  1. But attacking Pirates is not an act of Piracy, is it? That would mean that every British vessel that hunted a pirate ship in the past, would be pirates as well? Prio attacked ships they considered pirates (due their previous actions against Prio vessels). It is not like they attacked other Sea Rat vessels out of the blue? (plus: don't forget that another Sea Rat has the Prince Alex captured right now. Was this a Black Flag actions or not?)
  2. I find this is a very intersting reasoning of you. You say that you (or any Sea Rat) can attack any PC or NPC, but the victim is not allowed to attack the aggressors the next round because those vessels are suddenly no "black flag" anymore? I think the rules about Black Flag is very clear. So or those attacking vessels were flying the Black Flag, and thus were still pirates in the eyes of Prio when they attacked the aggessing vessels. Or those vessels weren't flying the Black Flag (when attacking the Palmetto), and thus have committed an act of war against Prio? When analysing the whole discussion, I think we (or at least the Sea Rats) should draw a border between actions in "Black Flag" mode and actions in name of the Sea Rats. For me it is confusing, and I guess for Prio it is confusing as well that it are Sea Rats who are asking money for 2 detained vessels while they were dealing with Pirates and not Sea-Rats. This is the danger ofcourse that when not keeping the difference between the both, it can happen again in the future that "Black Flag" vessels owned by a Sea Rat will be considered as a "Sea Rat" vessel because it are (other?) Sea Rats who do the communication and not the Black Flag Captain. So when choosing the Black Flag path, keep it that way till the world knows that the vessels are not to be considered "Black Flag" anymore. Because if you don't, it is too easy to confuse pirates and Sea Rats. I hope you understand what I mean. If everything was played out as Black Flag actions (on the Sea Rats side), there would be no LoM against Sea Rats now...
  3. Just wondering where exactly I missed the point that the Sea Rats their intention is to invade Prio? I thought this started as a trade/navy war? :p
  4. Don’t forget the 7 residences in Alexport are player built residences. It is like saying that Terelli is a small Hamlet just because only a few player made properties are there. I do understand the confusion as most of us expect the account sheet to be as true/complete as possible. But we should not forget that it just shows the EGS developments. All 4 factions started with nothing but 3 warships (which doesn’t sound realistic, does it).
  5. I can understand your frustrations haha :p Well, I like her. She isn't a CGH beauty (but what ship is? :p) but she is nice and powerfull in her own way. Nice job Kwatchi!
  6. MAESTRO Declaration of Protection towards the nation of Romantica. Since the very beginning of the Prio rebellion, the Mpya Stedor All-Encompassing Science Trade & Resources Organisation (MAESTRO) has been a partner of Romantica. Soldiers of MAESTRO fought back to back with the Prio soldiers, forging a strong future between MAESTRO and Romantica. The bond between the two entities translated in a MAESTRO residence/embassy in Alexport and a Prio residence/embassy in Trador. Trade has flourished between the two. Due the recent events around Prio, MAESTRO will once more fullfill its duties as loyal partner and send resources towards Prio. Given the weak position of our partner, we would also like to inform that we hereby declare us being the protectors of Prio. Any imperial power preying on Prio or one of its subjects, will have to deal with MAESTRO as well. As first step, Prio will receive a loan of 8000 db's with no determined payback date. This is to be used to rebuild a fleet and defensive structures. Long live Romantica, long live MAESTRO! July 11, 618 AE General Samu 'Whitedragon' Head of MAESTRO Military Operations & Defensive Structures (MAESTRO-MODS)
  7. I thought you should MOC the changes. But I don't know how to do the paperwork...
  8. They actually have to build something. But maybe I should make it: 1-3 vessels (same flagship): 1 small property 4-6 vessels (same flagship): 1 medium property or 2 small 7+ vessels (same flagship): 1 large property or equivalent. Hahaha it would be a ghost town then without ghost ships as those ghost ships are not able to build :p In all seriousness, I think/hope this is a nice initiative to reward those visiting a mayor trade port. The lesser people in the harbour (because of the extra work), the more interesting for those who do visit it (and make the building effort). On top, you have your extra monthly income due a property or the one-time reward when letting Trador licence your build. And the more properties, the more interesting for you when visiting Trador again in the future Yes Blame it on the strange Trador bureaucracy Hmmm MAESTRO is an all time ally of Prio. We sent troops in their independence war and they have an embassy in Trador...
  9. The Trador Development Tax What is the point of taxes when the owners are already filthy rich? Can one of those ports that raised taxes the past months show that it actually benefitted the growth? As progressive city, visiting fleets will have now to "pay" a development tax. 1-3 vessels (same flagship): 1 small property 4-6 vessels (same flagship): 1 medium property or 2 small 7+ vessels (same flagship): 1 large property or equivalent. Properties to be licenced before the next MRCA started So for every different flagship, a property is wanted. One vessel sailing on its own = 1 flagship If help needed by licencing or not interested in licencing, the city of Trador (or one of its council members) is intersted in buying the licencing rights of your property for 10 (small)/ 20 (medium) / 30 (large) db's. The Trador Development Tax will be in effect the next MRCA. Ships currently in the harbour are free of tax for this month. July 9 - 618 AE Sir Yohannes Ethiximus, Mayor of Trador

  11. Due to moving to a new place has began (yey, bigger hobby room for me :D), I fear I'll won't be able to build a lot the following months. I hoped to finish some MRCA & AMRCA related builds yesterday, but without succes. So my AMRCA will be on a break for a while.

  15. Americans :p The heaviest 1st rate ever was the Spanish ship Nuestra Senora de la Santisima Trinidad with 140 guns :p About being the largest warship, I think those Chinese warships were bigger :)
