Hello again, all! As promised, I have the second to last post from Eldest Seas!
This post is kind of special, because it would be a Mail Order Special, like the Zeus from Ocean’s Edge. For this particular piece I took inspiration from an old Japanese movie called “The Hidden Fortress” that I saw in a film class. Sadly, though, the movie was not…[Read more]
It’s been a bit longer than I promised, but I’m still here! And now, we’re moving into the final legs of Pirates of the Eldest Seas!
But before I begin, I will restate what Xerecs has said in regards to the Holy Sword keyword. Yes, it seems a little OP, but it can only affect The Cursed, and it’s effect is limited to your turn. So it…[Read more]
Hello again, everyone. I totally dropped off the face of the Earth for a while, and I can confirm, it is not flat. But now that I’m back, I can finish posting my custom set, Pirates of the Eldest Seas!
*insert cricket noises here*
Yeah, it’s been a looooong time. I will be continuing where I left off, with the French, right before the end of the…[Read more]
Alright, I’m back again, and this time I’m not about to pass out from sleep deprivation.
So let’s get into the next couple of French pieces from Eldest Seas!
Sniper: You may double the range of this ship’s cannons each turn, but you must roll a 6 to hit.
Privateer: This piece may use its abilities on any ship, but it gains the…[Read more]
Hello again, all
I have brought the next two French pieces from Eldest Seas!
This will be short and to the point because I’m awake at *insert post time* and I probably need sleep
–Armed Merchant: Once per turn, as a free action, one of this ship’s canons may shoot at one enemy target in range. This shot cannot have its range or rank i…[Read more]
I was thinking, for the Axiom, that I might just change her ability to be a speed boost on that one turn. It’ll just make it easier all around, while still maintaining a similarity to the original draft idea.
I have once again fallen behind on posts; so double today!
Coming at you now are the first French pieces of Eldest Seas
@Woelf: I can see what you mean about Axiom’s ability as breakable. I’ve written up a possible edit for her second ability though
1. Once per turn, if this is at her cargo limit, and you can draw a straight line to her Home Island, you may eliminate one of this ship’s crew. If you do, she gets +S+S to her base move, but can only be given move…[Read more]
Well, it has been more than too long since I’ve posted here.
So I do believe a double post is in order tonight.
–Ambassador: Crew of any nationality may use their abilities on this ship.
–Repeating Guns: When this ship is given a shoot action, you may declare that she is using repeating guns. If all cannons hit during that…[Read more]
@Xerecs: I like that ability as-is, but that’s probably because I helped you make it lol
Yes, I have returned. But I didn’t bring pizza, I brought a couple more American pieces from Eldest Seas! So let’s get into it!
–Blockade Runner: This ship gets +1 to ramming and boarding rolls. This ship can’t have her masts rammed off.
15. USS…[Read more]
Alright, Xerecs I hear you there about the Subjugator.
I can start edit works on her, and release an official retcon at or near the end of this faction.
Until then, I’ve got the next two American Pieces from Eldest Seas! A couple of crew this time.
–Reroll: Once per turn, you may reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you…[Read more]
Alright, I lied. Ima post more today, not yesterday
SO, back to the Americans of Eldest Seas! (skipping #10 for now because it has Repeating Guns)
–Canceler: Once per turn, one crew or ship within S of this ship cannot use its ability this turn.
–Privateer: This piece may use its abilities on any ship, but it…[Read more]
@Xerecs: Yes; the second shots happen after all of the first ones.
Also, yes; ALL viable cannons must be fired and hit in order to activate Repeating Guns.
One of the reasons why (I think) the majority of RG ships have one cannon rank across the board, or have very similar/close ones.
Not an update post, but a question.
On my custom Keyword, Repeating Guns, should I make the following changes:
Repeating Guns: When this ship is given a shoot action, you may declare that she is using repeating guns. If all cannons hit during that shoot action, each cannon may shoot again. (This action does not count…[Read more]
An extra cargo can probably be arranged. How would that affect the point cost?
Also, there is one crew, of the eight Americans, that has no link 😅😂
Alrighty, who’s ready for some more Americans from Eldest Seas?
’cause here they are! 😃
–Man-O’-War: Once, before you give this ship a shoot action, roll a d6. On a result of an odd number, her cannons become 2-rank for this turn. On a result of an even number, she eliminates two masts with each hit for this…[Read more]
@Xerecs: I’m sure you’d still find a way 😂
Hello again, all!
Time for more Americans from Eldest Seas!
–Sub-Hunter: This ship may shoot at submerged targets within S of her.
–World-Hater: This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against any [non-faction] ship.
5. USS Breach
Cannons: 2L, 3L, 3L, 2L
@Ben: That is a lot of pieces 😂
I like the cross-faction link with the King of Alnor; it’s something that WK did that one time and then never experimented with again, really, which is a shame since it opens a bunch of story-driven possibilities.
I especially like Bahamut 😃 (What can I say, I’m a dragon-lover)
While I know nothing about its…[Read more]
Hello, hello, hello, everybody!
I’m back from my winter holiday break (If you’re not, then why are you reading this? Go eat some food or enjoy the company of friends / family) and today, we complete the Spanish from Pirates of the Eldest Seas!
–Reverse Captain: After completing a shoot action, this ship may move as a free action.
17. La Corbeta…[Read more]
@Ben: Yes, architecture and carpentry is a reference to the custom ships you’ve made 😂
I don’t think it matters if you haven’t actually made models for them, since they’re still playable on vassal, and they still exist online etc.
Since we’re here, let’s get to the last of my User Crew!
Admiral Wulf Skuller
Ability: Fleet Admiral.…[Read more]
@Xerecs: From what I recall, Dominic Freda was 4 points, and he’s basically this version of Ramirez, but with Explorer instead of Helmsman. I don’t usually like boosting point costs based on anything that isn’t the ability costs, so that’s why he’s 5 and not 6.
Quick update: Next Eldest Seas post will be a double one, wrapping up the Spanish, and…[Read more]
