This is my entry to El Cazador’s Odd Fleet Challenge.
The strategy is simple – crush the other fleet. The scorpion runs out and slashes opponents, causing Fear to spread among their ranks. The Plague and the Runes of Death wreak havoc on crews, allowing Davy to possess them. Terrox is the fastest kraken and can move faster with Davy’s bonus. The bonus may not be used since it uses the Scorpion’s action for that turn. The Proud Tortoise cleans up the scraps and acts as a third attack ship. No forts were included because this fleet is not designed to get any gold.
(Originally my grand plan was to put copier Davy Jones aboard the Bloody Blade and have him copy the Longship keyword from the Hlidskjalf, which would also give him access to the longship’s secondary ability, which is extremely obnoxious. That would make the Bloody Blade an extreme offensive and defensive threat. The Libellule with a helmsman and explorer would have acted as the main gold runner. It was a good plan, until I remembered that we can’t use Limit for this challenge. Oh well.)
