I like that Scorpion. Despite my reluctance to use ships with one cargo space, I think I’d use this in a campaign o customs allowed game. Flavor text is particularly fun and nasty. 😀
I think it’s better.
Okay then, into the spreadsheet it goes.
Bedlam seems very confusing, and aptly named. 😀 However, I think I like it. I could certainly see using it in a big game.
What you call textured I would call marbled. Textured to me implies that there’s a difference I can feel in the fabric, if I was to run my hands across it.
In terms of which I prefer, I would say darker. A lighter colored ocean to me feels cartoonish or light and comical, which pirates is not. I much prefer the darker tones which feel more real…[Read more]
I’ve been going through my word doc for SpMg, mostly adding flavor text to things, but I’ve also been resolving some ‘unfinished’ or left for debate pieces. Mostly I’m not going to re-post them, but this one I think warrants it.
What it was/is currently:
Ability: Once per…
My bad for not posting the ability with the “new keyword”.
Eh. I knew what you were talking about. When I describe an ability like that, I don’t usually think of making a keyword, I’m using a short-hand.
With a recent influx I am happy to say that Pirates of the Epic Seas now has over 800 total game pieces!
Nice! SpMg tops out at around 343 pie…[Read more]
Interesting ship, I like the ability, especially since she’s got two very good cannons, and she’s got cargo space for some equipment. I’m not sure how I feel about any ship having an L+L base move though.
On the other hand, De Leon seems a bit of an OP hybrid. That combination of stats and abilities makes me worry a little. I think 15 points would be a better place to start.
I was kind of feeling the same way. I agree her cost should be higher, but I don’t think I’d change much else about her, since I’ve not seen that ability on larger ships.
The De Leon would be very good in low point games I think. That’s a lot of cargo and decent speed, plus a couple very good cannons. I’m not sure how I feel about her yet.
The way El Catedral is worded, it should be more than 5 gold. Unless you want to make it like the other forts that have a similar ability, and cap it at just +1 if there is gold…[Read more]
Phillip seems like a sleeper OP crew. You could stack that +1 to die roll onto anything (other than BA) and still get a second bonus from somewhere, such as a +1 to cannons/boarding rolls crew. 4 seems okay for now, though I think playtesting would be in order for him.
Speaking of Barton Smith, he’s actually made an appearance in SS, on the USS Eagan.
I think it would be funny to ask Woelf what he thinks Outbound Flight is worth. (sounds like plane travel btw, not Age of Sail) My initial guess would be about 60.
😀 Go ahead, let’s ask.
On a more serious note, I could knock off the second defensive ability, and leave only her L-range immunity. I actually might do that, since the more I look at…[Read more]
Two more! After these two, only two more in SpMg!
Lord of Skull Spiders
Ability: The Skull Spider Unique Treasure does not affect this ship.
Flavor: A strange half man half spider, this fiend is the only being who can command the legions of spiders.
Oh. I forgot/didn’t know I needed to include that one
I’ll fix that on my Google Doc.
For a bombardier, WK (and I) usually make the flame cannon the first cannon, going from left to right. So if the FV has a flame cannon of 3S, then just add another 3S cannon to the spread. If it’s not a 3S cannon, then amend your Doc to reflect it, and maybe re-…[Read more]
14. Fire Vulture
Cannons: 3S, 3S, 3S
Base Move: L
Where’s the bombardier cannon? I only see three.
I feel that Spinax is just too expensive. I don’t think she’s worth 17. Her second ability isn’t worth all that much, so I could see her at 15-16 instead.
I don’t think Krahnzi works. At a minimum I think the rolls should be cut in half (1-3 no effect, 4-6 have effects), it’s a very OP crew. Artaka is cool though.
Yeah….. I was looking at him again as I posted him. I’m thinking that I’ll loose his ability to eliminate masts, and just keep has cancelling ability. OP he may be, but I’ve worded him…[Read more]
To distinguish the flavor text from the rest of the ability text, and to help break up the post a little, could you perhaps put it in italics?
I feel the Musica could be a point or two cheaper, 13 instead of 15 maybe.
Klen might still be too cheap at 30….. 0.0
Faction Affiliation: American
I’m imagining the Gold Coast in a Jack Sparrow fleet. It seems like wonderful broken fun. 😀 The 3L+L means that the cannon has a L+L range, yes? Just checking to be sure.
The time has come! The first LE piece of the last of SpMg!
Ability: Junk.…[Read more]
Seems I made a mistake somewhere, as there are only 5 pre-built ships. We’ve seen three of them, now I present the final two!
Ability: After looking at treasure on a wild island, you may trade any one treasure from that island for a random treasure on any other wild…[Read more]
