The French have plenty of good ships and crew for boarding and stealing gold. This isn't so much a fleet as a combo-building exercise; for more ideas, see my Gold-stealing fleet.

Dumas is a proxy for:

Lady Roimata
RtSS-043, Super Rare

French
Points: 6
Link: Fetu

Ability: Captain. Once per turn before you give this ship an action, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, this ship can be given the same action twice.

Flavor: Suspicious and not very welcoming of the newcomers to her ocean-bound land, Lady Roimata has made overtures towards France for the benefit of her people. French cannons may be put to even better use against neighboring islands.

The Charlemange is a strong boarder, and here has S boarding and a reroller to help steal up to 3 coins. The Triton is one of my favorite underrated ships and has the ability to not be pinned after ramming, which should help Leander Arnaud get away with maximum loot (up to 4 coins at once). The oarsman helps to protect him, with a similar goal in mind for L'Heros. She has a really good combo, moving S+L x2 with rerolled SAT's (I wish I could reroll my SAT score... lol XD). She can rob enemy HI's of a couple coins, with Parley protecting her from the counteroffensive. The Vengeance setup is almost a combination of the others - rerolled EA's with a boarding bonus, and the Schooner keyword should help her get to enemies. Perhaps the greatest part of these combos is that 3/4 have the captain ability and are capable gunships and hybrids that can thrive even if they're not able to steal gold from the enemy.

Feel free to comment, vote, and share your own gold stealing strategies and combos!

  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 15
  • Cargo Space: 5
  • Base Move: S+S
  • Cannons: 2S-2S-3S-3S-3S
  • Number of Masts: 5
Miniature text:

This ship gets +1 to her boarding rolls. She gets +2 instead if her opponent is a sea monster.

Amiral Saliceti assisted Emperor Napoleon in his rise to power, and has outfitted his ship with a variety of odd weapons, including a guillotine.

1 x Mademoiselle Josephine Godiva Mademoiselle Josephine Godiva (PofDJC)
  • Collector's Number: 086
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

Limit, Ransom. Choose one French crew during setup; this crew is linked to that crew. Once per turn, you may reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you must use the second die roll result. Link: Jacques, Duc de Valois, L'Eroica.

With innocence and pure trust, Mademoiselle Godiva boarded L’Eroica because her betrothed had requested her presence in the New World. The attacks she has endured from both ships and monsters have her and the crew both puzzled and cautious.

1 x Robert Surcouf Robert Surcouf (PofBC)
  • Collector's Number: 081
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 7
Miniature text:

This ship may move and shoot using the same move action. As part of a move action, this ship may initiate a boarding party against a ship up to S away from her, without having to ram. The boarded ship may not use any boarding bonuses.

A French hero, Surcouf is the quintessential Corsair. His knack for hitting ships laden with treasure has ensured him the best crews, the best ships, and the wrath of every other nation.

 
Section: Ship #2 (3 miniatures)
1 x Le Triton Le Triton (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 075
  • Faction Affiliation: France

  • Cargo Space: 5
  • Base Move: S+L
  • Cannons: 3S-3L-4S
  • Number of Masts: 3
Miniature text:

Schooner. This ship cannot be pinned.

In combat, a member of Le Triton's crew blows the battle call on a huge conch shell to inspire the men. Geoffrey Flores covets her and the seemingly magical seashell as trophies.

1 x Leander Arnaud Leander Arnaud (PofFN)
  • Collector's Number: 074A
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 5
Miniature text:

If this ship wins a boarding party, she may take as much treasure from the other ship as she can carry.

Leander Arnaud has found that life on a ship is really the only way to live. He targets only ships that he considers to be filled with an unjust supply of gold, regardless of affiliation.

1 x Oarsman Oarsman (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 121
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 1

  • Point Value: 6
Miniature text:

Link (Le Loup-Garou)

This ship may move and shoot using the same move action. Once per turn, you may reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you must use the second die roll result.

No one denies that Dumas has a past: advisor to the king of France, minister, merchant, thief, priest, even spy. But it is his current occupation as captain of Le Loup-Garou that makes people wonder if he has any soul left.

  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 13

  • Base Move: S+L
  • Cannons: 2S-2S-2S
  • Number of Masts: 3
Miniature text:

This ship may dock at an enemy home island and load one treasure. If able, she must leave on your next turn.

L'Heros sails with unofficial orders to find and sack enemy ports. She is often spotted sailing out of a harbor atnight,laden with ill-gotten loot.

1 x Lenoir Lenoir (RotF)
  • Collector's Number: 024
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 4
Miniature text:

"Loyal:France, Parley. Once per turn, you can reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you must use the second die roll result."

"Some swear to have seen Lenoir at sites of ship explosions, sacked ports, and supposedly unexplored islands. Others say he whispers in the ear of the French king. True or not, what is known is that paying too much attention to Lenior is bad for your health."

1 x Oarsman Oarsman (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 121
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 1
Miniature text:

If derelict, this ship gains a base move of S. This crew takes up no cargo space.

  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 7
Miniature text:

This ship gets +1 to her boarding rolls. Once per turn, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, this ship may be given an extra action.

A true believer in the liberte, egalite, and fraternite of the French Revolution, Louis was born poor but became the face of the French Navy due to his ability to lead men.

  • Collector's Number: 126
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C

  • Number of Masts: 4
Miniature text:

Schooner. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against English ships.

In her last conflict with the English, La Vengeance lost all but five crew members. Those five make all new sailors swear a blood oath of revenge before coming aboard.

  • Collector's Number: 060
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew

Madame LaFontaine is proprietress of Chateau Fontainebleu, a burlesque house in New Orleans. Her girls report everything they hear to her, and she passes that information to Amiral Dupuy.
