Not two years in-game after not being able to purchase a better ship because of some bug, I have a string of corsairs run the train on my ship and its crew, breaking apart her hull and costing me all but my last few coppers to rebuild her.
We spent months filling contracts to make enough silver to keep her afloat, and every time we got her back in working order another corsair would come along and wreck us again.
We were on our way north from the Starfall Sea, trying to take care of a delivery in Dunbar, for some reason or another my marker was in the middle of the ocean looking like I had a damn contract. I search and come face to face with the Champion of Iniquity. The crew panics and it's all I can do to keep them from jumping ship. We flee, of course. And for some stupid reason I decide to search the damn square again. Don't ask me why.
Face to face with another damn Ice Demon. We run. I decide to search the god-forsaken square one more time, just in case, and we come right up against a Kraken.
We only had 2 Mast remaining, so my attempts to flee were for naught and in a single round of combat the beast sent us to the depths. So ends that foolish Pirate's life.
I don't care it this thread is a few months old and no answer, I'm still putting mine in... I also barely looked at the date, might even be a few years old for all I know.
So, playing as a merchant, and whatnot, doing stuff, when there was a shortage of gold nearby, along with a surplus a little ways off. So I went to the surplus, and halfway there... a Kraken. I couldn't escape, I don't really know why, it wrecked my ship, but miraculously, I escaped in the end... almost there, I can see it!... pirates... like, the pirate faction, pirates. My ship was wrecked by the Kraken, they finished it off... took all my gold... okay, I got it from a surplus, I'll just had to the nearby port... a warship for the east Acadian company... they'd gotten tired of me not submitting to their ships... they arrested me... then came the mutiny... I was badly wounded, morale low... okay, just... it'll take time, but I can regain my losses... for God's sake... another pirate destroyed my hull, and I sunk into the deep... Oh well, I'll just make a better merchant... probably.
There you go, Resistor. Now people won't mistake us!
