Hi all,

I am very interested into joining the Corrington Empire. But I don't really exactly understand what Kind of ship I can build. 

As my fictional character is officer on a middle sized ship with a few cannons I don't really know if that's already too big.

It would destroy my character story if I have no way but to make a small ship 

Greetings, sir! :pir-classic:

You can build any kind of ship - however, for RP'ing reasons, our rules state that you can "promote" yourself as high as Commander, which means anything less than a frigate, in terms of command. For higher ranks, the admiralty handles promotions on the basis of merit.

In BobS, that translates to something like a class 5 ship (see more here), which includes ships of considerable size. (3 to 4 midsections of the large hull pieces)

What sort of ship size are you imagining? :pir-blush:

My personal recommendation is to start a lowly lieutenant, to play your advancement up the ranks. 

In any case, welcome in our little pond here! :pir-grin:

It would be something like the Small Imperial Flagship from 1992, that size. And he is Captain of the small but fast warship.

So that size should be totally ok?

Small hulls with one middle part section. Just if I can get my son to take apart Brickbeard's Bounty for that project will get more interesting, but it will still not be bigger than one middle hull section.

That would probably be a class 3 vessel, the perfect command for an aspiring Lieutenant, or young commander! :pir-laugh:

You can find examples of ships build for BoBS here: Ship index. It is not up to date with all ships, but there is loads of interesting examples for inspiration.

For tips, work in progress feedback, and general questions or inspiration, when building ships, you can also look into our shipwrights guild hall.

To officially join the game, you have to make a small introduction of your character. (This guide may be helpful) If you need any feedback on that, you can always ask here or in the general thread.

Cheers!

EDIT: I should add that you get a free license for a class 2 ship when signing up, so a small trader or warship may be a good place to start. Otherwise, funding for a class three can probably be secured too, for instance through the Bank of Corrington Pioneer Loan Scheme found here.

Hello Fellas. I am gonna introduce my sigfig character:

 

Lieutenant Clay Carling

Grown up as a child of a Imperial Soldier for Corrington, Clay grew up as the only child if his parents. 

As his father died during duty for his country, Clay began reading history, studied martitim warfare and tactics, he always dreamed if being admiral one day.

He joined the Naval Forces as a usual Sailor, becoming the quickest and youngest lieutenant of his country.

Beside becoming the best admiral of the country one day, the other dream of the young Clay Carling is to find who killed his father, as the cause of death remain unknown.

He suspects other country's Naval Forces of being responsible for his father's death.

He is extremely loyal and a tall young man, a genius in warfare but a hot head. His antipathy against other empires is being a problem in some people's eyes. He is obsessed with his work, studying war tactics and reading about strength and weaknesses of other Naval Forces, loves classical music and good political conversation. He is very ambitious and imperialistic.

His arrive with his new own ship, the HMS Annettanian, the first under his command in Terra Nova, is making a lot of promises but there are also worries and doubts.

Is the young man able to become a famous and successful Admiral, or is his hot head causing to much problems and confrontations with other big nations...

Lieutenant Clay Carling

Crew: Lieutenant Carling, 4 Soldiers

Cannons: 0

Small Cannons: 2 (one each side but movable so up to 2 cannons ready to open fire in the same direction)

Weapons: 4 Muscets, 2 Sabres

Ship: 3 small parts, front back and one middle hull part. One Cabin small with one door and two small windows at the back, two big each side. Big stairs. Caravel like Chritoph Columbus' Santa Maria. Space for about 12 barrels (before the cabin and under the front is a lot of space)

Soldiers: young and inexpierenced, but the best fighters of their class. High profile snipers.

Lieutenant Carling: young and inexpierenced like his crew, extremely smart and also a very good sniper, quick decisions but aggressive warfare. Shoots first, then asks. But is good and quick at learning. High hopes of calming down when maturing. Has been always the best in his class.

So I hope I did it right Sir. Please tell me your orders to license my ship. I am sorry but the rating system is way too complicated for me to count it on myself. I am very excited of starting my new adventure in the new world... I promise to always follow my orders and do to my best for the crown and the country.

God save Queen Annetta

Sincerely Yours 

  Lieutenant Carling

To Lieutenant Carling of the HMS Annettanian,

You are hereby required and directed to make your way to the nearest senior officer and report for duty, there to join in local efforts against piracy, or whatever duties your seniors may require.

Good save the Queen

Rear-admiral Fletcher, RN

Commander-in-Chief, Terra Novan fleet

OOC: Nice introduction and welcome amongst our ranks! I didn't want to dictate where in Terra Nova your adventures should start, so you are free to decide yourself. Also, you should post the ship (a class 3, I would say) in a separate topic, if you want to use it for the ship action (MRCA). Additionally, @Darnok has volunteered as a mentor to help you get started, as we know the rules can be a bit hard to get into, and I expect he will contact you soon and help you with your first ship license and builds in this world. :pir-classic:

Sir Rear Admiral Fletcher.

I think I did it without a new thread, don't really know as I did the licence form and submitted it.

So where is the nearest Senior Office that I can report to, I want to receive my very first orders and go with my crew and fulfil my duty.

God save the queen

Damn, it seems the pictures of @Captain Dee in the first post (Queen Annetta, Department of Time) have just disappeared. This seems to be true for all of his pics, as the thread for the DoT is affected as well. :pir-sceptic:

:hmpf_bad:

I used "them" to host my pics only because it was extremely easy to do from a phone.

They were a part of Photobucket, so the change to paid services seemed inevitable.

They might have deleted the pics I had uploaded, but I still have all the originals in hi-res. Take that, Photo*uckit. :smug:

I have set up a Bricksafe account but haven't used it yet. I don't exactly leap for joy at the thought of going through this all over again just to restore the lost images. :facepalm:

P.S. Just so you know, they hosted pics all the back to 2004. Two-thousand-four!! The late Jurassic, when dinosaurs still roamed the earth!! Aren't they just fantabulous?? :hmpf:
