Return to Savage Shores was the final set designed, but it was never released due to Wizkids getting shut down. Here are my Top 10 game pieces from the set!

You can find the original threads here or look at the spreadsheet for the set here.

1. GWL (American Mycron)

2. Fetu

Basically OP with the following game piece aboard...

3. Lady Roimata

Pairs well with a ton of great French ships, both gunships and gold runners.

4. Rocinante

Has very good speed for a hoist and could even do pretty well as a raider between that ability and somewhat serviceable guns.

5. English Native Canoes/French Native Canoes/Pirate Native Canoes

Unlike the SS canoes, these sets are harder to differentiate in the rankings. The English ones make it possible to do all sorts of crazy repair options, including sea monsters. The French ones are definitely the best pure gold runners in the bunch, and the easiest to fit into a fleet (and onto a ship for the chieftain). The Pirate ones may have the slowest speed and a somewhat high cost, but the potential for swarm-raiding a home island (especially with hoists and/or major support nearby) is just awesome and has some real potential. Consider that you could get 5 coins at once for less total points than the Wicked Wench or Belladonna .

6. Zhanfu

The fastest 10 master in the game! Capable of 6S speed and 20 shots rather easily when you consider the Mercenary and American crew available. Tons of great combos as with the other 10 masters.

7. HMS Halcyon

Slight upgrade over HMS London .

8. Colector del Dia

One of my favorite ships, and essentially an upgraded version of my classic favorite the Cazador del Pirata, this is a fantastic hybrid that is criminally underrated when compared to other Spanish ships.

9. Fortaleza

10. Papa Doc

Cursed finally got a proper canceller crew. Amazing addition for them, and works great on their fun array of flagships including two 10 masters.

Just missed: Sskwa'aluk, USS Strongarm, Plague of the South

Honorable mentions:
Orphan
Ebat
Namazu
Sirene
Mongrel
Renard a Ailes
HMS Goodfellow
Babieca
Sebastian Rojo
Abandoned Charts
Native Lore
USS Conscript

(Spanish cargo master excluded due to massive similarity with my SS rankings)

I would say that Sebastian Rojo would deserve a spot, he's the ONLY natural source of the SAC ability for Spain. His drawback however I will admit is his cost at nine points, but when you cross a Marine with SAC, 9 is about right.

Other than that, a nice list.

RtSS had an interesting mix of "meh" ships and crazy-powerful ones. Catamarans and Windcatchers in particular got some great attention in this set, and I sorta wonder if we're capable of printing fan-made copies one day, with original art.
