Fleet "Pushers"

Fleet "Pushers"

The idea for the fleet is to run three heavy speed gunships that "push" treasure haulers using "any ship in your fleet may be given an extra action" crew. Both treasure haulers have no crew and allow you to poison the treasure with negative UT and avoid most of the negative effects.

It is possible to run "extra action for any ship in your fleet" on all three but it requires removing the world hater from the Black Swan AND the helmsman and replace them with Kheir-ed-din. Two should be good enough and I like the 5 - 2S cannons on the Black Swan moving at S+S+S.

The Mermaid is the backup for the Le Bon Marin. The built in explorer allows it to explore and avoid UT like Missionary ect (no crew). The gunships run using the same action twice and give the "action to any ship" rolls to the treasure runners or use the extra action themselves depending on the circumstances.

Limit, Ransom. Place this crew face up during setup. You may build your fleet using 5 more points than the build total. This crew cannot leave this ship unless it is captured or eliminated.

Scott Bratley is Governor Lynch's secret to keeping the Empire's interests prospering in the Caribbean. Administrator Bratley is solely responsible for the smooth working of the fleet and the thriving trade, and he seems able to summon resources out of thin air.

Miniature text:

Once at the beginning of each of your turns roll a d6. On a result of 6, any ship in your fleet may be given two actions that turn.

Owen's rich merchant family has never been accepted into society, so he went to sea to change his social standing. His unique command style of scanty discipline and huge cash rewards for success is possible only by paying his crew from his own pocket. Being a social climber himself, he has figured out Diana Doone's little secret, but since he has not revealed it, some arrangement must have been made.

Schooner. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against forts within S of her.

The Crown ordered Captain Kline to accommodate veteran soldier Lt. Hardwicke in training the Oxford's crew in strategies for capturing forts and cities. Disdainful of the regular army, Kline has grudgingly complied.

Myngs was sent to the Spanish Main to remove the Spanish, but without sufficient forces to do the job. To solve this problem, Myngs pioneered the use of buccaneers to fill the gaps in his fleet. He personally led the largest of these combined fleets to victory against the Spanish, and later against the Dutch, until Governor Lynch put an end to what he viewed as a "despicable" practice.
