I. Declaration

Once combat begins it continues a number of rounds until a Captain has lost or has escaped. Each round the players declare which combat action they wish to perform (starting with the aggressor i.e. the Captain that engaged the battle). The first round "shoot" is the only available action, but on the subsequent rounds players can choose one of the following actions:

  • Shoot: Try to hit the enemy ship with cannon-fire.
  • Board: Try to board the enemy ship.
  • Flee: Try to escape from the battle.

II. Seamanship Contest

After declaring an action, each player rolls his Captain's Seamanship skill in what is called a Seamanship contest. The Captain who wins the roll (rolls the most successes) out-maneuvers his opponent and gets to perform his selected action. If no Captains get any successes, no one wins - proceed to the next round. …

Quests can score huge amounts of glory. They're much too powerful to ignore. But if you collect too many of them, you may be too weak to accomplish them. You need to strike a balance. …
