No, don’t change Sharpton!!!! I figure you could make another American who has more serious anti-pirate abilities.
Sharpton is as anti-Pirate as it gets! I literally cannot make someone who hates Pirates more. I may still swap abilities around. Actually just added “if this ship wins a boarding party against a Pirate ship, eliminate all of that ship’s crew.”
Here comes a big combo….
Tesoro de los Antiguos
Faction Affiliation: Spanish
Point Value: 24
Number of Masts: 5
Cargo Space: 7
Base Move: L
Ability: Secret Hold. Hidden Gold. [This ship has 2 extra cargo spaces that may only be assigned treasure.] This ship’s cannons cannot have their range or rank improved.
Link: El Coleccionista
Flavor text: The Collector always commands his flagship, the Treasure of the Ancients. Personally optimized for ludicrous cargo capacity, the ship’s massive cargo hold has many alleys and secret areas, some which are known only to The Collector. It is rumored that he could be hiding long-lost religious relics down there, or even the infant corpses of illegitimate heirs to the thrones of Europe. Although still flying the Spanish flag, this galleon is known to be all but the property of The Collector himself. His unrivaled passion and zeal have kept even the royal family away from trying to get the ship back in the Atlantic treasure fleet.
Hidden Gold is actually one of Xerecs’ keywords that I like quite a lot. Hoping it goes over more as a compliment than any “theft” of ideas. 🙂
Faction Affiliation: Spanish
Point Value: 10
Ability: Explorer. Unholy Light. Once per turn, if this ship is touching another ship, she can randomly take as much treasure from the other ship as she can carry. If this ship loses a boarding party, this ship does not lose any crew or cargo.
Link: Tesoro de los Antiguos
Flavor text: Driven beyond the point of no return in his lust to acquire a specific object or objects, The Collector helms his massive galleon and sets sail under his own direction. He speaks so rarely that he is rumored to be a mute. The relics of his desire are unknown – not satisfied with the hundreds of valuable and historic artifacts he has already found, people have stopped guessing what he is searching for. His devotion to his quest has left the world in awe. Most captains simply get out of his way at this point, often letting him and his crew board their vessels and take what they want, which is usually very little. True stories abound of what happens if you refuse to show him what is aboard – the slightest raising of an eyebrow from The Collector summons a deadly hailstorm of musket balls from the Treasure of the Ancients that cuts down the captain in an instant.
