My entry for the Uncommon fleet challenge! For this challenge participants were only allowed to build their fleet using pieces with the Uncommon (U) rarity, including generic crew.
Coming in with the first slot is the Darkhawk II. usually the Hawk is equipped to run as a hybrid, but here she has been tuned to a pure gunship. Firstly Mr. Gibbs comes aboard to lend his extensive nautical history and experience to task, allowing the crew to come aboard. Next comes Jimmy Legs one of the only sources of SAC with an uncommon rarity. After him comes a generic captain and helmsman, both from waaaaaaaay back in Spanish Main. Finishing off the crew are three cannoneers, who will serve twofold. Firstly as food for Jimmy legs, and secondly to re-shoot a missed shot if the need arises.
Filling out the second and final slot is the Neptune's Hoard who is equipped with only a helmsman. The Hoard is large enough to fend off attackers and absorb the first shot from a smaller or unlucky gunship. Her speed and ability to potentially snag better treasures are her main draw.
The UT's Aztec Medallion, Marines, and Curse of the Black Spot are included to hopefully trip up opponents and at the very least keep things interesting.
