Here's what I was thinking: I wanted to do a Back to the Basics game, just a plain old 40 point fleet for treasure. But then I thought, that's pretty boring. So then I wanted to go with a theme, and that got too restricting, so I'm stretching the theme out.
3 Pirate Lords
We're going to look at the 3 most popular pirates in the game: Captain Blackheart, Captain Jack Hawkins, and Calico Cat. Pick one of these captains and design a 40 point fleet. There will be bonuses provided throughout the challenge with clues that will help you out.
- You must choose only 1 of the 3 Pirate Lords
- All of your ships and crew must reflect a friendly relationship to those Lords. For instance, you can't use Jack Hawkins or his ships in the same fleet as Blackheart or his ships. It goes along with the Hostile:, Loyal: aspect. Also, you can have only 1 version of the Pirate Lord in the fleet. Don't worry, I provided a list. If you can find a ship or crew that belongs in the list and its missing, you will be awarded 1 extra build point. PM me, but, you must be able to defend your reasoning.
- This is a standard treasure game, so remember that.
- No 0-point limit ransom crew allowed, since only 1 of them is connected to any of the Pirate Lords. You will be awarded 2 build points if you can PM me who it is.
- No SEs, PRs, or LEs. Sorry, but I want this to be from cards easily accessible. I know, King Blackheart would be great, but sorry.
- All other standard fleet building rules apply
- When titling this fleet, give it "username's 3 Pirate Lords"
