The report for the action of December 6th will be split into two or three parts.
After El Fantasma told them the way, the English decided to commit ships to the cause of fighting the Pirate empire in the far east. Only 5 English gunships were able to fit at the other end of the whirlpool, but more will certainly arrive soon.
At the end of their turn, the English spent all of their 140 gold to get some of their best gunships! The Titan and Endeavour will have access to cancellers and multiple actions. Ducie Chads gives the Endeavour 1L guns against the Pirates, which of course will eliminate two masts with one hit! HMS Apollo has Pirate-hating built-in, and Christopher Myngs could give that ship up to 10 shots in a turn. The Leicester is crewed to her maximum point total and cargo restrictions, ready to dole out some serious damage.
