Should have said a few more things in my last post. I actually don’t think the Catedral should be more expensive. It will take some doing to get the cannon bonuses, and a fort with 4 cannons firing at rank-1 for 5 gold and no additional abilities/defenses is quite likely around what Wizkids would have costed it at. Not that that makes it right, but there are far better forts for similar or lower costs, and the Catedral starts out as one of the worst forts in the game in terms of value. In addition, S-range guns on a fort are VERY easily avoided by any competent captain, so I’d say the fort is actually worse than existing ones such as Ramsgate and Dead Man’s Point, which aren’t even the best forts Wizkids made. I think 5 gold would be fine for playtesting.

On the other hand, De Leon seems a bit of an OP hybrid. That combination of stats and abilities makes me worry a little. I think 15 points would be a better place to start.

People can playtest their own customs as they want to… there shouldn’t be any demands to playtest certain customs.

Flavor text: After escaping certain death at the hands of her biased captain (Ulnar Lesion), Bellen decided to forge a new path. Finding employ aboard what she considers the “prettiest and cleanest” ships on the sea, she can now live without fear. That is, until a number of evil mercenaries may find her….
