===== HAILS =====

Captain Big Bad Dom (2): The End is Nigh
Captain Charlie (3): Good luck to those who deserve it...
Captain Desperate Dan (4): No offence Mavvers me old mate!

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

We patrolled our home, the Bermuda Triangle (8) ...in which luck is never agin us, but lookouts are sore baffled!

Panic stations! The warship Julius Caesar is coming after us! ... but fortunately it's looking in the wrong Area!

We heard that our target, the knock-kneed Estragon, was in the Horn of Plenty (7), so moved there

We heeded your instruction to add another pair of Guns
We are away from home, so a pair of Guns costs 75 PE
We completed the purchase of a new pair of Guns

The following ships were in our current area Horn of Plenty
The Intact Pirate Cog Golden Hound III
The Intact Pirate Barque Ill Wind
The Intact Merchant Barque Desailly
The Incapacitated War Ketch Estragon - our chosen target

We were delayed by our work on the ship

First we sought to attack the cowardly Estragon (Incapacitated War Ketch)
In local knowledge terms they were marginally favoured!
And lo! we caught our victim and boarded it...
We could not fail to catch our quarry
We successfully boarded Estragon in our intelligent fashion
We had 62 crew and 14 officers
Estragon had 15 crew and 3 officers
0 crew and 0 officers were killed on White Tornado
15 crew and 2 officers were killed on Estragon
Our bold crew snatched 120 PE from Estragon
Estragon was gutted and floated, a useless hulk, at our side!

Our hull has been devoured by fusarium fungus, destroying one level of Protection!

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

We had no wish of a new order slot this season


We returned to our cosy home, cap'n, the Bermuda Triangle (8)

You were granted the title of Earl ! We can expect to be earning extra Terror Points from now on!

The White Tornado is Intact and the crew are Elated, sir
The crew moaned at the cramped conditions to which they were subjected


These are the ships we espy to hunt in Bermuda Triangle (8) next season, cap'n!
Our lookouts were baffled by the miasma of the Bermuda Triangle!
The Intact Merchant Diego Velasquez (30)
The Intact Brigantine Lusiade (33)
The Intact Barque Lisboa (38)
The Merchant Cog Nouvelle Orthophonie (42)
The Intact War Cog Il Giglio Rosso (44)
The Intact Schooner Plutarch (46)
and 2 mystery vessels which we could not identify!

There are currently 6 warships on the Main!

Here is the information we gleaned on the knock-kneed Ill Wind
Its hull is 50 feet long
It currently has 50 Strength Points
Its Protection is 1
It has a Speed of 3
It carries 5 pairs of Guns
It has 2 Lookouts
It holds 1 barrels of Rum
Its complement is 26 Crew and 5 Officers

The wild-eyed Ill Wind was given the following strategy to follow:
They paid 779 PE into their cache / bank account
They were to set their sails for the hell-spawn Beata Beatrix
They planned to cripple, board and then sink their wild-eyed victims!
They threw caution to the winds and boarded recklessly
They ordered another barrel of rum

The following numbers of ships are in each area of the Main:
1: 13, 2: 5, 3: 9, 4: 4, 5: 11, 6: 1, 7: 5, 8: 9, 9: 3


The title of Earl was conferred on Baron Calico Jack!

Mouldy Manticore III crippled Friedrich Von Ardsbu, then destroyed it by boarding!
Cog Sinister fired on Henrietta Maria and deliberately sank it!
Wolverine II fired on En Garde! in a vain attempt to sink it!
White Tornado destroyed Estragon by boarding it!
Vulture fired at Souvlaki trying to cripple it, boarded it inconclusively, then futilely tried to sink it!
Jolly Jalfrezi III fired on Marie de Medicis in a vain attempt to sink it!
