.
