  1. That is exactly what it is. half is construction, half is paper work. It says this in the rules (or it did in the beginning anyway.) This is why Sea Rats pay half, there is no paperwork, but there is still materials.
  2. I feel if someone had a cricket handy, that this cutting could be really easy, and done in mass numbers quickly. Anyway, as always, these look great, Ayrlego!
  3. Stop spreading viscous filth! Gods Save the Queen!
  4. Historically, blockades are not constant, their sizes would shift with ships coming in and out. Also, one or two large ships could usually blockade a small city that did not have some sort of naval defense on hand. It is probably noticeable to any who are in those towns, that it does not seem that more than five vessels are in sight at any one time. Also, I would like to note that there are 1000s of threads, if you need immediate answers, PMing me is easier. Or asking one of your leaders to ask in the court works too.
  5. To break blockades, you may send a predator fleet to the zone, since you know where the enemy is, there is a higher chance of intercept. Also you can send me a PM to remind me that they are going on this specific mission. Finally, you CAN be creative with your fleets... IE there is a way to send more complicated battle fleets then what is normally sent.
  6. A few of these are still sailing in the list, they just have not been intercepted.
  7. can you link it again, I must have missed your post here. This is the thread I check for those. But there were a couple times where i picked up reading and may have missed a page or three.
  8. You already nailed it. On a side note, I would like to say, that not all the game mechanics were meant to be shown to the general public from the beginning, and some pieces, ever. This was a conscious decision early on so that people would not powergame, and would have to take time and "probe" the system, to add some discovery.overtime and add more mystery. Most of the game mechanics are now public, but I think that in MRCA II we will have a probing period as well. There are a lot more things to do in MRCA II, so it should be interesting.
  9. Hey, it was in the forms and said it sailed! So it sailed, perhaps we need an automated checking mechanism Yes Scarst did not put them in there when he wrote that... Its Elysabethtown, Fuerte Unido and Trador --- in the current MRCA, sending a fleet to clear the zone will be the best way to break these new blockades. In MRCA II, there is a specific action for that. We won't see MRCA II this month, but if the blockades last, I thought you should know that. In the new MRCA there is, right now, its luck if they get recaptured. However, we could work on some sort of pre MRCA II story plot so that you could build a story to get the boats back. So, there is something wrong with the algorithm that pulled ship class and told me what each ship is, some ships were mixed up -- I thought I caught all of these, but it looks like I missed some. That is probably what happened. It showed up as a warship, this is one I missed. 345 is the new total, clear sailing! The blockade is NOW active, it was not during the month they sailed.
  10. The new MRCA deadline is March 19th. Elostirion, much of what you have asked is based on gameplay balance. I can't really get into going through them line by line tonight, I will try to share some thoughts in the next week. Although, some may be moot, since we will be publishing new rules soon (hopefully! Most have been written since December)
  11. Kings Port Advertiser and Ship List New Terra’s most reliable source for shipping news. February 617. VOL 2 ISSUE 1 The War Goes Well For Mardier! A bright sun is shining on Mardier today in these dark times, for the lesser nations learn their place this month, at the heel of Mardier’s boot. The Mardierian fleet has blockaded three major Eslandolian ports and is awaiting action from the rogue nation. Surely king Alphonse XIII is awaiting a swift surrender from the green menace, along with a great amount of compensation for this unwarranted hostility. Rumors are already flooding in that major Eslandolian moguls are already turning tail and fleeting to Redder pastures in Corrington. Among the brilliant news lies a bit of levity, the Garvian fleet that was seen heading towards our fair Kingsport was repelled. “How?” you may ask. “Surely our navy is busy dealing with the Green coats!?!” you cry. Both are valid inquiries dear reader. The truth is in the Tuna. The Bumbel corporations Merchant Armada seeing the danger to our beloved city sailed out to meet the Garvian fleet and made quick work of the scoundrels sinking a ship and capturing two others. When asked for comment the leader of the Bumbel Corporation, Harvey W. Bumbel III, was kind enough to give us a quote: “The Garvian menace affects us all, we must all do our part to ensure our great nation endures these malicious attacks. The Bumbel corporation is committed to the security of this nation and the good people we serve. It is for that reason our fishing fleets have been granted notes of Marque by our gracious King Alphonse XIII. Starting today our fishing fleets will be manned and protected by a minimum of one war galleon. And I will personally reward and take responsibility for any Garvian or Eslandolian ship captured during this war. I call upon the good people of the world to see these scoundrels for the scourge they are and take up arms against them. Today they attack Mardier but tomorrow it could be your home!” These chilling words have already made quite a stir among those on the streets. Rumors are abounding that Corrington has already made a deal with the Bumbel Corporation to strike at Eslandolia’s colonies. There have been an awful many Mardierans returning from Skaford Heights claiming a growing foreign presence, a shade other than Green, on the island. Kracken Attackin’ ? Although last month’s paper was full of tales of the Kracken, this month there does not seem to be much news. Although it was said that the Kracken was under control by no other than Queen Beatrice of Oleon! Supposedly she uses the foul beast to attack her enemies, foreign and domestic! Beware a woman scorned, indeed! Great Treasure? The Bumble Tuna Company’s pay ship LaCrosse sunk off of Terraversa two weeks past. Surely the adventureous salvager can find the ship before the company does! It is said that she had over 500DBs aboard when she was lost. Hurricane Season a comin’! Last year’s hurricanes were devastating to the New World trade. If my bones are correct, a new storm may be brewing here in the southern waterways of New Terra. Travel at your own peril!

  12. It is in the pinned index post .
  13. You can do anything -- you don't have to be part of the EGS at all, or you can build and be eased into it. If you were to build a warship that did not fall under your free ship slot, then I am sure we could loan you the money to register it, or if you were building it for the crown, the crown would pay for it. Build away!
