For my first fleet challenge, I hope I don't mess it up too badly.
I've been inspired by all the Olympics advertising, so in the spirit of international cooperation and competition, I figured we'd stage a Pirates version of the Summer Games. The rules:
40 points / most gold (medals) wins.
Each fleet must be from one of the six current factions(American, Cursed, English, French, Pirate, or Spanish)
, but there can be more than one entry for a faction, so no need to claim them here.
You may not include crew or ships from a different primary faction, but the other 6 (Golden Legacy) factions' crew (no ships) are fair game if you can get their abilities to function on your primary faction ships. Ex-Pats are easiest here (Eileen's only a little Irish, really she's French!).
Each fleet must have at least one crew, ship or equipment with the Parley
keyword. (Friendly International Relations!)
In order to keep the Pirates and French from having too big an advantage, the Soul Mark equipment will work on both Cursed and Pirates for this challenge and additional Letter of Marque type equipment beyond the first on a ship will take up no cargo space.
No Musketeers, Marines, Cannoneers, or Cannoneer Specialists (Peaceful competion!)
The World-Hater ability does not function(International Cooperation!), but crew with this ability text are allowed.
For authenticity, non-Letter of Marque type equipment (perfomance enhancers) are allowed in the challenge, but only the single use (LE) variety. (Don't want to get caught cheating!)
And finally, no Silver Explorers. (Go for the Gold!)
Everything else is allowed, including (but not limited to) 0LR crew, Events (Weather), UTs, and sea creatures (contending with Mother Nature).
Please name your fleets: Name
's Gold Race fleet.
Please post any questions and/or point out anything that I've forgotten that will ruin the challenge.
Oh, and how do you put a "sticky" on a post?
