Absolutely superb and inspiring! Thanks for sharing with us landlubbers. ;)

It's never late for us landlubbers to join the gentlemen o'fortune!

Really great thread - some of those buildings are very inspirational.

Good on you for tackling all of this build and preparation to get this game off the ground - I know that can be challenging.  :)

Thank you!
Both you and SI have entered great projects and I follow them with attention.
I've made a pause for a some time, your comments are really encouraging to make this project grow.
For sure, I promise that you are going to see these buildings featuring in more games!

That is a WONDERFUL collection of BEAUTIFULLY crafted creations. LOVELY scenery & dashing swashbucklers are the substance of memorable games. Each of your pieces has a personal charm of its own; each bears the mark of your unique technique. OUTSTANDINGLY WELL DONE!

This summer I plan to add another swashbuckling adventure to this thread.
Until then, me hearties!

SECOND RAID OF SAN PADOLFO

-Ahoy ye, biscuit eater! Me lads be shippin' out fer the account! San Padolfo! Thar be booty again!
-Yarr! Me knows what ye talking! Sharpen yer cutlass me heartie!
-Savvy?
-Elmira! The new Governor's daughter!
-Aye! She be gorgeous lass!
-Me bettin' a hoghshead Porto wine! Elmira, she'll be mine!
-Blow me down if me schooner don't be sailin' thar first!
-Avast ye, landlubber! Yer ship be boomin' about!
-All hands on deck! We be sailing!


This was the dialogue between the two main characters: Blueberry Sam and Yellowbeard Jack.
They are quarreling again! Their field of action?
San Padolfo! Again!
Their prize?

The Governor's Daughter!

The characters:

Blueberry Sam:  Captain of the brigantine "Halcyone". Blueberry? He started hunting for blueberries since a captured ship's doctor prescribed them for scurvy. A few years ago, his crew dumbed him on a desert island where he stayed marooned for a week. He managed to survive, searching in his thick beard for blueberry leftovers. He was saved from scurvy, too.

Jack Yellowbeard: Sam's friend and antagonist. Captain of the pirate sloop "Hermione". Also called the "custard", as he likes to savour at least five cups of custard cream per day. He is sure that this is the reason his beard is so yellow! He went furious when he learned that, in San Padolfo, the local inns are serving custard with blueberries!

Lord Ruffingston: The Governor. Governor? Ruffingston was a humble rabbit breeder in Britain, but went bankrupt when the government raised the taxes of rabbit food. He sailed to San Padolfo dressed with a rabbit fur coat and the locals thought he was the new Governor. The real governor never arrived, as after the treaty between Spain, France and England, everybody neglected the small island of San Padolfo. After all, it was not charted in any map, and still it remains till nowadays I'm afraid so. He pretends to be a Lord and the Governor. And his daughter is... OMG!

Elmira: The Governor's daughter. Her beauty is blinding! Her body? The statue of an Ancient Greek Goddess! Her kiss?  :-*
I'd better... stop... now!  ;) And, of course, everybody wants her!  :o
But Elmira is watchful. She has been informed of the impending raid and she has disappeared from her house! Where is she?
Even I, dear reader, who am going to be the umpire of this exciting game, frankly I say, I don't know!

Major Peepington: The officer of the City Guard. He thinks he has an imaginary affair with Elmira, but she doesn;t want even to look at him! He doesn't stop visiting the Governor's, always with some cheap pretext, just to pass by Elmira's room and... peep!  lol

Horatio Vesselbloom: Captain of HMS ship "La Meduse" - a captured French ketch. He stuck once his frigate at the Eleuthera shallows. For ever. The Admiralty gave him a second chance. Why? Does his small name make you any sense? Ah, his godfather was a prominent man, and the Admiralty is very sensitive to situations as such. Lord Ruffingstone has promised him his daughter, but Elmira doesn't want him, either!


Secondary characters: We will see if they will play some role in the game:

-Teofilo Birindelli, the only priest, vicar of the only island church, of San Padolfo, of course!
-Matthias Sturmhotz, the carpenter, Elmira's uncle (from her mother, if you are so curious to know).
-Ricardo Lamoyo, everywhere you touch him, you must wash your hands! Formerly sentenced to prison for life, a renegade, a smuggler, an agitator, a... BASTA!
-Van Neerdoel, the barman. His Dutch shoulders are more square than Pythagora's square theorem. Ready to face off any man who approaches...
-Moira: Her barmaid. Although 50+, Moira is  the second most beautiful woman in the island.  ;D
(If you suspect that there is no third, I tell you that there is at least one more, the carpenter's wife - see carpenter's house in the front pages).
Moira is a dancer. "Dance" helps you stay healthy. "So you think you can dance" helps you stay awake.

Before we proceed with the story, dear readers, I invite you to have some glimpses to this magnificent table:

The unfinished fort.
If you want my truth, it will remain unfinished forever.
France stopped financing its construction.
Spain ignores it totally.
Britain refuses to take responsibility of such an... irresponsible island.

The prison door.
The prison is under the seashore battery.
