Hello everyone!! I’ve heard that some more peoples have joined the site! I’m also probably numerous weeks behind on everything! ???

Unfortunately, I do not have an update for Seas of Doom, today. However, I have something else; something kinda special. ??

If you guys remember, halfway through Dark Tides, Google Docs and my phone’s Notepad where I was recording the set both failed me and ended up deleting a bunch of my stuff, including a set of unreleased Limited Edition pieces and some Super Rares. ?? Through a somewhat complicated and actually legal means, I have recovered some of the data from my phone’s Notepad! ?

I therefore have for you today, the unreleased Limited Edition pieces from Pirates of the Dark Tides!!

Let’s begin with the relevant keywords so these all make sense:

1. Piraka: This piece has the Black Mark Keyword, and gets +1 to all die rolls

2. Copycat: At the beginning of each of your turns, choose any ability possessed by any ship or crew in play; this piece has that ability. You may make a different choice each turn.

3. Fleet Admiral: Once, at the beginning of your turn, roll a d6. On a 6, give any one ship in your fleet an extra action.

4. S-Range Immunity: This ship cannot be shot at by ships within S of her.

Guns: 2S, 3S, 3S, 4S

Before i get flamed: yes I know that these Piraka are both “bjorken” and impossible to play in tandem with each other even tho they link. ??
The link is mostly because of the characters they’re based on and who they’re “supposed to be”.

Now I’m sure some of you are wondering where the Super Rares are. In response to that, I can only say that, sadly, due to the manner of their content, they will not be released with Pirates of the Dark Tides. However, they will be released with Pirates: The Seas of Doom. So y’all gotta wait just a li’l bit longer to see what they are.

As always, feedback and non-murdering criticism is welcome 😉
Respond with any questions or concerns you have regarding any of these pieces; and I’ll probably get back to you before the end of November ?

Until the next post
