Hello everyone!!
It has been a very long time since I’ve posted on this site ???
But never fear! For I have come back with the first part of the next faction in Pirates: The Seas of Doom!!

I give you: The Cursed

But first relevant Keywords
1. Canceller: Once per turn, one crew or ship within S of this ship cannot use its ability this turn.

2. Seafloor Traveler: At the beginning of each of you turns decide if this ship is submerged or not. If she is, she cannot ram, be rammed, pin or be pinned, board, be boarded, shoot or be shot at.

3. Armed Merchant: Once per turn, as a free action, one of this ship’s canons may shoot at one enemy target in range. This shot cannot have its range or rank increased. (A captain crew is not needed for this action)

4. World-Hater: This ship gets plus one to her cannon rolls against any ship of a different nationality.

1. Klen
Points: 30
Masts: 5
Cannons: 2S,2S,2S,2S,2S
Cargo: 4
Base Move: S+S
Ability: Canceller. Seafloor Traveler.

Flavor: Her name means Death in a long-dead language; her crew is relentless and craves slaughter; she appears from out of nowhere, emerging from the sea like a harbinger of doom to all who do not fly the Red Skull. She is fury, she is terror, she is Klen.

2. Bryce Laurence
Points: 4
Ability: When this ship hits an enemy ship, eliminate one cargo from that ship. For each cannon roll of 1 made for this ship, eliminate one crew from this ship.

Flavor: Laurence is a madman, one of the many servants of the Cursed Empire whose mind is so broken, he cannot be reasoned with by friend or foe. He often kills members of his own crew to satiate his need to end life.

3. Michael Varus
Points: 5
Ability: Captain. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against American ships.

Flavor: A reanimated American soldier who was left for dead on the Constitution when she was sunk, Varus is merely the embodiment of spite and abandonment, vying to get revenge on the men who left him.

4. Drej Queen
Points: 18
Masts: 4
Cannons: 2S,2L,2L,2S
Cargo: 5
Base Move: L
Ability: This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against non-Cursed ships
Link: Captain Cale Tucker

Flavor: The very ship that sacked her own current captain’s childhood port town many years ago, the Drej Queen is more than capable of delivering justice to all who oppose the righteous power of Jones’s ever-expanding empire.

5. Captain Cale Tucker
Points: 7
Ability: Captain. Broadsides Attack.
Link: Drej Queen

Flavor: His mind poisoned by the power within his grasp, Captain Tucker has forsworn his homeland of America for the corruption of the Cursed Empire.

6. Tegrin
Points: 17
Masts: 5
Cannons: 4S,3L,3L,3L,4S
Cargo: 6
Base Move: S
Ability: Captain. This ship gets +1 to cannon rolls against any ship.

Flavor: Found grounded in the frozen tundra of the arctic, Davy Jones took great care to have the Tegrinmade ready for sail and combat. Slow though she may be, the Tegrin can usually hold her own against most ships she encounters, regardless of her limited crew.

7. La Alma Rota
Points: 17
Masts: 4
Cannons: 2S,3L,3L,2S
Cargo: 4
Base Move: L
Ability: Crew of any nationality may use their abilities on this ship. This ship gets +1 to cannon rolls against Spanish ships.
Link: Héctor Rivera

Flavor: Despite her depressive name, the “Broken Soul” is often the site of many grand parties and events. Seemingly harmless, sailors approach the vessel and join in the revelry. But they soon find out, that try as they might, they will never leave her alive.

8. Héctor Rivera
Points: 8
Ability: If this ship wins a boarding party, she may capture the crew with the highest point cost instead of eliminating it. A captive becomes assigned to this ship, takes up no cargo space, and can use its abilities. The captive cannot leave this ship.
Link: La Música de los Muertos; La Alma Rota

Flavor: After making a deal with Davy Jones to get revenge on a man who betrayed and murdered him, Héctor set sail in search of his family. What he did not know then, was that his deal with Jones would forever keep him from finding them.

9. La Música de los Muertos
Points: 15
Masts: 2
Cannons: 3L, 3L
Cargo: 4
Base Move: S+S
Ability: Armed Merchant. Spanish crew may use their abilities on this ship.
Link: Héctor Rivera

Flavor: Unlike Rivera’s other ship, the “Music of the Dead” disguises herself as a Spanish trading vessel in order to infiltrate and destroy small groups of royal cargo barges.

10. Inferno
Points: 20
Masts: 4
Cannons: 2L,2S,2S,2L
Cargo: 3
Base Move: S+S
Ability: +1 to cannon rolls against any ship
Link: Dante Alighieri

Flavor: Accurately named, the Inferno is captained by a man who embodies the hatred and suffering of Hell’s darkest levels.

11. Dante Alighieri
Points: 9
Ability: Captain. Helmsman. World-Hater
Link: Inferno

Flavor: Considering the name of the ship he was set to command, Dante chose to rename himself in honor of the man who first described Hell to mankind.

This concludes the first half of The Cursed from Seas of Doom. (I was gonna release these on Christmas Eve, but family plans, the realization that that would be kinda ironic in a messed-up way, and an unwritten “end blurb” kept that from happening. I’d be terrible at YouTube ??)

Feel free to criticize and respond with your thoughts, just please don’t destroy my fragile, young-adult ego ??? All feedback is welcomed and expected. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about these pieces.

This took longer to post because I wrote up Flavor Texts for the pieces that I hadn’t written before because I was a derp. ?
So as a heads up, it will be a while until you see me after tomorrow when I hopefully release the second half of The Cursed.

But when you do: España se dará a conocer.

Until the next post
