Oooh. I like the Crystal Shroud. It sounds cool, and has an interesting function, I’d probably use it on a heavyweight named crew, or what I’d consider the most important named crew on a gunship. Might be difficult in that respect, since big gunships usually get built to the point limit.

Indeed; perhaps it would work for named crew that have multiple abilities that are so good they don’t require many other crew to be on the ship.  Such as Stern, Victor de Alva from F&S, sac captains, etc.

Might as well put the “epic” in Epic Seas! XD
