  1. Commodore Dekker felt a wave of relief. The admiralty had seen fit to keep him in command of the trade squadron even after he had lost three ships, including his flagship, to a Sea Rat attack. But he was still anxious, as he had yet to see his new flagship. Arriving at the docks, he consulted with the naval agent. All was well. The Thunderer, sistership to the Stormbringer, had been readied for active service and was maneuvering in the harbor as the crew tested her running rigging. He need only fetch a longboat to go out and take command. Just a microbuild ship for the purpose of bringing the sistership online.
  2. Willem Guilder took his evening stroll through the garden. Here he could almost imagine he was back in Weelond, but for some reason he was still in King's Harbour. However, his ship was on its way, and his extended stay on the Corrish island was nearing an end. Just then one of his aides caught up to him. "Here you are, Gov'ner. I was lookin' all over for you. I was told you needed me, but they failed to mention where you was." "Well, you've found me, so all is well." Guilder let the man catch his breath for a moment, then continued. "Please see to it that these orders are delivered to the Secretary of the Navy. We need to commission the sistership of the Long Beard into service." "Aye, sir," replied the aide. "I heard about her. 'Twas a shame the Long Beard went down, but I hear she gave Zublius Von Wreck what fer, taking the pirate's ship from her. Better than a fair exchange if you ask me." "Indeed, the men made good with the capture of Hades' Hangman. The crew of the Long Beard have had quite the summer. But there is no rest for them, as the Long Beard II awaits." --- Just a quick build for the sistershipping requirements, and it gave me a chance to play around with a brick-paved walkway. The sand green tiles may seem like an odd choice, but I think they work well. All C&C welcome.
  3. Somehow, Eslandola's Willem Guilder had still not departed King's Harbour after travelling there for the Great Ball, and was becoming quite adept at conducting business while travelling. Last month he spent much time with his predecessor as Admius Legistrad of the Colonial Council, Román Fontonajo. Today finds Guilder sending off another set of dispatches. "See to it that this gets to the master of our shipyard. The MCTC is commissioning a sistership of the Piece of Eight," Guilder told his courier. "Yessir," the courier replied. "And might I say, sir, the Piece of Eight was a fine ship. One of the fastest on the seas. A sistership to her will be a fine addition to the MCTC fleet." "My thoughts exactly, Eduard. Now, off with you!" And the courier hurried away, dispatch in hand. --- Just a little build for the sistershipping requirement, and a chance to use my copy of the hall for the Great Ball that I never used at the time.
  4. Anthony Crol had received a dispatch from Willem Guilder, Director of the MCTC. He was to file the necessary paperwork to commission a sistership of the Lady of Madrice, which had been lost in a storm last month. Now captain of the Far Horizon, Tony had been first mate on the Lady of Madrice two years ago. The old sloop had a long record of service in the MCTC, and she was well past her prime. It seemed like everyone in the MCTC had been a part of her crew at some time or another, and all knew her affectionately as the Wench. When Tony entered the office, he was greeted by a gloomy old man with an ill-fitting wig. "State yer bizness" the man behind the desk said gloomily. "I'm here to file notice of the commissioning of the Lady of Madrice II." The old man perked up a bit. "Sistershipping the ol' Wench? Why in the names of Sol and Luna would anybody do that?" "Hey, she was a fine ship!" replied Tony defensively. "She was past her prime, but she had good lines and handled beautifully." "Harumph! Past her prime indeed!" Tony was clearly agitated. "Enough with the comments, old man. Scribble down the particulars in your records and I'll be on my way." --- Just a quick build as required for the sistershiping of the Lady of Madrice. I hadn't noticed I didn't get the hairpiece fully down on the clerk's head until I was editing the photo, so I figured I'd just write it into the story.
  5. "How's the work going on that old galleon? Have 'er ready yet?" "See for yourself. She's out of dry dock, just loading equipment and getting her ready to sail." "Why are they bringing her back into service anyway?" "Ah, the MCTC lost the Prince Fernando two months ago. You know, when we had all those bad storms. This ol' mistress of the sea is from the same class, so they're refitting her to replace it." ------ Just a small build to sistership the Prince Fernando.
  6. With the loss of an entire squadron, the Oleander colonial has received a terrible shock. Lagaufre, just landed in Eltina, jumped on another ship to travel to Granoleon. After a long and boring voyage, he reached his destination and presented himself at the door of Oleander Admiralty. Unfortunately, he wasn't allowed to get inside, visits forbidden without appointment. Our Lagaufre is not someone who give up so easily, he put his luggage aside and wait for monsieur de Beauregard. Many hours later... - Oh, my dear, a beggar. - No, mon chéri, he must be one of these captains who have lost their ships. - Poor guy, he must be broke. Take this, a doubloon. - Thank you, my good lady. - Hey, YOU! The officer over there, give my your letter, I'll hand on it to monsieur de Beauregard, you are a real embarrassment! His perseverance was rewarding, de Beauregard agreed to allocate 2 new ships to the colonial fleet, and assigned an officer to accompany him to the shipyards. - Romain! My friend! - Gaufre, old bloke, I thought you were retired. - Not yet, are you accompany me to the shipyards? - Better than that, I'll go with you to New Terra, time to stretch my legs.
  7. Captain Cornelius Reyngout was relieved to get a second chance. Released from Bloody Bill’s capture when the Corries paid Bloody Bill’s price for the Heart of Eslandia, Capt Reyngout feared the MCTC would blame him for the loss of the ship. But the lack of proper escort was deemed the problem, and Capt. Reyngout’s reputation was intact. With the activation of the Heart of Eslandia’s sister ship, the Prince Fernando, Capt. Reyngout was once again in command of an elegant, large trader. The Prince Fernando, built back in the youth of the Eslandola king, honors him with a royal crest on the main foresail and a princely figurehead on the bow. And with normal canvas sails that are not blood-red like on the HoE, the ship looks less Corrie-ish than its now Corrie sister ship.
