    [SR-FB] The Jilted Maiden

    Many thanks! Im really liking this the more I look at it too lol! The sails... I need to come up with a better solution but so far this is where I'm at with them lol. I got rather used to just being able to cut sails to fit lol. This woman is on a war path lol liquored up and pissed off lol a frying pan would do her no justice lol. You checked out my stern... Lol Glad you like her... I had fun creating her! Thanks! Hopefully just as intimidating on the brick seas! And don't worry I won't tell anyone you like blue instead of red lol

    [SR-FB] The Jilted Maiden

    Well so far I don't have Capt Wolfs luck with keeping ships afloat... But It will take more than a skiff with a couple pea shooters to take her down... Hell hath no furry like a woman scorned! Shes named Jilted Maiden for a reason as she's a force to be avoided.

    [SR-FB] LaPetunia

    A fast and maneuverable little skiff she is ain't she? The Captain swigged another swallow of Bru-Haha seemingly talking to himself. Meanwhile the crew was busy running drills on the new guns they just acquired at rock bottom prices from a friendly pair of smugglers in a rowboat. She even got a lovely stern doesn't she boys? Again it seemed the Captain was talking to anyone who would listen. Captain seemingly drunk: Oh she's a lovely little Petunia with a pirate crew... With a Pirate Crew... With a Pirate Crew... Oh she's a lovely little Petunia ... With a Pirate Crew ... Oh won't yee come and sail with Meeeee! OoC: this ship will be featured in a later build comments and criticism welcomed!

    Thanks! I tried to keep it simple but detailed so it wasn't the center piece of the larger build I was building! Your ship skills are improving... Just keep trying new techniques!

    Thanks! I am really happy with her hope she will be profitable! Thanks for the compliment! I can't take full credit for the stern as it was originally mimicking a other moc but all the added detailing and the Lantern implementation I can claim. I added some flex tubing to accent the curves a bit more... A Maiden should have a swell stern right lol

    Even a plate with tiles would be acceptable honestly.

    [SR-FB] Das Rathskeller Letters.

    The pegs came out of necessity lol both those hats are far too large for the booths but I'm glad they were I think it added a neat dynamic to the scene. The idea when I built it was to use it more than once lol so hopefully more scoundrels show up!
  12. Aye tharty one and tree men in a dingy it is then... Lol all joking aside I'm curious to see the action unfold both as a spectator and as a game mechanics intetest
  13. Sources from an unknown Rat amongst Rats disclosed to the KPA that Captain Larvey and The Drunken Monkey were diverting to Tortuga due to "taking on water". It's confirmed that Captain Larvey is indeed in Tortuga as that same Rat spotted him at a local Rathskeller where tonight's special is red tuna. He wasn't the only infamous Captain there though. It seems that Bluebeard's recruiting more lads already after the capture of some of his crews recently. Another lowlife enters the room the lesser known Captain of LaPetunia and his trained Falcon. Brandi is a great barmaid and she's often told what a good wife she would be ... Suzette is Brandi's daughter... She's easy on the eyes just like her mama Apparently too easy and this young sailor seems to have lost his sea legs when she winked at him from across the room. But back to our story at hand. It seems as though Captain Larvey being the cunning sailor he is .... ... And apparently a braggard! He was heard saying "Me goal was to bring er keel up to get the tar patch above the water line to fix er good an proper" As he told it, he began to take on water and ordered the men to unload ballast, tossing it to the sea to lighten her. He apparently forgot he had locked a man below as punishment, but ordered any dead weight thrown over just as well. He now claims that The Drunken Monkey handles better and as proof he sailed twice the distance to Tortuga just to prove it. He claims he intends to add a couple more guns to her as well now that she handles so well. OoC: These builds settle two purposes for me it explains the stats change for The Drunken Monkey and explains how she wound up in Tortuga. Comments and criticism welcomed

    [SR-FB] LaPetunia

    Thanks... This all started to "fit" a 48x48 scene... Then the scene expanded to 64x64 so I completed the whole ship lol not just the stern. Thanks... I wonder where I got the Idea from??? Lol .... it's a lot of hinges and curved tiles but I think I like the effect Thanks I tried to give her a bit of width as the base started fairly narrow... Hopefully she will see no squalls then lol Thanks! She is quick... Might just outrun the peashooters from your "target ships" lol
  15. Haha love it... Well played indeed
  16. Ohh what sorts of nice vessels you have in store ... Welcome back

    DOT-111 tank cars

    Those look great... I like how you showed the breakdown! Is that a dekalb seed industry on your siding?
  22. @Drunknok I learned this from my mother a "horticulturalist" which is technically science which your faction is ever so good at
  23. It's important to add that Poinsettia also grows in other less popular commercial varieties such as white, yellowish orange and the most fascinating to look at blue! A bit of knowledge: the plant needs an uninterrupted period of darkness to bloom however if you "trick" it's light cycle by artificial means (covering) you can make it bloom several times a year!

    [OL-FB] Acropolis gunboat no.2

    Not if the mortar fire comes from its stern! Mwahahahaha. Another great little gunner I worry you might need a bigger pearldiver to keep the rudder in the water due to that large caliber cannon.

    It's amazing what gold can build even in a new settlement! I love so many details of this building... But I agree I would have rather seen a brickbuilt door for the front
