This is for the Uncommon Fleet Challenge.

First, I am actually not using the London. Thanks to RtSS, the London has been rendered obsolete by her sister ship, the HMS Halcyon. The Halcyon has the exact same stats as the London (see below), but has a much better ability: "When this ship sinks another ship, you can repair one of this ship's masts." In a challenge where shipwrights are unusable, this ability is awfully handy.

I had a lot of ideas for this challenge, and I really was going to go an all Spanish Fleet starring the best way to get double actions, Santa Ana , but without a reroll available I just couldn't make the points worth it. (I was tempted to try a SAC source, but without explorers or oarsmen, it was just too expensive to be worth it also) I also really wanted to use the HMS Kirkwall for an explorer (don't even own that ship heh), but fell a point short since I wanted her really fast.

The result is this, maybe not the best, maybe not the most original, but fun to play. The Halcyon is the enforcer, alas only going SSS, but bringing some nasty guns to the table. She might not be able to catch the SSL ships that other fleets are sure to have, but other options for SSL gunships were not fitting for me with what I wanted.

Darkhawk II, cheesy as she is, will be the main gold grabber. Fit with a Captain, she is able to defend herself if faced with an enemy gunship, or depending on the opponent, can take the (albeit slow) offensive to stop the enemy from grabbing gold.

La Anunciata serves the purpose of an explorer. Blazing out in front of the Darkhawk, she will use her turn to explore islands (and take the brunt of the possible legal bad UTs Marines or Curse of the Black Spot, or hopefully use Davy Jones Key to help get more gold at that island). She will move on and leave the actual gold grabbing for the DH, possibly taking one large coin near the end if necessary. Another option for Anunciata is to be a kamikaze - catching up and ramming a ship the Halycon can't catch to both slow it down and/or hopefully damaging it.

Thanks for the challenge =)

The Halcyon is a superbe gunship for it's size and cost. Even without Extras it'll be hard to take on, especially if you don't get the first shot.

I'm not totally sold on the mark as explored ability, but I think you put it to good use here. The DHII is slower but has a massive hold and decent cannons.
