Miniature text:

  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Fort
  • Cannons: 2L-2L-3L-3L-4L

The first time this fort is shot at each turn, roll a d6. The result is the number of times this fort must be hit that turn before any of its cannons can be eliminated.

Miniature text:

Gold Cost: 3

If a ship docks at this fort and unloads at least 4 gold, it may be given a second action that turn.

Informed captains know that when they dock at the port of St. Pierre, a little extra gold ensures that their cargo will be unloaded swiftly - and without a lot of questions.

  • Collector's Number: UL022
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Fort
  • Cannons: 2S-2S-3L-3L-3L
Miniature text:

Place your eliminated crew on this fort. They gain the Ghost Ship keyword.

Rumors say that The Devil's Maw holds a king's ransom in gold, but you must give up your soul to claim it - a price even pirates hesitate to pay.

Haha, this is funny, I like it. The goal was to add as many different types of keyword ship types as possible, right? Nice swarm fleet.

Now, some of these guys aren't what I would be consider to be the best gold runners of their type. Don't get me wrong, the Dervish is a good ship for her point cost. But for just a few more points, I think there are better galleys out there. But those few points might have forced you to drop a ship or a crew, so I understand. The objective was to fit in as much as possible.

I'm glad you invested part of your points towards a fighting ship. Plague was also a good choice. The Glorious Treasure has some bite, too. Creative choice with the Lightning, I like it! Those oddly-keyworded and keywordless ships are funny. The Jade Rebellion Ransom crew is unexpected, but your opponent will know what ship he's on anyway, right? A Catamaran ship might've been a good investment since those ships are a little more durable than squishy canoes and 1-masters. Still, it should be a pretty effective fleet, especially in a multiplayer match.

You could've added more strategy, but the point you were making by not belaboring the strategy is well taken. This gold fleet steals a catchphrase from the fighting fleets' playbook - "HULK SMASH!!!"

Indeed. I simply used the search function to find the cheapest ship at each keyword, and then put them in the fleet. (Thus the Lightning not really being a creative choice, but thanks!) I did consider the Skipping Stone or HMS Hermes, but when I saw that the Grinder was not only the best Turbine, but also the cheapest, my decision was made easier. It was the cheapest I could have gone without adding a flotilla, which would have left room for more crew that I didn't want to add. I felt like I was selling out a bit adding a gunship, but I would try to use the Grinder as a hybrid/escort.

This fleet started off as a complete joke, but once I realized that some of the cheapest ships of their type were actually among the best (Libellule and French canoes, etc), I realized that the fleet would turn out better than I had expected it to, hence adding the Grinder to optimize even more. And yes, Plague should be fun because I might even try to pass it off to my own ships on purpose since they don't have any crew! (Not to mention the thought of a dismasted Grinder moving S+L with the plague as a perfect flavor touch)
