The Corsairs quickly used round earth to explore a southern wild island that the Harbinger and Comet appeared to be headed towards.

The Harbinger is back in action!

But the Cursed Corsairs go 5/5 between the Freedom’s Hand and the Cat’s Claw to dismast the new ship! (the Claw had a successful ram)

Early-game carnage:

The Comet shoots a mast off the Cat’s Claw, but the Corsairs have other issues.

As the English explore the northwestern island, the Pirate Antamasia wants no part of them. The English send the Santa Ana through a whirlpool to raid the Corsairs’ HI. The submerged Pyre failed to ram a mast off the Meresman.

The Freedom’s Hand engages the Antamasia at S+S range while the Santa Ana is free to return home with stolen loot after Bianco’s Haulers prevented the ship from being shot at while it was docked at the Corsairs’ HI. The Harbinger is rowing home as the Spanish fleet accumulates gold.

Above the mainmast of the King Edward, the proud HMS Dover docks home gold. In the distance, the Pyre has surfaced to engage the Meresman, but she’s unsuccessful.

English return home with gold

The Pirate Antamasia answered with a 2/2 to beat the Freedom’s Hand.
