Terraversan Letters of Marque - The Second Terraversan War

Recommended Posts

To all the citizens, nations, and peoples of the Brick Seas!

The free and independent nation of Terraversa is under a ruthless and unjust attack by the forces of the dishonourable scoundrel who styles himself Philip I, King of Oleon and Guelph. As such, I Grand Admiral L'Olius authorise the issue of Letters of Marque and Reprisal to any citizen of the Brick Seas for apprehension, seizure and taking of Ships, Vessels and Goods belonging to the Empire of Oleon or her allies.

A Terraversan Letter of Marque will give any captain holding said letter the right to attack any vessels sailing under the Olean flag, which shall be considered as right and lawful prizes of war in all courts. In addition to any prizes taken on the high seas, the Terraversan Admiralty will further reward any captain that accepts a letter of marque with a bounty of 200DB for any Olean ship (or any ship allied with Oleon) sunk or captured, to be paid upon proof of the event. 

Signed,

In the city of Westface, on this day, the 30th September, 620 years after the fall of the Great Empire by

Grand Admiral L'Olius,

OOC: Should you wish to obtain a Terraversan LoM, simply post in this thread to have one issued. If you are captaining a fleet, only your flagship requires a LoM (you don't need one for each vessel in the fleet). A TER LoM will allow you to attack Olean vessels (or vessels holding an Olean LoM) without any diplomatic consequences for you options. Be aware though a LoM will mean that, Olean warships can attack you back.

Sorry for the confusion.

In the Kings Port Advertiser and Ship List (Vol. 5, Issue 4) Oleon has 64 ships at Terraversa. Seems like a suicide squad.

Ships holding a letter of marque may attack Oleon vessels anywhere in the Brick Seas. You don't have to attack the Olean battle fleet around Terraversa!!!

Will we be payed for sinking or  capturing a OL ship?

Yes. As above a bounty of 200DB will be paid to any Captain that sinks or captures an Olean vessel while sailing under a Terraversan letter of marque.

EDIT: I realised that you specified a TER vessel. These are TER letter's of marque so no, you definitely won't paid for sinking TER vessels. Oleon are free to issue their own LoM if they so desire but any bounty you'd have to take up with them.

Oh, that was a mistake on my part, I meant an OL vessel. I believe I edited it.

I know, but that doesn't change the course of the war!!! Even if 20 Oleon ships are sunk or captured somewhere, Terraversa will lose. Terraversa can only win if they have Godzilla or Chuck Norris.

 

Chuck Norris swims to the Olean battle fleet around Terraversa and punches on every ship a hole under the waterline with his fist. Then he surrounded the oleander land troops. He shoots everyone with his flintlock pistol.

 

For those who didn't understand.  Chuck Norris flintlock pistol is a Gatling gun. Because it can reload them very, very ......... quickly.

I think the ideas are good, but it doesn't change the course of the war. The half island has already been conquered.

"It is known..." :pir-grin:

Well, if you are so certain, take Bodi's advice and bet on your winning horse instead. BoBS is a dynamic world, and if events unfold so that Terraversa becomes an Olean colony, so be it. It is up to you to make your choices, but believing anything is given will probably prove wrong.

In the past, we have seen things change over night - you never know how SR, COR, or ESL may react to the prospect of a lost Terraversa, and so far, the Terraversan are still sitting on about half of their own island. How many mercenaries, volunteers or LoMs will join either side? We do not know, but it is certainly an interesting time.

Additionally, we do not know OL's end-game. Perhaps their objective is exclusive trading or docking rights, or total dominion. We don't know - so guessing at the outcome may be fun, but your predictions have only two possible outcomes: You can be wrong, or you can be lucky! :pir-tongue:

There were a few manifestations in the streets of Granoleon, and our illustrious King Phillip is aware of their request, he'll take good care of his subjects, as he always did.

I don't really think it matters too much who wins, as long as we fight valiantly for those who we think are right. That said this is hilarious. 

What about Godzilla though?

"It's Gojira, you moron!" quoted from a movie I actually was talking about with one of my coworkers this morning.

Woot woot!  I love Letters of Marque - now just got some thinking to do weighing the alternatives here, :grin: :laugh:  And maybe time to build up the fleet a bit too - Captain Nordau's still waiting on his new ship... :innocent: :grin:
