Flavor text: One of the “tribal flagships”, the Butterfly’s Escape is a rather ambitious vessel captained by a chieftain well regarded across the Philippines. Often seen maneuvering among many smaller vessels at once, she weaves in and out of fleets, shielding canoes and taking their stolen goods aboard to better protect the loot.

Link: Butterfly’s Escape

Flavor text: Raykos commands the Butterfly’s Escape, often seen in the lead of a massive pack of tiny canoes, making off with stolen goods and loot. Having made considerable profits, he plans to invest his savings into building a fleet capable of making the dangerous journey to the Caribbean. His goal is to “escape” the Pacific and try his hand on the Spanish Main.

Historical Custom of the Day #343

Ability: Helmsman. This crew may use their abilities in forts. This ship/fort gets +1 to her d6 rolls against Spanish ships. English ships within L of this fort get +S to their base move. Pirates crew can use their abilities on this ship. If this ship wins a boarding party, she may capture the crew with the LOWEST point cost instead of eliminating it. A captured crew becomes cargo worth its point cost in gold when unloaded at your home island.

Whew, this one took a while. Complicated and interesting story from someone I’d never heard of. Might get more links in the future too, especially if I go crazy with the political “crew” someday for rulesets like the World or Caribbean game.
