Hailstorm of Knives
Faction Affiliation: Mercenary
Point Value: 17
Number of Masts: 4
Cargo Space: 3
Base Move: L
Ability: Mercenary. Chain Shot. When this ship hits an enemy ship, also eliminate one crew from that ship.
Link: Generis Walsh
Flavor text: Stocking up on sharp metal objects over their travels, the crew of this vessel are known for stuffing their cannons with knives and daggers. This nasty mixture can cut down both enemy sailors and rigging to devastating effect.
The chainshot ability refers to the knives cutting up the rigging, I just didn’t want to make a new ability or keyword for it.
Faction Affiliation: Neutral
Point Value: 7
Ability: Ex-Patriot. Captain. Parley.
Link: Hailstorm of Knives
Flavor text: Although he was captain of the Hailstorm of Knives some years ago, Generis Walsh has since become a worldly politician of dubious background. No one knows his origin, his main ally, or who he prefers to “serve”. He has become somewhat of an international intrigue, always talking to important figures in the shadows. Although he is incredibly well connected, it remains to be seen how much power he actually has in influencing the grand wars that lie ahead.
I’ve got a handful of Neutral faction game pieces in my set, but there’s a chance I’ll change them a bit to convert them into normal factions or something in the future… even the link of the above combo is kinda strange to me.
Historical Custom of the Day #342
El Mulato Grillo
Ability: World Hater. [This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against any non-Pirate ship.] If this ship wins a boarding party against a Spanish ship, she can eliminate all of the other ship’s crew.
