Note the superficy of the main sail, cut in an old black tee-shirt.
Each broadside is are made to care six canons on two rows.
Skull and bow canons complete the menacing shape of the ship.
The use of official military flags is one of the stratagemes used by my pirates in order to get closer to the ships they're hunting.
When as near as possible, Tony Oil-Spitter just have to blow on the torch in order to throw a destructive fire that can burn the hull, masts and crewmen of the target, so that the boarding is just an additionnal task ; this strategy is inspired by the fire-ships. During the battles, fire-ships were thrown to a man-o-war in order to neutralize it as fast as possible, and even if it just consisted in an old downgraded ship put in fire and pushed by the wind, it was one of the most feared weapons, because it was, obviously, able to transmit a devastating fire to every wooden ship.
The captain of the ship, Sir Surscout, is a renegade corsair decided to obtain a ransom thanks to his last hostage, the Empire Princess, captured on the last ship he sunk.
Captain Brickbeard was downgraded to a pilote job, but his alliance with Surscout seems to hide something unusual since he uses to be a solitary sea-hunter.
The main mast is very high for the shortness of the hull, as a consequence, the stability of the ship can be endangered.
Captain Brickbeard, Sir Surscout and Princess Adelie, wish you were not disappointed by the exposition of the Charon. Anyway, they don't accept any visits onboard.
