This week I return with the currently completed selection of Pirate pieces in my Pirates of the Baltic Sea custom set!
Name: Fallen Eagle
Ability: Crew of any nationality may use their abilities on this ship. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against…[Read more]
<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;”>One thing you could maybe do is make the six roll also include the five effect so it eliminates all crew (or just named crew?) before capturing the ship, so you’re still getting the ship but it won’t be as capable as it was…
<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;”>This should be limited to once per turn, so it can’t be infinitely chained with lucky rolls. It might be a minor issue on a single-mast ship, but imagine it being copied by a 10-master, or even a 5-mast ship. It should als…
Another round from Baltic Sea – this time it’s the currently completed selection of German pieces.
Name: SMS Friedrich der Grosse
Link: The Black Baron
Ability: Broadsides Attack. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against pirates.
Flavor Text: The flagship of…[Read more]
Round 3 of customs from Pirates of the Baltic Sea; this time around I have an entire faction! The Cursed have a more limited presence in this set, and so they were quicker to be finished. Have a look:

Time for the next round of customs from Pirates of the Baltic Sea!
First off, two Swedish ships I had forgotten to post last time:
Rarity: Special Edition
Ability: Once per turn, one of this ship’s cannons may shoot again if it misses.
Flavor Text: Mars has been…[Read more]
I had completely blanked on the fact that the abilities contradicted, thank you for pointing that out. The vessel that piece is based off of was labeled as a yacht in the database I was using and so I just tacked on the keyword without really thinking about it. As for the keyword itself, it’s a holdover from the first ship made for the set from…[Read more]
Going to start posting my customs from Baltic Sea here again as well as the discord as this feels a bit more permanent than discord; to start, here’s all the currently completed pieces for Sweden:
Ability: Broadsides Attack.
Flavor Text:…[Read more]
@Woelf the ability was meant to be like schooner. As I said, I need to do some heavy wording changes, as it’s supposed to be the ship’s mid-point.

Fantastic! Will it be entirely based on history?
Not quite historical so much as more realistic than say Ocean’s Edge. There will be some ships/crew that are fictitious, while still being well within the realm of possibility. Also, just for a bit of fun and flavor, the Swedes will be getting a long ship or two, perhaps one for Germany to f…[Read more]
If it’s always going to be attached to a ship and has no use on its own, this would make more sense as Equipment.
It could take up no cargo space when revealed (deployed).
I’m thinking it could also be “detached” and give it’s effects to whichever ship is closest.
Another ship from my Pirates of the Baltic Sea custom set, based on MI028 Prussi…[Read more]
Hot Air Balloons
Basically a support unit like native canoes. Destroyed in one shot, no firepower. Must be towed behind a ship, but doesn’t reduce the ship’s speed (unless the ship’s base move is three movements, then it will go down to its first two). It reduces the die roll requirement for cannons by 1 unless it’s already a 2. You could also…[Read more]

Thanks, I’ll be sure to edit it.

I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag recently, and I wanted to create a ship and crew based on it, so here’s what I’ve come up with.
Relevant Keywords: Assassin: +1 to all boarding rolls. After a successful boarding party, roll a d6. On a 5 or a 6, eliminate one crew from the boarded ship (eliminates unique crew first).
Brig: This…[Read more]
I’m creating a new set, called Pirates of the Baltic Sea. It will add Sweden and Russia, as well as a Germany that has united about 100 or so years earlier than in our time line (and has a stronger navy). These factions will replace Spain, France, and America. So far I’ve only finished one ship, so here it is:
Relevant Keywords: Yacht: +1 to a…[Read more]
