TURN RESULTS
============

We patrolled our home, the delightful Coral Sea (4)

We paid the sum of 300 PE into our Bank Account as you ordered

We heeded your instruction to add another Lookout station
We are at home, so a Lookout costs 50 PE
We completed the purchase of a new Lookout station

The following ships were in our current area Coral Sea
The Intact Merchant Brigantine Villeneuve
The Intact Merchant Galley Bilbao
The Intact Merchant Cog Charlemagne

First we sought to attack the lice-infested Charlemagne (Intact Merchant Cog)
In local knowledge terms we were well ahead of the game!
And lo! we caught up with our victim and tried to fire at it...
We successfully fired on Charlemagne hitting a total of 41 times
The enemy returned fire on us, but the sorry sons of Spaniards failed to hit us!
...we went on to catch our victim and board it...
We successfully boarded Charlemagne in our cautious fashion
We had 30 crew and 6 officers
Charlemagne had 9 crew and 2 officers
0 crew and 0 officers were killed on White Lightning
9 crew and 0 officers were killed on Charlemagne
Our bold crew snatched 385 PE from Charlemagne
Charlemagne was gutted and floated, a useless hulk, at our side!

There was a bank robbery, and 3 PE was stolen from our account!

We slouched about the Main, seeking Dame Fortune:
One of our lookouts was washed overboard in a tropical storm!

We have offered alliance to the following pirates: None
and the following pirates have offered alliance to us: None
so we have solid alliance with the following: None

Our recent experiences gained us an extra order slot (450 TP)
