Faction Affiliation: French
Point Value: 6
Number of Masts: 1
Cargo Space: 2
Base Move: S+S
Ability: Galley. Parley.
Flavor text: This ship was built solely to transport the beautiful, valuable, and useless cannon made of marble and ivory. The gun and carriage are so heavy that the ship needs full oar power to move at a reasonable pace. Merely a status symbol for the King of France, opponents usually ignore the small galley when they learn of the cargo she carries. More intrigued opponents are paid off using the King’s stores of gold permanently kept aboard.
