Do you ever plan to make models for the ships using duplicates?

I don’t think so, because I have SOOOO many other Pirates CSG things I’d rather do (I have massive lists…), and I can just use the stuff on VASSAL. Hopefully someday I’ll put some effort into making a few personal favorites from the set though, but not anytime soon.

Would the Rupture be able to Rupture if she had less than 5 masts remaining?

Good question; I think when I made it I had a different ability text that made even less sense. I’ll add “if this ship has less than 5 masts remaining when using this ability, this ship sinks.”

Better or still in the NO territory? If I could, I’d look and see what was said about the Chronicler when I first posted her, but that was on MT…

I think it’s better.

Link: Pegleg Parrish

Flavor text: The Bedlam is chaos personified. Often carrying all manner of odd weaponry, she puts forth a barrage of shot types and instigates battles with almost no provocation. Her loud and rambunctious crew get into the heads of enemy crew and stir any situation into a frenzy.

Pegleg Parrish
Faction Affiliation: Mercenary
Rarity: C
Type: Crew
Point Value: 5
Ability: Captain. Crew with specialist in their name don’t take up cargo space on this ship.
Link: Bedlam

Flavor text: Parrish thrives on disorder. In the middle of a hectic battle, he is calm and in his element, barking orders to his crew to ensure the survival of his ship. His favorite strategy is to stun opponents with such a varied barrage of artillery that they give up, thinking he has some kind of magical power.
