Turn 17 Results.

Yes It's that time of the week again. And here are the latest turn results.  As you can see from the turn sequence all the movement happened at the end of the turn which has not been so fortunate as some people would hope.

I WILL NEED TO DO NEXT TURN ON FRIDAY29th November 2014. A DAY EARLIER AS I AM BUSY ALL NRXT WEEKEND>




 The overall picture of the board. All the pictures following this are taken anti-clockwise starting at the back left.
 Firstly we can see the Spanish Frigate heading towards 2 prizes. Is it possible that they will be claimed for Spain! If so Don Reidy's crew will be rich indeed.

 Don Reidy is not totally in the clear though as HMS Agamemnon may have different ideas. And may turn on "Mecedes"
 These 3 Spanish ships may have slipped past the British. Or they may circle back to bring more destruction. Only time will tell.
 A fire was extinguished on HMS Agamennon last turn and has started again this turn due to El Interceptor as both ships exchanged broadsides at short range.
 Both Seb and Millsy are past the British and one of the two is heading to HMS Challenge with mischief on their mind.
 Captain Campbell and Senior Lee are still escorting each other from the battle, neither is strong enough to claim the other as a prise or weak enough to yield their own ship. They have literally fought to exhaustion and lack enough crew now to decide the contest.
Senior Loki has also carried out a boarding action against the larger ship HMS Pachyderm. The action is ongoing but the smart money has got to be on HMS Pachyderm as the larger ship. Both ships did manage to fire at each other before any boarding actions were attempted. Now only time will tell the out come is by no means certain.

OK folks, that's it for this week but REMAMBER>

Next turn is on Friday as I am busy all next weekend.


All the best to you all. Have a good weekend.

  1. Great stuff yet again Clint. I fear it really doesn't look too good for the British though I trust all the crew of the HMS Pachyderm needs is a hearty cheer to repel them Spanish boarders. Thanks for posting :-)

    1. Only the Dice gods will determine what happens on HMS Pachyderm. The boarders may be repelled and then the captain has to decide if he wans to board the other ship. Generally speaking you should not try to board a larger ship!
      Thank you Blax.

  2. Another boarding! I don't know why, but I really like it when that happens. Here's to the taking of booty and wealth for the captain and crew!

    1. Just because I mentioned a country pub one time it has gotten you all excited. A town pub in this era would of course be a better prospect as it would earn you more money and be better for deliveries etc...

      Thank you Anne.

    1. Thank you Peter. Maybe the cargo of kindling was not such a good Idea.

  5. I have to thank you again for doing this for us Clint, I'm busy elsewhere these past weeks, but this is quite fun.

    I'm glad my crew is not talking to the fish just yet!
