I do not plan to run the Pirates CSG Hall of Fame voting this year. With pitiful participation two years running, I don’t see much reason to continue it until more people participate. I’m fine if the other Moderators here run a vote in December or January, but I feel it doesn’t mean a lot if barely any positive votes are required for entry….November 29, 2020 at 11:37 AM #13004
Dumb question, but is it just assumed that all generic crew from the Cursed faction are automatically undead? I mean aside from the obvious crew game pieces, lore wise. It makes a lot of sense for the crew of someone like El Fantasma to be ghosts, and the crew of Stephen “Sargasso Nightmare” Kalhoun are obviously Trogs. But I’m specifically referring to the crew of lesser cursed. I can’t image the Master Scribe having a crew of zombies when he himself is not one. The same for Tabitha McWarren, who while being a ghost is not explicitly known to employ undead of fiendish creatures.
Then for even lesser cursed captains who don’t have pieces, like Captain Zanna of the Loa’s Justice whose crew are described as being escaped slaves, and Aleida Newport of the Fiddler’s Green who doesn’t seem outright cursed, but simply made a deal with someone or something for outlandish luck.December 1, 2020 at 12:55 PM #13005
The artwork for generic cursed crew seem to indicate that they’re all some kind of undead, either a zombie or walking corpse or some sort of ghost/phantom.
You make a good point though, not all of the cursed are undead or some kind of specter, but a majority of the ones we see are.December 2, 2020 at 5:03 PM #13006
Another dumb question: Obviously all the game pieces (except for the poke’ships and sea monsters) are based on real world ship models (i.e. 1 Mast Galley = Barbary Fusta, 4 Mast = Galleon, etc.). I’m assuming the two-masted square rigged ship is a Brig and the two-masted “Blockade Runner” is a Ketch?December 2, 2020 at 5:43 PM #13007
I’m not that familiar with historical names of ships, but I’d assume so?December 9, 2020 at 1:39 PM #13009Ochobrazo2298Participant

Another life goal complete – play a game of Pirates on water. 😀 Courtesy of a quarantine aboard a US Navy destroyer. 😀December 24, 2020 at 3:41 PM #13029
Nice! Looks like English v Pirates.December 25, 2020 at 4:54 AM #13032
I’m assuming the two-masted square rigged ship is a Brig and the two-masted “Blockade Runner” is a Ketch?
Definitely correct on the brig… the artwork for the “blockade runner” type started off as essentially just a sloop, since in the early sets the foresail did not have a mast connected to it, so in terms of artwork it was very similar to a one masted sloop. In later sets Wizkids added foremast artwork so the foresail wasn’t by itself, but it still doesn’t look like what I’m seeing for a modern ketch, or a ketch from the 18th century for example.January 2, 2021 at 9:32 AM #13038
Is it possible they are cutters?
Dumb follow up question, but what would the average crew size have been for your typical 3 or 4 masted schooner
