Thanks for the rundown Woelf.
What you talk about happening with FotG is basically what I thought would have ended up happening after reading through the events, so no surprises to me there.
I think Divers and Raft seem like the most fair events though they don’t really feel like “events” per se. They feel like they should be something like equipment with a one time effect.
Events in my mind would have been something like if Becalmed globally dropped the max movement to L for a turn for both players or something along those lines or maybe some sort of card that gave -1 to cannon rolls for both players for a turn, like “sea mist”.
In any case it does seem like a bit of a missed opportunity and I’ll probably just avoid using them for simplicity’s sake.
